If indeed this is true, China will be the largest Christian nation. Possibly the Chinese feel that Christianity is alien to China and is a 'foreign' religion and so while the Chinese Govt is benign to Chinese Buddhism ( as different from Tibetan Buddhism) and other indigenous religions and philosophy, it is very chary about 'foreign' religions and their influence to cause disruption to the Han culture that has been nurtured and spread over centuries of their history. It is this Han culture that has given a single identity to China and which is today a force to reckon with, no matter what was the identity of the people, who inhabit China today. That is the reason why China is very sensitive to foreign religions since their background is totally different to that of China and they are subservient to foreign religious centres of power, which can work to destabilise China and stop the progress China has made so far and still counting. That is the reason why China has gone hammer and tongs in preventing these religions, be it Christianity or Islam, to take an independent line as per their religious belief and instead ensures that the message of these religions is controlled by the Centre that is in conformity to Chinese aspirations and preservation of Han culture. Will 'foreign' religions be able to take a hold of China? What must China do to ensure that only indigenous religions that have connection with Han culture flourish and stop the galloping spread of 'foreign' religions that will gnaw the innards of China and may even wipe out the Han culture that has been cultivate assiduously through the ages? Will China's attempt to contain the 'foreign' religions give rise to greater outrage from the West of 'human rights' violations?
