Assalam Aleykum,

On behalf of the people of East Turkistan, we wish all the Muslims across the world a blessed Eid Al Adha.

We would like to remind everyone about East Turkistan which has been occupied by China since 1949. For over 70 years, the Uyghur, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Uzbek and other Turkic people of East Turkistan have been facing colonization and genocide.

Muslims all over the world are in a joyful mood on the occasion of Eid-al Adha, while the oppressed people of East Turkistan can’t be joyful because East Turkistan is occupied and Islam along with Eid has been effectively banned.

Over 3 million people in East Turkistan are currently being held in concentration camps. Mosques and other religious sites have been destroyed. Qurans, and other Islamic texts have been burned.

Over 500,000 East Turkistan children have been forcibly separated from their families and sent to state run orphanages to be raised as atheist Chinese citizens.

East Turkistan women are being sterilized, Muslims are being forced to eat pork and drink alcohol. The organs of East Turkistani Muslims are being harvested and sold to Muslims across the world as “halal organs.”

Earlier this month, we filed a formal complaint urging the International Criminal Court to investigate and prosecute Chinese officials for genocide and other crimes against humanity in Occupied East Turkistan.

What we expect from the Muslim world is solidarity and support be it politically, financially, diplomatically or any other means to help us seek justice and an end to China’s decades of occupation and genocide in East Turkistan.

We again call on the entire Muslim world to break their silence and do everything in their power to help liberate East Turkistan and its people from Chinese occupation and oppression.
