Gulshan Abbas, Sister of Uyghur Activist in Exile, Confirmed Jailed After Missing for 27 Months

By Joshua Lipes

Gulshan Abbas, a Uyghur doctor from northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) who went missing after her Washington-based sister spoke out against Beijing’s policies in the region, has been sentenced to a lengthy prison term on charges of “terrorism,” family members said Wednesday.

Gulshan Abbas, a retiree who formerly worked at the Nurbagh Petroleum Hospital in the regional capital Urumqi, disappeared along with an aunt in September 2018.

Her disappearance came days after her sister Rushan Abbas, who formerly worked for RFA, took part in a panel on China at the Hudson Institute in Washington exposing conditions in the XUAR’s network of internment camps, where up to 1.8 million Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities are believed to have been held since April 2017.

On Wednesday, Rushan Abbas and her niece, Gulshan Abbas’ Virginia-based daughter Ziba Murat, announced that they had learned the retired doctor was secretly tried for associating with her sister’s rights group, Washington-based Campaign for Uyghurs (CFU), which Beijing has labeled a “terrorist organization.”

Gulshan was found guilty and sentenced to 20 years in prison, her relatives said, during a press conference jointly held by the bipartisan and bicameral Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) and CFU.

“We were recently notified by an informed source with access to sensitive information that my mother, Dr. Gulshan Abbas, was sentenced by the Chinese regime in March of 2019 to 20 years in prison on terrorism-related charges,” Mural said, noting that her family had inquired to Beijing about her mother’s fate for more than two years without any response.

“My mom is a medical professional, a nonpolitical kind of person who has spent her life helping people. The charges against her are preposterous, [as well as] the lack of any evidence or media coverage, the fact that the trial was closed and the highly unusual speed [of the hearing].”

Murat said her mother’s arrest, detention, trial and sentencing “prove the lies” of the Chinese government that it is a country that respects the rule of law and human rights.

“It is unacceptable that the regime which promotes itself as a legitimate government to the international community will jail loyal citizens without cause, without [providing] news [about their situation for] more than two years,” she said.

“My mother’s treatment at the hands of the Chinese government is further evidence of the Chinese regime’s determination to eliminate Uyghur professionals and intellectuals, striking another blow at the survival of the Uyghur culture.”

Murat demanded that Chinese authorities release her mother unconditionally and allow her to leave China to join her family in the U.S. to seek medical attention for health conditions that include high blood pressure, issues with her sight, and severe osteoporosis and back pain.

“We hereby make clear to the Chinese authorities that we will not stop, we will not be silenced and will continue to bring to light their crimes against our family,” she said.

Murat also called on the U.S. government, the United Nations, and like-minded governments to further the cause of the Uyghur people and “ensure that justice prevails.”

“It’s clear that our mother has been punished for her family members’ advocacy in the United States on behalf of the human rights of all people,” she said.

“The cruel treatment of my fragile mother is a direct retaliatory action and nothing more. Her case must be raised by the U.S. government as essential to any dialogue with the Chinese government.” 

‘Failing as citizens of the world’

Rushan Abbas said that Beijing is taking the family members of U.S. citizens “hostage to punish them for actions performed in the United States as lawful citizens.”

“The thought of my peaceful, kind and fragile sister spending 20 years in a Chinese dungeon because of my activism … is impossible to bear,” she said.

“We have committed to working to defend people’s rights and advocate for justice. And now my sister is denied justice as a punishment.”

She called on the international community to do more to hold China accountable for its abuses in the XUAR, where Uyghurs regularly face state-sponsored discrimination and are restricted from practicing their religion, using their own language, and preserving their culture.

Other reports suggest that Uyghurs are being transferred from internment camps to forced labor situations to avoid international scrutiny of the extralegal penal system the Chinese government refers to as voluntary “vocational centers,” and that Uyghur women are regularly subjected to “family planning” policies that include forced abortions and sterilization.

“We are failing as citizens of the world and as citizens of humanity,” she said.

“[To] the Chinese regime, I say again what I have said for over two years now, ‘free my sister.’ Your stupidity and lack of morals has caused the word ‘China’ to be associated only with crimes against humanity. You will fail in your quest for domination.”

In the 27 months since her disappearance, the U.S.-based family members of Gulshan Abbas—who include two other siblings and two daughters—have worked relentlessly to determine her whereabouts and why she may have been targeted by authorities.

Calls to friends, relatives, and local authorities in the XUAR have yielded little information, as have several letters to the Chinese Embassy in Washington.

In June, RFA’s Uyghur Service spoke with a Han Chinese employee of the Nurbagh Petroleum Hospital’s ruling Communist Party Cadres Office who confirmed that Gulshan Abbas had been detained, although she was unsure of why or where the retired doctor had been taken.

Forced labor legislation

The revelation comes as Washington grapples with its response to China’s policies of mass incarceration, forced labor and other forms of repression in the XUAR.

President Donald Trump’s administration in July leveled sanctions against several top Chinese officials deemed responsible for rights violations in the region, including regional party secretary Chen Quanguo, under the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act.

The move, which marked the first time Washington had sanctioned a member of China’s powerful Politburo, followed Trump’s enactment in June of the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020 (UHRPA), which passed nearly unanimously through both houses of Congress at the end of May.

The legislation highlights arbitrary incarceration, forced labor, and other abuses in the XUAR and provides for sanctions against the Chinese officials who enforce them.

Congress may soon reintroduce legislation which would prohibit imports from the XUAR to the U.S. amid the growing evidence that internment camps in the region have increasingly transitioned from political indoctrination to forced labor, with detainees being sent to work in cotton and textile factories.

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, which was introduced in March and passed by the House of Representatives but was never brought to the floor by the Senate, would block imports from the region unless proof can be shown that they are not linked to forced labor.

Several multinational corporations who use materials from the XUAR in their supply chains have lobbied against the legislation, saying that while they condemn forced labor in the region, it could disrupt their businesses.

In March, the CECC named several companies suspected of having ties to forced labor in the XUAR, including Adidas, Nike, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, H&M, Patagonia, and Costco.

Speaking during Wednesday’s press conference, Representative Chris Smith, an outspoken lawmaker on the Uyghur issue, said he has “no doubt that [the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act] will pass again in the House” and noted that Senator Marco Rubio, co-chair of the CECC, “is pushing hard for it” in the Senate.

CECC co-chair and architect of the URHRPA Representative James McGovern said he plans to reintroduce the forced labor legislation to the House and push for a vote “at the earliest possible time” in the next Congressional session.

“We will be able to move this quickly in the house,” he said.

“I also believe that if a Senate leadership allows there to be a vote, this will pass in the Senate. And I think it is right to point out that there are some business interests that are trying to weaken or undermine it, but they will not succeed.”

Asked about Washington’s criticism of China’s XUAR policies, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters on Monday that “U.S. diplomatic authorities, led by several anti-China politicians, have been neglecting truth, making fabrications, and time and again spreading disinformation about Xinjiang. China firmly opposes and strongly condemns this.”

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 the duplicate one might be 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

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.

Don't rely on viral social media messages such as Coronavirus Infected Indian Currencies of Rs.500 and Rs.2,000 Notes Found, Muslim Man Spit in Food At Indian Restaurant.....Always Check Authentic Sources.

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.

Beware of Fake News or Fake Photos/Videos Relating to Communal Hatred

Always check the fact checking sites if you have some doubts about the authenticity of any information or picture.

The Same Method Applies to You Tube Videos Check the Source the credibility of the Source.To Check Fake You Tube Videos Check and Recheck the sources. Does the person have the legal right to the video posted? Did that person capture the video? Whether it has been altered?

But due to advancement of technology we can not really wipe out fake news.According to experts advent of  Artificial Intelligence(AI) some companies small or big one developing  technologies that can  lay digitally created script to anybody's voice  even words,sentences never said by the person.Even they developing a technology which can create fake video footage,images,audios like originals.So be cautious!
