It is unfortunate that Habib Ali al-Jifri, a popular scholar in the Arab world, in a recent lecture has misused his platform by propagating information that is all at once incorrect, biased, and otherwise detrimental to the lives of an entire Muslim nation colonized and oppressed by China. Although he tepidly acknowledges that China has done wrong to Uyghurs and is not fully innocent, a number of his claims remain inaccurate and deserve to be corrected. This article attempts to walk through some of these inaccuracies, and correct such claims that ultimately work to delegitimize and downplay the deplorable reality of Uyghurs and other Turkic-Muslim peoples of East Turkistan (renamed and referred to as Xinjiang, meaning new territory in Mandarin, by the Chinese occupation).

Maybe the Shaykh should be using his profile to highlight the plight of the oppressed people of East Turkistan. Instead seeking to minimise their oppression.

He seems to also be parroting the arguments of the U.A.E. that the plight of the Uyghurs is not an Islamic issue but a territorial dispute.

ALLAH protect us.
