Dear Mr. Borrell,
Today, US House of Representatives passed Uyghur Human Rights Bill, which can be a great Eid gift for us. Although this bill cannot directly address the tragic situation in our homeland, East Turkestan (the so-called Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region), this is the official start of the world’s most powerful country’s concern for a helpless nation facing cruel abuse and a clear signal that it can no longer stand idly by.
In today’s world, there are many news written about who is aware of the dangers of the Wuhan virus, who is early, who is late, who is hiding it, and who is the first to reveal it. However, there is a politician who publicly warned the U.S. government and world about this catastrophe from China six years ago, and that is Mr. Dana Rohrabacher, a former member of Congress from the Republican Party. As a member of the Uyghur nation whom have been heavily impacted and harmed by the Wuhan virus and is at greater risk of being harmed, today I feel that expressing my gratitude to Mr.
