That a Muslim should take in marriage one of alien faith is not objected to; it is rather deemed a meritorious act thus to bring an unbeliever to the true religion The Muslim woman on the other hand must not be given in marriage to a non-Muslim; such a union is regarded as the most heinous of sins In this matter however compromises are sometimes made with heaven: the marriage of a Turki princess with the emperor Ch'ien-lung has already been referred to; and when the present writer passed through Minjol (a day's journey west of Kashgar) in 1902 a Chinese with a Turki wife (? concubine) was presented.

The Khitan Qara-Khitai empire in Central Asia kept Chinese characteristics in their state since the Chinese characteristics appealed to the Muslim Central Asians and helped validate Qara Khita rule over them despite the fact that Han Chinese were to be found among the population the Qara Khitan because it was comparatively small so it is clear that the Chinese characteristics were not kept to appease them the Mongols later moved more Han Chinese into Besh Baliq Almaliq and Samarqand in Central Asia to work as aristans and farmers.

The historical area what is modern day Xinjiang consisted the distinct areas the Tarim Basin and Dzungaria and was originally populated by Indo-European Tocharian and Iranic Saka peoples who practiced the Buddhist religion The area was subjected to Turkification and Islamification at the hands invading Turkic Muslims. Southern Xinjiang is where the majority the Uyghur population resides while it is in Northern Xinjiang cities where the majority the Han (90%) population Xinjiang reside. Southern Xinjiang is dominated by its nine million Uighur majority population while northern Xinjiang is where the mostly urban Han population holds sway. This situation has been followed by an imbalance in the economic situation between the two ethnic groups since the Northern Junghar Basin (Dzungaria) has been more developed than the Uighur south.

The first story is from the 24 Exemplars Filial Piety (二十四孝 pinyin: Èrshísìxiào) a collection tales about filial piety compiled by Guo Jujing a Yuan Dynasty (1260-1368) scholar from Fujian Province (see Littlejohn 2010 pp 139-140).The 13th story the collection narrates how a man called Guo Ju (郭巨; pinyin: Guō Jù) buried his son alive so that his mother. After being converted to Islam the descendants the previously Buddhist Uyghurs in Turfan failed to retain memory their ancestral legacy and falsely believed that the "infidel Kalmuks" (Dzungars) were the ones who built Buddhist monuments in.

After a Han Chinese man named Xiaohe and a Uyghur woman named Aygul married the Uyghur women was physically assaulted by her father A Uyghur family cut f their daughter a Uyghur woman Ahman who had a Han Chinese husband named Ming When she had a Han Chinese boyfriend in school her fellow Uyghurs violently assaulted her Uyghurs are ten angered and shun inter-ethnic families with Han men and Uyghur women These interethnic pairs fled Xinjiang to Beijing. Confucianism including classical and Han Confucianism provided a view the cosmos and social order that legitimated the Chinese patrilineal patrilocal and patriarchal family system Confucian emphasis on obligations to patrilineal ancestors and Confucian exaltation filial piety contributed to a moral order in which families were central to human identity and to a family system organized hierarchically so that men and older generations had considerable power over women and younger generations (Ebrey.

Satuq Bughra Khan and his son directed endeavors to proselytize Islam among the Turks and engage in military conquests.

A chain aggressive and belligerent press releases in the 1990s making false claims about violent insurrections in Xinjiang and exaggerating both the number Chinese migrants and the total number Uyghurs in Xinjiang were made by the former Soviet supported URFET leader Yusupbek Mukhlisi. Uyghur nationalists ten incorrectly claim that 5% Xinjiang's population in 1949 was Han and that the other 95% was Uyghur erasing the presence Kazakhs Xibes and others and ignoring the fact that Hans were around one third Xinjiang's population at 1800 during the time the Qing Dynasty. The peasants are fairly well f as the soil is rich the abundant water-supply free and the taxation comparatively light It was always interesting to meet them taking their live stock into market Flocks sheep with tiny lambs black and white pattered along the dusty road; here a goat followed its master like a dog trotting behind the diminutive ass which the farmer bestrode; or boys clad in the whity-brown native cloth shouted incessantly at donkeys almost invisible under enormous loads forage or carried fowls and ducks in bunches head downwards a sight that always made me long to come to the rescue the luckless birds. The example Chinese thinking the Western being selfish is not another inaccurate depiction Or at least not an accurate view based on the views my community here in the “west” The discussion or at least growing up here is that the Chinese adults cannot fathom the idea “kicking” their kids out at 18 and not caring for them under the pretence allowing your child to become more independent Is it a practice independency or selfishness? Is the opposite oppressive and enabling? This all depends on the semiotics your environment Just an opinion from someone that is raised in the “west” and married into an Anglo-Saxon family with bi-racial children. However in Chinese culture there is another an ancient tradition materialism based on the concept filial piety and on the structure the Chinese family This materialistic worldview is completely different from a simply individualistic or hedonistic materialism because it emanates from the moral and hierarchical Confucian ideal familial interdependence The Chinese family was founded on a ‘reciprocal bargain’ (Knapp 2013) between parents and children; parents took care their children and children would later give back to their parents It is no coincidence that many stories about filial piety revolve around the subject food. Both Han economic migrants from other parts China and Uyghur economic migrants from southern Xinjiang have been flooding into northern Xinjiang since.

The Chinese government pointed out that it was in the 9th century when Uyghurs migrated into Xinjiang, but since many Uyghurs believe in the opposite whatever the Chinese government says they eagerly believe books written by Uyghur authors which glorify their past and assume what authors like Almas write is automatically true.

Khoja Afaq asked the 5th Dalai Lama when he fled to Lhasa to help his Afaqi faction take control the Tarim Basin (Kashgaria). The Dzungar leader Galdan was then asked by the Dalai Lama to restore Khoja Afaq as ruler Kashgararia. Khoja Afaq collaborated with Galdan's Dzungars when the Dzungars conquered the Tarim Basin from 1678-1680 and set up the Afaqi Khojas as puppet client rulers. The Dalai Lama blessed Galdan's conquest the Tarim Basin and Turfan Basin. Dr Joanne Smith Finley interviewed Uyghur youth and found that Uyghur parents ten pressure their children daughters and sons not to intermarry the reactions from their children are mixed with some Uyghurs like Mälikä and Aygül saying they would have to obey their parents and split up from their Han partner while other Uyghurs said they would abscond and run away with their Han partner like a 20 year old Uyghur woman named Gülshäm who said she would run f with a Han if the relationship was not allowed by her father.

In 1006 the Muslim Kara-Khanid ruler Yusuf Kadir (Qadir) Khan Kashgar conquered Khotan ending Khotan's existence as an independent state The war was described as a Muslim Jihad (holy war) by the Japanese Pressor Takao Moriyasu The Karakhanid Turkic Muslim writer Mahmud al-Kashgari recorded a short Turkic language poem about the conquest: English translation: We came down on them like a flood We went out among their cities We tore down the idol-temples We shat on the Buddha's head! The nomadic tribes the Yuezhi are documented in Chinese historical accounts in particular the 2nd-1st century BC "Records the Great Historian" or Shiji by Sima Qian According to these accounts:
One day Yuan Gu’s father and mother decided that his grandfather was too old to be useful so they decided to get rid him Yuan followed his father who used a litter to carry the grandfather to the mountains After his father abandoned the old man Yuan grabbed the litter and brought it home When his father asked him why he replied “Perhaps later you too will become old and will not be able to work again Merely in order to do the right thing I have retrieved it.” Terrified and ashamed his father realized the error his ways retrieved the old man and served him in a filial manner (see. When his father died Shen Fu mourned him and blamed himself for not serving him well It never occurred to him that his father might have been unjust After all he was never at home took concubines and drove Yun out the house only because a misunderstanding But filial piety means sacrifice children for parents Shen Fu could not have blamed his father otherwise he would have been an unfilial son.

Muslims gouged the eyes Buddhist murals along Silk Road caves and Kashgari recorded in his Turkic dictionary an anti-Buddhist poem/folk song. The military victories the Tang in the western regions and Central Asia have been fered as explanations as to why western peoples referred to China by the name "House Tang" (Tangjia) and another theory was suggested that China was called "Han" because the Han dynasty military victories against peoples in the north and the Turkic word for China "Tamghaj" has been possibly derived from Tangjia instead Tabgatch (Tuoba).

We can have another child but if mother dies we cannot replace her.” The wife did not dare to contradict him He began to dig the grave for his own son and suddenly he discovered a vase full gold in the earth – a gift Heaven to the filial son (see Lang. Many Uyghurs oppose mixed race s and the majority Uyghur men interviewed by Pressor Blaine Kaltman viewed Han Chinese women as physically unattractive and none them were dating Han women and had no desire to vieweing them as alien and "too skinny" while they said they were attracted to Turkish and Russian actresses Han parents in turn were negative towards Uyghur men and believed that women would suffer abuse at the hands a Uyghur spouse. Han youth were more open to interracial dating and Han parents both mothers and fathers were more willing to let their sons date Uyghur girls while they object to their daughters dating Uyghur boys since they believe their girls would be in danger. During the usurpation Wang Mang in China the dependent states the protectorate rebelled and returned to Xiongnu domination in AD 13 Over the next century Han China conducted several expeditions into the region re-establishing the protectorate from 74-76 91-107 and from 123 onward After the fall the Han dynasty (220) the protectorate continued to be maintained by Cao Wei (until 265) and the Western Jin Dynasty (from 265 onwards). Pliny the Elder Chap XXIV "Taprobane") reports a curious description the Seres (in the territories northwestern China) made by an embassy from Taprobane (Ceylon) to Emperor Claudius saying that they "exceeded the ordinary human height had flaxen hair and blue eyes and made an uncouth sort noise by way talking" suggesting they may be referring to the ancient Caucasian populations the. The Islamic attacks and conquest the Buddhist cities east Kashgar was started by the Turkic Karakhanid Satok Bughra Khan who in 966 converted to Islam and many tales emerged about the Karakhanid ruling family's war against the Buddhists Satok Bughra Khan's nephew or grandson Ali Arslan was slain by the Buddhists during the war Buddhism lost territory to Islam during the Karakhanid reign around the Kashgar area. A long war ensued between Islamic Kashgar and Buddhist Khotan which eventually ended in the conquest Khotan by Kashgar. Tibetans attacked and fought against the Kazakhs as they entered Tibet via Gansu and Qinghai In northern Tibet Kazakhs clashed with Tibetan soldiers and then the Kazakhs were sent to Ladakh. Tibetan troops robbed and killed Kazakhs 400 miles east Lhasa at Chamdo when the Kazakhs were entering Tibet. In 1934 1935 1936-1938 from Qumil Eliqsan led the Kerey Kazakhs to migrate to Gansu and the amount was estimated at 18,000 and they entered Gansu and Qinghai. It was pleasant to see the women riding alone on horseback managing their mounts to perfection They formed a sharp contrast to their Persian sisters who either sit behind their husbands or have their steeds led by the bridle; and instead keeping silence in public as is the rule for the shrouded women Iran these farmers' wives chaffered and haggled with the men in the bazar outside the city transacting business with their veils thrown back. Andijani (Kokandi) Turkic Muslim merchants (from modern Uzbekistan) who shared the same religion a similar culture cuisine clothing and phenotypes with the Altishahri Uyghurs frequently married local Altishahri women and the name "chalgurt" was applied to their mixed race daughters and sons the daughters were left behind with their Uyghur Altishahri mothers while the sons were taken by the Kokandi fathers when they returned to their homeland. The aforementioned motif food as a demonstration love is particularly interesting because until today Taiwanese and Chinese parents show that they care about their children by giving them food They might put pressure on their children every day they might push them and make their lives unhappy but they will keep on feeding them as a token parental love Support this website – take a look at one our books on Amazon The Turkic Qarakhanid and Uyghur Qocho Kingdoms were both states founded by invaders while the native populations the region were Iranic and Tocharian peoples along with some Chinese in Qocho and Indians who married and mixed with the Turkic invaders and prominent Qarakhanid people such as Mahmud Kashghari hold a high position among modern Uyghurs. Kashghari viewed the least Persian mixed Turkic dialects as the "purest" and "the most elegant". Persian Arab and other western Asian writers called China by the name "Tamghaj". The name "East Turkestan" was created by the Russian Sinologist Nikita Bichurin to replace the term "Chinese Turkestan" in 1829. "East Turkestan" was used traditionally to only refer to the Tarim Basin and not Xinjiang as a whole with Dzungaria being excluded from the area consisting "East Turkestan".

Al-Qaeda included an article in its magazine "Resurgence" promoting East Turkestan Independence titled "Did You Know? 10 Facts About East Turkistan" the article was ridden with errors and false claims such as claiming Quranic education was banned and included other claims such as "East Turkistan has never been a part China" and it was "independent China for more than 1,800 years" "In 1949 93 percent the population East Turkistan was Uyghur (Turk Muslims) while 7 percent was Chinese" and that "After the Communist takeover in 1949 more than 4.5 million Turkish Muslims were killed by the Communist government" with Al-Qaeda calling for the "occupied Muslim land" "East Turkistan" to be "recovered [into] the shade the Islamic Caliphate". In ancient China the area was known as "Xiyu" or "Western Regions" a name that became prevalent in Chinese records after the Han Dynasty took control the region. For the Uyghurs the traditional name the Tarim Basin in southern Xinjiang was Altishahr which means "six cities" in the Uyghur language The region Dzungaria in northern Xinjiang was named after its native inhabitants the Dzungar Mongols. The relationship to China was used by the Qara-Khanids to enhace their standing since Central Asian Muslims associated prestige and grandeur with China so the Arabic title "the king the East and China" (malek al-mašreq wa'l-Ṣin) and the Turkic title "Khan China" Ṭamḡāj Khan was extensively employed by Khans the Qara-khanids. Although in modern Urdu Chin means China Chin referred to Central Asia in Muhammad Iqbal's time which is why Iqbal wrote that "Chin is ours" (referring to the Muslims) in his song Tarana-e-Milli. Uyghur prostitutes were encountered by Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim who wrote they were especially to be found in Khotan. He commented on "venereal diseases". Two different branches the junior Bughra (bull camel) and the Arslan (lion) formed the Qarakhanid royal family The title "Khan China" (Tamghaj Khan) (تمغاج خان) was used by the Qarakhanid rulers. The Qarakhanids were the ones who are responsible for the modern Uyghur population being Muslim and the Qarakhanids were converted when Satuq Bughra Khan converted to Islam after contacts with the Muslim Samanids. Bughra Khan was overthrown by his nephew Satuq when Satuq converted to Islam the Arslan Khans were also toppled and Balasaghun taken by Satuq with the conversion the Qarakhanid Turk population to Islam following Satuq's accession to power and the spread Islam among the Qarakhanid Turks led to the conquest Transoxiana and the Samanids by the Qarakhanids and the Qarakhanids were the people who bequeathed the Islamic religion to the modern Uyghurs while the modern Uyghurs adopted the modern name their ethnic group from the Uyghur Qocho Kingdom and Uyghur Empire. Syrian Churches have been demolished by Turkistan Islamic Party Uyghur fighters who exalted in the acts destruction and in Homs and Idlib battlefields the Turkistan Islamic Party cooperated with Uzbek brigades and Jabhat al-Nusra Jabhat al-Nusra and IS (ISIL) compete with each other to recruit Uyghur fighters. In the late 19th century it was still being proposed by some people that two separate parts be created out Xinjiang the area north the Tianshan and the area south the Tianshan while it was being argued over whether to turn Xinjiang into a province. Han and Hui intermarry with each other much more than Hui do with Uyghurs despite Hui and Uyghur both being Muslim and according to Uyghurs Hui s with Uyghur frequently break apart and end in divorce. Children who are mixed Han and Uyghur ethnicities are known as erzhuanzi (二转子) and Uyghurs call them piryotki. They are shunned by Uyghurs at social gatherings and events. Exceptions through general opposition to inter could take place in event the Han converting to Islam or the Uyghur and Han partners moving away to another location. Coins with both Chinese and Karoshthi inscriptions have been found in the southern. Filial piety was a central value in traditional Chinese culture Its importance went far beyond that the biblical commandment “honour thy mother and thy father” Filial piety was and still is a value based on strict principles hierarchy obligation and obedience It is no exaggeration to say that it was the very foundation the hierarchical structure the Chinese family and thus the Chinese society as a whole That does not mean that the idea filial piety has not changed over the centuries or that children are always filial But we need first all to understand what xiao means where it comes from and how it was practised in the past before we can examine the exceptions and the changes After the Qing dynasty reconquered this region in 1884 the area was designated Xinjiang which was used to refer to any area a former Chinese empire that had been previously lost but was regained by the Qing but eventually meant this northwestern Xinjiang alone. In the Uyghur language Xinjiang is considered more center than northwestern in orientation. The Qing banned Khoqandi merchants from marrying Kashgari women Due to 'group jealously' disputes broke out due to Chinese and Turki crossing both religious and ethnic differences and engaging and sex Turki locals viewed fellow Turkic Muslim Andijanis also as competitors for their own women A Turki proverb said Do not let a man from Andijan into your house. Turki women were able to inherited the property their Chinese husbands after. Turkish passports were used by Uyghurs who were seeking to contact Mujahidin Indonesia Timur a pro-ISIS organization in Sulawesi in Indonesia. The Turkic Muslims the Turfan and Kumul Oases then submitted to the Qing dynasty China and asked China to free them from the Dzungars The Qing accepted the rulers Turfan and Kumul as Qing vassals The Qing dynasty waged war against the Dzungars for decades until finally defeating them and then Qing Manchu Bannermen carried out the Dzungar genocide nearly wiping them from existence and depopulating Dzungaria The Qing then freed the Afaqi Khoja leader Burhan-ud-din and his brother Khoja Jihan from their imprisonment by the Dzungars and appointed them to rule as Qing vassals over the Tarim Basin The Khoja brothers decided to renege on this deal and declare themselves as independent leaders the Tarim Basin The Qing and the Turfan leader Emin Khoja crushed their revolt and China then took full control both Dzungaria and the Tarim. When your parents are alive comply with the rites in serving them; when they die comply with the rites in burying them; comply with the rites in sacrificing to them (2.5) Give your father and mother no other cause for anxiety than illness (2.6) Nowadays for a man to be filial means no more than that he is able to provide his parents with food Even dogs and horses are in some ways provided with food If a man shows no reverence where is the difference? (2.7) What is difficult to manage is the expression on one’s face In early China besides expressing love or care the presentation food or by extension material support creates obligation If one feeds a man he is obligated to repay your kindness This sense obligation was so strong that it could be used as a means to control others In the same way a child is obligated to repay his parents for the food and care they provided him as a helpless child (Knapp 2013) Yün usually enclosed notes to me in letters from home so one day my father said to me ‘Since your wife can handle brush and ink she can write your mother’s letters for her.’ But sometime later there was some gossip at home and mother suspected Yün writing something improper about it in one her letters After that she did not let Yün take up the brush. Lobbying by the Swedish Christian missionaries led to child for under 15 year old girls to be banned by the Chinese Governor in Urumchi although the Uyghur Muslims ignored the law Uyghur women converts to Christianity did not wear the veil and local Uyghur Muslim women were inspired by the Swedish missionary Christian women to be independent and pursue education instead saying “Look at the Swedes they remain single their whole lives if they want to.” and one man was astonished that Jesus had a conversation with the Samaritan woman. The meaning this tale is clear When faced with the dilemma having to choose between one’s parents and one’s children (or wife for that matter) one always has to choose the parents This is the hierarchical principle the superiority the elder over the younger It is the duty children to take care their parents at all costs even if that means sacrificing one’s own children Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri released a statement supporting Jihad in Xinjiang against Chinese in the Caucasus against the Russians and naming Somalia Yemen Syria Iraq and Afghanistan as places warfare. Zawahiri endorsed "jihad to liberate every span land the Muslims that has been usurped and violated from Kashgar to Andalusia and from the Caucasus to Somalia and Central Africa". Uyghurs inhabit Kashgar the city which was mentioned by Zawahiri. The first wife is a good woman the second a witch and the third a prostitute (birgä täkkän yaxši ikkigä täkkän baxši üčkä täkkän paxši.) A family with many women will be miserable (Qizi barniñ därdi bar.) Let your daughter marry or you will die regret instead illness (Qiziñ Öyde ärsiz uzaq turmiğay ölärsän puşaymanda sän ağirmay.) Woman: long hair short wit (Xotun xäqniñ çaçi uzun ä qli qisqa.) A woman without a husband is like a horse without a halter (Ärsiz xotun yugänsiz baytal.) Men rely on life a wife relies on her husband (Är jeni bilän xişri. Different ethnic groups had different attitudes toward prostitution George W Hunter (missionary) noted that Turki Muslims (Uyghurs) would prostitute their daughters while such a thing would never happen among Tungan Muslims (Chinese Muslims) which was why Turki prostitutes were common around the country. During the Kumul Rebellion in Xinjiang in the 1930s Buddhist murals were deliberately vandalized by Muslims. The Liao Chinese traditions and the Qara Khitai's clinging helped the Qara Khitai avoid Islamization and conversion to Islam the Qara Khitai used Chinese and Inner Asian features in their administrative system. Muslim writers wrote that "Tamghājī silver coins" (sawmhā-yi ṭamghājī) were present in Balkh while tafghājī was used by the writer Ḥabībī the Qarakhānid leader Böri Tigin (Ibrāhīm Tamghāj Khān) was possibly the one who minted. Different ethnic groups had different attitudes toward prostitution George W Hunter (missionary) noted that while Tungan Muslims (Chinese Muslims) would almost never prostitute their daughters Turki Muslims (Uyghurs) would prostitute their daughters which was why Turki prostitutes were common around the country. Turkic Muslims in different areas Xinjiang held derogatory views each other such as claiming that Chinese men were welcomed by the loose Yamçi girls. Inter and patronage prostitutes were among the forms interaction between the Turki in Xinjiang and visiting Chinese merchants. Le Coq reported that in his time sometimes Turkis distrusted Tungans (Hui Muslims) more than Han Chinese so that a Tungan would never be given a Turki woman in by her father while a (Han) Chinese men could be given a Turki woman in by her father. In Kashgar in 1933 the Chinese kept concubines and spouses who were Turkic women.

In 1980 the liberal reformist Hu Yaobang announced the expulsion ethnic Han cadres in Xinjiang to eastern China Hu was purged in 1987 for a series demonstrations that he is said to have provoked in other areas China The prominent Xinjiang and national ficial Wang Zhen criticized Hu for destroying Xinjiang Han cadres' "sense security" and for exacerbating ethnic tensions. After Xinjiang was converted into a province by the Qing the provincialisation and reconstruction programs initiated by the Qing resulted in the Chinese government helping Uyghurs migrate from southern Xinjiang to other areas the province like the area between Qitai and the capital which was formerly nearly completely inhabited by Han Chinese and other areas like Urumqi Tacheng (Tabarghatai) Yili Jinghe Kur Kara Usu Ruoqiang Lop Nor and the Tarim River's lower reaches. It was during Qing times that Uyghurs were settled throughout all Xinjiang from their original home cities in the western. From the 1950s to 1970s 92% migrants to Xinjiang were Han and 8% were Hui Most these migrants were unorganized settlers - "as [they are still] now" coming from neighboring Gansu province to seek trading opportunities. Mixed Han-Uyghur partners are pressured to leave their parents and sometimes leave Xinjiang entirely from 1911-1949 when the ruled China Han Chinese Generals in the military were sought after and wooed by Uyghur women due to their poverty but in 1949 when the Communists took over the Uyghur population branded them as milliy munapiq (ethnic scum) and threatened and coerced them into accompanying their Han partners in moving to Taiwan Uyghur parents warn not to return to Xinjiang their female and male children if they married Han after moving to "China proper" for attending educational institutions so they can avoid ostracism and condemnation from their fellow Uyghurs a case where a Han male dating Uyghur woman told Dr Smith Finley about a relationship between a Han man and her elder sister resulted in the Uyghur community condemning and pressuring her mother. Modern genetic analysis suggests that aboriginal inhabitants had a high proportion DNA European origin. As part an effort to reach out to foreign Muslims on the Ink Swords (Medad al-Sayouf) Network an Arabic language magazine titled "Islamic Turkistan" (Turkistan al-Islamia) was issued by ETIM in January 2009 and it described ETIM as "a group workers for Islam and the mujahideen in the Cause Allah in order to liberate Turkistan" and said that the aim ETIM was to "establish an Islamic Caliphate in the light the Book and the Sunnah" "in the Cause Allah promotion virtue prevention vice and the call to Allah." to create an Islamic State by. Without doubt the pillar the Chinese family structure was the concept filial piety In Chinese filial piety is expressed by the character 孝(pinyin: xiào) The character xiao is made up an upper and a lower part The first part is derived from the character lao (老 pinyin: lǎo) which means ‘old’ The second part is the character 子 (pinyin: zi) which means ‘son’ There are different interpretations the meaning the character xiao: 1) the old are supported by the younger generation; 2) the young are burdened and oppressed by. According to Sir Percy Molesworth Sykes in 1920 The population Chinese Turkestan is estimated at about one million and a half It is almost entirely confined to the oases chief which are Kashgar with 300,000 Yangi Shahr with 200,000 Yarkand with 200,000 and Aksu and Khotan each with 190,000 inhabitants The population may also be grouped into two main classes as " settled " and " nomadic," with a small semi-nomadic division The nomads together with the semi-nomads do not aggregate more than 125,000 in all  There were around 2,900,173 Uyghurs.

In the spring 1792 I was living at Chenchou […] At that time my younger brother Chi-tang was working under my father While there I received a letter from Yün saying ‘Your younger brother Chi-tang once borrowed money from a lady neighbour and asked me to be the guarantor Now she is anxious to have the money back.’ I asked Chi-tang about it but he only said that Yün was meddling in his affairs I merely replied at the end a letter ‘Father and I are both ill and we have no money to repay the loan Wait until younger brother returns home and let him take care it himself.’ Uyghur is the dominant language in southern Xinjiang while Mandarin is the dominant language in northern Xinjiang. Turkic Empires after the Tang gained prestige by connecting themselves with north Chinese states with the Qara-Khitay and Qara-Khanid khans using the title "Chinese emperor" Khitay was used by the Qara-Khitay and Tabghach was used by the Qarakhanids. The entry into the previously Indo-European Soghdian and Tokharian speaking Central Eurasia and Xinjiang tribes Turkic speaking origin and the started Turkicisation originate in the 7th century with the disintegration the Turkic Khaganate resulting in Eurasia being populated by many peoples who consider themselves Turks. When my wife and I were living at home we could not avoid pawning our belongings if we had unforeseen expenses; at first we somehow found ways to make ends meet but later we were always in need […] First our circumstances aroused talk amongst local gossips and later scorn from our family The ancients were right: ‘Lack talent in a woman is a virtue.’ [according to Shen Fu his wife was too talented and therefore unsuitable to be. Some Uyghur scholars claim modern Uyghurs descent from both the Turkic Uyghurs and the pre-Turkic Tocharians (Yuezhi) and relatively fair hair and eyes as well as other so-called 'Caucasoid' physical traits are not uncommon among Uyghurs Genetic analyses suggest West Eurasian ("Caucasoid") maternal contribution to Uyghurs is 42.6% and the paternal between 43.9% and 61.2% The estimation European component in modern Uyghur population ranged from.
The Buryat Mongol Agvan Dorzhiev tried advocating for Oirat Mongol areas like Tarbagatai Ili and Altai to get added to the Outer Mongolian state. Out concern that China would be provoked this proposed addition the Oirat Dzungaria to the new Outer Mongolian state was rejected by the Soviets. Swedish Christian missionary J E Lundahl wrote in 1917 that the local Muslim women in Xinjiang married Chinese men because a lack Chinese women the relatives the woman and other Muslims reviled the women for. The Tang Chinese reign over Qocho and Turfan and the Buddhist religion left a lasting legacy upon the Buddhist Uyghur Kingdom Qocho with the Tang presented names remaining on the more than 50 Buddhist temples with Emperor Tang Taizong's edicts stored in the "Imperial Writings Tower " and Chinese dictionaries like Jingyun Yuian Tang yun and da zang jing (Buddhist scriptures) stored inside the Buddhist temples and Persian monks also maintained a Manichaean temple in the Kingdom the Persian Hudud al-'Alam uses the name "Chinese town" to called Qocho the capital the Uyghur kingdom. Another consequence this understanding love and care is that responsibility is mainly regarded as ‘providing’ for someone rather than as caring about each other’s feelings For example in traditional Chinese society a man could have more wives regardless whether wives were jealous But as long as he provided for them he was considered a responsible husband Nowadays there are many cases husbands who have mistresses or children who barely talk with their parents But as long as husbands provide for their wives and children provide for their parents they are considered responsible It is very important to understand this point because when Chinese or Taiwanese talk about responsibility their understanding responsibility may differ from that in. Although currently Uyghurs have an extremely low inter overall Dr Joanne Smith Finley wrote that there is tiny rise in s between Han men and Uyghur women and out all ethnic groups ahead Hui and Kazakhs Han are the ethnic group with whom Uyghurs marry with the most within their total small rate inter and Uyghur females married out more than Uyghur males at to 0.2% with Uyghur males being the least likely people to intermarry in Xinjiang. Multiple studies and interviews found that the current prevalent form inter between Han and Uyghur is Han men being taken as husbands by Uyghur women. Following insurgencies against Governor Jin Shuren in the early 1930s a rebellion in Kashgar led to the establishment the short-lived First East Turkistan Republic (First ETR) in 1933 The ETR claimed authority around the Tarim Basin from Aksu in the north to Khotan in the south and was suppressed by the armies the Chinese Muslim warlord Ma Zhongying. Interracial dating is prevalent among Han people and "Chinese Uighur" (assimilated Uyghurs who speak Mandarin) one government employee Uyghur man interviewed by Pressor Kaltman said he does not anticipate a Han marrying his daughter but he would not object to it if she wanted to Pressor Kaltman interviewed an additional Uyghur man who said he would not allow a Han woman to date his son because his descendants would not be raised as Uyghur, but he would approve his son marrying Kazakh or Russian girls. The Qara Khitai used the "image China" to legitimize their ruler to the Central Asian Muslims since China had a good reputation at the time among Central Asian Muslims before the Mongol invasions it was viewed as extremely civilized known for its unique script its expert artisans were well known justice and religious tolerance were among the virtues attributed to Chinese despite their idol worship and the Turk Arab Byzantium Indian rulers and the Chinese emperor were known as the world's "five great kings" the memory Tang China was engraved into the Muslim perception so their continued to view China through the lens the Tang dynasty and anachronisms appeared in Muslim writings due to this even after the end the Tang China was known as chīn (چين) in Persian and as ṣīn (صين) in Arabic while the Tang dynasty capital Changan was known as Ḥumdān (حمدان). Feeding Obeying Sacrificing – The Ethics Filial Piety The concept underlying the principle filial piety is simple Parents gave life to children gave them food and clothes an education etc For all the things that children received from parents children have an eternal obligation towards them They have a debt towards their parents a debt that can never be fully repaid The only thing that children can do in order to repay at least a small part this debt is to take care their parents in their old age to make them proud and happy to obey and. He procured me a Chinese interpreter Fong Shi a pleasant and agreeable young Chinaman who wrote his mother-tongue with ease and spoke Jagatai Turki fluently and—did not smoke opium He left his wife and child behind him in Khotan Liu Darin making himself answerable for their maintenance But I also paid Fong Shi three months' salary in advance and that money he gave to his wife Whenever I could find leisure he was to give me lessons in Chinese and we began at once even before we left Khotan. Pressor James A Millward described the original Uyghurs as physically Mongoloid giving as an example the images in Bezeklik at temple 9 the Uyghur patrons until they began to mix with the Tarim Basin's original eastern Iranian inhabitants. In 2009 the remains individuals found at the Xiaohe Tomb complex were analyzed for Y-DNA and mtDNA markers The study found that while Y-DNA corresponded to West Eurasian populations the mtDNA haplotypes were an admixture East Asian and European origin. The geographic location where this admixing took place is suggested to be somewhere in Southern Siberia before these people moved into the Tarim Basin Xiaohe is the oldest archaeological site yielding human remains discovered in the Tarim Basin. The Qarakhanid ruler Kashgar was called Tamghaj Khan while the Khitan ruler was called the Khan Chīn some Khitans migrated into western areas like the Qarakhanid state even before the establishment the Kara-Khitan state. During the Liao dynasty Han Chinese lived in Kedun situated in present-day Mongolia. We can see here that the father becomes filial because he thinks what will happen to himself when he is old If he abandoned his father he would break the hierarchical structure the family which he will be a beneficiary in his old age In the second part this post I will be examining the concepts hierarchy and obedience and I will try to explain why filial piety and the hierarchical family structure have been so resilient and have secured the continuity Chinese culture and society throughout the centuries I think that many Westerners ten fail to understand how extreme at least by Western standards the concept filial piety was in traditional Chinese society In order to show this point I will quote here two ancient Chinese stories that illustrate the ethics filiality From 1949 to 2001 education has expanded greatly in the region with 6,221 primary schools up from 1,335; 1,929 middle schools up from 9 and institutions higher learning at 21 up from 1 The illiteracy rate for young and middle-age people has decreased to less than 2% Agricultural science has made inroads into the region as well as innovative methods road construction in the desert. The claims these "Uyghur nationalist historians" which the majority Uyghurs believe in are not backed up by actual evidence. The belief that they were native to the Tarim Basin is held by most Uyghurs. Qurban Wäli is another ultra-nationalist Uyghur who engaged in historical revisionism and claimed Uyghur civilization is 6,000 years old and native to Xinjiang. Islam Awazi released photos a Turkistan Islamic Party training camp. Images Uyghur Turkistan Islamic Party fighters in Syria were released by Islam Awazi.

In 779 Tengri Bögü incited by sogdian traders living in Ordu Baliq planned an invasion China to take advantage the accession a new emperor Tengri Bögü's uncle Tun Bagha Tarkhan opposed this plan fearing it would result in Uyghur complete assimilation into Han-Chinese culture In 840 the Kyrgyz tribe invaded from the north with a force around 80,000 horsemen They sacked the Uyghur capital at Ordu Baliq razing it to the ground The Kyrgyz captured the Uyghur Khagan Kürebir (Hesa) and promptly beheaded him The Kyrgyz went on to destroy other Uyghur cities throughout their empire burning them to the ground The last legitimate khagan Öge was assassinated in 847 having spent his 6-year reign in fighting the Kyrgyz and the supporters his rival Ormïzt a brother Kürebir The Kyrgyz invasion destroyed the Uyghur Empire causing a diaspora Uyghur people across Central Asia. Valikhanov claimed that foreigners children in Turkistan were referred to by the name çalğurt Turki women were bashed as being negative character by a Kashgari Turki woman's Tibetan husband- racist views each other's ethnicities between partners in interethnic s still persisted sometimes It was mostly Turki women marrying foreign men with a few cases the opposite occurring in this era.t Some Uyghur ultra-nationalist revisionists worried at the prospect that they are descendants migrants into Xinjiang and could be seen as invaders and not the indigenous inhabitants have sought to revise history like Turghun Almas in his book Uyghurlar claiming that Turkic Uyghurs were always natives Xinjiang claiming that the Tocharian Tarim mummies were Uyghurs claiming Uyghurs invented gunpowder paper compass printing and that Uyghur civilization is 6,000 years old and is the origin all world civilization. Filial piety in the past did not refer only to serving your parents when alive and mourning after death The important thing is to make a name for your parents Serving when alive and mourning after death are certainly filial acts However if a son can study and establish himself transfer filial piety to loyalty and win great renown so that people can trace his virtue to his parents and say “how lucky to have a son like this,” this is called making a name for your parents and the greatness filial There are five human relationships the sovereign and parents are the most important Those who are filial to their parents will also be loyal to their ruler Serving his parents with filial piety thus his loyalty can be transferred to his sovereign (ibid.

Jean Bowie Shor wrote that there were 3,000,000 Uigurs and gave 3,500,000 as the total amount residents in Xinjiang. In the 1980s there was a scattering student demonstrations and riots against police action that took on an ethnic aspect; and the Baren Township riot in April 1990 an abortive uprising resulted in more than 50 deaths. In Urumqi (Uyghur) Muslim women who married Han Chinese men were assaulted by hordes (Uyghur) Muslims on 11 July 1947 and the women were seized and kidnapped by the hordes Old (Uyghur) Muslim men forcibly married the women In response to the chaos a curfew was placed at 11 p.m. The s between Muslim (Uyghur) women and Han Chinese men infuriated the Uyghur leader Isa Yusuf Alptekin.

Camps training children for Jihad are being run by the Turkistan Islamic Party in Syria. Photos the child military training camps in Syria were released by the Turkistan Islamic Party who labelled the children as "little mujahideen". Uyghur nationalist historian Turghun Almas and his book Uyghurlar (The Uyghurs) and Uyghur nationalist accounts history were galvanized by Soviet stances on history "firmly grounded" in Soviet Turcological works and both heavily influenced and partially created by Soviet historians and Soviet works on Turkic peoples.
