In full: 'I begged them to kill me' - ex-Xinjiang detainee Mihrigul Tursun gives testimony in the US

"‘Each time I was electrocuted, my whole body would shake violently and I would feel the pain in my veins." Mihrigul Tursun, a Uyghur Muslim detained in Chinese “political reeducation” camp, gives testimony at a US hearing. ===== "The Chinese Government has long imposed harsh policies against unregistered Christian churches, Uyghur Muslims, Tibetan Buddhists, Falun Gong practitioners and other new religious movements labeled as cults. Set against this grim backdrop, the number of Chinese religious believers has grown rapidly for several decades. In 2016 Chinese President and Communist Party General Secretary Xi Jinping launched a “sinicization” campaign, resulting in unprecedented efforts to manage, control, and even transform the religious practices of tens of millions of China’s citizens. Revised Religious Affairs Regulations took effect in February 2018, and the United Front Work Department (UFWD) took over direct responsibility for religious and ethnic affairs. The UFWD is charged with securing the support of non-Party sectors of society, including religious groups. By placing religion under the direct management of the UFWD and issuing new legal rules to govern religious practice, Xi Jinping has asserted more direct control over religious life in China. In the past year, religious venues were demolished, Bibles burned, and over a million Uyghurs and other Muslim ethnic minorities were interned and many were forced to renounce their religious faith." ====== More at http://www.hongkongfp.com - Hong Kong's only not-for-profit, independent English-language news source.

China's Uyghur Detention Camps: Will I See My Family Again? | Doha Debates

As many as 1.5 million Uyghurs and other Muslims have been detained in "re-education" camps in China. And recently, the United States declared that the Chinese government is committing genocide and crimes against humanity against Uyghurs and other mostly Muslim ethnic minorities. Nur'iman Abdureshid and Ferkat Jawdat escaped to the U.S. but both currently have family members in the camps. In the camps, Ughurs and other Muslims are forced to learn Mandarin, renounce their faith, and pledge loyalty to the Chinese government. The Chinese government maintains it's part of an effort to combat terrorism in the region. This video was originally published in August 2019, using the romanized spelling "Uighur."
