Chinese government sentences famed Uyghur scholar to life in prison, foundation says

  • Professor Rahile Dawut, a prominent Uyghur scholar specializing in folklore and traditions, has been sentenced to life in prison, making her one of over 400 academics, writers, performers, and artists detained in Xinjiang. This sentencing is seen as a tragic loss for the Uyghur people and academic freedom.
  • Dawut's disappearance in 2017 came during a government crackdown targeting the Uyghur community, and critics argue that intellectuals have been specifically targeted to erase Uyghur culture and identity. This crackdown has resulted in the arrest of most prominent Uyghur intellectuals.
  • International human rights organization Dui Hua has confirmed that Dawut's life imprisonment is part of a growing list of Uyghur intellectuals who have been detained, arrested, and imprisoned since 2016. This alarming news has shocked academics studying Uyghur culture.
