The Uighurs have been fighting for Islamic causes for long as in Afghanistan too. Therefore, to find that they might be fighting for ISIS would not be unfounded, unusual or surprising. Yet, for China, it is serious issues since China's basic political philosophy is domestic 'peace, harmony and stability'. What is dangerous for China is that these Chinese Muslims would become high indoctrinated and even suicidal for the cause. And when they return, the Chinese Muslims may do a TTP on China and that will be real serious an issue for China to handle. The Chinese approach towards handling errant minorities is totally flawed and cockeyed since they are bent on emulating their historical ways of Sinicisation to wipe out the roots, culture, traditions, customs, language, religion et al of people who are the minorities in China's New Frontiers of Xinjiang and Tibet. Xijiang means New Frontier. In the modern world, Sinicisation may work but at a huge cost. What makes the situation worse is that there is a reawakening of the Islamic grandeur and that is permeating to the otherwise downtrodden Muslims of China, and it is a fire that seems unquenchable. This reawakening churn is most disturbing for the world, and more so, China, since it is not willing to accommodate any thoughts or ideas beyond the Communist mindset catalysed by a virulent and arrogant Han cultural superiority that makes a via media impossible. Unless China eases its arrogant Han ways and allow the people some leeway, China shall burn. And there are many waiting in the wings to encourage the same.
