This year November, a 17-year-old US girl named Feroza Aziz, took the world by storm through TikTok video. She uploads regular makeup tutorial videos to explain how to keep it young and gorgeous. But she made few videos related to what is going on recently, violence punishment to the Uighur Muslim in China.
The video was viral so fast on social media and people started sharing across the world. Feroza Aziz, a human rights activist, went on to post a bunch of videos talking about pressing political issues and explaining things in a simplistic way. Her recent videos is on the controversial Citizenship Act passed by the Indian government.

The video started from daily new skin routine to the passing of the Citizenship act. She criticizes the government for removing such a vast population based solely on religion and tags the bill as “wrong, immoral and a violation of human rights.”

Hi guys! Here is part four to my “lash tutorial”. Today I wanted to speak about a woman’s story, who spent months in China’s concentration camps. Her name is Mihrigul Tursun. She told her heartbreaking story to the world…last year. And here we are today—still silent. These innocent human beings are suffering for no reason at all. They are being tortured everyday, and we are not raising our voices about this. The Uyghurs and other minorities in China are crying out for us, yet the world remains silent and does not want to listen. Why? We are better than this. We will not let evil win. Please do not remain silent. Speak up. Spread awareness. Call your senators and representatives. Contact the UN. Donate to Uyghur charities. Do something. No matter how small it is, it will always tremendously help. We will not be another failed generation that did not speak up about these kinds of things. We will be the generation that will make others after us follow in our footsteps. We have to. Please help spread awareness.

Her videos got slammed but the app who deleted was asked to give apology “human moderation error” it shouldn’t have been removed, and was only offline for 50 minutes total.
