Use in Xinjiang

In Xinjiang, China, this time offset is known as the Xinjiang Time or Urumqi Time (Uyghur: شىنجاڭ ۋاقتى‎‎). It is set due to its geographical location in the westernmost part of China. It has been approved by Chinese authorities for civil purposes since February 1986, although the decision had been rejected by the local ethnic Han population and some Han-dominated regional governments.

According to Human Rights Watch, an Uyghur man was arrested and detained by Chinese authorities in 2018 over "terrorist charges", just for setting his watch to Xinjiang Time.[3]
