Extremism Turns Uyghur Women ‘Machines Making …


BEIJING – A new report from China claiming that keeping Uighurs in concentration camps in Xinjiang is a positive step. The move is even claimed to help awaken Uighur women from extremism that they are not “baby making machines”.

The Chinese government is taking what Western media describes as cruel measures to cut birth rates among Uighurs and other minorities as part of a massive campaign last year to curb its Muslim population. (Read: China Taunts US Capitol Riots: ‘Beautiful Scenery’ )

A report from China expert Adrian Zenz in June 2020 found that women were forced to be sterilized or provided with contraceptives. The report from Zenz comes as about a million people are thought to have been detained over the past few years in what the Chinese state defines as “re-education camps”.

Instructions given to the camps, which were leaked to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists in 2019, make it clear that the camps should be run as high-security prisons with strict discipline, penalties and no escape.

“This is actionable evidence documenting grave human rights violations,” Sophie Richardson, China director at Human Rights Watch, said at the time.

“I think it’s fair to describe every person detained as subject to torture at least psychologically, because they simply don’t know how long they’ll be there.”

Although the country initially denied the existence of the camps, later defended itself by declaring them a necessary measure to fight terrorism following separatist violence in the Xinjiang region. (Also read: Capitol Chaos, Chinese Media Call the US Internal Collapsing )

But the new study, published by the Xinjiang Development Research Center on Thursday, claims extremism has incited people to reject family planning (KB) and that its eradication has given Uighur women more autonomy when deciding whether to have children.

“For a period of time, the penetration of religious extremism made implementing family planning policies in southern Xinjiang, including Kashgar and Hotan prefectures, extremely difficult,” wrote China Daily, a publication owned by the Chinese Communist Party, cites the results of the study.

“It has led to rapid population growth in these areas as some extremists incited local residents to reject family planning policies, resulting in the prevalence of early marriage and bigamy, as well as frequent unplanned births,” the report continued.

The report also denied that population changes in Xinjiang were caused by “forced sterilization”. “On the contrary, the process of eradicating extremism has liberated the minds of Uyghur women,” the study added.

“Gender equality and reproductive health are promoted, making them no longer baby-making machines,” the report continued. “Women have since tried to be healthy, confident, and independent.”

In contrast, Zenz’s report accuses Uighur and other ethnic minority women who refuse to abort a pregnancy that exceeds the birth quota of being threatened with detention in the camps.

“Since the massive crackdown that began in late 2016 turned Xinjiang into a ruthless police state, witness reports of disturbing state interference into reproductive autonomy have been scattered everywhere,” the Zenz report said.

“Overall, it is likely that the Xinjiang authorities are involved in the mass sterilization of women with three or more children.”

Former detainee at Xinjiang camp told AP that they had been subjected to forced IUDs in detention camps, and what appeared to be birth prevention shots, while others were force-fed birth control pills or injected with fluids, often without explanation.

“The goal may not be to completely eliminate the Uyghur population, but it will greatly reduce their vitality,” said University of Colorado Uyghur expert Darren Byler. AP at the time.

“This will make it easier for them to assimilate into the mainstream Chinese population.”

Joanne Smith Finley, from the University of Newcastle England, told: AP, however, that it was “genocide”.

“This is not immediate, shocking, mass murder on the spot, but slow and painful genocide,” he said. “This is a direct way to genetically reduce the Uyghur population.”
