The Xinjiang’s crisis is a result of growing discontent amongst Uighur people that was fuelled by China’s domestic policy in the region. Many of the Uighurs has grievances that are driven by ethnic, religious and cultural factors. They can’t keep names of their children based on their Muslim religion. The logic behind it, they may become hard religious. Intentionally the population of Uyghur is being decreased by government. Interesting thing is that Muslim countries like Pakistan, Turkey do not take any action as they are tied up with economic relations. The intention of China is not against Muslim. The government wants peace in that province and people should comply with chinese government. The development, from the 1950, of mineral resources and the opening of the region for cotton production, brought an influx of ethnic Chinese which dramatically altered the province’s ethnic balance. In 1949, Xinjiang had 3.2 millions Uighurs population and only 140,000 Han Chinese. Now, of the total population from the region, 40 per cent are Han, and only 47% are Uighur. Uighurs fear they might soon be significantly out numbered from their own region. In an attempt to close the difference of gap in income and wealth terms between the rapidly growing eastern coastal provinces and the western China in 1999 Chinese former President Jiang Zemin launched the Western Development campaign, It is popularly known as “Go West!”. Jiang’s plan at that time focused on massive infrastructure investment in Xinjiang, Tibet, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Regions, Qinghai, Gansu, Sichuan, Yunnan, Shaanxi, Guizhou provinces and Chonqing municipality which total 56% of China’s land area and 23% of Chinese population. The results in Xinjiang province of the campaign show an impressive record of achievement on the part of the China’s Authorities. Read also Top 10 George Washington’s Quotes
