The Chinese officials claimed that in Xinjiang state, China is not maltreating with the Muslims, they are only trying to prevent any kind of raising of political and religious fanaticism.
Reports of mass confinement of ethnic Uighurs and others ethnic Muslims in the Western region of China inflamed a raising international scream which triggered the Trump Administration to approve consents against the firms and officials associated to the accusation of the breaching of human rights.
Li Xiaojun, the director of the publicity at the Bureau of Human Rights Affairs of the State Council Information Office, told “ It is not maltreatment”, What China is doing is to establish professional training centres and educational centres.
Li also told the reporters at the U.N. Human Rights Council session of Geneva, “ If you do not say it is the best way, maybe it’s the necessary way to deal with Islamic or religious extremism, because the West has failed in doing so, in dealing with religious Islamic extremism. Look at Belgium, look at Paris, look at some other European countries. You have failed.”
He added, “ As to surveillance, China is learning from the UK. Your per capita CCTV is much higher than that for China’s Xinjiang Autonomous Region. ”
He said, “ the Xinjiang education centers were not detention centres or re-education camps“, which he disregarded as the “ the trademark product of Eastern European Countries”, a visible reference to Gulag confinement in Soviet, during the Cold War.
According to him, “ To put it straight, it’s like vocational training….like your children go to vocational-training schools to get better skills and better jobs after graduation. But this kind of training and education centres only accept people for a short period of time – some people five days, some seven days, 10 days, one month, two months.”
