Muslims call for boycott of Chinese products to oppose atrocity on Uighurs and ban on Ramzan in China

China has been holding its Uighur Muslim population in detention centres, compelling them to unlearn their traditions, shun their Islamic practices and extend their loyalty to Communism

As the month of Ramzan has commenced, many observant Muslims across the world have registered their protest against the Chinese atrocity upon the Uighur Muslims by calling for a boycott of Chinese products during Ramzan. An organised campaign with hashtag #FastFromChina is being run on Twitter, exhorting Muslims around the world to abstain from using products made in China in the month of Ramzan in response to the Chinese maltreatment of Uighur Muslims.

China has been facing the flak from many countries in the world for pursuing cruel policies against the Uighur Muslim population in Xinjiang. Incriminating reports blaming Beijing of interning members of its Muslim population – by “re-educating” them away from their faith have emerged.

In 2015, China had banned civil servants, students and teachers in its mainly Muslim Xinjiang region from fasting during Ramadan and ordered restaurants to stay open.

In a policy paper released by Beijing, it has justified its decision of detaining Uighur Muslims claiming that it has been taken in response to riots and violent attacks that the government has suffered at the hands of Muslim separatists in the Xinjiang province. In these detention centres, Muslims are allegedly compelled to unlearn their cultures, criticise their Islamic practices and extend their loyalty to Xi Jinping’s Communist Party.

In a move against this Chinese inhumanity, #FastFromChina campaign is being run on Twitter. Contending that China proscribes its Uighur population from fasting during Ramzan, the movement urges Muslims to boycott using Chinese products this Ramzan in solidarity with Uighur Muslims those who cannot exercise their Right to Religion. The campaign has also asserted that just like China supported the genocide of Muslims in Burma, it is now committing genocide against the Uighur Muslim population in Xinjiang province.
