What is China’s Pair Up and Become Family program?

A truly shameful example of dishonorableness is being exercised against Uighur women ; Chinese male officials assigned to surveillance/monitoring duty as part of the “Pair Up and Become Family program”, force Uighur women whose husbands are detained to share their beds with them.

Currently more than 1 million Uighurs are detained at detention camps.

As an unprecedented practice of human rights violation, the Pair Up and Become Family program has put the Chinese government in the center of harsh criticism, with thousands of human rights groups denouncing the undignified enforcement by the Chinese government.

Despite clearly violating basic human rights such as assimilation, the Chinese government keeps ignoring international calls for halting the program.
