A prominent Islamic Organisation in Asia has launched a new platform to campaign against the Uyghur minority persecution by Communist China.

 

Malaysian Consultative Council for Islamic Organisation which gathers co-believers in the sixth biggest Islamic country in South Asia has informed on Monday about the establishing of Uighur Against Genocide Forum.

The Islamic forum, in its statement, called the China’s atrocities in Xinjiang the western Islamophobic policies. We abhore the measure to treat highhandedly against the Uighur on a pretext of cracking down the alleged separatist movement and labelling them terrorists, the statement said.

The authors of the statement said that they are determined to highlight the testimonies of the victims in East Turkestan and challenged the Beijing claims of the re-education camps in the absence of journalism in China.

The MAPAI, as the organiser of the forum is called at home, urged Muslim nations and civil societies to be firm in regard to the Uighur genocide and to the Chinese government to halt the impunity.

The founders of the forum called upon the Muslim nations
to be firm in their position
to address the Uyghur genocide
and to be not compromised by the Beijing investment.



We are of the position that the world community cannot be silenced from expressing the plight of the Uighur even though China has persistently denied that the Uyghurs are treated unjustly, the statement of the non-governmental organisation said.

The founders of the forum called upon the Muslim nations to be firm in their position to address the issues of the Uyghur and to be not compromised by the Beijing investment.

We call for civil societies around the world to send a strong message to the Chinese government to halt the impunity and restore the rights of the Uyghurs for equal treatment and justice, the founders stressed.

Malaysian Consultative Council of Islamic Organisation, that is umbrella for 200 Islamic groups, was established in 2012.

Malaysia is home to the sixth biggest group of 19,500,000 Islamic believers, who constitute 61 per cent country's population in South Asia. It follows Indonesia, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan.
