    BEIJING: Amid an upsurge in separatist violence, a city in China's restive Xinjiang region has banned those in Islamic headscarves, burqas and with long beards from public transport.

    Officials in Karamay said the ban, which prohibits headscarves, partial face veils and burqas, would last until August 20 due to a local sports event.

    Xinjiang, home to the Muslim Uighur minority, has seen an upsurge in violence in recent months.

    Authorities have blamed Uygur separatists for the upsurge in violence.

    In a report by the Karamay Daily which was carried by national media outlets, officials listed the "five types of people" who would be banned from public transport.

    They are people wearing headscarves, veils, burqas, clothes with the crescent moon and star symbol, and "youths with long beards".

    "Passengers who do not co-operate, particularly the 'five types of people', will be reported to the police," said the report, which added that all commuters would be subject to bag checks.

    "The security measures will ensure social stability and protect the lives, property and safety of citizens of all races," said the report.

    Karamay is a city about 400km north of Xinjaing's capital Urumqi, which was hit by deadly attacks in April and May at a railway station and a market.

    The latest unrest in Xinjiang took place on July 28 in Yarkant county.

    China's state media said a group armed with knives and axes stormed a police station and government offices. It said 37 civilians and 59 attackers were killed.

    Reports surfaced last month that some government departments in Xinjiang were banning Muslim staff from fasting during Ramzan.

    Days after the Yarkant incident the imam of China's largest mosque, in the Xinjiang city of Kashgar, was stabbed and killed.

    The imam, Jume Tahir, was said to be unpopular among Uygurs who disliked the fact that he praised the ruling Communist Party policies while preaching in his mosque.

    Uygurs are a Turkic-speaking Muslims with ethnic fraternity in Turkey, bordering Syria.

    Xinjiang which is restive over native Muslim Uygurs resentment over settlements of Hans is witnessing a number terrorist attacks in recent past.

    Well if China is banning long beards maybe it is because

    It is permissible to remove anything more than a “handful” of the beard [the hair of the beard that comes beneath the hand if the beard is seized in the hand], basing that on the action of Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him). Al-Bukhaari (5892) narrated: When Ibn ‘Umar did Hajj or ‘Umrah he would take hold of his beard and would trim any excess.

    I agree.
    But I feel that clothes with "crescent moon and star symbol" is a little too much. Is there a proper explanation for that ?

    Of course sheer talking is not enough.

    But it still won't get you loyalty.

    But I concede that it is good strategy.

    They will kill the quisling amongst them and that will start an internecine feud and the Muslims are known for their 'honour' killings.

    Don't you think CCP is oppressing the whole community because of hand full of terrorists??

    Lakhs of people are suffering because of Han migration and oppressive laws like suppressing their faith, taking away their identity, taking away their livelihood etc...etc....

    China will bear with the difficulty and keep sending more Han to change the demography.

    Once done, they will address the Uighurs and eliminate them by making them Han in all aspects, as they have done to all races in lands the captured to make what today is the Political Map of China.

    CCP will do ethnic cleansing in Xinjiang for sure , they are like bulldozer who will demolish any obstacle on their way.

    But until now Chinese have never faced asymmetric warfare and Islamic terror threat.

    These jihadists have safe havens in the adjacent regions like Afghanistan and Pakistan and there is a firm backing for their ideology.

    Now China will know what the Pakistan's ambassador to China meant 'as higher than the mountains, deeper than the oceans, stronger than steel, dearer than eyesight, sweeter than honey, and so on'.

    Nothing is too much for the Muslims; they will always come up with one or the other absurd explanation, when there there is nothing explain, they switch on "Denial Mode".

    Do the madrasa also the arab people and islamic community think that PRC is a uncharted and unconquered region fit for Islam to set its foundation and spread.

    One knows that PRC is atheist and the demography of religion is not widespread and entrenched.

    Why would Arab think-tanks settle (only) for Paki-Nukes and why not go for the actual source and more reliability and also have a much bigger vessel in PRC.

    Islamic People Republic of China ... whats wrong with that. For example Han that have Islamic Belief vs Xinjiang People. How many Han people have and follow Islam religion.

    The reaction of PRC people to Muslims - Terrorist is in tune with India it seems.

    I'd tend to agree with both of your posts especially more so with Ray-ji's post .

    CCP is more likely to succeed totally where the former Soviet union succeeded partially in
    reducing the radical religious threat in it's territory. If we look at the (now ) former S:U: states
    which are now nations - they practiced till today, a moderate form of Islam which was more
    cultural than religious.

    But that is changing, especially in Uzbekistan where there are signs that a radical form of religion
    is in the making . That is why i consider the S:U: to have succeeded only temporarily.

    With CCP the demographics are hugely different . they have the capacity which the S:U: did NOT have
    which is - to flood the minority areas with majority race .
    Every time there is violence in the minority areas against the Han, there is a reluctance for the Han to take
    the opportunities presented to them by their government - the incentives and rewards to go live in a minority area.

    But after some time , when things get under the control of the army and police - then the Mass daily
    transmigration of Han into minority areas resumes back to the normal levels - about 3,000 a day
    is a figure quoted for Tibet if i remember correctly - i do not know the figure for Xinjiang.

    With that kind of demographic resource that CCP has - they dont have to settle for the kind of
    half-done job left by the S:U: - most likely teh CCP will succeed in making the XInjiang Muslims
    a real minority of say 5 % or even 4% in the longer run - in their own former native land . .

    China is doing right.

    If this radicalism is not stopped it would spread like cancer and further division of China based on religion.

    Wish is India could learn something here by China. :dude:
