China is arresting muslims. It’s been revealed that the Chinese government has arrested approximately 1 million muslims to take them to concentration camps. There, they are forced to study and are tortured both, physically and psychologically.
Why do the Chinese do this to them? In this region, Muslims have a long history of conflict with the Chinese government.
The reason? They are a threat to the Chinese government because they want Xinjiang to become an independent state from China.
What is the Chinese president saying?
These are re-education camps. No one is forced to attend. We are just trying to fight against Islamist extremism after the increase in terrorist attacks in recent years.
Well.. that is not really true and some countries have urged China to give the UN immediate access to detention camps.
PS: We recommend this short video (11 minutes) in which the BBC’s visit uncovers important evidence about the nature of the system and the conditions for the people inside it. China concentration camps explained
