China tortures millions of Muslims at home and protects terrorists in Pak: says USA

China might be an all-weather ally to Pakistan but the manner in which they are treating Muslims in their country is horrible. United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday hit out at China for its “shameful hypocrisy” towards Muslims. He said that China is leaving no stone unturned to torture and abuse more than millions of Muslims at home and at the same time, it is protecting Islamic terror groups.

“On one hand, China abuses more than a million Muslims at home, but on the other, it protects violent Islamic terrorist groups from sanctions at the UN [United Nations],” he said in a tweet.

In today’s world, global countries are opposed to China’s beliefs and ideologies. China was in the receiving end when it repeatedly voted against declaring Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar, who claimed responsibility for the February 14 Pulwama terror attack, a global terrorist.

Today, Beijing is under heavy criticism for the way it treats Uighur minority and there is no equality spread in the nation. After meeting a former prisoner who has told about the alleged torture of Uighur’s in China, Pompeo tweeted: “China must release all those arbitrarily detained and end its repression.”

It should be noted that the north-western Xinjiang region is home to more than 10 million members of the Uyghur Muslim minority group and several reports have suggested that the Uyghur community is being discriminated against 2 million people who have been forced into “political camps for indoctrination” in the region. But Beijing has claimed that the reports of torture were false.
