TikTok apologises over Feroza Aziz’s talk on Ethnic Cleansing camps in Uyghur

UIGHAR-min

Severely harsh conditions the Muslim minority has been undergoing in China.

TikTok has apologised to a user for removing a video that criticised the Chinese state’s treatment of minority Muslims in Uyghur.

In the video she posted last week, Feroza Aziz gave a tutorial on eyelash curling while talking about how Muslims were being treated, and saying she wanted to spread awareness of the situation.

The UN estimates that more than a million Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang region in western China have incarcerated in camps in what has been branded “ethnic cleansing” by some. China claims the camps are for “education”.

On Twitter this week Ms Aziz said she had been blocked from posting on TikTok for a month, and on Wednesday posted that her viral video had been taken down, only to be restored later

The popular video app TikTok apologized this week to a teen user after it said it erroneously blocked access to her account and removed one of her videos criticizing Chinese treatment of Uighur Muslims.

Feroza Aziz, 17, on Saturday uploaded what at first appears to be a beauty video but turns out to be her listing the harsh conditions the minority group has faced in China.

The video, as of Wednesday, had garnered more than 1.5 million views, but within days of posting, Aziz could not access her account and the video was briefly taken down.
