As a loyal and constant listener of RFA Uyghur Service, I am deeply disappointed and shocked to know that Mr. Omar Kanat, well-known, beloved and only war-time Uyghur Journalist in RFA Uyghur service is being dismissed from his work with obscure reasons.

It might be easy decision for RFA to take, but it is not going to be that easy for Uyghur listeners both at home and abroad to digest and accept for many reasons.

Omar Kanat's dismissal from RFA Uyghur Service now has lead to another debate among Uyghur community around the world.

As we all know very well that Omar Kanat was unique source of unbiased and accurate information for the Uyghurs in East Turkistan during US lead coalition war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Mr. Omar Kanat has alone reported from war zone during that time and provided different outlook about this war for the Uyghurs in compare to official Chinese line of propaganda which was deceptive and contradictory to US stand.

He was a main contributor for the current level development of Uyghur Service in RFA.
also He was good at taking the pulse of Uyghur activists and and Uyghurs organizations around the world all the time by being together with them as much as he can, following their moves and agendas in order to send accurate information to Uyghur listeners in East Turkistan and updating them with every move of Uyghur organizations.

you can not be good journalist by just sitting at you desk for 8 hours.

Every Uyghur listener wants to know what is their leading organization and leaders planning to do, what is their short term and long term strategies, where do they stand on certain issues etc on daily basis

Mr. Omar Kanat was unique in that regard. His great reputation convinced the most wanted man to have interview with him. Mr. Omar Kanat's interview with alleged leader of Turkistan Islamic Party, Mr. Hasam Maksum has provided first and only clue to outside world on what this man look like, where was he standing at and who was he?
apparently that interview has become first and last interview with that person as he killed shortly

Omar Kanat's dismissal from RFA is in fact great lost for RFA itself, not alone for Omar Kanat.

Uyghur Reporters in RFA are far lazier than any other reporters in different services under RFA brand in terms of domestic and international involvements, participation and associations among communities mainly because exerted Chinese pressure on them, on their family members back home and on to their extensions has been much tougher and stronger. in addition, Uyghur reporter's communication ability and very poor language skills also limit their size of involvements .

Omar Kanat was uniquely positioned journalist in Uyghur service who possessed all the quality for being a good journalist including communication skills ( fluent at least 4 languages), experiences ( more than 17 years of broadcasting experiences) other and skills.

ongoing debates among Uyghurs on this matter shows that Uyghurs won't let it go this time

The ' Uyghurs voice' are saying that "You made a biggest mistake by dissmissing OMAR KANAT and aiding Chinese authority's wish, if the RAF Uyghur service truely want to be the 'voice of the supressed Uyghur people' then keep and respect the journalist that the Uyghurs wanted! otherwise the RFA also is nothing more than the 'Chinese central TV station/Zhongyang tai, People's daily or Central people's radio station/Zhongyang rinmin guangbo tai or Zhongyang tai'....

Omar Qanat has been the heart and soul of the RFA Uyghur Service for 10 years. He was the only real journalist and only qualified person in RFA. We are all aware of his service, dedication and hardwork. Now in this difficult time of his, every Uyghur, whether he has personal problems with or not, should support Omar Qanat. Support for Omar is a duty for all Uyghurs around the world.

I , whole heatedly, support Memet's opinion. If RFA want to spread democracy and want to be the voice of Uyghur people, it is wrong to fire Omer Qanat. It is impossible and unrealistic to believe peole like Mr.Jume could provide fair balanced news about Uyghur people.

Even he has mistakes, firing him without warning is too much. if RFA care for news quality, they should rehire Mr.Qanat with preconditions.

Dear Sir/ Madam,
Attached is the letter of Uyghur refugees in Turkey with nearly 300
signatures about Omer Kanat and his dismissal from RFA Uyghur Service"

The news about Omer Kanat's case broke out on Monday in Turkey and caused a
huge shock among Uyghur community . The discussion boards
filled with messages of disappointment and protest. We are extremely upset
about this decision. Omer Kanat has been the best and the most important
reporter in Uyghur community and has covered the most important stories for
a long time. His network, experience and skills has made him the most
trusted reporter in this service. He is the only journalist who broadcasted
from Iraq and Afghanistan and and let Uyghur community to hear these stories
in Uyghur language for the first time in its history. His interviews with
Hasan Mahsum, Xerali and other refugees in Turkey were widely covered both
in Turkish, Central Asian and European media. This decision of RFA not only
caused huge disappointment but also in the long run will result with loss of
credibility, source as well as audience for RFA Uyghur Service. The members
of the Uyghur community in Turkey and Uyghur refugees in Central Asia will
respectfully ask RFA management to reconsider its decision one more time.

Nothing wrong in this statement.
It is absolutely true that, in compare to other reporters working in different services of RFA brand such as Tibetan, Burmese an Chinese, Uyghur reporters are far lazier than them by any merits such as taking part of local events, participating community affairs or conferences, publishing research papers, presenting the views on domestic and International arena on Uyghurs etc. can you dispute that? I don't think so. facts can only be respected.

reason for this is as follows:

A: There is exaggerated fear of Chinese retaliation for their political or non-political involvements as it is well known factor of Chinese pressure on the family members of the activists, even though it is not quite applicable criteria for Uyghur reports by far.
why it does not apply?
look at how many of them have successfully invited their family members to USA.


B: Uyghur reporter's communication skills, language skills and willingness of promoting their knowledge on the situation of Uyghurs on various stages are poor, very poor in compare to other journalists working in different ethnic sections.

I know number of Tibetan, Burmese and Chinese reporters running after conference here and there with activist name card even though they are full time reporters of RFA.

Omar Kanat does not have any position in UAA or WUC. It is well known fact.
He has very close communication with the people and organizations around the world which he had built over the time. this is in fact his advantage and another factor that made him more successful than other reporters.

I know there are couple excellent reporters in RFA Uyghur services who must be excluded from generalization, too.

I am happy that people are standing up on this matter. My philosophy is that if you cannot be just and fair to your fellow Uyghurs, it would be a ridiculous joke to demand justice from the Chinese. How can you expect a hostile people, the Chinese, to deliver justice to Uyghurs if Uyghurs cannot do it to each other?

Re: Dismissal of Omar Kanat from Radio Free Asia



Dear Ms. Liu:



Since the news broke out about Mr. Omer Kanat's dismissal from Radio Free Asia ("RFA") Uyghur Service, there have been calls, messages and e-mails exchanges among the Uyghurs all around the world. The messages include sadness, disbelief, and of course disappointment with the RFA's decision. Mr. Kanat has been the most prominent and the most trusted journalist among Uyghurs. With experience, unique skills, hard work, dedication and an extensive network he had created over the years, he had become the heart and soul of the RFA Uyghur Service for the listeners. His name and voice has become the symbol for independent news for a lot of Uyghurs.



Mr. Kanat has been the first person to call for those who want to share valuable information with the public, including Uyghur refugees who just escaped from the Chinese suppression and former political prisoners who were just released from Chinese dungeons. He was the only person in Uyghur service that serves original reporting. His interviews with Hasan Mahsum, a China's most wanted man, who died shortly after, with Mehmet Emin Hezret, also China's most wanted, Shirali, a political prisoner who was tortured and then executed, with the family of Ismayil Semed, who was executed, as well as his stories about the Tibetan government in exile in India and Uyghur refugees around the world have been the most important and interesting stories for the Uyghur communities worldwide. He revealed the torture and mistreatment of the Uyghur political prisoners with his engagement and perseverance. After each of these stories, Uyghur community expressed their gratitude and appreciation for Mr. Kanat in several ways including to writing on various internet message boards.



Additionally, Mr. Kanat's reporting from Iraq and Afghanistan wars were the first reporting from war-zone in Uyghur language which excited Uyghur listeners around the world in a great extent. At the same time, his reporting from the ground offered non-bias information to the contrast of Chinese official propaganda. He has always been a brave journalist and a dedicated professional. His knowledge of international affairs, strong communication skills, research methods, and multilingual language skills make him one of the well-known intellectuals of the Uyghur community.



Mr Kanat has also been the most trusted journalist and the best researcher within the RFA Uyghur service. Through his extensive network of scholars, leaders, and activists around the world, Mr. Kanat has provided accurate, timely and independent information for the Uyghurs and successfully struggled with the censorship and the government control in China.



Mr. Kanat's dismissal is not only a major setback for his professional career, but also a new barrier for freedom of information and news for the Uyghur people, which is the main reason of RFA's establishment and existence. This disappointing event has already tainted the image of the RFA around the world among Uyghurs. The treatment of the most respected and trusted Uyghur journalist is causing disillusionment and disenchantment regarding RFA programs. As the loyal supporters of the RFA Uyghur program, I respectfully ask the RFA leadership to reconsider their decision about Mr. Kanat. Uyghur community around the world is ready to do whatever it can in order to resolve this issue and once again to listen the reporting of Mr. Kanat in RFA Uyghur Service.



Finally, worldwide Uyghur communities want RFA to succeed but it is hard to imagine this organization's future success without a dedicated and seasoned journalist, such as Mr. Kanat

Something was wrong in your previous statement. However, It is great and I appreciate that you corrected your mistake by stating that "there are couple excellent reporters in RFA Uyghur services who should be excluded from the generalization, too," in you new statement.

Simply generalize an issue and a group of people is a big mistake. The generalization, which would lead the problem to a worse extent, is a mistake, and it is especially true when you try to solve a matter in theory and or in a real practical world

Thanks again for your all the statements below ,though most of them are unnecessarily explanation

B: Uyghur reporter's communication skills, language skills and willingness of promoting their knowledge on the situation of Uyghurs on various stages are poor, very poor in compare to other journalists working in different ethnic sections.

I know number of Tibetan, Burmese and Chinese reporters running after conference here and there with activist name card even though they are full time reporters of RFA.

Omar Kanat does not have any position in UAA or WUC. It is well known fact.
He has very close communication with the people and organizations around the world which he had built over the time. this is in fact his advantage and another factor that made him more successful than other reporters.

I know there are couple excellent reporters in RFA Uyghur services who must be excluded from generalization, too.

Something was wrong in your previous statement. However, It is great and I appreciate that you corrected your mistake by stating that "there are couple excellent reporters in RFA Uyghur services who should be excluded from the generalization, too," in you new statement.

Simply generalize an issue and a group of people is a big mistake. The generalization, which would lead the problem to a worse extent, is a mistake, and it is especially true when you try to solve a matter in theory and or in a real practical world

Thanks again for your all the statements below ,though most of them are unnecessarily explanation
