The Uyghurs, an ethnic group located in the northwest part of China, are at risk of having their ethnicity and culture destroyed. The Uyghurs consider themselves ethnically and culturally closer to Central Asia, rather than the Han Chinese. For the last few decades, the region of Xinjiang, where the vast majority of Uyghurs reside, militant Islamic groups have caused major trouble for the Chinese Government, mostly in the form of stabbings and bombings. In response, the Chinese Government has imprisoned, according to a United Nations estimate, over one million people in detention camps, or, as the Chinese Government has called them, “Re-Education Camps,” to assimilate Uyghurs into Han Chinese culture. In these camps, the people are forced to learn Mandarin Chinese, swear loyalty to Xi Jinping (the current President of China), and criticize their faith. These “Re-Education Camps” have warranted extensive international condemnation and have even been accused of being concentration camps.
