Amnesty International, a human rights organization has accused China for committing crimes against humanity in its Xingjiang Province regarding the mass detention of Uyghur’s, Kazakhs, and other Muslims. The minority of the Muslims have been tortured and kept under surveillance.
The secretary of Amnesty International, Agnes Callamard, blames the Chinese Government for creating “a dystopian hellscape on a staggering scale”.
Millions of people have been brainwashed and tortured inside so called “internment camps” while million others spent their daily lives in fear amid the vast surveillance system.
Even UN Secreatary General António Guterres has been accused of failing to act according to his mandate.
A similar report released by Human Rights Watch in April too believes that the Chinese Government has committed crimes against humanity.
The crackdown in Xinjiang that began in 2017 has resulted in detention of millions of Uyghur’s and other Muslims, where they are tortured both physically and psychologically.
The alleged government has also been accused of conducting forced sterilization, abortion and population transfer to lessen the number of birth rates of the Muslim community.
Despite all the allegations, the Chinese government denies the legitimacy of the accusations against its government stating that its camps are voluntary vocational and de-radicalization programs.
