Condemnation for treatment of China’s Muslim minority

Board of Deputies Senior Vice President Sheila Gewolb has condemned the treatment  of China’s Uighar Muslims by the country’s government.

She said: “These reports of psychological torture and brainwashing are just the latest in a series of disturbing and sinister revelations about the treatment of Uighur Muslims by the government of China. Because of our history, British Jews will refuse to turn a blind eye to the persecution of an entire community, anywhere. In the coming months, we will be working with partners in the British Muslim community to continue raising awareness of this grave issue.”
