Why should you care?

  • More than 3 million Uyghur Muslims are detained in concentration camps in East Turkistan (a.k.a. Xinjiang, China) where they suffer torture and forced to renounce their Islamic faith.
  • Quran and other Islamic books have been burned, and thousands of Mosques have been demolished or turned into bars.
  • Tens of thousands of children of detainees sent to Chinese orphanages to erase their Muslim identity.
  • Uyghur Muslims are under heavy surveillance. They cannot go to mosques, pray, or fast. Simple Islamic greetings and even Muslim names are banned.
  • Muslim girls are forced to marry non-Muslim Chinese man under the threat of their families being punished if they do not obey.
  • Communist Chinese media portraits Islamic faith of Muslims as a “disease” or “tumor” that needs to be eradicated.

What can you do to help?

  1. Make Dua for Uyghur Muslim brothers and sisters in East Turkistan.
  2. Call your elected U.S. congress delegates. Ask them to support the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2019 (H.R.649 and S.178) in both chambers of Congress. (Very important! Take action now!)
  3. Call on the administration to pressure the Chinese government to close all concentration camps.
  4. Raise awareness among the Muslim community around the world about the current situation of Uyghur Muslims. Promote public awareness through social media, using #Uyghur or #Uighur
  5. Let other Islamic organizations in United States (such as CAIR) to take an action on the matter of Uyghur Muslims.
