The Chinese communist regime has dismayed the world with its hysteria. According to New York Times, the Xi Jin Ping government captured thousands of Uighurs Muslims into high-pressure indoctrination programs. The movement is especially vigorous in the regions right outside of Hotan, an ancient oasis town in the Taklamakan Desert. However, over the past two years the movement spread over the entire Western region of Xinjiang, a deserted area the size of Alaska, in which the indoctrination programs tortured Muslims physically and mentally. Its goal is to “re-educate” the Uighurs Muslims who have consistently resisted against the Chinese government through independence movements.
The irrational and unorthodox treatment of independent religious minorities parallels the Holocaust. During World War 2, six million Jews were mass murdered along with other minorities such as the Gypsies and homosexuals. The German Nazi regime’s radical leader Adolf Hitler considered Jews as an inferior race, and a threat to German racial purity and peace. The Nazi regime's death marches and concentration camps have come to symbolize crucial treatments against a specific group of people.
Learning from history, “transformation” can not be achieved through radical solutions and the captivation of the minorities. Governments should assure basic human rights to all citizens of the country and respect all individuals. As a ruler of a country who is responsible for all citizens, Xi Jin Ping should guarantee fair treatment of all. In the end, peace will be achieved by unanimous cooperation.
