The whole world is watching silently as China is killing Uyghurs and other Turkic people. More than 3 million people...


About a week ago, diplomats from 12 countries were invited to visit East Turkestan. We have learned the following information directly from the Uyghur eyewitnesses in our homeland: 

"One type of places the diplomats were allowed and guided to visit are the two mosques in Ürümchi, Dong Koruk Mosque and Southgate (Jenubiy Quwuq) Mosque. Before the diplomats came to Ürümchi, the local government stripped off all of the surveillance cameras from the internall walls of the mosques, and put many Qurans in them. One day before the diplomats visited the mosques, some of the Ürümchi Uyghur residents were ordered to come to the mosques and pray in the next morning. Some Uyghurs were very worried and said that they had followed the CCP’s orders and quit praying long time ago. But the police said that was the party order before and going to the mosque and praying is the party’s new order. And those Uyghurs were ordered to pray and behave as normal as possible. So the local government opened the two mosques to the public, ordered many Uyghurs to come to the mosques and pray. The visiting foreign diplomats visited the two mosques during a period of two days. On the third day, the selected Uyghur residents went to the mosques to pray in the morning, but found many police officiers were guarding the gates of the mosques. When the Uyghur prayers told the police that they were here to pray, the police said the show has been over and they must stay away from the mosques as before." 

It seems that the Chinese government had staged some successful shows for the foreign diplomats during their visit to East Turkestan a week ago, as they claimed in this report: 

The most people in the western country say things from the bottom of their hearts, and do things with honesty, like normal human beings. But the Chinese rulers learned how to control the people and to rule the world with deception at least 2500 years ago

1. This list is composed of Uyghur intellectuals whose imprisonment has been confirmed by the Uyghur diasporas. The imprisonment of some individuals on the list has been investigated by Radio Free Asia; the imprisonment of the other intellectuals listed here has been confirmed by other reliable sources in China and some relatives of detainees in diaspora. 
2. While considerable care has been taking in compiling and checking the list, obstacles have nonetheless been considerable, given the information blockade imposed on Xinjiang (Eastern Turkistan) by the Chinese government. As a result, there may be errors in the list. We ask readers’ help in correcting any such issues, compiling further information on the individuals listed here in, and adding other detained intellectuals to the list. 
3. It is clear that the number of detained intellectuals greatly exceeds the number listed here. This list—and other lists of detained individuals—will be continually revised and expanded. 
4. In January 9th, order are reorganized, after this time the order will be the same, if I add some individuals they should under the “Others” For further information and pictures about imprisoned individuals, please contact Abduweli Ayup.
