Indonesian students rally against China over Uyghurs



JAKARTA, Indonesia
Indonesian students on Thursday held a rally in front of the Chinese embassy in Jakarta, demanding Beijing stops violence and human rights abuses against Uyghur Muslims.
The Islamic Student Alliance (AMI) also urged the Indonesian government to boycott Chinese products.
"We call for an end to all forms of human rights violations, including torture and massacre of ethnic Uyghurs," Rimbo Bugis, a coordinator of the rally, told Anadolu Agency.
The protesters also urged for the cases of human rights violations in Xinjiang to be brought to the International Court of Justice.
"We will also invite people from other religions and other groups [to protest] because, for us, it is not just a matter of slaughtering the Muslims but a massacre of humanity," said Bugis.
The protestors also carried out theatrical performances, portraying discriminatory actions against Uyghurs by the Chinese forces.
In January, the US said China has committed "crimes against humanity and possibly genocide" against the Uyghurs and other Muslim minority communities in the western Xinjiang province.
Earlier this week, foreign ministers of Canada and the UK and the US secretary of state released a joint statement, expressing concern over the Chinese government's "human rights violations and abuses" in the region.
Noting that they "have taken a coordinated action on measures, in parallel to measures by the EU," the three top diplomats said they want to clarify what they think about the "human rights violations and abuses."
The Xinjiang region is home to around 10 million Uyghurs. The Turkic Muslim group, which makes up around 45% of Xinjiang's population, has long accused the Chinese authorities of cultural, religious and economic discrimination.
According to the US officials and the UN experts, up to 1 million people, or about 7% of the Muslim population in Xinjiang, have been incarcerated in an expanding network of "political re-education" camps.
A 2018 Human Rights Watch report detailed a Chinese government campaign of "mass arbitrary detention, torture, forced political indoctrination, and mass surveillance of Xinjiang's Muslims."
China, however, has repeatedly denied allegations that it is operating detention camps in its northwestern autonomous region, claiming instead that they are "re-educating" Uyghurs.

Indonesians murdered and raped many Chinese in Indonesia.

Hundreds of thousands of ethnic Chinese were murdered by Indonesians in the 1960s.

Thousands of Chinese women and girls were raped and killed by Indonesians in 1998.

So we can expect hate from these people.

Indonesians murdered and raped many Chinese in Indonesia.

The events of '65 and '98 were truly unfortunate events in our history, however to claim that Indonesians killed hundreds of thousands of ethnic are simply untrue...

Hundreds of thousands of ethnic Chinese were murdered by Indonesians in the 1960s.
- False.. some 500,000 - 1,000,000 (or even 2,000,000 depending what source to believe) civilians were killed during the attempted communist coup and the purge by the military following the failed coup... however 90% of those victims were poor native Indonesians (mostly Javanese) that were only loosely related to the Indonesian communist party... A lot were simply neighbors or rival groups settling old scores between themselves... Indonesian of Chinese descent only made up a very small percentage of the victims of the communist purge... however following the purge, Chinese culture and language was heavily suppressed by the new government and the Chinese Indonesians were then ordered to change their names to Indonesian sounding names to better assimilate and avoid potential prosecutions...

Thousands of Chinese women and girls were raped and killed by Indonesians in 1998.
- False.. there were thousands victims during the 1998 riots (est 2000 - 3000 killed), there were also reports of rapes.. however 99% of those victims are again native Indonesians, mostly the poor people and children of the city slums, many were killed trapped in burning markets, malls, shops when they were looting... some were shot by security forces during clashes.. It's true however that many of those looted business / shops were owned or operated by Chinese Indonesians, simply because most them were traders, a skill which they excel very well... '98 were the time of the Asian Financial Crisis, and a lot of people became poor at the time..

The western media at the time (especially Australian) made such a big fuss of the presumed Chinese Indonesian victims of the riots (while mostly neglecting the native Indonesians victims) I assume due to them being relatable.. Christian, western educated, middle to upper class, and perhaps even due to the lighter skin color compared to the poor, brown-skinned natives... and so only the Chinese Indonesians gets the spotlight as victims of the riots when the huge majority of the victims are actually local native Indonesians...


So we can expect hate from these people - more like jealousy and envy (due to wealth) rather than hate...

I'm disappointed, no one is calling us malays. :D
In our opinion, you are Malays. I have read Naipaul’s book. Among believers, a large number of Indonesians immigrated to Malaysia illegally due to economic factors. They quickly regarded Chinese Malaysians as a foreign race, illegal immigrants. In fact, Malaysians of Chinese descent came to Malaysia hundreds of years ago. These Indonesian talents are foreign races. However, the Chinese in Malaysia are from Fujian and Guangdong, two economic provinces with no political talents in history. If they are The Hubei and Hunanese who like to fight the most immigrated to Malaysia. Now Malaysia speaks Chinese fully and becomes Singapore.
Japan and Indonesia have always been on our Chinese retaliatory list. I hope there is a historical opportunity and we can severely punish Indonesia.

Nope, lies. 1960 is anti communist purge and 99 % victims are native and Chinese being killed more due to linked to Indonesian Communist Parties

1998 event is anti Soeharto riots that happened after Trisakti students being shot during pro democracy movement and almost all victims are natives who get trapped in market building where rioters burn the building where many people are there.

Military killed 4 university students and the next day Jakarta is on fire

In Indonesia, 1998 violence against ethnic Chinese remains unaddressed
By JOHN M. GLIONNA, LOS ANGELES TIMES
JULY 4, 2010 12 AM PT
Reporting from Jakarta, Indonesia —
Ruminah winces as she recalls the afternoon a mob ransacked her tiny hair salon, smashing windows and destroying both the business and her faith in justice in her homeland.
More than a decade later, the reason she was attacked still haunts her: She is part Chinese.
In May 1998, during two deadly days of racially fueled mayhem, rioters killed 1,000 people and raped 87 women, most of Chinese descent. Others cowered in their homes as the rape squads, reportedly led by army thugs, roamed the streets of Jakarta, the Indonesian capital.
The petite Ruminah, who, like many here, goes by one name, lost more than her shop that day. Her developmentally disabled son was killed in a fire set by looters at a nearby mall.

ADVERTISING

“I’m not a smart person,” said Ruminah, 54, an Indonesian-born Muslim whose grandmother married a Chinese merchant here, “but I know my son died that day because he looked Chinese.”
Many of the 5 million ethnic Chinese here, who represent a scant 2% of the population in this predominantly Muslim nation of 248 million, have for years awaited the results of a government investigation of the attacks. Twelve years later, no arrests have been made.
The inquiry stalled years ago when investigators said they failed to find hard evidence of military involvement. The Indonesian government has recently suggested that it will no longer pursue the matter, despite lingering suspicions that the riots were instigated by soldiers influenced by the nation’s political leadership.
Without an official report to the contrary, many Indonesians question whether the rapes even occurred.

For ethnic Chinese, long viewed as scapegoats for Indonesia’s economic woes, life after the 1998 riots has been bittersweet. On one hand, more Chinese Indonesians have run for public office and a number of discriminatory laws have been repealed. Yet many still feel like unwanted outsiders, their community cast as a greedy merchant class with allegiances to Indonesia and China.
Without question, analysts say, there has been progress since the ouster of President Suharto, whose government required ethnic Chinese to adopt Indonesian names and banned Chinese characters and festivals.
After the dictator was forced from office in 1998, the year of the riots that many believe he fomented, Indonesia has encouraged the spread of Chinese culture.
“The lot of ethnic Chinese here has greatly improved since Suharto, but that doesn’t mean the riots’ underlying problems have been resolved,” said Leo Suryadinata, a professor at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University who focuses on Chinese Indonesian issues. “Issues of poverty, ethnic tension and a gap between rich and poor that led to the violence are still very much alive.”
Many say the rise of Islamic fundamentalism has further marginalized ethnic Chinese. In one rural province, clerics recently disrupted a Chinese parade, arguing that the noise of firecrackers and running dragons interfered with Muslim prayer rites.
“Many Indonesians still believe people with Chinese blood keep close allegiances to Beijing,” said Andy Yentriyani, a leader of the National Commission on Violence Against Women. “The idea is that any freedoms or authority given the ethnic Chinese will come back to harm Indonesia.”
Discrimination against ethnic Chinese here dates back centuries to the Dutch colonial era, when thousands were killed or forced into ghettos. Ethnic Chinese were also attacked in the Indonesian government’s anti-communist purges of the mid-1960s.
In the 1980s came calls for Suharto to rein in numerous large Chinese business conglomerates that many argued controlled the economy. But while most ethnic Chinese were considered to be members of the wealthy merchant class, many were actually small-business men, shopkeepers or traders.
In Ruminah’s lower-class street in East Jakarta, neighbors viewed her as Chinese, even though the mother of five has never truly identified with her Chinese roots. She can’t speak Chinese and doesn’t even know where in China to trace her roots.
“They would ask the same question: ‘Why do you live here among the poor? We know that all the Chinese are rich,’ ” Ruminah recalled.
Local boys teased her 14-year-old son, Gunawan, but not because of his learning disability. “They harassed him because he looked Chinese,” she said. “He would come home crying, and my husband would tell him to ignore the taunts. He said they were just words.”
That changed during the 1998 Asian financial crisis, when mobs took to the streets and attacked ethnic Chinese they blamed for the economic downturn. Many analysts believe Suharto encouraged the violence to take the pressure off his government for the loss of jobs and rising prices.
On the first night, Ruminah went looking for her son, who had gone to watch a fire at a local mall. Later, wearing a mask to guard against the stench, she inspected hundreds of corpses laid out in the parking lot outside the mall.
She never found him. “I only have his burned clothes,” she said, her voice breaking.
For years, Indonesia was viewed as a perilous place for ethnic Chinese. In 2004, a U.S. court granted political asylum to an Indonesian national of Chinese descent who claimed that a return to her homeland would amount to a death sentence. She was just one among the tens of thousands of Chinese Indonesians who have fled the country.
Even now, as ethnic Chinese citizens run for office, prejudices continue.
Sofyan Tan was recently defeated in a run for mayor in the city of Medan, the capital of northern Sumatra. In an interview, the city’s first Chinese Indonesian political candidate said opponents waged a campaign to scare voters into believing he would sell the nation to China.
“More hard work is required to show that leadership cannot be based on race and religion,” he said.
Activists say there are new efforts at national healing. Prabowo Subianto, the former son-in-law of Suharto, met last summer with ethnic Chinese to publicly explain for the first time that he was not involved in the mayhem.
“Many are still ambivalent about his story,” said Jemma Purdey, a research fellow at the Center of Southeast Asian Studies at Monash University in Australia. “But if you meet someone and they tell you straight to your face they didn’t have part in things, you have to respect that.”
Last fall, government officials also met with historians to draft language for Indonesian school textbooks acknowledging that the anti-ethnic Chinese bloodshed actually happened.
“The scar from that violence remains,” said Yentriyani, the commission leader. “How much Indonesians want to heal it, depends on who you talk to.”
For now, Ruminah isn’t taking any chances about the return of ethnic violence. She runs her beauty shop out of her home, where she feels more secure.
She has seen Muslim youths break off a relationship with her college-age daughter once they learn of her Chinese roots. And she misses her son, who never got the chance to come to terms with his Chinese heritage.
Still, she says, she won’t follow the ethnic Chinese who have fled Indonesia since the riots.
“I’m not ashamed of who I am,” she said. “This is my country. Where else can I go?”
