Several NGOs have accused Saudi Arabia of having arbitrarily arrested four Uighurs and of trying to extradite them to China, where their fate is extremely uncertain. The detainees include two men who had travelled to the country to make a pilgrimage to Mecca in November 2020, as well as a mother and her 13-year-old daughter, who were arrested on March 31, according to several sources. Videos of their cries for help are circulating on social media.
This discussion is focused on the plight of the Uyghurs in their homeland and on the ways to uphold their human rights and stop their persecution by the Chinese Communist Party and its enablers around the world.
