TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – According to recent reports out of China, Xinjiang-style internment camps, which are designed to wipe out local ethnic customs and religious beliefs among the local minority Uyghur population may soon be implemented in other regions of China.

Ningxia Province, home of the the Hui people, a minority Muslim population, may be preparing to replicate a Xinjiang inspired model for the internment and re-conditioning of Muslims in the region.

The Chinese state-backed propaganda blog, Global Times, on Nov. 30 published the following statement.

“Northwest China’s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region signed an anti-terror cooperation agreement with Xinjiang to learn from the latter’s experiences in promoting social stability.”
International observers and human rights organizations are now raising alarms that the crisis situation in Xinjiang may be expanded to include Muslim communities in Ningxia and possibly other regions, reports Supchina.

Details regarding the internment camps in Xinjiang, which Chinese officials repeatedly call “re-education” and “job training” centers, have become more clear over the past year, with human rights organizations, the United Nations, and foreign nations expressing serious concern over the practices of the Chinese Communist Party.
