‘Why not speak against Uighur genocide?’: Activist to Rihanna, other celebs
About The Video

  • Activist Rushan Abbas questioned the silence of international celebrities on Uyghur genocide. Citing Rihanna’s tweet on farmers' protest, Abbas said ‘why aren’t we talking about this’. The pop star’s recent tweet backing farmers’ agitation led to a Twitter war diving celebrities. A clutch of Indian celebs backed the government amid criticisms by Rihanna, Greta Thunberg and others. Uighur activists have also written to Rihanna to also represent their case. A recent news report said Uighur women are 'systematically raped' at China's Xinjiang camps. Reacting to it, the US govt said it is 'deeply disturbed' while the UK has vowed action following the probe. China has denied detention of Uighur Muslims and called these vocational training camps.
