Former Xinjiang Internment Camp Detainee Honored With ‘Hero of the Year’ Award

Gulbahar Jelilova was recognized for her work drawing attention to mass incarceration in the region.

U.S.-based Justice for All has honored Uyghur former internment camp detainee Gulbahar Jelilova as one of four “Heroes of the Year” for her work drawing international attention to policies of mass incarceration in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR).

In a statement posted to its website on April 3, the Muslim advocacy group lauded Jelilova, a Kazakh national and businesswoman, as “Uyghur Advocate of the Year 2021” for detailing to the media the abuses she and others experienced in the XUAR’s vast network of internment camps.

Authorities in the region are believed to have held up to 1.8 million Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities in the camp system since early 2017. While Beijing initially denied the existence of the camps, China in 2019 changed tack and began describing the facilities as “boarding schools” that provide vocational training for Uyghurs, discourage radicalization, and help protect the country from terrorism.

But reporting by RFA’s Uyghur Service and other media outlets indicate that those in the camps are detained against their will and subjected to political indoctrination, routinely face rough treatment at the hands of their overseers and endure poor diets and unhygienic conditions in the often-overcrowded facilities.

In a recent interview with RFA, Jelilova expressed her appreciation to Justice for All for honoring her with the third award she has received for her work and denounced Beijing’s rule in the XUAR, where the U.S. government and the parliaments of other Western nations say China’s repressive policies amount to genocide against the Uyghur people.

“My crime, my only crime, is that I am Uyghur, I am a Muslim,” Jelilova said.

“They said I was a terrorist, that I aided terrorists, and they gave me the death penalty, and locked me up underground and in dark cells. I stayed there for one year, three months, and 10 days before getting out,” she said.

“With Allah’s strength, with Allah’s mercy, on behalf of my cellmates in the camps, I have been telling my story to the entire world.”

Revealing life inside the camps

Jelilova was detained on accusations of “aiding terrorism” while on a business trip to the XUAR capital Urumqi and put into three different camps over a period of 15 months beginning in May 2017. She finally returned to Kazakhstan in September 2018, as a direct result of tireless advocacy by her two children in Kazakhstan, who sought diplomatic assistance from the Kazakh government.

Jelilova’s testimony has since revealed the nature of atrocities inside the camps, including torture and the deaths of innocent people. She told RFA in 2019 that Muslim detainees were regularly served pork in the camps, although guards never told them it was in the food, and that in several cases, detainees who separated the pork out of their meals were placed in solitary confinement as punishment.

While Jelilova initially spent a period of time in Kazakhstan after leaving China, she eventually fled her home country for Turkey because she felt that Beijing’s influence over Nur-Sultan made it unsafe for her to speak out about abuses in the XUAR. After spending a period in Turkey, she moved to France in October 2020 and is now seeking asylum.

In February, she and several other women who have given testimony about their experiences as former detainees in the XUAR’s camp system were the target of a smear campaign by Chinese state media as part of a bid to undermine their credibility.

Jelilova was among four people recognized by Justice for All as Heroes of the Year. Her fellow recipients include James McGovern, a U.S. Representative for Massachusetts who has long advocated for the human rights of Uyghurs; former U.S. Ambassador for Religious Freedom Sam Brownback, for his support of the Muslim Rohingyas in Myanmar; and Ather Zia, a Kashmiri anthropologist and professor, for her June 2019 book titled “Resisting Disappearances: Military Occupation and Women’s Activism in Kashmir.”

Condemning Uyghur genocide

Amid rising international attention to the plight of the Uyghurs by U.S. lawmakers, House Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican Michael McCaul and Chairman Gregory W. Meeks introduced a resolution Wednesday condemning “the genocide being committed by the People’s Republic of China (PRC), under the direction and control of the Chinese Communist Party, against the Uyghurs and other ethnic and religious minority groups.”

The resolution calls on U.S. President Biden to refer the abuses to the United Nations for investigation under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, seek multilateral sanctions against the PRC at the U.N. Security Council, and “take all possible actions to bring the genocide to an end.”

How You Identify Fake News or Messages on Social Media 

Beware of Fake News and Fake Messages on Social Media

Always follow websites or social media platforms of traditional media outlets whether newspapers, magazines,Television News Channels or Radio Stations and authentic online only media outlets.They still maintain journalism excellence and stress on reportorial talent.On the other hand, fake news websites run by people with non journalism background and promote their own ideology with fake news and disinformations and obviously conspiracy theories.

But unfortunately mainstream media also manipulates news to establish their story angle.There were various instances when News papers and TV Channels promoted fake news/conspiracy theories in the form of out of context or manipulated pictures/videos and distorted informations.

Always check the URL of any website.Some fake news websites look like the orginal and popular one the same layout,Logo but if you check the URL you may find extra words like if the orginal website's URL is www.xxx.com the duplicate one might be www.xxx.com.co or something like that so first check the URL for authentic informations.

Check whether photos are original or photoshopped.Check Google images for authenticity.You can find help from Google Reverse Images search.

Check the news sources from other websites whether they picked up the story or not.

Whether the website layout is little bit clumsy and obviously grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes and excessive use of Sex related and sensational and hate stories.Because sex and hate sells.

Follow official websites relating to COVID-19

WHO Clarifies the disinformation about the virus:
COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
Cold Weather and Snow can not kill the new coronavirus
Taking a Hot Bath Does Not Prevent COVID-19
COVID-19 Can not be transmitted through mosquito bites

Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth)

According to World Health Organization (WHO): Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth . If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.

Follow WHO guidelines

www.who.int

When you follow COVID-19 related news and messages from social media then check and recheck it before consuming it.Follow journalism mantra: if your mother says she loves you, check it out.

Most of the messages or informations quote different organizations like WHO, UNICEF, UNDP,Cambridge University  or other well known institutes,organizations or individual to authenticate the messeges.Check official websites of these organizations  if stories are repeated there

Forwarding messages from unknown sources or little known sources, it would be better to ignore it.

Check whether any logo like UNICEF or WHO or other organizations used in the messages which look similar to original logo.

These type of messages are full of Grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes which are quite uncommon in original messages.

Some fake messages pretend to be real one like unofficial Twitter handle of international media organizations like BBC,CNN,Washinton Post, New York Times-check the official Twitter handles of media outlets.

You can identify fake messages if the message requests you to share it.
