China’s Muslims are banned from using their language in schools as Beijing continues to crack down on Islamic extremism

Authorities in China’s Xinjiang region have banned China’s Muslims from using their language in schools.

Last month, the Hotan government in north western China prohibited the use of the Uighur language from being used in schools including pre-school.

The new move comes after strict restrictions on Muslims in the region including a ban on fasting during Ramadan.

  • The Chinese show how it is done.

    Now arrest the mullahs, close the mosques and ban any outward signs of Islam.

    Paraphrasing a great man, “Sometimes I admire China’s basic dictatorship.”

    Chine should treat Islam and its followers like they do Falong Gong followers, who in fact should not be treated this way. They are not killing people, committing terrorism while the Muslims are. My point is just ban Islam and go after any practising or promoting it.

    • ANY perceived opposition to communist power in China is treated thusly. If China is doing anything, it is being consistent, not reacting to Islamism.

      • Alain

        I agree. What I find interesting is that Falun Gong teaches self improvement and morality that the Chinese communists find too threatening to tolerate. Islam being a supremacist ideology truly represents a real threat but is not banned. I know it is pointless looking for logic where there is none.

        • Consider how many churches have been destroyed and Christians killed. A dictatorship can’t maintain itself with a religion that teaches tolerance and compassion.

          • Alain

            No worry about Islam teaching tolerance and compassion, but they should worry about it demanding complete submission to it.

          • Islam is opposite of compassion.

    Is it their language (one of the Chinese dialects) or is it Arabic that’s banned?
