China forces birth control on Uyghur Muslims and ask them to eat pork

Chinese authorities have forced Uyghur Muslims to eat pork dumplings during a festival in a purported attempt to eradicate the minority group’s culture.

Beijing’s officials served the forbidden food items to residents in Xinjiang, and those who refused to consume them would be sent into re-education camps, Germany based World Uyghur Congress said. Notably, pork is forbidden in Islam and it is not eaten by most Muslims.

The news comes as the Chinese government is accused of carrying out ‘demographic genocide’ against the Uyghur Muslim population by allegedly forcing birth control onto local women. 

While individual women have spoken out before about forced birth control, the practice is far more widespread and systematic than previously known, according to an Associated Press investigation based on government statistics, state documents and interviews with ex-detainees and family members.

The state regularly subjects minority women to pregnancy checks, and forces intrauterine devices, sterilisation and even abortion on hundreds of thousands. Even while the use of IUDs and sterilisation has fallen nationwide, it is rising sharply in Xinjiang.

The population control measures are backed by mass detention both as a threat and as a punishment for failure to comply. Having too many children is a major reason people are sent to detention camps, the AP found, with the parents of three or more ripped away from their families unless they can pay huge fines. Police raid homes, terrifying parents as they search for hidden children.

The millions of dollars the government pours into birth control has transformed Xinjiang from one of China’s fastest-growing regions to among its slowest in just a few years, according to new research obtained by The Associated Press in advance of publication by China scholar Adrian Zenz.

“This kind of drop is unprecedented… there’s a ruthlessness to it,” said Zenz, a leading expert in the policing of China’s minority regions. “This is part of a wider control campaign to subjugate the Uyghurs.”

  1. Indian Muslims should realize that India is next to heaven जन्नत for them. They are living happily here with upper hand. They can indulge in loudspeaker noise pollution for Namaz irrespective of whether people around like it or not. Muslim ladies can be made scapegoats by Muslim men to sit for road block for months and go unhurt. Look at Uighur and Syrian refugees and women being raped by Muslims themselves. Indian Muslims have get over psychological disease of KAFIROPHOBIA. Soon the better. Dr. Pramod Pathak

  2. It gives me immense pleasure to state that most of the news reviews are seen in Muslim Mirror.before others.as far and this piece of information is concerned it’s quite disgusting.some one should raise up the voice against this atrocity on humanitarian grounds.

    Sir, Indian Muslims are always considered India as their own mother land rejecting two-nation theory of Savarkar and Jinah. If you go by the history from the days of ‘Khilafat’ which father of the nation Mahatam Gandhi joined took the lead to free this land from British Raj there are many ‘Moulvi’s’ sacrificed and buried with this land.

    Unfortunately, the India you support is not the nation our ancestors laid down. There was time these ‘Azan’ use wake Hindus. Today there is ‘Gayathri Mantra’ replaced it with same decibels. As far as role of Muslim women pre and post Independence you need to revisit the history. Today only the silent protest has shaken the government. If start speaking they can even be ‘Maa Kali’ to shake earth to tumble.
    The rape in Islam is capital punishment of death. But India you aspire Hindutrava icon like Gadhar Savarkar’ who is the proponent of rape has written book to avenge against minority women is considered as nationalist hero.
    We the Muslims of this nation is always respected this land with love and stood against all aggression. Read the right history for your knowledge.

    Hope you don’t discriminate your patients against ethics of medicine.

    Jai Hind!
