The news of Human Right violation that happened in Uighur Muslims in People's Republic of China (PRC), Became public attention until several weeks in Indonesia. As we know before, the news of Human Right violation that happened in Uighur Muslims was heard by International Human rights.
As many media reports, The Committee on the Elimination of United Nations Racial Discrimination which previously claimed hundreds of thousands to millions of Xinjiang residents were detained in re-education barracks. In these camps, they get indoctrination, prohibition of carrying out religious rituals, even torture and forced labour.
The University Student Executive Board (BEM-U) of the University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) held a public discussion to find a solution to violations in the Uighur, Saturday (29/12). "What we need to voice is humanity," said Sholahuddin Al-Fatih, SH., MH, UMM Law Faculty lecturer when asked to be a speaker.
Not to be forgotten, there were also many countries that were in the same boat as Uighurs. As in Myanmar, there were Rohingya, in the Philippines, there were Moro and Thai in Pattani. "The thing that must be done by students on the events in the Uighur is to be aware of humanity and react to it in an intellectual way," he said.
Because an academic, he said, had the potential to lead public opinion. By leading opinions, he added, we submitted conclusions to the public. Let the people judged themselves. That things were done by the PRC to Uighur Muslims since April 2018 until now were not the right thing.
The PRC should provide protection for the beliefs chosen by the Uighur people. "Reflecting the peace felt by Hui Muslims (in the PRC), Uighur Muslims should also be like that. The Hui Tribe is free to embrace Islam calmly, why not with Uighurs? "
"To respond to events that happen in Uighur, students are expected to be critical and massive to lead opinions," he said. Even so, he did not expect any statements that smelled of violence. Do not let, he continued, students be provoked with issues that cannot be accounted for.
Quoting from the report of the World Uighur Congress, BEM-U Coordinator for Law and Human Rights Tomy Alfarizy said, the detainees were jailed without charge. "They were also reportedly not given enough food and widespread torture had happened. Plus, they don't receive legal assistance at all, "he said.
Through his statement, BEM-U, the Semi-Autonomous Institution and Student Activity Unit at UMM stated, first, urged the UN immediately conducted an investigation by sending United Nation's High Commission for Human Right.
Second, asked the PRC government to open access to the Xinjiang Province area as a form of openness to issues circulating among the international community. Third, encouraged the Indonesian government ran free politics as a pioneer of peace in the world.
Fourth, encouraged international institutions that were engaged in the field of peace and tolerance among religious people were always active and contribute to various humanitarian issues. Finally were calling on Indonesian people to remain critical of various humanitarian issues.
"Through this attitude statement, it is hoped that it will be able to become a guide for us all in responding to humanitarian issues, for the sake of upholding the rule of law based on human values," said Tomy, a 2015 Faculty of Law student. (Win)
