Biden claims China is jailing 'a billion Uighurs'
by Joseph Simonson
| October 03, 2019 09:05 PM

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed Thursday that the Chinese government is currently imprisoning 1 billion Uighurs, a small ethnic minority in the northwest portion of the country.

When speaking to wealthy donors at a Greek restaurant in Palo Alto, California, the former vice president addressed the ongoing tensions between the United States and China, and began listing a number of problems in the region.

"[China] has gigantic problems we don’t have,” he said, including a scarcity of water, cadmium pollution, and “a situation where they have a billion Uighurs in jail who are being treated very badly in the west; and in the east, they have a problem because they’re not sure what’s going on in Hong Kong or Shanghai.”

There are only an estimated 11 million Uighurs residing in China, and international organizations believe up to 1 million are currently detained by the government, a detention that has been repeatedly described as a human rights violation. The total population of China is estimated at 1.386 billion.

It was not immediately clear what Biden was referring to when he mentioned Shanghai.

“They have corruption that is real,” Biden added. “If we do our jobs ... they aren’t a patch on our jeans, man, not even close.”

I know this number will come, thousands, one million, three million now one billion...
To be very honest, how do you view China's treatment of these Muslims? Where's there's smoke there's fire. If the outcry is this huge, there has to be atleast something wrong. Just one question, do you think Uighers are being guaranteed basic human rights and not being mistreated or coerced in any way regarding their religion?

For American, even there is no fire, they can create fake smoke. Until now you still believe if there is real mistreatment of Uyghur by China? The title and mention by Biden already prove how absurd American accusation can be. Beware, they will next time accuse Pakistan abuse of Balochs after China fall due to many blind allies of China believe in hearsay. India is a bigger economy. I dont think it take a genius to know US will support India. Their propangada machine will goes in full swing to claim Pakistanis jailed a billion Baloch to deframe you.

Then other countries will come and say 'Where's there's smoke there's fire.' Which is exactly the verse you are using.

And what do you have to say about US killing thousands of Muslims and destroying countless Muslim countries?? Obviously in your view which you have formed based on a US Media outlet news, China's treatment of Muslims is much worse than US actually KILLING and butchering Muslims.

After 2009 Urumqi riot which resulted in hundreds of civilian deaths, the revenge sentiment was running really high and many Han Chinese were about to take the law into their own hands, the internet was running full of hate comments and Han people in Xinjiang complain they were ill treated in Xinjiang, saying every time when a Uighur and a Han get into an argument or conflict, the police always rules in favor of the Uighur, the whole region was on the brink of chaos where people were about at each other's throats.

The government sent in military police and separated conflicting groups, cut off the internet (for some months), after then, heavy police presence has been in Xinjiang till now to make sure no such communal violence happen again.

The whole event had nothing to do with religions or religious persecution, it's an ethnic conflict.

After the riot, a spate of terrorist attacks made by Uighur separatists hit many Chinese cities including Beijing's Tiananmen square, resulting in thousands of deaths, the whole Xinjiang region becomes very unstable and people worried about their families and their own lives, fear gripped this region.

The government started to adopt some policies trying to stablize Xinjiang, including promoting the idea of love between all ethnic groups in Xinjiang, patriotic and de radicalization education along with some other rules and measures.

Now let's check the result of those measures: Xinjiang hasn't have any terrorist attacks of any kind, big or small, for 3 years in a row already, casualties are from thousands down to zero. because of peace of stability, Xinjiang embarked a mindblowingly fast economic development, it enjoys double digit GDP growth, the highest in whole China, the tourism is booming, now one third of Xinjiang's GDP is from tourism. People's living standard had been greatly improved, the government now has enough money to take care of education, medicare, housing etc for the local population.

The infrastructure now in Xinjiang becomes one of the world's best, world class highways , high speed railways, airports, railway stations, subways, bridges .... are all over Xinjiang, now the development level in Xinjiang can put most of the developed countries to shame and stands out far at the top in the general central and south Asian region.

That's what China did in Xinjiang in the past several years, the western media tries to portray it a religious issue which it never is, they turned a blind eye to how China effectively pulled Xinjiang from the brink of total chaos and brought peace and great prosperity to this region and are hell bent to use Xinjiang to destablize China. We always know what the west wants, a fractured Xinjiang, a war zone scene like what the west created in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. They want war and mass deaths, but the can never succeed in making them happen in China's Xinjiang.

The western powers' desire is to make the locals fight each other and keep them forever in poverty. in this sense, they got their desired result 100%.

China want Pakistan, a Muslim country with the second largest population in the world to prosperous and safe, in the same time, United States are actually killing Muslim women and children all around the world, and sadly some of our Pakistani friend are blaming China's struggle to stabilize it's own country... Will an unstable China meet the interests of Pakistan? I don't think so.

While China's policy seems successfully make Xinjiang a peaceful region over the past 3 years, maybe our Pakistani friends can try China’s way to fight terrorism.

I don't know what's your mean of basic uyghur human rights.
I just know Uyghur live a much better life than most of the other Muslims including turkey and Pakistan,nice food ,nice apartment, nice cars,good education and so on.

Just another question, what business is it of yours if they aren't? Maybe China should raise human rights concerns about minorities in Pakistan, that'd be a great way to shut people like you up.

What else we can expect from the US quality of education. Not long time ago, some US vice president candidate said France was in Asia. And the US now has both Trump and Biden.

Nothing for Kashmiris? Millions of Kashmiris literally in lock down while surrounded by ganga rapists soldiers. I think the next figure will be 70 billions Uighur locked, surprisingly US which has invaded more Muslims countries then China is now concerned about Muslims? Don't fall into this trap again, I fear US wants to use the Jihad thing against China like they did against Soviet Union in Afghanistan.
