I don’t know how much this statement you signed has impact on China. However, this statement is one of the most important movements in our history to save the lives of more than 3 million innocents detainees in China’s concentration camps languishing in a horrific and horrifying situation. Their relatives outside of the camps and the Uyghurs in exile are deeply concerned about their well-being This letter has shown us some hope for our future and restored, to a great extent, our trust to humanity which has not completely vanished or been commercialized.
Honorable President Recep Tayyip Erdogan,
The recent news reports about your comments on the Uyghur situation after your official visit to China have deeply hurt us, the overseas Uyghur community around the world. That is not because of the false reports about our situation, but because these reports do not match your international image as a world leader and friend of the oppressed people all around the world. Ten years ago, you were the only foreign government leader who called the Chinese massacre on July 5 in Urumqi a genocide.
As all you know, Ramadan is the month for Muslims to pray for peace and equality, to show effort, self-test, and set example to others.
On behalf of more than 3 million Uyghur, Kazakh and Kyrgyz brothers and sisters who are languishing in the concentration camps in East Turkestan, and their family members who can’t even talk about their loved ones, I thank Indonesian people who demonstrated against the Chinese concentration camps on December 21st.
