Feb 13, 2015 – Pictures: Chinese Government Forces Muslim Clerics To Dance On Streets & Swear To Not Preach Islam To Youths

In a major crackdown on religious freedoms, China has forced the imams of eastern Muslim majority district of Xinjiang to dance in the street, and swear to an oath that they will not teach religion to children as well as telling them that prayer is harmful to the soul.

During the incident, reported recently by World Bulletin, Muslim imams were forced to brandish the slogan that “our income comes from the CKP not from Allah.”

State Chinese news said the imams were gathering in a square in the name of civilization where they were forced to dance and chant out slogans in support of the state.

The slogans included statements glorifying the state over religion such as “peace of the country gives peace to the soul”.

They also gave speeches telling youth to stay away from mosques, and that the prayer was harmful to their health, encouraging them to dance instead.

Female teachers were instructed to teach children to stay away from religious education and made to swear an oath that they will keep children away from religion.

Uighur Muslims are a Turkish-speaking minority of eight million in the northwestern Xinjiang region.

Xinjiang, which activists call East Turkestan, has been autonomous since 1955 but continues to be the subject of massive security crackdowns by Chinese authorities.

Rights groups accuse Chinese authorities of religious repression against Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang in the name of counter terrorism.

Last November, Xinjiang banned the practicing of religion in government buildings, as well as wearing clothes or logos associated with religious extremism.

In August, the northern Xinjiang city of Karamay prohibited young men with beards and women in burqas or hijabs from boarding public buses.

Earlier in July, China banned students and government staff from observing Ramadan fasting, as officials tried to encourage locals in Xinjiang not to wear Islamic veils.

      Go bring your extremist to China and see what will happen to you and those your extremist, China is not Europe either America, guess you do not know that in some countries you can not practice Muslim, try it and see your early grave, Muslim is no bodies friend, though there are good ones, but the good ones don’t fight the bad ones to redeem their image.

          @hjovial, you have just make sense with your ******, tell me any where in the world that is a Muslim country that is not all about killings for just no cause ? if your sensible enough you would have read where I mentioned of the good ones, precaution is the best defense if you don’t know let me help to educate you.
          China is doing all this because they don’t want to experience what is happening in the other countries, an idiom says, an elder should not beat a child because he/her is looking for his/her own, same thing applies to the child, for long there is Muslims practicing in China with out harassment or molestation, but the level of rampant killings by the Muslims has gone out hand, make your own sense @hajovial if you do have one, I don’t want to be nasty on you but be sensible and make your own contribution if you really have sense to tackle issues like this

    Austin, wat hapnd here iznt jst against Islam. Communism is one wicked way of life rooted deep in evil. Hinduism & Budhism are evn beta;@least they assent 2d existence of God. But 2 communism, man is d essence. There is no God. Did u not read dat d Imans were 4sd 2say dat prayer was harmful 2d soul, &dat wealth came frm CKP, not frm Allah? Dis is d atheist’s religion! Dnt b surprised 2 hear dis treatment being meted out2Christians by 2moro.

    I often wonda which is mor corrupt btwn China & Nigeria. They look no bak wen they want 2 mess up wit human rights.

      @Metu, as you can see I started your name with capital letter, unlike those pimps I start their name with small letter.
      Nyetu, I do not support any religion with violence and killings of innocent people, if the Christians resort to violence I will never support them, but in self defense I will 101% support them, so if the Christians resort to killings with out boundary any country in the world is free to stop them their on way, guess if the Christians retaliate and attack the way our Muslim brothers and sisters attack us, this stupidity of this so called jihadist would have stopped by now all over the world

    The meaning of Islam is not peace! Islam in Arabic means submission. So many Muslims don’t know what the believe in.

    “It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad- SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) hate (it).”

    chinese are right bc thats the way they saw they can protect their society, from the deadly religion called islam. If you observe criticaly,right from the begining their prophet islamised pple with sword. More to that he instructed his follower to kill these who disbeleive his religion.If i may ask WHO is the ALLAH in islam? no be spreme God ooooh! na that thing wey dey Inside that black stone in Mecca. pls don’t deceive your self. speakers on islam, study the two religions and evaluate, be sincere to yourself not becauce you have been used to it and claim it to be the most peaceful religion,thats not the right thing.he left you with unanswered question. what will happen here after? no assurance of salvation.JESUS HAS MADE IT CLEAR TO THE WORLD THAT “HE THE WAY,THE TRUTH AND LIFE,NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT BY ME.therefore repent and accept Jesus and you have enternal life.SHALOM
