"White House considers penalties over human rights issue, the treatment of Uighur Muslims"


"The AP reports an estimated 1 million Uighurs and other Muslims have been detained in interment camps in Xinjiang province for indoctrination by the officially atheist government, and their plight is a cause of growing international concern."

China does not have freedom of religion, even though they say they do.

They do not allow the practice of religion outside of what they can see and control. The put portraits of their president at the altar of churches. They really want to stamp out all religions that are not the state religion.

This includes Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, anyone.

If they had their way, we wouldn't be able to report these things or even talk about it on the internet.

I thought Trump was anti Muslim....????

Are these actual Chinese citizens the article didn't have a lot of details.  
Can these people be relocated to a Muslim country, are they free to leave and practice their religion in a country that will allow it?

China has a forced integration policy. Conform or die, there is no escape.

They also have very low crime. People actually fear going to jail there unlike the USA.

The Uighurs are a Muslim Turkic minority group that lives on the edges of China (in Xinjiang, closer to the rest of Central Asia than to historical China), and have for at least a millennium. The modern-day country of China consists of the historical Han heartland plus Manchuria, Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Tibet, and Macau. These areas are not historically Chinese, being culturally distinct with their own unique ethnic groups, religions, and traditions. China rules territories like Macau (historically Portuguese) and Hong Kong with a large degree of autonomy, but comes down quite harder on other areas, the main ones being Tibet and Xinjiang, where the Chinese government tries to erase local religion and anything else that it sees as a possible source of conflicted loyalty. So they could leave, but it'd be the equivalent of kicking all of the French people out of France.
