Human rights workers have voiced concern over Han–Uyghur forced marriage in China.[1][2][3]

The 1931 Qumul uprising was triggered by the forced marriage of a young Uyghur woman to a Lieutenant of the Han army.[4]

CJ Werleman, writing in the Middle East Eye described the confinement of Uyghur men to concentration camps, while Uyghur women were forced into marriages to Han men.[1]

"The immediate catalyst for it was outrage at the forced marriage of a local girl to a Chinese lieutenant, but discontent among Turkic-speaking Muslims had been growing since Jin’s abolition of the local wang (king) administration in 1930, the immediate effects of which were the imposition of new taxes, and an influx of poor Chinese immigrants."
