Uyghur

Islam (mainly Sufi)[1]

Turkic peoples

The Uyghur (Uyghur: ئۇيغۇر‎, ULY: Uyghur; simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: Wéiwú'ěr; [ʔʊjˈʁʊː][2]) are a Turkic ethnic group living in Eastern and Central Asia. Today Uyghurs live primarily in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in the People's Republic of China. An estimated 80% of Xinjiang's Uyghurs live in the southwestern portion of the region, the Tarim Basin.[3]

Large diasporic communities of Uyghurs exist in the Central Asian countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan. Smaller communities are found in Mongolia, Afghanistan, Turkey, Russia and Taoyuan County of Hunan province in south-central Mainland China.[4] The Uyghur diaspora includes major cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Sydney, Washington D.C., Munich, Tokyo, Toronto, and Istanbul.[citation needed]
