These are the words of your sister, Zumrat Dawut, describing what happened to her in a concentration camp in Chinese-occupied East Turkestan. She was one of the many brave Uyghur women who gave evidence at the recent Uyghur Tribunal held in Westminster , attended by Islam21c, a few weeks ago.
While she was being tortured in a concentration camp for over 60 days, her husband, who is a Pakistani citizen, threatened Chinese officials that he would go to the media. And guess what—she was released.
Action of ONE man saved her life!
Islam21c was founded on the principles of defending Muslims’ rights. We have been working hard behind the scenes since our inception to create a united front against hatred, taking real actions to make a difference. Using the power of the media and our influence to effect good change in our community for Muslims.
The situation of sister Zumrat and many more Muslims like her around the world makes our work even more meaningful.
