Hybrid cultivation of anti-China narratives in Muslim World

Western media, which is being followed throughout the world is the best platform to be used to carry out such propaganda. Important to note is the fact that the domestic media of the developing world relies upon the western international media to highlight the international stories. Moreover, to follow the international trends on news, the domestic media of the developing world follows the western media.

Should it not be perceived as controversial that since recently it has been observed that the big names of the western media, especially the Muslim journalists and analysts have been showing a sudden tendency of highlighting the Uighur issue of Xinjiang province, especially through pro western lenses. The exaggeration of the matter suggests that the media personalities are tasked with maligning China in the Muslim world. The purpose of this smear campaign is to disrupt the relations of China with the Muslim world. Moreover, if fake narratives are successfully infiltrated into the 1.6 billion Muslims of the world, it would be easier to disrupt China’s trade into the Muslim majority countries. It is largely considered that the western world has carefully invested into the narrative building against China.

The West has a history full of building the fake narratives to influence the policies of the world. The narratives against China are being built through similar but more advanced and enhanced methods. The use of technology, social and digital media has been observed in the recent past but in more recent events, the most updated tech is being used to concoct video and audio evidences to prove the propaganda that China is conducting a genocide of Muslims. Interestingly, the scandals of the past such as Cambridge Analytica are an excellent examples to prove that the western world could go to any limits. In Cambridge Analytica Scandal, it is a known fact that the fake Mujahideen and Al Qaida statements and video footages were created to constantly terrorise the world to legitimise the war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq. Moreover, the concocted video and audio evidences were produced to propagate the Iraq invasion and legitimise the British involvement in Iraq.

Western media, which is being followed throughout the world is the best platform to be used to carry out such propaganda. Important to note is the fact that the domestic media of the developing world relies upon the western international media to highlight the international stories.

It is a known fact that America, along with its western allies is actively involved in a trade war against China. The western world fears that as the world is moving from geo-strategic positioning to the geo-economic, China will grab on maximum influence over the world through its ever increasing economic strength. United States, which is considered as the super power of the world, can sense that if China’s economic growth is not hurdled, it isn’t far that it shall become an equal to superpower, if not the superpower of the world. Currently, US is practically engaging China on every aspect. Even in the pandemic, US has influenced its allies to prefer western vaccines over the Chinese and Russian. The travel restrictions to several European, American and Gulf destinations for those vaccinated with The Sinovac is a policy that is influenced by US-China trade war. Premier example of such influence is of Saudi Arabia allowing only those pilgrims to enter and perform Hajj, who have been vaccinated with the western vaccines. Though every country is allowed to make their own choices on vaccines but putting in place the mandatory policies is a clear indication that the western powers are willing to hit China in every way possible.

Time is not far when US would utilise this fake narrative of ‘Uighur plight’ against China. It shall not only get China declared as an Islamophob state but it might fund various hybrid campaigns to destroy the Chinese economy. Muslim world is known for religious campaigns of boycotting the products of a country that is declared or portrayed as anti-Islam. So if US is successful in the current smear propagation of China. The clergy would do the rest with monetary support of the West. One fine Friday, we might hear the sermons that as buying Made in Israel is ‘haram’, Made in China is an equal sin too. Forgetting the fact that they are benefitting the same US that indiscriminately bombed Afghanistan & Iraq and killed thousands of Muslims. I am afraid, the great American plan to win the US-China Trade war is not to improve its trade and beat China, but to employ sleazy tactics to convince the majority of the world not to buy the ‘Made in China’.
