The otherwise well-researched original article, which is quoted here, has the title: Muslim countries are not only silent but also complicit in China’s crimes against the Uyghurs. Concerning ”Muslim countries,” it is clear that the inhabitants of those countries have no say in the politics of their own states, as they are mostly ruled by dictators, crooks, and disbelievers (kafirs). Of course, some are better than others, but most are worse.
We use the expression ”Muslim politicians” or more accurate ”the political leaders of Muslim majority countries” instead of ’Muslim leaders’, because a leader has to have certain minimal ethical qualities and the propensity to care for the Muslim community or ummah. If this care and concern is not made real, then it goes against the most fundamental principles of the dīn ( ≈ religion ) of Islam, that it is one nation or ummah!
2. Quotes From Original Article:
”Blind to the mounting wave of evidence concerning atrocities against the Uyghurs, Muslim nations continue not only to turn a blind eye to the suffering of their fellow believers but also lavish praise on their persecutors.
”The Taliban takeover of Afghanistan and its kowtowing to China, not only over its wealth of subterranean treasures but also over the fate of hundreds of Uyghurs on its soil, has again put the spotlight on the Islamic world and its silence over the atrocities in Xinjiang.
”Blind to the mounting "tidal wave" of evidence concerning atrocities against the Uyghurs, crimes that many Western democracies have assessed as genocide, Muslim nations continue not only to turn a blind eye to the suffering of their fellow believers but lavish praise on their persecutors.
□ comment: this is so shameful, and it shows what kind of leaders they are because whoever does not care about the affairs of the Muslims is not one of them.
مَثَلُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ فِي تَوَادِّهِمْ وَتَرَاحُمِهِمْ وَتَعَاطُفِهِمْ مَثَلُ الْجَسَدِ إِذَا اشْتَكَى مِنْهُ عُضْوٌ تَدَاعَى لَهُ سَائِرُ الْجَسَدِ بِالسَّهَرِ وَالْحُمَّى
The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The parable of the believers in their affection, mercy, and compassion for each other is that of a body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.”
Narrated by Al-Nu’man ibn Bashir; Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 6011, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2586
Giving evidence to the recent Uyghur Genocide Tribunal in London, Uyghur Muslim, Abdul Hakim Idris, accused China of wielding its economic might to buy the silence of predominantly Islamic nations, and those nations of capitulating without a struggle.[1 → the corrupt leaders of those nations, see above 1. Intro.]
Refusing to criticise Beijing for widely publicised mass incarcerations, disappearances and its onslaught against religion and culture, Muslim leaders are colluding with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) illusion that crackdowns against Uyghurs are mainly to do with fighting extremism. Playing the terrorism card is convenient, maintains Idris because these leaders avoid having to alienate a wealthy and powerful benefactor and one to whom they are beholden.
.Muslim countries are not only silent but also complicit in China’s crimes against the Uyghurs
3. Muslim Countries
”Crippling loans and ambitious infrastructure projects have ensured that countries of the Organisation Of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), including
– Saudi Arabia,
– the UAE,
– Qatar and
– Algeria, have all, on paper at least, bought into China’s justification of the detention of up to three million of its Turkic Muslims, the abduction of at least half a million of its infants and children, the destruction of mosques and religious sites, the creation of a virtual open prison throughout the entire North-Western region and the widespread enforced sterilisation of its women.”
”Leaders in other Muslim-majority states and territories, such as
– Palestine, and
– the United Arab Emirates, have given their backing to China’s Uyghur policies in the United Nations.”
□ comment: poor, and some are not poor at all, all selling their souls for whatever gain…
4. Examples of Collaboration With China’s Government
[adapted from the article]
– Egypt: Dozens of Uyghur students were sent back to uncertain fates in China.
– Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kirghistan: Countless Uyghurs handed back to China.
– Dubai: secret jail for Uyghurs.
– Pakistan: Forcible repatriation of Uyghurs, 1st case 1997, 14 Uyghurs, executed behind the border.
This case and a trove of 1,546 cases, across 28 countries of detention and deportation between 1997-March 2021, have been compiled by the Oxus Society for Central Asian Affairs and the UHRP in a new report No Space Left To Run launched in June this year (2021).
This database shows that it isn’t just hypocrisy from the leaders of Muslim majority countries, but it is about active collaboration with China.
This is the duplicity of the leaders of Muslim majority countries. With one breath they swear allegiance to their Muslim brothers, whilst at the same time they are still content to receive large handouts from China.
5. Muslims Against the New ‘Masters’
Muslims also don’t like to be enslaved, neither economically, nor socially (surveillance) or politically, neither by their corrupt elites nor by this new sort of empire building from China’s Communist Party.
There is a growing ”worldwide civil society discontent (which is) increasingly sceptical about Chinese political and economic influence in their countries.”
”As China’s narrative of condition-free, debt-free, and sustainable capital unravels, protests in Argentina, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam, among others, should give leaders in Muslim-majority states pause for thought: is it worthwhile to conform to Beijing’s vision of the world in exchange for aid, trade, and investment when citizens increasingly question this policy?”
□ comment: Of course it is not worth it, because these short-sighted politics will lead those countries into new, further dependencies and stagnation.
