The Charkhlik revolt was a Uighur uprising in 1935 against Chinese Muslim-dominated Tunganistan, which was administered by the 36th Division. The Chinese Muslim troops quickly and brutally defeated the Uighur revolt.[1][2] Over 100 Uighurs were executed. The revolt leader's family were made hostages.[3][4]
