US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has criticized China for reducing the religious freedom of Uighurs.
In an interview with Rob Schmitt of Wake Up America, Pompeo praised China for treating a million Uighur Muslims in absolutely devastating ways and equating it with the ethnic cleansing of Jews in Nazi Germany in the 1930s. .
“China, which is extremely bad, is treating a million Uighur Muslims in absolutely devastating ways, things we have not seen in Germany since the 1930s,” Pompeo said.
Various testimonies from the non-Chinese world reveal that Beijing intensified its operations against the Uighurs, putting several people in internment camps during the pandemic.
In fact, Uighur Muslims in Chinese “re-education” camps are forced to eat pork every Friday, said Sayragul Sautbay, who was one of the victims of the Chinese government’s atrocities.
In response to a question from Schmitt about the effects of coronavirus on churches, synagogues, places of worship that have been closed or closed, and how repressive regimes such as China use the situation to their advantage in suppressing Uighurs, Pompey argued for religious freedom. as one of the fundamental rights.
“I am incredibly proud of the work I have done for religious freedom. It is this fundamental right, this human right that – from which all others derive. If you get religious freedom rights and tolerance for people of faith, so many good things are happening in your country. So I worked on it – so I worked hard on religious freedom, ”Pompeo remarked.
He also destroyed the fact that leaders around the world are opening bars and casinos, but places of worship were not yet allowed to open.
“It is very discouraging to see leaders using a coronavirus excuse to allow bars and casinos to be open, but not to allow places of worship for people to gather around their faith,” he said.
