Uighurs Wee-Gurs: Training Centres and Muslim Identity
uighurs wee-gurs: The far northwestern region is closed to outsiders, but former residents and activists abroad say mere expressions of Muslim identity are punished, according to CTV. Criticism has grown over China's internment of an estimated 1 million Uighurs WEE-gurs and members of other predominantly Muslim ethnic groups. The lengthy report said the government's efforts have curbed religious extremism but gave little evidence of what crimes had occurred. China describes the camps as vocational training centres and says participation is voluntary. The camps sprang up over the past two years at extraordinary speed and on a massive scale, as monitored by satellite imagery. Former detainees say they were held in abusive conditions, forced to renounce Islam and swear allegiance to China's ruling Communist Party. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
