The following religious leaders are utterly silent on China’s genocidal persecution of Tibetans in occupied Tibet and Uyghurs in occupied east Turkistan (so-called Xinjiang region)
Grand Imam of al-Azhar
Regarded by some as the highest authority in Sunni Islamic thinking, the present incumbent, Ahmad al-Tayyeb has offered no words of concern or opposition on China’s genocidal assault against his Uyghur Muslim brothers and sisters.
Primate Of The Russian Orthodox Church
Mr Vladimir Mikhailovich Gundyayev like his political colleagues within the Kremlin is completely silent on the odious excesses of the Chinese regime and has not spoken a word of concern on the terrorism being inflicted upon the Uyghurs.
His church cut a secret deal with the Chinese regime in a what has proved to be a failed effort to protect Catholics in China. That arrangement required from the Vatican silence on issues such as the plight of Tibetans and Uyghurs.
Chief Rabbinate Council Of Israel
This body, headed by the Rabbis of various Jewish schools, has neither condemned or opposed the brutal tyranny waged against the Uyghur people.
Archbishop Of Canterbury
The Church Of England is deeply enmeshed within the British political establishment. The current office-holder Justin Welby has like his Catholic colleague, remained tight-lipped on the persecution of Uyghurs.
Moderator Of The Church Of Scotland
Martin Fair, like his predecessors refuses to comment on China’s vicious oppression of the Uyghurs, or indeed offer any concern on the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh offering a fellowship to Professor Jiang Hiefu. An individual with close links to China’s forced-organ removal atrocities.
There’s numerous reasons for the ghastly silence of these supposedly compassionate and spiritual figures, in essence though their refusal to speak out against China is a result of political and economic forces. Be that a shared political ideology with China’s regime, trade considerations; or in the case of the Vatican naive and misguided collaboration, the result is complicity.

All religions should have a common goal – love and compassion
Their silence is their complicity
It surely is!
