Turkey slams 'concentration camps' for Muslims in China

"The policy of systematic assimilation against the Uighur Turks carried out by the authorities of China is a great shame for humanity," Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said late Saturday.  The existence of internment camps was first brought up by the Western media which has been giving extraordinary attention to the subject in recent months amid a growing trade dispute with China.  A UN human rights panel has cited estimates that 2 million Uighurs and Muslim minorities were forced into “political camps for indoctrination” in the western Xinjiang autonomous region. Beijing vehemently denies this as well as other reports that Uighurs are unfairly marginalized and says it is addressing underdevelopment and lack of jobs in heavily Uighur areas such as Xinjiang. Chinese officials have also characterized the camps as “vocational education and employment training centers” for “criminals involved in minor offenses.” China says Xinjiang faces a serious threat from Takfiri militants and separatists who plot attacks and stir up tensions between the mostly Uighur minority who call the region home and the ethnic Han Chinese majority. Resource-rich and strategically located on the borders of Central Asia, Xinjiang is key to China’s growing energy needs. The autonomous region is home to around 10 million Uighurs, accounting for 45 percent of Xinjiang’s population. Estimates put Xinjiang’s coal reserves at about 38 percent of the national total, while it already produces 13 of China’s crude oil output and 30 percent of the country’s natural gas. Turkey's response follows the death of Uighur poet and musician Abdurehim Heyit in custody. "It is no longer a secret that more than one million Uighur Turks, exposed to arbitrary arrests, are subjected to torture and political brainwashing in concentration centers and prisons," Aksoy claimed.  “The re-emergence of concentration camps in the 21st century and China’s systematic assimilation policy toward Uighur Turks are great embarrassment for humanity,” he added. A Human Rights Watch report last September accused the Chinese government of "mass arbitrary detention, torture and mistreatment" of Uighur Muslims. In March 2017, Chinese President Xi Jinping called on military forces to erect a “Great Wall of Steel” around the restive region.

As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
