CCI Statement of Support for the Uyghur People

We the Imams and Scholars of Canada stand in solidarity with the Uyghur people.

We ask the People’s Republic of China to free the Uyghur people from its concentration camps, return the children to their families and restore their freedom of religion.

We call upon the Government of Canada to prohibit trade in products produced in China’s forced labour camps with Uyghur slave labour.

We demand that this issue be urgently placed on the agenda of the UN Security Council.

The world must act to stop the ongoing genocide.
