    'Some are just psychopaths': Chinese detective in exile reveals extent of torture against Uyghurs
    https://edition.cnn.com/2021/10/04/c...dst/index.html

    The methods included shackling people to a metal or wooden "tiger chair" -- chairs designed to immobilize suspects -- hanging people from the ceiling, sexual violence, electrocutions, and waterboarding. Inmates were often forced to stay awake for days, and denied food and water, he said.

    "Everyone uses different methods. Some even use a wrecking bar, or iron chains with locks," Jiang said. "Police would step on the suspect's face and tell him to confess."

    The suspects were accused of terror offenses, said Jiang, but he believes that "none" of the hundreds of prisoners he was involved in arresting had committed a crime. "They are ordinary people," he said.

    Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and study centers must begin to translate classroom texts from Tibetan into Mandarin Chinese, China’s “common language,” according to instructions given at a conference last month in Qinghai, Tibetan sources said.

    China Pushes New Plan For Tibetan Buddhist Study in Chinese Only

    Monks and nuns must also speak to each other in Chinese instead of their native language, government authorities say.

    Why, it's a party-state policy of course.
    Good summary of Beijing's pivot in ethnic policy. Ditching 1950s Soviet-style approach in favor of aggressive (and coercive) assimilation.
    Dates back at least to Xi Jinping's 2014 speech 要在各族群众中牢固树立正确的祖国

    So who cares if these things resolutely happen or are planned for so-called "minorities" elsewhere in the Han empire...

    If "no petting fish!" doesn't inspire the subjectdom enough, next it'll be an absolute NO to resolutely "wrangling the snake!"

    (I'm quite certain that the local CCP enforcers have a healthy sense of humour... How else could they maintain their so-called sanity?)

    I bet they’re trying to find some old Nazi to teach them on “final solutions”.

    The tone gets really bad, hard to backtrack from such kind of words.
