Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt have been silent in the face of the mass incarceration of Muslims in Xinjiang

The US envoy on religious liberty has said he is “disappointed” at the response of governments in the Islamic world to China’s mass incarceration of Uighur Muslims, suggesting they had been threatened by Beijing.

Sam Brownback, ambassador at large for international religious freedom, said some majority-Muslim states did not want to draw attention to their own human rights record.
