The Chinese government is suspected of committing human rights violations against the ethnic Uighur minority

The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) regrets the Chinese government's closure of alleged human rights violations against ethnic Uighur minorities who live in Xinjiang Province.

"MUI regrets the information about the arbitrary actions of the Chinese government against Uighur Muslims," ​​said Abdullah Jaidi, Chairman of the Central MUI in Jakarta, Friday, December 21, 2018.

The United Nations Human Rights Committee previously said there were one million Uighur Muslims held by the Beijing government without legal process. According to a member of the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, Gay McDougall, Uighur autonomous regions were changed like camps.

There the detainees were required to swear an oath of loyalty to Chinese President Xi Jinping. According to other reports, they were also forced to shout the Communist Party slogan. Reportedly, the prisoners were not properly fed. The UN also received reports of torture against detainees.

The Chinese government acknowledges detaining a number of people. But they argued that this action was an effort to prevent terrorism.

According to Abdullah, until now China has not provided clarification about the alleged repressive actions against Uighurs. He regretted that China did not give clear information about its policies for Uighurs.

"This Uighur is against the government, which is unfortunate that China does not clarify clearly to the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. There is no clarity that various parties convey the real conditions that trigger Muslim concern in various parts of the world, including Indonesia," Abdullah said.

In addition, according to Abdullah, from a number of reports the international institutions of religious freedom of the Uighur were restricted to China. This he calls contrary to human rights based on the International Convenant on Social and Political Rights.
