Such revelations of these mass detention camps erode the confidence of the international community despite denials made repeatedly by the People's Republic of China.
The failure of the government of the People's Republic of China to respect and uphold basic human rights of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang, which includes freedom of movement and the liberty to practice their own religion, is totally unacceptable considering the circumstances in which China wants to project and position itself as a respectable world political power.
The discriminatory and oppressive crackdown is contrary to the norms of a universal society that is inclusive of cultural and religious composition based on pure egalitarian and classless values. The People's Republic of China should respect these values by adhering to calls made by the international community.
Millions of Uyghur at home and abroad must be allowed to leave peacefully as dignified citizens just like other ethnicities in China.
ABIM also urges 57 member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and citizens of the world to refrain from undertaking any normalization efforts with China which would only assist and justify the violation and injustices.
ABIM implores the Malaysian government and the Muslim world to continue to raise political pressure and ramp up diplomatic efforts so that the gross human rights violations suffered by Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang cease and those arbitrarily incarcerated be released from the detention camps immediately.
