Since 2017, China has run a “Pair Up and Become Family” program in Xinjiang, in which Communist Party officials who are Han Chinese — the ethnic group that makes up most of China’s population — stay in Uighur homes. The program is to “promote ethnic unity,” according officials, but also lets the government keep a close eye on them.

Those officials, who are mostly men, typically stay for up to six days a week at each Uighur household, many of which have male family members in detention, RFA cited an anonymous Communist Party official in Kashgar city as saying. The Han Chinese officials — who are called “relatives” even though they are not family — visit Kashgar every two months and work and eat with Uighur families, as well as discuss Communist Party political ideology.

It is now considered normal for females to sleep on the same platform with their paired male ‘relatives.’
