XINJIANG — In one scene, Uighur women are seen dancing in a rousing Bollywood style face-off with a group of Uighur men. In another, a Kazakh man serenades a group of friends with a traditional two-stringed lute while sitting in a yurt.

Welcome to “The Wings of Songs,” a state-backed musical that is the latest addition to China’s propaganda campaign to defend its policies in Xinjiang.

rr

The campaign has intensified in recent weeks as Western politicians and rights groups have accused Beijing of subjecting Uighurs and other Muslim minorities in Xinjiang to forced labour and genocide.

rr

The film, which debuted in Chinese cinemas last week, offers a glimpse of the alternate vision of Xinjiang that China’s ruling Communist Party is pushing to audiences at home and abroad. Far from being oppressed, the musical seems to say, the Uighurs and other minorities are singing and dancing happily in colourful dress, a flashy take on a tired Chinese stereotype about the region’s minorities that Uighur rights activists quickly denounced.

rr

“The notion that Uighurs can sing and dance so therefore there is no genocide — that’s just not going to work,” said Mr Nury Turkel, a Uighur American lawyer and senior fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington.

rr

“Genocide can take place in any beautiful place.”

rr

In the wake of Western sanctions, the Chinese government has responded with a fresh wave of Xinjiang propaganda across a wide spectrum. The approach ranges from portraying a sanitised, feel-good version of life in Xinjiang — as in the example of the musical — to deploying Chinese officials on social media sites to attack Beijing’s critics.

rr

To reinforce its message, the party is emphasising that its efforts have rooted out the perceived threat of violent terrorism.

rr

In the government’s telling, Xinjiang is now a peaceful place where Han Chinese, the nation’s dominant ethnic group, live in harmony alongside the region’s Muslim ethnic minorities, just like the “seeds of a pomegranate”.

rr

It’s a place where the government has successfully emancipated women from the shackles of extremist thinking. And the region’s ethnic minorities are portrayed as grateful for the government’s efforts.

rr

The musical takes the narrative to a new cringe-inducing level. It tells the story of three young men, a Uighur, a Kazakh and a Han Chinese, who come together to pursue their musical dreams.

rr

The movie depicts Xinjiang, a predominantly Muslim region in China’s far west, as scrubbed free of Islamic influence. Young Uighur men are clean-shaven and seen chugging beers, free of the beards and abstinence from alcohol that authorities see as signs of religious extremism. Uighur women are seen without traditional headscarves.

rr

The Uighurs and other Central Asian ethnic minorities, seen through this lens, are also portrayed as fully assimilated into the mainstream. They are fluent in Chinese, with few, if any, hints of their native languages. They get along well with the Han Chinese ethnic majority, with no sense of the long-simmering resentment among Uighurs and other minorities over systematic discrimination.
