It is estimated that over one million Uyghurs, and other ethnic minority Muslim groups, have been detained in a massive network of concentration camps in Xinjiang.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Officers impounded a shipment this week of over $800,000 in wigs and other products made from human hair, which are believed to have come from Uyghur Muslim women at forced labor camps in Xinjiang, China.
Brenda Smith, an executive assistant commissioner of the CBP Office of Trade, said that the production of these goods constitutes a grave human rights violation. She also affirmed that the shipment has been detained to send a message to all entities seeking to do business with the U.S. that inhumane and illicit practices will not be tolerated in supply chains.
This is the second time this year that the CBP has seized products from China suspected to have been made from Muslim prisoners’ hair.

“If this highly suspicious, 13-ton shipment of human hair indeed turns out to be linked to the Uyghur concentration camps, then this is a new low – even for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) – and they will have to answer to the world community for their actions,” said National Security Council (NSC) spokesperson John Ullyot.

Who are Uyghurs, and where is Xinjiang?

Xinjiang is an autonomous territory in the northwest of China, bordering Pakistan and other countries, and is home to around 11 million Uighurs, a Turkic Muslim ethnic group.
It is estimated that over one million Uyghurs, and other ethnic minority Muslim groups, have been detained in a massive network of concentration camps in Xinjiang.

The ethnic minority Muslims are reportedly “subjected to torture, plus cruel and inhumane treatment. They are also victims of physical and sexual abuse, forced labor, sleep deprivation, lack of food, and forced injections. In some cases, they have known to be murdered.

  • @Ahmed Waseem,

    Really you still think this is propaganda?
    The Satellite pictures showing razed down mosques, detention centers, hundreds of videos showing police check points and notices on walls of remaining mosques, testimonies from Uighurs that are abroad, and China not denying the leaked govt document that detailed the torture and brainwashing methods of the detention camp, are all propaganda?

     

     

  • Give me a break. Next they will confiscate hijabs from these women. Maybe that’s why China buys so much pork from US, to force feed to the Muslims. Let’s have a DNA proof of these hair.
