We talk to Uyghur American activist, Aydin Anwar about the persecution Uyghur Muslims in East Turkestan are facing at the hands of the Chinese government

Aydin Anwar is an Uyghur-American activist and a 4th year undergraduate at Duke University majoring in International Comparative Studies. She has focused a lot of her work on the plight of East Turkestan and its occupation through her fieldwork of Uyghur refugees in Turkey and organizing and speaking at conferences. She has appeared on Al-Jazeera, TRT World, and Now This – with her most recent piece regarding the concentration camps gaining over 60 million views worldwide. She also recently launched a fundraiser campaign to support Uyghur orphans and women in Turkey and has raised over $71,000.

Uighur Muslims in China need freedom from concentration camps and slave labor.

Instead of calling for their freedom now we have prominent Muslims Leaders providing justification for these concentration camps. In his recent trip to China, the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) said, “China has the right to take anti-terrorism and de-extremism measures to safeguard national security.”

MBS’s remarks were an insult to the whole Ummah. Where our brother and sisters are being subjugated to torture, humiliation, rape and death by the Chinese, MBS not only provided legitimacy but also gave a green light to the Chinese to continue these horrific acts.
