China mulls banning ‘terrorist’ clothing

Chinese legislators have proposed a new nationwide ban on “terrorist” clothing in the latest move designed to curb Islamic extremism in restive Xinjiang.

The draft amendment proposed Aug. 24 by China’s top legislature does not specify what would be criminalized. However, the proposed ban is believed to apply to burqas, separatist flags and Islamic beards.

Those found guilty of wearing or forcing others to wear “clothes or symbols in public associated with terrorism and extremism” would face three years in prison.

    A good start.

    • China does not kid around.

    • lolwut?

      Not really, They’re basically ordering to remove their uniforms and Islam allows for that if it means not being spotted and continuing to infiltrate the target nation.

      It doesn’t hurt the Muslims, only the Chinese who’s job it is to watch them.

      Now they will blend into the general populace.

    • Good start. If you want to break up a cult, stopping cult practices will help.
