He said that the Chinese government’s policy which is gripping caused the position of the race to be compromised, in fact the eradication of the ethnicity is also being done.

“Whoever speaks Uyghur will be suppressed because the Chinese government wasnts to get rid of the Turkistan identity from the republic.

“If you oppress your own people, what more to other races. That is why when we look at the people in China, they usually do not dare to challenge the government.

“Their lives are more individual,” he said in a special interview with Selangor Kini recently.

“Oppression does not happen to Islam only, but also other religions in general.

“It is related to the political and cultural issue, but in this context, is it because they are accused of being separatists or different in terms of culture, so do we just close our eyes to the oppression happening to either Muslims or other ethnic groups in China?” he asked.
