Report by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) regarding what China calls “Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region” (XUAR) states “serious human rights violations” against the Uyghur and “other predominantly Muslim communities” have occurred.
UN releases report years in the making detailing China’s various violations of international humanitarian law. Among the many violations and concerns mentioned in the 45 page document are:
Enforced disappearances, imprisonment and deprivation of liberty whether through denying ability of minorities to travel or placing them in detention facilities and “education centers.”
Attempts to eradicate the religious, cultural and linguistic identity of minorities, and violating their reproductive rights via invasive medical procedures.
Forced labour akin to slavery, violation of privacy, and forced separation of families separating spouses, parents and children and the use of family for reprisals and communal punishments.
These were some of the issues raised in the lengthy report documenting the systemic abuses and genocidal practices of the Chinese government towards predominately Muslim minorities.
