This Ramadan, to show solidarity with China’s marginalised and oppressed Uighur community, human rights groups and Muslim organizations are urging U.S. Muslims to boycott products made in China as a protest against Beijing’s crackdown against fasting years back.
“People say, ‘Oh, I can’t boycott China, everything is made in China” – said director of outreach for the non-profit Justice for All, Hena Zuberi.
Hina is the founder of this campaign called Fast From China – calling for a boycott of Chinese products this Ramadan.
”Well, we have the spiritual wherewithal to refrain from eating and drinking during the day in Ramadan. This is a time to control your nafs (self).”

Sound Vision Foundation’s Save Uighur project, on April 19th, launched Fast From China campaign to encourage Muslims to rethink their purchasing decisions and encourage them to show solidarity with the oppressed.
“It’s important for Americans to realize that they benefit from the open market, but they’re not opening their minds towards freedom of religion, human rights and due process of law” – said Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid, head of the Sound Vision Foundation.
This upcoming Ramadan, let's not just fast from food and water, but also products made in China. This will be a big step forward in challenging China's genocide of Uyghurs and other Turkic people. #FastFromChina pic.twitter.com/MzCVVvwo9p

“Ramadan is a time when people develop a higher level of connection and consciousness. Being hungry reminds us of the bigger picture of humanity.” – Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid added.
Participants of Fast From China want to make the Chinese persecuted Muslims feel owned as the criminal silence of the world has pushed them against the wall.
