A REMINDER THAT BEIJING IS STILL RUN BY COMMUNISTS: China’s Muslim Detention Camps Spark Protests in Islamic World.

Muslim groups in India and Bangladesh held protests over the Chinese camps for the first time this month after former inmates began to talk publicly about their treatment, including being bound to chairs for hours on end and forced to renounce Islamic beliefs.

In Kazakhstan, many people were also outraged, and local lawyers and activists say hundreds of people have lobbied their government for help, following the detention of several Kazakh citizens and many more ethnic Kazakh Chinese nationals in the camps.

Hizb ut-Tahrir, an Islamist group that claims a million members in 40 countries, called on Muslims this month to be wary of Chinese investment and to oppose Chinese rule in Xinjiang.

On Saturday, the group accused Pakistan’s government of betraying the Uighurs for the sake of China’s infrastructure program in the country, known as the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, or CPEC.

“Should the Muslims of Pakistan quietly observe the persecution of Uighur Muslims for the sake of CPEC and China?” it asked.

The dark night of fascism is always descending in the United States and yet lands pretty much anywhere else.
