China's secret 'brainwashing' camps - BBC News

Leaked documents detail for the first time China’s systematic brainwashing of hundreds of thousands of Muslims in a network of high-security prison camps.

The Chinese government has consistently claimed the camps in the far western Xinjiang region offer voluntary education and training.

But official documents, seen by BBC Panorama, show how inmates are locked up, indoctrinated and punished.

China’s UK ambassador Liu Xiaoming dismissed the documents as fake news. He said the measures had safeguarded local people and there had not been a single terrorist attack in Xinjiang in the past three years.

“In total disregard of the facts, some people in the West have been fiercely slandering and smearing China over Xinjiang in an attempt to create an excuse to interfere in China’s internal affairs, disrupt China’s counter-terrorism efforts in Xinjiang and thwart China’s steady development,” he said.

The leak was made to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), which has worked with 17 media partners, including BBC Panorama and The Guardian newspaper in the UK.

  1. I want to trust this, but since i saw how the western media spin the story around Hong Kong protest, I'm having a hard time trusting western media when it comes to China. To be fair i also don't really trust those from Chinese media. Both have their own agenda and here we are watching and not getting reliable news.

  2. America killing terrorists is "war on terror" and applauded. China imprison terrorists is called "human rights violations" using hearsay and anecdotes of dissidents as proof. America would like nothing better than see anarchists free to cause chaos and violence in Xinjiang! Keep dreaming.

  3. The documents BBC provided has many wrong uses of Chinese characters and the principles in this so -called document were composed in old Chinese characters which are still used in Taiwan instead of mainland China. There are many people holding hostile to China but if they study Chinese, they will find this documents are informal in format and not in accordance with the habit of Chinese writing.

  4. If America wants to sue China with xinjiang issues, please use this document BBC provided. The evidence will be turned down in court when pointing a bunch of wrong uses of Chinese writing.

  5. This is so fake, for example the choice of the translations of the policies are too narrow and one-sided as i can read all of the Chinese on the provided document on the video. I am not the type of Chinese that do not keep an open mind about new information and new founded truth but i also think individually. This can lead to unnecessary fear.

  6. Why everyone is trying to make Islam look bad? Clinton made ISIS. George Bush made 9/11. The whole world is trying to make it look bad. Maybe it's because Islam made people go against their cruel government. Gandhi and Islamic revolution of Iran. Resistance in Palestine and Lebonen. Time for me to look more into Quran and someonethat Gandhi mentioned was his hero, Imam Hussain

  7. Tbh, im so disappointed in china (my own country) i never knew about this till i started Tiktok. If your muslim, trust me, im not evil. Even my best friend is muslim, but im just speechless, if it is real i would be so mad but im also scared cuz i cant do anything about it since im only a teen. I know that im not muslim but i hope Allah will do something about it, i want it to stop. Oh and if your reading this, could you please stop hating because it makes me feel a lot worse about myself even though im innocent. And not all ppl in china are evil, most of them are innocent too

  8. They will never stop even Corona virus againts them… Maybe this communist party need to watch Finding Nemo…they keep separated kids from their parents..what a Terorist government.
