China blames faith of Uyghur Muslims for concentration camps in Xinjiang

New Delhi(DL)/Beijing, September 18 : Justifying its internment camps for Uyghur Muslims, the Chinese Communist Party regime has confessed that it’s subjected, on an average about 1.three mln citizens to re-education from 2014.

The Xi Jinping govt released a ‘white paper’ titled ‘Employment & Labor Rights in Xinjiang’ posted by its State Council Info Workplace.

Although the paper utilized euphemisms like “vocational training centres” for concentration camps & “education & employment training” for coercive mind rewiring practises & person rights abuse, it blamed Islamist radicalism for its policies. The CCP regime argued that concentration camps for Uyghurs have been required because Muslim extremists in Xinjiang believe that their own religion is superior to the laws of the state.

“For historic & a range of normal reasons, Xinjiang has long lagged behind different parts of the nation in development (devt), & there is a huge impoverished public. The 4 prefectures in southern Xinjiang, namely, Hotan, Kashgar, Aksu & Kizilsu Kirgiz, in specific have a poverty-stricken eco-environment, weak economic foundations, & a severe shortfall in employment carrying capability. They’re detected as regions of severe poverty,” the govt paper stated awhile contextualizing the want for concentration camps.

“In addition, terrorists, separatists & religious extremists have long preached that ‘the afterlife is fated’ & that ‘religious teachings are superior to state laws’, inciting the people to resist learning the standard spoken & written Chinese language, refuse modern science, & reject to enhance their own vocational skills, economic circumstances, & the capability to best their own own lives.”

“As a consequence, some of the regional citizens have outdated ideas; they suffer from poverty-stricken education & employability, low employment rates & incomes, & have fell into long-term poverty. Using vocational training, Xinjiang has constructed a huge knowledge-based, skilled & innovative workforce that meets the requirements of the new era,” the CCP stated in its paper.

The CCP confessed that each yr. from 2014 to 2019 Xinjiang “given training sessions” to an average of 1.29 mln urban & rural labour, of that 4,51,400 have been in southern Xinjiang. “The trainees mastered at the least 1 skill with employment potential, & the vast most of them collected vocational qualifications, skill level certificates, (or) specialized skill certificates, allowing them to go on to locate stable employment,” the govt said.

From 2014 to 2019, the overall no. of citizens employed in Xinjiang rose from 11.35 mln to 13.three mln, an rise of 17.Two percent, the paper stated adding that the average annual rise in urban employment has been over 4,71,200 citizens (1,48,000 in southern Xinjiang, accounting for 31.Four percent); & the average annual relocation of surplus rural labor has been over 2.76 mln citizens, of whom nearly 1.68 mln, (or) over 60 per cent, have been in southern Xinjiang.

The Intl. society has popularly condemned China for mass internment of minorities within the Xinjiang area, frequently pointing out just how its ‘education & employment’ programme has been essentially religious & cultural cleaning of Uyghurs by banning their own practises, beliefs & subjecting them to surveillance & obliged sterilisation of ladies.
