Football tipster Jozil is a way to do enormous damage to a publication
A post by Mesut Ozil on his Twitter and Instagram accounts against the Chinese government has angered the leadership of the Asian country and is set to inflict heavy financial losses on Arsenal and English football in general. Today, Chinese state-owned television channel CCTV has refused to broadcast a live derby between Arsenal and Manchester City, and there are likely to be other restrictions on the huge Chinese market.
What exactly is it about? Two days ago, Jozil expressed concern that there was discriminatory treatment of Uighur Muslims in China, a Turkic nationality living in northwestern China. A former German national accuses authorities in the most populous country of subjecting the people in question to torture. The Koran burns there, mosques and spiritual schools are closed, and teachers are killed one by one. Uighurs are warriors who resist the chase, the world champion wrote.
In addition, Yozil attacks other Muslims in the world who, according to him, remain silent on the subject. The Chinese Football Association revealed to the local paper The Paper that they were angry and disappointed at Yozil`s words and found them unacceptable. In this regard, it was decided that today`s Arsenal match analyzed by football partners list against City should not be broadcast in the country. Instead, he will record a meeting between Wolverhampton and Tottenham.
Arsenal were quick to distinguish themselves from the statement of their footballer, explaining that they did not want to touch political issues.
Confidential documents of the Chinese Communist Party reveal details of the persecution of Uighurs in Northwest China. The documents, designated `China Cables`, were announced by the ICIJ International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. It is clear from them that the so-called training centers, `set up by Chinese authorities in Xinjiang province, are in fact highly guarded detention camps. So far, Beijing has claimed that staying at these centers` is voluntary. However, the secret documents reveal otherwise. It is estimated that more than 1 million people have been detained in correctional camps - without a lawsuit and for at least one year. Most camps belong to the Muslim minority of the Uighurs.
The Uighurs, who in the majority profess Islam, are ethnically close to the Turks and have long claimed that they are politically, economically and culturally harassed in China. When the Chinese Communists seized power in 1949, they then annexed East Turkestan to the country. Beijing authorities now accuse Uighur groups of separatism and terrorism, DW explains.
