Rebiya Kaader

I wrote about Rebiya Kaader (رابىيه قادىر) also in a previous post, in 2006. She had been nominated that year for the Nobel Peace Prize. By that time I was a neighbor of Mrs. Kaader and of her family and I was passing by their apartment often, as they were living at the ground floor. They had arranged a small terrace in front of their large windows and especially her husband loved to sit there sipping his tea and talking to friends. I had read about her fight for the rights of Uyghur people and I was full of admiration for this courageous woman. I feel this as a great privilege, having been a neighbor with her.
