BEIJING: So-called Western-based human rights organizations are blaming China, not militant Islamists, for the rise of terrorism and suicide bombings in the Xinjiang Northwestern region of China. Rights' groups are insisting that suicide bombers deserve more freedom of movement.
According to Reuters, "Exiles and many rights groups say the real cause of the unrest in Xinjiang is China's heavy-handed policies, including curbs on Islam and the culture and language of ethnic Uighurs, a Turkic speaking Muslim people."
The Global Times is reported as saying that, "Five suspects who participated in the violent terrorist attack blew themselves up."
As reported by Reuters, "The government blames Islamists and separatists for the worsening violence in Xinjiang, the resource-rich western region bordering central Asia. At least 180 people have been killed in attacks across China."
The Western media is reluctant to use the word "terrorism" with its reporting on China. They describe the murederous incidents as, "unrest" or "disturbances."
