China detains Uighurs for growing beards or visiting foreign websites, leak reveals

Database known as the ‘Karakax list’ shows people sent to internment camps for reasons such as ‘minor religious infection’

Officials used these categories to determine how suspicious a person was, even if they had not committed any crimes.The most recent date in the document is March 2019. The detainees listed come from Karakax County, a traditional settlement of about 650,000 people where more than 97% of the population are Uighur. The list was corroborated through interviews with former Karakax residents, Chinese identity verification tools, and other lists and documents seen by the Associated Press.

The database also emphasises that the Chinese government focused on religion as a reason for detention — not just political extremism, as authorities claim, but ordinary activities such as praying, attending a mosque, or even growing a long beard. It also shows the role of family: People with detained relatives were far more likely to end up in a camp themselves, uprooting and criminalising entire families.

The leak of the database follows the release in November of a classified blueprint on how the mass detention system really works. The blueprint obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, showed that the centres were in fact forced ideological and behavioural re-education camps run in secret. Another set of documents leaked to the New York Times revealed the historical lead-up to the mass detention.

The Xinjiang regional government did not respond to faxes sent by AP requesting comment on the latest database leak. Asked whether Xinjiang was targeting religious people and their families, foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said “this kind of nonsense is not worth commenting on”.
