China has added another incident of discrimination to its long list of atrocities against the Uyghur minority in East Turkestan, which has led to the region being deemed as a “police state.”
Police in Eastern Turkistan cut the dresses of Muslim Uyghur women in the middle of the street with the justification that their frocks were “too long,” according to the several sources online including Documenting Oppression Against Muslims (DOAM).
