Gay McDougall, anggota Komite PBB untuk Penghapusan Diskriminasi Rasial, mengatakan pada hari Jumat bahwa pihkanya telah menerima banyak laporan yang dapat dipercaya yang menyebut 1 juta warga etnis Uighur di China ditahan. Mereka ditahan di kamp-kamp interniran yang diselimuti rahasia.

Komunitas Uighur didominasi warga Muslim. Di Xinjiang, komunitas Uighur dilaporkan kerap terlibat konflik dengan komunitas etnis Han.

China melalui delegasinya di PBB menjawab tuduhan itu dengan menegaskan bahwa Beijing menekan kejahatan ekstremis dan teroris di Xinjiang sesuai dengan hukum. "Tidak menargetkan minoritas etnis tertentu atau melakukan 'de-Islamisasi'dari wilayah barat laut," kata delegasi China, seperti dikutip Reuters, Senin (13/8/2018).

"Mereka yang ditipu oleh ekstremisme agama akan dibantu dengan pemukiman kembali dan (diberi) pendidikan ulang," lanjut dia.
