The Uyghur issue, which has not been given a place in international discussions in Pakistan, has become a hot topic

On August 10, the “2022 Summit of Heads of State for Global Peace” was held at the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan. A young man who participated in the meeting asked the people on the platform why the topic of “Uyghur Genocide” was not on the agenda of the meeting.

He asked: “We know that the Chinese government is continuing its evil actions in the Xinjiang region, which is right next to our homeland, where cultural genocide is taking place. We know that under the pretext of “anti-terrorism,” China is completely banning the religious beliefs of the local people, imprisoning them in camps, brainwashing them with communist ideology, and making various attempts to transform their people into their own. However, no one dared to raise this issue on behalf of Pakistan. Why is this issue not brought up yet, and not included in the agenda of such important meetings? »

The website of the Global Peace Conference states that the conference is a forum to seek ways to build global peace through multilateral negotiations and solve critical problems in the international community.

As far as we know, the young man who asked the last question about the Uyghurs in the meeting was Muhammad Osman, who just two months ago wore a Uyghur hat and draped the East Turkistan flag on his head and disrupted the “Tangzongza Festival” organized by Chinese students at the Pakistan National University of Science and Technology in Islamabad, where he is studying. A man named Asad.

Muhammad Osman, a young Pakistani who has been trying to broadcast the Uyghur issue in various stages and opportunities in Pakistan, accepted our interview and talked about how he had the courage to do so:

“I heard that this international discussion will be held, and I intended to have the voice of Uyghurs and ask questions at the meeting. In such an important international meeting aimed at promoting global peace, I am angry that no topic about Uyghurs is on the agenda. I waited for the opportunity and after the speech of the invited speaker, Syed Maz Shah, a renowned human rights expert from the Grand University of Karachi, who spoke after the meeting, I asked him yes.

He continued: “In the announcement of the keynote speakers invited to this conference, Syed Maz Shah is the director of the Human Rights Center of the Faculty of Law of Ziauddin University in Karachi, and as a young academician, he is also the chief advisor of the annual discussion of the Global Peace Talks that is being held in Islamabad. »

Muhammed Osman said that in this meeting, Saeed Maz Shah and others discussed human rights, the problems faced by Muslims, and hot issues in the international community. He said, “The Global Peace Summit calls for joining hands to protect the peace and harmony of the world by fighting oppression.” . However, none of them mentioned such a big global problem as the Uyghur genocide. When the participants of the meeting were given the opportunity to ask questions, he asked about the Uyghurs, and Saeed Maz Shah was forced to answer his questions in front of the participants.

He responded to Muhammad Usman’s question by asking: “What is the second largest nation in China after the Chinese?” asked. Muhammed Usman replied that they are Uighurs. But he said, “No, the majority of Muslims are Hui, or Tungus, and they have no problem.” He also warned Muhammad Osman that he should not believe what the foreign media said about the issue. He also said that the Americans created false stories in Afghanistan and elsewhere, which were reported in WikiLeaks.

Mohammad Osman said that Syed Maz Shah did not stop there, but in a strict tone, he asked to investigate the problem of oppression of Uyghurs from more sources, and to visit China to see what is happening there with his own eyes. He also mentioned some old mosques in mainland China.

He also talked about the political history of East Turkistan, and noted that there was a conflict between the Russians and the Chinese in the history of the region, and now he started talking loudly about the involvement of the United States in this conflict. He concluded by saying, “I have answered many things now, but these are not the topics of discussion in this rigorous meeting.”

Muhammad Osman expressed that not only he, but also many participants were not convinced by his words, saying: “His answers did not convince me. Other attendees and many students also came up to me during breaks between sessions to appreciate my efforts. They told me that the words of the speaker for the Chinese at the conference were disgusting and far from the truth. “I just hope people do more research on this topic and come to the right conclusions.”

In the news and videos of the Pakistani media about the meeting, Muhammad Osman’s questions about the Uyghurs and the answers given to him were cut. Mohammad Osman stressed that he was not surprised, saying: “I begged the person sitting next to me to videotape me while I was asking questions. He is a human rights activist from Kashmir, and he videotaped me on my mobile phone. But when he saw that I asked about the Uyghurs, although he said that he sympathized with the Uyghurs and admired my courage, he specifically reminded me that he was careful not to express his position on the issue.

Muhammad Osman shared this video on social media and exposed the disgusting situation that Pakistan’s science sector is also leaning towards China.

As the Uyghur Genocide became one of the most pressing global issues in the global media, the voices of Uyghur sympathizers began to rise. Prior to this, Afghan girl Feroze Aziz in the United States and Australian human rights activist Drew Pavlow listened to the voices of Uyghurs despite all kinds of restrictions and dangers.
