China is 'not being honest' claims Tom Tugendhat

The Tory MP for Tonbridge, Edenbrige and Malling responded to a post from China’s embassy in the US which hailed Xinjiang as a place were women were “emancipated”. China’s embassy said after “eradicating extremism” in the region, Uighur women were “more confident and independent”.

Mr Tugendhat, also chair of the China Research Group, lashed out at the embassy’s post.

He said: “Claiming that ethnic cleansing is a form of gender equality is horrific.”

The Chinese embassy posted a China Daily article which said the eradication of extremism has given Uighur women “more autonomy”.

It cites a decrease in the birthrate and natural population growth of Uighur’s in 2018 as responsible for the “eradication of religious extremism”.

Chinese authorities in the Xinjiang autonomous region have reportedly forced much of the Uighur Muslim population into re-education camps.

Sayragul Sautbay, a medical doctor now living in Sweden, published a book last year detailing the “humiliation and violence” she suffered while detained in a re-education camp.

Ms Sautbay witnessed forced sterilisations, beatings and alleged Chinese guards sexually abused the population.

Speaking to Al Jazeera, she added: “Every Friday, we were forced to eat pork meat. They have intentionally chosen a day that is holy for the Muslims.

“And if you reject it, you would get a harsh punishment.”
