Yiliyasijiang Reheman and his wife Mairinisha Abuduaini were expecting their second child when Yiliyasijiang went missing. Both were studying in Egypt when, in July 2017, the government rounded up about 200 Uyghurs — a predominantly Muslim ethnic group from China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region — forcing some back to China.
Mairinisha, who now lives in Turkey, learned through friends that Yiliyasijiang had been sent back to Xinjiang in China. She suspects he’s in one of the Chinese goverment’s secret internment camps, where an estimated one million or more mainly Muslim people have been locked up and subjected to brainwashing with Chinese government propaganda.
Uyghurs, Kazakhs and others have been torn from their families and locked up in these camps since 2017 — a scandal that has unleashed a powerful movement for truth around the world. Mairinisha just wants her husband back safely with her and her children. “My husband should be released as soon as possible,” she says. “Our children need their father. I will never give up until we can be reunited with my husband.”
Take Action: Tell the President of the People’s Republic of China to release Yiliyasijiang Reheman immediately and unconditionally.
