For decades, the Chinese government has relocated millions of Han Chinese into the state of Xinjiang, home to the Muslim Uighur population in a attempt to passive and change the Muslim population in the outermost west of the country.
A detailed report from the BBC talks about China's building of massive internment camps for its Uighur population. Offences warranting imprisonment range from having a picture of a relative wearing a veil on your smartphone to having a relative living abroad.
The report believes there are least a few hundred thousand in these massive camps and possibly over a million and the camps are being extended to accommodate more people.
The Chinese call these camps re-education centres and originally people kept in these camps only stayed there a few weeks or months, but now it seems nobody is released from them. The report believes that these camps are systemic policy by the Chinese government to destroy the Uighur identity and break up families, in effect destroying the Uighur in all but name.
Will the Chinese government go one step further and destroy its Muslim population, especially considering the West's weak response to the Burma massacre?
