Hello Friends,

Egypt must stop the forceful Detention of Uyghur Students to China!

  In a shocking move by the Egyptian authorities, dozens of students from China's minority Muslim Uighur community living in Egypt are being detained. This has raised fears that they will be returned to China and arrested. No reasons of these arrests have been given yet. The arrests began July 2 and since then mostly male Uighur students have been detained during raids on shops, restaurants and student accommodation in Cairo. Uighurs were also detained in Cairo and Alexandria airports as they tried to flee the country after the arrest began.

  China has always been questioned about its intentions for Uighur Muslims as the crackdown on the community is growing day by day. In the past few months, the Chinese government had ordered Uighur students studying abroad, including those in Egypt, to return home. There are reports that Chinese authorities have detained family members of these students to force them to come back.

  It is still unclear what caused the mass detentions by Egyptian authorities this week. The basis of this treatment, and their whereabouts and well-being, are unclear, but many of them may face imminent deportations. Human rights organizations are giving statements and taking actions but this alone will not be enough , until you resolute to Stand With Uyghurs.

  Sign this petition to ask Egypt to stop the detaining Uyghur students immedietly and reveal the details of the once who are already been detained. We will forward this petition to the Egyptian Government and will also remain in touch with Human rights groups working on the same.

Do share this petition on social media, each sign counts and each voice brings us closer to justice.
