In order to completely assimilate East Turkestan into China, millions of Chinese are being settled in this country.
Before 1949 there were only 300,000 Chinese in East Turkestan. According to the Chinese statistics now it is 7 million. Observers, however, believe that this figure is much higher.
Almost 250,000 Chinese are being settled in East Turkestan every year and contrary to “one child” policy in existence across mainland China, Chinese settlers in East Turkestan are allowed to have more children. At the same time, coercive birth control is being carried out among the Uyghur women to restrain the growth of Uyghur population.
