Istanbul Chinese restaurant attacked during demonstrations against China’s treatment of Uyghur Muslims
- Despite being owned by a Turkish man and employing a Uyghur cook, Happy China became a target of protesters’ anger.
- The owner said that he will be closing the restaurant, which he opened after saving money for 25 years as a tour guide.
“Our customers are Indonesian Muslims in general. We work with Far East Asian people. Only a tiny portion of our customers are made up of Chinese customers. We do not serve alcoholic drinks. Although we work with Muslims, an attack like this has occurred.”
