Part 2: Her Mother Disappeared in China

In part one of this two-part series, we discussed the Chinese Communist Party's overt attempt to completely destroy the culture and identity of millions of Uighur Muslims living in Western China.  From arresting people in the middle of the night, to forcing them to attend reeducation camps for years, to their ruthless pursuit of limiting Uighur births through forced abortions and sterilization, the evidence is overwhelming that China's abuse of their own people is only getting worse. This week, we bring this horrific story closer to home by interviewing Ziba Murat, a Uighur woman who hasn't heard from or spoken to her mother in over two years. Since her mother's disappearance, it has surfaced that the Chinese Communist Party placed her in a concentration camp, and refuses to give updates or acknowledge her disappearance or when she will be released.
