A disagreement between major Indonesian religious leaders and the 
government on how to respond to China’s crackdown on Turkic Muslims 
raises questions about the Islamic World’s ability to sustain its 
silence about what amounts to one of the most concerted assaults on the 
faith in recent history.

Rejecting a call on the government by the Indonesian Ulema Council, the 
country’s top clerical body, to condemn the crackdown that has seen up 
to one million Turkic Muslims detained in re-education camps in China’s 
north-western province of Xinjiang, Indonesian vice-president Jusuf 
Kalla insisted that the government would not interfere in the internal 
affairs of others.
