Oh,that is a hard job.

I know a website,www.uighurislam.com, unfortunately, they don't have English version. If you know Uyghur,Turkish,or Arab, it might help you.

You can also find some information from google.com by entering Uyghur Islam. But I suggest you check the university library database. Usually,library resources are more reliable. Good luck.

I suggest you to formulate a couple of specific questions and post them on Uighur-l@taklamakan.org
There might be people on that list who can help you. You can also post your questions here. We can try to answer.
If you have not signed up for Uighur-l, you can send an email to:majordoma@taklamakan.org
include "subscribe Uighur-l" in the body.

Good luck,

You may start your research by reading following author's book on Uyghurlar:

Mackerras, Colin, 1939- His:

Ethnicity in Asia / edited by Colin Mackerras.

The Uighurs

Dreyer, June Teufel, 1939-

Andrew D.W. Forbes.

And there was another key author, I forgot his name, he was an ethnologist/Anthropologist, he has written few articles and books on Uyghurlar of Turfan and other aspects of Uyghur culture, history.

Hope this gives you some clue for your beginning.
