Inside China’s ‘thought transformation’ camps – BBC News


UN committee heard the plight of Muslims of China:

“…up to one million Uighur Muslims and other Muslim groups could be being [sic] detained in the western Xinjiang region, where they’re said to be undergoing “re-education” programmes.

Unequivocal support for Muslims of China:

We subscribe to pluralism and peaceful coexistence and acknowledge the freedom and rights of every individual or community or race to believe as they choose to believe without coercion, fear and intimidation. Therefore, we unequivocally condemn the suffering, torture and internment of Uighur Muslims because of their ethnicity & religion and call for an urgent halt to these atrocities.
As Muslims we should decry the atrocities committed against our brothers and sisters in Islam. As British citizens, we are ALL entitled to representation by our MPs. This short article will, Insha’Allah, walk you through the process of engaging with your local MP and urging your MP to express your wishes in Parliament.
We advise our fellow citizens in United Kingdom to consider the following plan:

Spiritual Action Plan for Muslims in Britain:

We are Muslims therefore our first reaction in any situation should be to reflect upon our actions and to turn to Allah Ta’ala in seeking forgiveness and to beseech Him for his assistance and help. We urge all Muslims in Britain to repent and make sincere Dua to Allah Ta’ala to help the Muslims in China.

Encourage your family, friends and community to perform individual prayers and even organise Qunut Nazilah in your communities.

Spend your money and give Sadaqah in addition to your Duas to invite the Mercy of Allah Ta’ala.

Change your life for the better and do your best to come closer to Allah Ta’ala by fulfilling His commandments and following the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).
