原文标题：Chinese navy signs up Uygur Muslim women for deep sea missions
BEIJING: The Chinese military has began recruiting Uygur Muslim women for its navy in what appears to be first such experiment to open up its ranks for minorities, especially from volatile Xinjiang province where Islamic militants are fighting a separatist movement.
Twenty Uygur women were recruited for the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) who now started their voyage missions on naval ships, according to state-run China Daily.
"It is an honour that I am among the first 20 Uygur women to serve our country in the navy," said Aytulun Xukrat, a 19- year-old woman who joined the navy along with two of her sisters.
Xukrat, from Turpan in Xinjiang, now works in the communications section on the Jinggangshan, one of the Chinese navy's most advanced landing craft.
Their recruitment was significant as Uygurs, Muslims of Turkish-origin, were restive for the past several years agitating against the increasing settlements of Han Chinese nationals from the mainland.
"After I was recruited in 2011 and later joined the navy's South Sea Fleet, two of my younger sisters followed suit and are now serving in the North Sea Fleet and East Sea Fleet. We are the pride of our family," she told the Daily.

Indian women should not be disturbed from divine task of making babies. Let China do what they want. We need more BACHHAS and BACHHIS.

China not "opening up", it always like that but the anti-China people always distorted it. We Uygur and ethnic minorities treated even better than Hans people who sometimes jealous with us. Most uygur very happy with China.

we muslims tolerate to everyone. if state is giving equal rights and freedom of religion, we should be faithful for our country. if country is displacing and preventing from out religion like Burma. we should resist.

China may recruit the Uighurs and the Tibetans into their navy in the communications section but I would advise them not to post them in their submarine arm...........Both these ethnic groups do not have any concept of a bath and stink to high heaven. Life on a submarine with these two ethnic varieties would be one big stink for their comrades from other parts of the People's Republic of China. Anyone who has come close to the Uighurs or the Tibetans will know what I mean.

They smell better than Indians. Recently I attended an Easter gathering for children and there were some recent migrants from India there. I wanted to welcome them but had to stop as I couldn't stand the body-odour. It was a pity so I hope Indians who comment on other people do so with a bit of judgement.

This is an example, how country progress, by taking minority under consideration, our country will also shine much better then Chinese, if the prejudice and isolation of minority is removed and give the fair chance to minority, this is not by reading, but by experience, how the minority are sidelined in India and also the SC and ST, India has to eradicate these mind set, then only we will progress like other big country, now waiting for some ve feedback, cross my finger!!!! ;)

The life Indian muslims are enjoying here as minority its no where on the earth.India has reaservations,quotas and special status that gives them more chances than majority Hindus itself. India had Presidents,vice presidents,generals, chief justices,ministers holding very high offices and what not and you shamefully telling what India should do for minority muslims.Its always muslims who yammer while other minorities never show such alienated attitude/tendencies.Contrary to your view I would rather say with appeasement and much care/concern to muslim minority India could have achieved more progress.Your minority is extremely unthankful and an extra burden on Hindu majority.

Things are changing in India too my friend. Today we see large nos of Muslim youth in the organised private sector like HDFC, Axis Bank and the private sector Insurance cos like ICICI Lombard, Icici Prulife etc etc not to speak of a fair amount of them in the police and the airlines and the hospitality industry. I admit more need to be taken up but the change is there to see and remember the initial change is always slow. And now, tell me if China is so good to the minorities, how come there are still murderous riots in Xinjiang almost every fortnight and why do monks regularly set themselves on fire in Chinese occupied Tibet? However, I entirely agree with you that minorities in any nation more so in ours should always be helped to join the mainstream, after all minorities residing in our country are Indians too.

我的朋友，印度的情况已经在改变，今天我们能在HDFC、Axis银行等组织有序的私营部门以及印度工业信贷伦巴德保险、 Icici Prulife等私营保险公司看到大量的穆斯林年轻人，更不用提警察队伍、航空公司以及酒店业里相当数量的从业者。我承认还做得不够，但改变已经出现了，最初的改变总是那么缓慢。告诉我，中国对少数民族有这么好吗，怎么新疆几乎每两个星期就出现杀人骚乱，为何西藏的僧人要自焚？不过我完全同意你说的一点，即各国少数民族差不多都这样，他们有待帮助融入主流社会，毕竟居住在我国的少数族群也是印度人。

I love my nation India from the bottom of heart but when i read TIO comments section, i had to question my safety & future prospects here as i see lots of poisonous & vengeance from Hindu named commentators. the poison of Religious intolerance be in "Talibanic ( not Islamic) jihad" or Hindutav ( not sanatan) should be abhored by all sections of Indian society. We dont want to see another form of Afghanistan dipped in Hindutav here on our soil. lets progress togather.
