Muslims In China: Chinese Shop Owners Ordered To Sell Alcohol, Cigarettes To Weaken Islam

Muslim shops and restaurants in a Chinese village have been ordered to sell alcohol and cigarettes in an effort to weaken Islam’s hold on residents in China’s Xinjiang region. Shop owners who refuse face closure and prosecution, Radio Free Asia (RFA) reported Monday. It is the latest in a series of anti-Muslim campaigns by Chinese authorities in the name of fighting religious extremism to undermine Islam influence in northwestern China.

  • This is a good start. But how about some more reality.

    Examine the Koran in public. And force a rewrite that excludes all the passages which incite hatred.

    Publish the list of the hateful passages. And arrest anyone caught teaching these hateful passages.

    This will start the reformation process.

      In China, that is likely coming. The Chinese are very thorough.

        You mean monolithic. And that’s a good thing. Can you imagine the Muslims infiltrating Japan like they are Western culture?

    I have dealings with a liquor store in Manhattan that is owned by Muslims, but to these owners, the store is a cash cow.

    Muslim stores do not sell cigarettes? There is a bunch of Muslim students in our Faculty of Business (below my office), and every day during classes they are outside smoking like chimneys. I had always thought that Muslims smoke more than non-Muslims? Am I wrong on this?
