China Paying Women To Marry This Category Of Men

 In an effort to exterminate Uyghurs, China pays its citizens to wed Muslims, according to a report by Danielle Ong.


The "National Unity, One Family" campaign in China includes the arranged marriages. Uyghur women who reject the arranged marriage risk being interned.

China has previously been charged for imprisoning and abusing Uyghurs in detention facilities.

In an effort to completely eradicate the Uyghur minority living in the country's northwest, the Chinese government is allegedly bribing its residents to wed Muslims.

According to reports, local officials in the Xinjiang area have been pressuring and paying Chinese citizens to marry Uyghur women in arranged unions as part of the "National Unity, One Family" campaign. According to a report from the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Uyghur Human Rights Project (UHRP), which cited official policy documents, social media posts, and interviews with Uyghurs, some of the benefits being provided to the interethnic couples include housing and education subsidies, jobs, and medical care.

Two mixed Uyghur-Han couples, for instance, received 40,000 yuan ($5,588) to wed in the Kalasa village in Aksu Prefecture. According to the article, regional authorities have threatened to detain Uyghur women who reject an arranged marriage.

In many "new-era" Uyghur-Han interethnic marriages, the UHRP investigation concluded, "some form of compulsion, however indirect, is likely present." "An Uyghur woman just cannot refuse a Han man who professes interest in marriage to her."

More than a million Uyghurs are allegedly being held by China in internment facilities known as "re-education camps" where prisoners are allegedly subjected to harsh interrogation techniques and even torture. Stepping on detainees' faces, hanging Uyghurs from the ceiling, waterboarding, sexual assault, and electrocution are some of the purported torture techniques employed by the officers at the camps.

A 45-page report detailing charges of human rights violations against the Uyghur, Kazakh, and Kyrgyz ethnic groups in the region of Xinjiang was presented in September by Michelle Bachelet, the head of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

Twenty-six of the forty people who were interviewed had either been imprisoned or worked in Xinjiang-based facilities. Some of the testimonies said that while they were being held, they were waterboarded, hit with batons, denied sleep, and denied food. Others claimed they were compelled to perform nationalistic songs rather than being permitted to speak their own language.

China responded to the study with a 131-page paper in which it asserted that the OHCHR probe "distorts" China's legal system and political objectives. CNN quoted China as saying that ethnic groups in Xinjiang "are living a pleasant life and peace and contentment."
