Darren Byler writes on SupChina that “Uyghur ‘patriotism’ in China’s Xinjiang region now requires the active disavowal of the Uyghur way of life. There is an ongoing attempt by Han Chinese authorities to erase a native system of knowledge and the basic elements that make Uyghur life Uyghur: language, religion, and culture. It begins with an insistence on the ‘national language,’ Mandarin Chinese.”
