Inside the camps set up by the Chinese Government, hundreds of ethnic Uyghur Muslims spend their days in a high-pressure indoctrination program, where they are forced to listen to lectures, sing hymns praising the Chinese Communist Party, and to write “self-criticism” essays, according to detainees who have been released. They are also often subject to physical punishment and humiliation which amounts to torture.

This mass detention treats Uyghur and other Turkic cultures as ideological diseases. These are “cured” by forcefully teaching the Mandarin language, Communist Party dogma, Han Chinese traditions, and by coercing Uyghurs to pledge loyalty to Xi Jingping and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
