XInjiang: Uyghur People Then and Now

The legacy of the Ming is found in the 100-word Eulogy praising Muhammad.

It is precisely because PRC is atheistic to the point of being antagonistic to Christianity, Judaism and Islam when their adherents operate outside the control of the CCP that leads to Beijing using Hui people to fight with Uyghur people, mainly by misleading both sides.

This has a lot to do with the Soviet Union's support of Uighur militants when they tried to interfere with Communist China after Mao split with Moscow over Chinese Communist policies during the Cold War era.

When the First East Turkestan Republic tried to gain Uighur independence in 1933, Ma's forces massacred many Uighurs, and overran the British embassy.

As well, corrupt Chinese warlords such as Jin Shuren frustrated the Uighurs by favoring the Chinese people in Xinjiang over Uighurs. In response to threats by the Uighurs, the White Russian garrison under Shuren's command revolted due to their treatment when faced with the Uighur rebel forces.

In response, Shuren fled to Moscow, leaving Sheng Shicai to rise to power in Xinjiang.

Prior to the First East Turkestan Republic, Xinjiang was a defacto Soviet Satellite state run by the Urumqi consul of the Soviet Union. In effect, the Soviet embassy ran the state with warlord Shicai in charge, provided that he consult with them on internal matters.

Four years after the East Turkestan Republic fell (1937) Shicai purged Xinjiang of forces hostile to Soviet interests to coincide with Stalin's Great Purge. This was referred as the Xinjiang War.

During the latter part of the 1930s, Xinjiang was nominally part of China but was actually part of the Soviet.

By Shicai designating Turkic Muslims into ethnicities, it may have been a Soviet attempt to create disunion among the Turkic people of Xinjiang. The use of the term "Uighur people" was objected to by Turkic Uighur leaders Mohammad Amin Burgha and Masud Sabri, with Burgha concerned about Turkic ethnicities designation and Sabri concerned about Shicai designating Turkic people as "Uighur people".

1942 marked the beginning of the end of warlord Sicai's rule in Xinjiang when he purged Urumqi of the Soviets and even had Mao's brother Mao Zemin killed. Now currying favor with the KMT (Nationalists), he may have felt frustrated by the slow response of KMT troop movement into XInjiang and erred by changing sides again in support of the Soviets when their war efforts turned the tide against the Germans in 1944.

By this time, Stalin refused to support Sicai's request for their aid and sent Sicai's request to the KMT, which led to him losing governship of Xinjiang shortly afterwards.

Both Burgha and Sabri are pan-Turkic rebels wishing to establish Western Chinese provinces such as Xinjiang as part of the East Turkestan Republic. Today PRC would rather Western China be a part of China, despite the practice of unpaid forced labor still being practised there.

Even though Western China is a vital part of China today, it is at the expense of the Turkic people there, most of whom are poor due to Beijing favoring the Han people over non-Han.

Unpaid forced labor is a means used by corrupt CCP officials to profit from "free labor", rather than providing promised monthly wages to girls seduced by the false employment scheme.

In the aftermath of a false employment scheme, PRC continually oppressed Turkic parents whose girls had "defected" back to Urumqi by forced unpaid labor in an irrigation project, once again showing that CCP officials there are illegally profiting from "free labor."
