Kuwaiti MPs Mohammad Hayef, Nayef al-Murdas, Dr. Adel al-Damkhi and Abdullah Fahad held a solidarity stand with East Turkistan Muslims (the Uyghur minority in China) of the People's Republic of China in the Great Hall of the Kuwaiti National Assembly. The Kuwaiti parliament was always racing to support Islamic issues and to stand with the oppressed peoples in all parts of the world. The Kuwaiti MPs urged the Kuwaiti government, represented by the Foreign Ministry, and also urged the Islamic countries, the League of Arab States and the Organization of the Islamic Conference to practice pressure on the Chinese side and review the agreements held with him.
For his part, MP Mohammed Hayef said that the members of the National Assembly are racing in the support of Islamic issues, especially the issues of people who are voiceless and face religious persecution. Hayef said the abuses against the minority were blatant violations of Muslim rights and deserved actions to be made. The MP, Mohammed Hayef wondered about the silence of the Islamic community towards what is happening and appealed to the Arab and Islamic parliaments to support the Muslims. He has also said that two million Muslims are in prisons of China facing the worst kinds of torture and abuse. He called on the government, the parliament and the parliamentary foreign affairs committee to review the agreements signed with the Chinese side, calling on the Foreign Ministry to denounce these events and take a serious stand towards what is happening.
"Unfortunately, China is trying to wipe the Islamic identity of this minority, which has more population than some Islamic countries, and they are subject to a practices that do not suit the teachings of their religion," said Adel al-Damkhi.
He also called for an end to the agreements with the Chinese government, whether commercial or otherwise, and do not hold any before guaranteeing the fair treatment of Muslims in China, indicating that the Muslims of the Philippines enjoy autonomy under the Philippine authorities.
