Almaz Nizamidin, an Australian Uyghur Muslim, last saw his wife in March 2017 when he went returned to China to visit.
A month later she was arrested and sent to a concentration camp. She was 2 months pregnant.
Uyghurs are a Muslim minority who mainly live in the Chinese province of Xinjiang, or East Turkestan.
They are facing widespread discrimination and oppression for their faith.
According to a UN Human Rights committee, up to 2 million Uyghurs have now been detained in concentration camps, also known as ‘re-education camps’
In these camps, detainees are forced to denounce their religion, chant propaganda slogans, and are deprived of food and sleep, according to an escaped detainee Omir Bekali.
Nizamidin’s wife, who was 2 months pregnant at the time, was sentenced to 7 years in one of these camps.
He does not know where she is, or what has happened to their child.
His petition, which expires on Wednesday, calls on Parliament to find out what is going on.
Another petition has been organised to bring awareness to the concentration camps.
May Allah protect our Uyghur brothers and sisters
