Inside China’s Horrific Detention Camps

A woman who claims to have been forced to teach Mandarin to classes of “loudly crying” men and women inside China’s Uighur detention camps has shared what goes on behind closed doors.

Qelbinur Sidik, a teacher, claims she was summoned to a meeting at the Saybagh District Bureau of Education in 2016 and told she would soon be working with “illiterates”. By 2017, she was regularly teaching Madarin to classes of “shackled” students inside two government-run camps.

Ms. Sidik, an Uzbek, grew up in Xinjiang and spent 28 years teaching school children ages 6 to 13.

In an interview with CNN, Ms. Sidik said detainees arrived at the centers “fit, robust and bright-eyed.” But they quickly became sick and weak. She remembers regularly hearing screams from above her basement-level classroom. When she asked about them, a male policeman confirmed them to be the cries of tortured detainees.

Ms. Sidik also claims that inside one of the camps she worked at, a female police officer told her she was investigating reports of guards raping inmates. That same policewoman, according to Ms. Sidik, said her male colleagues would get drunk and “tell each other how they raped and tortured girls.”

China insists that no such abuse takes place in these so-called “vocational centres.” However, Ms. Sidik’s claims are very similar to those of survivors who have spoken out about their experiences.

Tursunay Ziyawudun, speaking in the same CNN report, said she had not committed any crime when she was seized in March 2018 and placed in a center just outside the city of Ghulja, Xinjiang. She remained there for nine months.

Providing details of “multiple gang rapes” that took place, she said, “I heard a girl crying and screaming in another room. I saw about five or six men going into the room and I thought they were torturing her. But then I was gang raped. After that I realized what they also did to her.”

Ms. Ziyawudun spoke to the broadcaster from inside the US, after she was rushed there for medical treatment in 2020. She returned to Kazahkstan in September 2019 under strict orders, by the Chinese authorities, not to talk about her time at the camp, she said.

Doctors removed her uterus, with medical records seen by CNN showing she was diagnosed with a pelvic abscess and vaginal bleeding, as well as tuberculosis. Ms. Ziyawudun said she blamed her treatment in the camp for her surgeries.

The Chinese government has continuously rejected allegations of genocide against Uighurs. In a statement to CNN it said “there is no so-called ‘systematic sexual assault and abuse against women’ in Xinjiang”.

    We find it horrendous of the “torture and gang raping” of these people. And for the Biden regime to overlook it. Our country should be enacting some serious actions to discourage such atrocities. ( not buttering up to the CCP) WE SHOULD BE SETTING A BETTER EXAMPLE. THE WORLD IS WATCHING.

    I hope the teacher named in this report has fled China, changed her name and altered her appearance because she has a big target on her back, along with any family
    members still in China. They should certainly qualify for asylum. I ask everyone reading this story to pray for this brave woman and her loved ones.
    ones.
