Shule County as the official romanized name, also transliterated from Uyghur as Kaxgar Yengixahar County or shorten as Yengixahar County,[4] is a county situated in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and is under the administrative jurisdiction of the Kashgar Prefecture. It is located to the south of Kashgar City. In Ancient times, the Shule area was once the home to a Xiyu oasis civilisation, the Shule Kingdom.


On May 31, 2012, Sidik Kurban was sentenced by Shule County Intermediate People’s Court to fifteen years in jail and five years deprivation of political rights for 'inciting ethnic separatism' related to involvement in 'illegal religious activities'. For a decade, he had overseen home-based religious schools for eighty-six students.[5]
