    Uuum, but this is something weird about some of these ethnic groups, which was copied from, guess who: The Whites. That's what the Europeans did during colonisation. So people move into a particular location and by becoming the majority, they end up colonising the location. That is what happened in Minnesota, and they ended up with a representative in the house. So, basically, when it works to their advantage, it's not a problem, and when it doesn't work, it all of a sudden is a problem? That is fucking illegal.

    China is bribing Islamic countries’ silence on this issue by offering thousands of scholarships for students to study in china 🇨🇳 And, Muslim students, when you visit China don’t mention Islam or the Uighur genocide in Xinjiang. Just praise Xi Jinping (not Allah) and all will be fine 👍🏼 🇨🇳 and don’t type anything controversial on WeChat or it’ll be removed. Self-censorship is vital in China. Good luck in your support of the Chinese communist party 🇨🇳

    Biden about this matter - I point out to him no American president can be sustained as a president, if he doesn’t reflect the values of the United States. And so the idea that I am not going to speak out against what he’s doing in Hong Kong, what he’s doing with the Uighurs in western mountains of China and Taiwan - trying to end the one China policy by making it forceful … [Xi] gets it. Culturally there are different norms that each country and their leaders are expected to follow... Its their Cultural norm to commit genocide folks.

      @aufumy no worries, friend. Thank you for your discernment.

    • aufumy

      @Jay Thomas sorry I used the heading and put it into Google, and came upon a page which mentioned the Kiraya Idkah Mosque was demolished as the first item, which turned out to be false. The page you link to calls it "Keriya Aitika" . Though they didn't destroy the heritage mosque, they did destroy the northern gatehosue rebuilt in the 90s. So yes, it looks like a small number of the 20 000+ mosques might be destroyed / replaced with apartment / office buildings. I'm not sure if this happens in Muslim countries, this post seems to suggest, that it also happens in Saudi Arabia, though I don't know the name of the mosques that were demolished to build roads, for example Likely though in Saudi Arabia, they would make sure to rebuild another newer mosque elsewhere. So I would be curious to find out if China is building any new mosques.

    • Jay Thomas
      Jay Thomas

      @aufumy I do not mention the mosque you pasted. This was the Baytullah mosque: It was 800 years old and was demolished, not under repair. I never said all mosques were demolished either. Uyghur may continue to attend certain mosques with a penalty to their social score. They are also not allowed to invite family or bring children. I am one person of one city but I have seen testimony and recording of this behavior throughout the region, even seeing Han guards that will monitor who enters and leaves.

    • aufumy

      you know that the first entry on your list the "Idkah mosque" the largest Mosque in China is re-opened? many of the mosques that you list are also re-opened. In an area that has 30 000 mosques, do you think that there will never be any that are shutdown or under construction? Is that a reasonable assumption?

      The Chinese ambassador already explained it doesn't mean anything other than they were criminals transferring to another location.

You mean in your country, criminals and terrorists are transferred to different prisons in chauffered limousines?
