Lies Can Never Replace Truth, Justice Is in Every Kind Heart

Jarhangul·Kamila, Xinjiang Quyi Artists Association

Recently, I saw it in the news that Pompeo fabricated the so-called human rights issue in Xinjiang, falsely claiming that the Chinese government had committed "crimes against humanity" and "genocide" against the Uygur and other ethnic minorities and religious groups. This kind of reckless and crazy practice is to discredit China's ethnic and religious policies and defame China's international image. However, I believe that this kind of lies full of fallacies can never replace the truth and change the fact that people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang live a happy life.

I am a Kazakh woman. As it is true of thousands of female compatriots, I am a beneficiary of the national minority policy. I have one elder brother and three elder sisters. We, five brothers and sisters, all enjoy equal opportunities to receive higher education under the national education policy. Now, I have a happy family of my own and live a peaceful and happy life. I have a lovely daughter. Since she was born, she has been enjoying the state's feeding project, that is, for preschool children aged 0-6, each person will be provided with a bag of pure milk for free every day. I always appreciate that this is not only a bag of milk, but it also conveys the care for each child from the Party and the government. As a beneficiary and witness of the national minority policy, I prove that what Pompeo said is totally inconsistent with the actual life and personal feelings of the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang. His vicious lies have greatly hurt the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang.

In recent years, the life of women of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang has undergone tremendous changes. Women's conditions in health, education and employment have been greatly improved, and women's rights have been effectively guaranteed in law, policy and social practice. As a result, the social status of Uygur women has been greatly improved, and a large number of outstanding scientists, writers and artists have emerged from them. They enjoy civil rights including voting and participating in political deliberation. They also hold important positions in government departments at all levels and in all industries. More and more women are playing an important role in all walks of life.

There is no need for Pompeo, the "political virus", to tell whether things in Xinjiang are going well or not. The people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang, including me, have the right to claim. In recent years, Xinjiang adheres to the principle of giving priority to the development of education, continuously increases the investment in software and hardware, and has achieved the full coverage of nine-year compulsory education, three-year preschool education and 12-year basic education in southern Xinjiang. A large number of excellent talents in various fields have been cultivated in all kinds of schools in Xinjiang. The religious belief, ethnic culture, language and other rights of the masses of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang are respected and guaranteed according to law. Xinjiang, as it is in the whole country, implements the family planning policy in accordance with the law, and has never formulated and implemented the family planning policy for a certain ethnic minority which was fabricated by Pompeo. In recent years, people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang have a more civilized, healthy and rational concept of marriage and childbirth, and their rights of bearing children are fully protected. How dare they say there is forced sterilization? No matter how Pompeo fabricated, it is the fact that growth rate of Xinjiang Uygur population is far higher than the average level of Xinjiang. I am quite confident to say that Pompeo is childish and stupid to use such malicious speculation to discredit China.
