Turkey has ethnic and historical relations with Uyghurs, and yet it actively helps the Chinese government in their genocide. It uses Uyghur refugees and their families as canon fodder in Syria and then deports them to China for “deradicalisation”
Right up until 9/11, China officially maintained that there were no extremist activities in East Turkistan. However, when the US declared its ‘war on terror’, China found an excuse to crush the dissent.
Salih Hudayar, the young Prime Minister East Turkistan Government-in-Exile based in the US speaks to geopolitical analyst Mark Kinra about the struggle of Uyghurs for independence, their connection with India and Mahatma Gandhi, and the pressing need for the world, especially the West and Muslims, to stop Uyghurs’ genocide.
