A Missing Uighur - Ghini Engliz

I am writing a story about a person who I met, in 1986, in Kashgar. His name is Ghini Engliz. The following is the information, which I have collected so far. I hope somebody writes more about his past and present situation.

Ghini Engliz is the first person, in Kashgar, who started learning English language after the Cultural Revolution. Therefore, he was nicknamed as Ghini Engliz. After his graduation of the universities in Kashgar in 1984, he obtained a position as a lecturer of Uighur Literature in Kashgar Teachers’ Training College. In addition to his academic work in the college, he was quite popular in the city with his English Language Courses. He got married.

He had a “problem” of telling the truth, without hiding any information, to the foreign travelers. As it was the case, the police was looking for a good reason to persecute him. At last in early 1990s, he was caught as expected and taken to Urumchi and questioned there a few years without any trial. None of his relatives had been allowed to visit him before he was sentenced as for all of any other political suspects and prisoners. He spent several years in water prison and became physically disabled. He was released at last and given a job as a cleaner at his college. Refusing to incorporate with the police, he lost his job again and went to a nearby county, Payziwat. He organized a small group of people and bought a photocopier and started to write and copy his ideas to report government’s discriminatory policy against Uighur people. Just a few days later, he was caught again and disappeared since then. Some say he was given death sentence and others say he is in prison for life.

What has happened to him and to his family? Is he alive or dead? What are the physical and mental tortures he has been faced in the long-time detention and prison? Is there any of his students in the free world who is able to tell about him?

I know this person and the last time i saw him was the end of 1999?. He was lame in one of his legs and looked quite miserable. Later on I heard he went back to do his "old trick" and got arrested again. While in prison, he tried to organize some organizations and ....... too much!

Actually he got divorced with his first wife and remarried in late 1990s with whom he has got a son aged now 7ish. Later i heard he was betrayed by one of his relatives and got divorced again! Poor man!
