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).

Political Action Plan for Muslims in Britain:

This short arti­cle will, Insha’Allah, walk you through the process of engag­ing with polit­i­cal and oth­er organ­i­sa­tions, and your MP urg­ing them to express your wish­es in Par­lia­ment.
