Uighurs in Xinjian

The Uighurs, from whose language the title of this blog stems, are one of the many minorities in China. There are some movements of Uighur separatism and/or Chinese repression against their culture.

Each of these two boys will definitely grow up to be a "chirayliq yigit", handsome young man.

They are indeed very attractive people but unfortunately discriminated against in PRC China. They rightfully or wrongfully are blamed for most pick pocketing in cities in China. With so much odds stacked against them, what can they do ?
