Beijing circulates anti-Muslim posters

Anti-Muslim posters have emerged in China, warning citizens to be aware of ‘people with beard, black clothes or black robes’.

Beijing, Sep 8 (IBNS): Anti-Muslim posters have emerged in China, warning citizens to be aware of ‘people with beard, black clothes or black robes’.
Among other things, the poster contains: “No smoking/drinking: Be vigilant to underground weekly preaching.”

The caricatures following the instructions are that of stereotypical image of a Muslim man and a woman.

The poster also described the Uyghur flag as ‘suspicious’.

Putting up a Uyghur flag, the poster said: “Blue flag with the moon and the star, these markings are suspicious.”

This comes post the crack down on Islamic names, long beards and burqa by the Chinese government.

Over the years, Beijing has riled many human rights watchdogs for its behaviour towards the ethnic Uyghur, who it treats as dissidents.

    ‘people with beard, black clothes or black robes’
    That’s going to be awkward for Greek Orthodox priests and Hasidim.

      “That’s going to be awkward for Greek Orthodox priests and Hasidim.”
      Don’t worry, the Chinese government has been working to rid itself of all competition for ethical standards and loyalty even since the communists took power. There would be very few traditionally clothed christian or Jews in China today as a result of this decades long purge.

      China is worried about fanatical Uyghurs coming out of the Xinjiang province to cause mayhem with attacks on civilians in other parts of China. There are about 13 million muslims in Xinjiang, which borders on Pakistan and Afghanistan.There have been many attacks in China by muslims demanding independence from the ethnic Han rule and the freedom to have islam as an unfettered religion.

        To be very cold. It’s a grudge match between 2 fanatical totalitarianism. A pity both can’t lose

    good for china

    wonder what muslim convert Trudeau will think of this

    • David Murrell

      Could be difficult for PM Trudeau. He likes Uyghurs (since they commit war crimes against innocents) and he likes the Chinese central government (since they operate large internment camps for dissidents). Hard for Justin to choose sides between two friends.

        He’s torn, as with sneaking the gay Chechens out of Russia.

      • Butts will show him the way.

          • You’re just trying to make an @$$ out of him! Well, that will end now!

    But, but, this can’t be true. Everyone knows it’s only right wing white supremacist nazi racist white people who are filthy “Islamophobes”!

    Frankly I am disappointed. I want to see a much more serious crackdown on Muslims by the Chinese. I know they can do it, because they have done it with other groups. Enough of this playing nice stuff.

  • Starlord

    Trudeau probably doesn’t admire this side of the Chinese…

  • Gary

    Hmmm…. why is it that Japan doesn’t have a problem with muslim terrorists .

    There must be a reason but it can’t be that simple that they DON’T allow muslim immigration or mosque permits.
    islam a religion of peace .
