Protecting violent terrorist groups at UN and abusing Muslims at home: US Secretary of State slams China for its “Shameful hypocrisy”

Pompeo on Tuesday met Mihrigul Tursun, a Uighur who had publicly revealed about the nature of Chinese detention camps for Ughyur Muslims and the widespread torture that is being inflicted on them in these camps.

Taking a strong note over the increasing Human Rights abuse against minority Uighur Muslims by China, the United States of America on Wednesday issued a stern statement lashing out at China and accusing it of “abusing” Muslims in their country while protecting Islamic terrorist groups from sanctions at the United Nations.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo condemned China’s “shameful hypocrisy” over its treatment of Muslims as he met survivors and family members who were abused in Chinese detention camps as part of a policy of Beijing to persecute Ughyur Muslims.

Secretary Pompeo also slammed the hypocrisy of China with respect to its policy towards Muslims by referring to China’s repeated attempts to block the proposal to designate Pakistani terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed’s chief Masood Azhar as a ‘global terrorist’ by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

“China must release all those arbitrarily detained and end its repression. The world cannot afford China’s shameful hypocrisy toward Muslims. On one hand, China abuses more than a million Muslims at home, but on the other hand, it protects violent Islamic terrorist groups from sanctions at the UN,” Pompeo tweeted.

Pompeo on Tuesday met Mihrigul Tursun, a Uighur who had publicly revealed about the nature of Chinese detention camps for Ughyur Muslims and the widespread torture that is being inflicted on them in these camps.

Reportedly, Pompeo has further asked China to release all ethnic groups that they have arbitrarily detained in those detention camps. “China has detained more than one million Uyghurs, ethnic Kazakhs, and other Muslim minorities in internment camps in Xinjiang since April 2017,” he said.

China was sharply criticized for its human rights violation over mass detention of members of the Muslim Uighur community at a United Nations Human Rights Council meeting recently. Western governments, including those in Europe, the United States, and Canada had taken a serious stand against China for its human rights abuse in Xinjiang province.

Even Islamic countries like Turkey are standing against China’s human rights abuse. The Turkish government issued a stern statement condemning China for violating the fundamental human rights of Uighur, Turks and other Muslim communities in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region.

Uighurs are a Turkish-Muslims ethnic group living in Xinjiang, the largest and most western of China’s administrative regions surrounded by Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. The Xinjiang autonomous region in China has had a long history of discord between the authorities and the indigenous ethnic Uighur population.
