China urges care on exile's visit to Australia
China urges care on exile's visit to Australia - Yahoo!7 I used to blog a lot on China and the Uygur people from Xinjiang in north western China. The Uygur are a Turkic, mainly Muslim, people numbering probably 15 million people. As with the Dalai Lama, Uygur international personalities like Ms Kadeer are hounded by the Chinese government despite the fact, that, as in this instance, both are openly not for a split with China just a recognition of human rights for their minority peoples. To all my Uygur friends Xierinay and Ali in particular "Rhamat".
