Parents in majority Muslim region of China banned from ‘luring’ children into religion

In a bid to curb Islamic extremism, the Chinese government has announced that parents in a majority Muslim region will be reported to the police if they encourage or force their children into religious activities.

The new rules for Xinjiang, scheduled to come into effect on November 1, explicitly state that parents and guardians cannot “organize, lure, or force minors into attending religious activities,” Xinjiang Daily reported, as quoted by Reuters.

  • The Commies are bastards. They always do this — with any religion. I doubt it has anything to do with terrorism. It’s business as usual — State control over families and children has always been their game.

    And now we’re tasting Maoism in Canada — Kathleen Wynne using “homophobia” and bullying as a pretext. And many other examples.

      PM Jackass Sr was Maoist from the get go

      Obama is a Maoist first , Muslim second

      I agree that the communists are bastards, and actually that is far too nice a term, but it is false to say it has nothing to do with Islamic terrorism. They have had first hand experience with it. But frankly I don’t know why they don’t just make Islam illegal, since they are far better than we are at dealing with protests.

      I also agree with your second paragraph, but it isn’t limited to Wynne or Ontario. Our puppet PM is a case in point along with his backers and advisors.

      • If the Communist Chinese are against Islamic terrorism, then why are they in cahoots with Iran — the biggest State sponsor of terrorism? Same thing can be said for North Korea. Same thing with Communist Cuba and Venezuela with Iran.

        Btw, they tried to make Christianity illegal in China for decades but were only partially successful because of Western pressure, as well as the proliferation of the underground Churches. Don’t forget that a Canadian missionary was just released from spending two years in a Chinese jail a couple weeks ago.

          “the Communist Chinese are against Islamic terrorism” on their own turf. When it is bedeviling the rest of us they’re just fine with that.

    I believe in religious freedom however I make an exception with islam because it is an evil cult not a proper religion.

    • I don’t think the Uighurs are plugged into the global jihad. Do they practice beheadings and stuff? I honestly don’t know. Is it political Islam or a different brand?

      A family member of mine was in that area of China while doing language study a few years ago, I never thought to ask…

      • Alain

        Oh yes, they have committed jihad more than a few times, while mostly in China, some have joined other jihadists abroad.

        • Don’t forget that the first act of “Islamic terrorism” in Russia turned out to be Communist provocateurs. Subsequent acts have been the real deal, but it makes you wonder if the same thing is happening in China with the Uighurs. Nothing that happens with Communists is at it appears — you always have to dig deeper.

      • ismiselemeas

        Uighurs regularly have stabbing parties at police stations, shopping malls, sporting events and schools. They’re seriously kookoo crazy.

        • I get the feeling that it’s a “chicken or the egg” scenario. The Communist Government was repressing Uighurs long before the Global Jihad, and the revival of fundamentalist Islam which started in M.E. You never heard about Uighurs running around stabbing people before that.

          Yet the Communists still repressed them, the same way they repressed Tibetan Buddhists, and the same way they repressed Christians, Confusionists, peaceful Falun Gong, etc., etc. You don’t have to be violent for the Communists to repress your religion. Heck, just take a look at what’s happening in North America and Western Europe with Christianity — Christians are increasingly repressed by Western Marxists although the former are totally non-violent.

          The Global Jihad simply provides the Communists with a more convenient and justifiable pretext for doing that with the Uighurs. In a sense, the Communist Chinese are responsible for the violent Islamic response. In the special case of Communism, the chicken did in fact come before the egg, as it were. IMO.

    • Alain

      It should not be classified as a religion unless Communism and Nazism are also classified as religions.

    For those you hate Chinese more than fear islam carry on with your head in the sand. Lets hug a muslim in china and criticise the chinese- feel better for hugging the very people you normally would not touch with a stick. This blindness is the same liberals have towards muslims. The hate you have for chinese they have for non liberals. What is the difference between you two.
    You forget muslims all follow the koran and are hateful people everywhere they live because you dislike chinese more . Well done.
    One day westerners will be miving to china if europe collapses under islam. Probably wont hear any conplaints then.

    • I don’t know about that. Don’t forget there was a time not too long ago when in places like Afghanistan and Yemen women wore bikinis. How do I know this? Because of photos I’ve seen right here on BCF. And there were Churches and missionary activity. Most people wore Western garb although they are Muslim majority nations. I think it was the same thing with Iran before the revolution. And the same with Muslims in the former Soviet Union.

      Do you know for sure that there’s a terrorist problem with the Uighurs, or that they practice the same brand of brutal fundamentalist Islam such as the Sauds (Wahhabism), or the revolutionary Iranis today? It’s a rather isolated tribal region of China.

        “Do you know for sure that there’s a terrorist problem with the Uighurs?”
        Oh yeah muzzies are trouble everywhere.

        • Because the Communist Chinese said so, or can you provide references to independent sources? I’m not being argumentative — sincerely need facts when dealing with Communists.

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            I would not take the commies’ word for the time of day. No, just Google “uighurs terrorism” and check out all the stuff that pops up

    I took this picture of a Christian house church in western China, in a heavily Muslim area. Because the Christians are non-political the Chinese government is a little more tolerant towards them (and a little more aggressive against the Muslims, who are political). Without the Chinese government putting a lid on Islam I doubt whether this church would survive.

    • Okay, so you answered part of my question. But there’s still repression of Christianity as well in China. This can be a political move — the communists often use the tactic of “divide and conquer” where religion is concerned. I’ve even seen them do it between Catholics and Protestants (in Latin America). They’ll favour one group to get control of the other group, then they switch sides to get more control of the first group, etc.

      fwiw I know of a gentleman in Hong Kong who goes to Retreats on the adjacent Mainland where they study the Bible and they’re quite Evangelical. The government leaves them alone.

  • WalterBannon

    As Justin Trudope tells us, China’s totalitarian govt is grrrreat!

    OK. Carry on then China. But I suggest you try something harsher with your muslims and of course you know you have Justin’s full support no matter what!

    • Dividing children and parents like that is pretty brutal. I can’t see any justification for it unless they are teaching their kids to be suicide bombers, or commit acts of violence, such as Hamas and other groups do in the Middle East.

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        All Islam teaches all Muslims to attack all infidels. It’s the theme of the Koran.

        • I know these things. But not all Muslims follow that — in fact some Muslims don’t even know what’s in the Koran because they don’t read it.

          • ismiselemeas

            Largely because they can’t read. The imams like to keep their goats stupid.

            The vast majority of the Ummah is illiterate.

          • BTW, thanks for everybody’s response. I didn’t mean to dominate this post, but I learned something today. Sometimes I teach, sometimes I learn. 🙂

            (with the exception of Hktony who accuses us of “hating the Chinese people” — this guy sounds like he’s blogging right out of the Chinese embassy!)

            I am white. And yes the americans i see dont like china unless they are making money here. They treat the people like shit if you would like to know more. Many chinese factories wont take enquiries from Americans because their terms hurt the factory and the workers – but you believe in democracy right?
            I base my info on what happens here in asia not what i heard third hand.
            Have you met any muzzies in china or hk? Have you seen how they behave. I have in just a short time had two altercations with so called muzzies refugees coming to hk. China may not be perfect but show me one bombing, stabbing or rape done by a chinese?
            Muzzies will be muzzies and whether you like china or not they will try and kill you. Sympathy for muzzies is a waste of time. They kill. That is it! that is what you should learn. 1400 years if killing.
            They have no friends. They are beyond redemption. The chinese are not brainwashed ( hk is) to feel sympathy for killers of even their own children.
