    Nigeria would like to bring the Ürümqi riots in July to the attention of all MUN representatives.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asi...ic/8135203.stm


    Although no-one, apart from the citizens of Ürümqi and the Chinese government, is clear as to what actually happened in the riots. Nigeria condemns the Chinese government and police for their handling of the matter. Countless lives, whatever the number, could have been saved if the government acted quickly, Instead they showed a lax nature towards to cause.


    Now, Terrorism in the form of Al-Qaeda has threatened China with revenge for the deaths of the Uighurs.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...ur-deaths.html

    Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Mahgreb (AQIM) said it would target the 50,000 Chinese workers in Algeria and elsewhere in Northern Africa.

    Two extremist web sites affiliated with al-Qaeda also made threats against the large numbers of Chinese people working in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East.
    Nigeria asks that China come clean, and tell us exactly what happened, why they were so slow in their response to the matter and finally, why they felt the need to stop Muslims from worshipping at mosques. Surely actions like these will end up worsening the situation instead of helping them?

    I would like to hear other MUM reps views on the matter, notably China and other members of the Security Council.

    China would consider this ridiculous. You state that only we know what happened, but condemn us for it anyway? Without any facts I don't think you can. It was a protest that turned violent and we had to bring police and armed forces in to deal with it.

    You will no more details when we have it clear. A demonstration turned violent and to prevent further damage and death our armed forces had to suppress it. Surely that is a simple matter, though a regrettable one. W had expected more help from the international community rather than condemnation.

    If it is as you say, then why are you hiding as much as you are? Nigeria is condemning you for the way you went about the whole situation.
    Yes, you say it was a protest that turned violent and you had to use some force, but why the need to block Uighurs access to Mosques? It seems you're going against the Uighurs? It seems likely considering you label their groups terrorists..

    As stated before, you are receiving this condemnation because of your actions. Also, this is not the first time this has happened. There has been history between Han Chinese and Uighurs. So, why did you not get the two groups together before and come to some sort of peaceful resolution so these attacks could have been prevented in the first place?

    Hiding? For not releasing information when we dont know all the details yet? It is a fairly internal matter anyway. Our police and armed forces did what was needed in order to protect people and property. This included preventing the terrorists from entering mosques.

    Then, isnt that a form of discrimination against the Uighur considering that you are preventing all Uighur from worshipping. If the Han Chinese started this situation, what would you have done to stop them?
    Also, now it seems you're pleading to the Muslim World for "understanding." But how can they "understand" anything if they see police blocking entrance to Mosques and their fellow Muslims being branded terrorists?

    We feel that negotiation with terrorists may be the best cause of action if it will save lives, as we recently demonstrated by releasing the MEND leader in our country. A ceasefire was announced by the group after. Considering your problems, dialogue would have been the best course of action, although I know China and dialogue is a patchy combination.

    they are being prevented from worshiping in order to prevent terrorism. The han chinease would be stopped just the same.

    they are being stoped because they as a group are commiting terrorist acts, not because they are muslims. We do not consider all muslims to be terrorists, but as they are the ones commiting there acts they are the ones being prevented from doing things that generaly lead to terrorism.

    We feel that terrorists must be shown that their actions are wrong and will be met with force when needed.

    What have "they" done that justifies your branding?

    But then, you are bringing religion to this by preventing them from worshipping in the name of "preventing terrorism."

    Nigeria feels that these actions taken by China is why the Muslim world has responded the way it as. Also, why Al-Qaeda is getting involved.
    We feel you owe the people of Uighar an apology for your actions.

    They have started a riot in which people died and damage was broken. These acts will not be tolerated and we will stand against them. Worshiping in a mosque of course would not usually cause terrorism, but unfortunately for the majority of Muslims who are peaceful, many have chosen to try and corrupt this religion into a terrorist cause. As such we must stop these places from being used as such in order to protect the public. Unfortunately the only way we feel this can be done is to prevent them being used at all for a while.

    If it is true that these Muslims started the riots, then Nigeria can see where you are coming from. However, we still think your methods were a little harsh but that is just out opinion on the matter.

    Maybe it was harsh. We simply consider it the best way to prevent terrorism.

    China understands your concern. We do try to minimise loss of life, but more would have died if we hadn't done anything. The protest was getting violent and we feared it was turning into a riot.

    India urges peace and diplomacy in this issue. However, we feel that it is an internal issue and not one for the UN to get directly involved in.
