74% of Bangladeshis think that Chinese government is repressive towards Uyghurs: survey
As many as 74 percent of Bangladeshi citizens think that the Chinese government is repressive towards Uyghur Muslims while 24 per cent think that they are being persecuted just because of their religious identity, according to a survey.
This survey was released by the Center for Genocide Studies of Dhaka University this month. The opinions of 5,200 Bangladeshi people were taken in a survey titled ‘National Image of China’ in Bangladesh.
People from 32 districts, 8 divisional cities and 12 metropolitan cities of Bangladesh participated in the survey. Among them, 66 per cent were men and 34 per cent were women.
China’s Xinjiang province is home to 1.2 million Uyghur Muslims.
International human rights organizations have been complaining that various types of oppression are being carried out on these Muslims.
Even several human rights organizations have flagged serious human rights violations in Xinjiang.
However, China has continued to deny such allegations.
