Musician tortured to death in China
China has detained around 1 million Uighurs in their so-called “reeducation centres” forcing them to undergo brainwashing programs. Studying communist propaganda and giving thanks to Chinese President Xi Jinping is the first painful lesson. Further lessons include waterboarding and other forms of torture on the ethnic minority. The Chinese government, being the arrogant bastards they have become claim that the camps are simply vocational and training centres intended to exterminate extremism, and that they’re teaching detainees useful and valuable skills—better described as accentuating ‘The year of the pig’ it seems!
The world-famous Uyghur singer and musician Abdurehim Heyit who was detained and held without formal charge by Chinese government, has died on Saturday in detention at the age of 55, after enduring two years of brutal torture, in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR). Heyit, reportedly had been arrested because of one of his songs called “Atilar”, or “Forefathers.”
