Center for Uyghur Studies releases new book on Uyghur genocide

The Center for Uyghur Studies (CUF) has announced the release of the book “Menace: China’s Colonization of the Islamic World & Uyghur Genocide” from an Uyghur perspective on the neo-colonialism that the Chinese regime is bringing to the world, and the Uyghur genocide.

The book was published by the newly established Center for Uyghur Studies, the release marks what CFU hopes will be the beginning of a widespread push to include the voices of Uyghur scholars on the crisis facing their own people.

The book is written by Mr. Abdulhakim Idris, Inspector General of the World Uyghur Congress and an Islamic scholar.

In his book, Idris focuses on the dangers for the Islamic world comes at a key point in time to raise awareness with Muslim-majority countries who have thus far remained largely silent on the genocide facing their Muslim brothers and sisters, at the expense of their own sovereignty and security.

The Chinese government has reportedly arbitrarily detained more than a million Muslims in reeducation camps since 2017.

Most of the people who have been detained are Uyghur, a predominantly Turkic-speaking ethnic group primarily in China’s northwestern region of Xinjiang.

The United States and several other foreign governments have described China’s actions in Xinjiang as genocide, while the UN human rights office said that the violations could constitute crimes against humanity.
