From journalists who have been able to get these reports is that people are being killed, people are being tortured people are being cremated. You know, people are not allowed to practice religion people are being stopped from, for example, Muslim people are not allowed to call their children by Muslim names. guys crazy man, they

00:00:19--> 00:00:22

you know, they're trying to get rid of the Quran as something to be read.

00:00:23--> 00:00:45

I didn't want seen doing these things is immediately branded as extremist. Yeah. And again and again, Muslim woman, woman to marry Chinese men practicing Yeah, non Muslim men. Yeah, there was actually a picture which I saw, which I don't know if it was authentic. But these are the things that we're hearing. And they go to these classes, man, and they taught like,

00:00:47--> 00:00:48

if I'm mistaken.

00:00:50--> 00:00:58

One second Human Rights Watch says that illegal people in particular are subject to intense surveillance, and are made to give DNA and biometric samples.

00:00:59--> 00:01:22

And all this kind of stuff. They've been taught about the Mandarin Chinese language, the culture, they're told to criticize the towards criticism of the culture, and sing patriotic songs. They're taught the Chinese code, Chinese culture sessions they have. So there's all these things that they said they Republic reprogram re brainwashing these people. Yeah, don't forget, there's there's a bit of past I mean, in terms of the history of

00:01:23--> 00:01:28

the weekers, in China, that there is a bit of past and there's a feeling of resentment.

00:01:29--> 00:02:05

You could say, I'm not going to say, you know, it's a major feeling. I haven't done a sociological study to see how many Chinese people what Chinese people think of wiggers, etc. But yes, there's definitely a feeling of suspicion, you know, if we know, if we look at history, like, you know, these individuals go back to the Mongols, you know, the Mongol Empire and attempt, maybe the 1200, something like this, you know, and this is where, how they established themselves in that region. And there was, there was kind of civil unrest between the wiggers and, and others, even in the contemporary period. And so is there seen as,

00:02:07--> 00:02:47

as kind of like separatists, they want to be their own nation to have their own flag suggested flag, which kind of looks like the Somali flag is, with a Yeah, so it's all of these things together, you know, make this a culture of suspicion. So programs like this right, become much easier for people because the populace is not going to be outraged by that, like the mainstream Chinese population is not is not a staging, you know, protests, etc, on this matter? Because there is that history. There's that feeling of Okay, well, culturally, they're different to us anyways. And so there's two issues. One is that why is this not being reported? As I think you kind of asked in the beginning,

00:02:48--> 00:03:10

number one, because the Chinese don't care about it too much. You know, it's Frankly, I mean, they haven't shown unless we have not been shown what they, you know, we haven't we haven't seen big protests or statements of condemnation. Maybe Maybe it's because it's there's a fear of the transformation that very, first is a very possibly, but we haven't seen much going on in China, frankly,

00:03:11--> 00:03:48

in terms of the international community. Once again, we haven't seen what this serious silence, the silence is deafening, you know, from international leaders and the international community, in terms of even media streams and stuff like that, once again, we don't see much. The question is why? And the answer is, it doesn't fit into the western narrative, the elitist Western narrative, you know, we went to Iraq because the Muslim population have been oppressed. We came to liberate them and get rid of Saddam. Yeah, we can do that with the light. But there's more to it than that. The narrative is that wherever you find Muslims, you find the oppression and you find them being the oppressors.

00:03:48--> 00:04:06

So the Muslim always have to be the Goliath in this situation. But hey, when a Muslim is a minority being oppressed and killed and tortured and persecuted in in a country like China, then let's let's be silent about it, because we don't want to be, you know, we don't want to jeopardize the trade deals we have with China.
