Uyghur genocide

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Repression of Uyghurs in China (sometimes called the Uyghur Genocide) is all the human rights violations in Xinjiang that are hurting Uyghurs. This is being done by the Chinese government. It is estimated that there are more than a million Uyghurs being persecuted. Some governments and human rights NGOs (organisations that aren't governments) call the repression against Uyghurs a genocide (destroying a group of people).[1][2][3][4] Not everybody agrees that the repression is a genocide though.[5][6][7]

The Uyghurs

Thousands of mosques are being destroyed and damaged. Hundreds of thousands of children are being sent to boarding schools.
