Religious groups have seen their freedoms reduced as government makes faithful pledge allegiance to officially atheist Communist Party. Thousands of ethnic Hui Muslims gathered at a mosque in northwestern China to protest its planned demolition in a rare demonstration against the government. It would be forcibly demolished on Friday, they added in the note, which was widely circulated among Chinese Muslims on social media. The protest on Friday comes as faith groups, which were largely tolerated in the past, have seen their freedoms reduced as the government seeks to “Sinicise” religions by making the faithful prioritise allegiance to the officially atheist ruling Communist Party. Islamic crescents and domes have been stripped from mosques, Christian churches shut down and bibles seized, and Tibetan children have been moved from Buddhist temples to schools. The residents of Weizhou were alarmed by news that the government was planning to demolish the mosque despite initially appearing to approve its construction, which was completed just last year. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...eizhou-grand-mosque-ningxia-hui-a8485871.html I didn't hear even a squeak from China's slaves, the Islamic Republic of Pak, on them curbing the freedom of Muslims. If it had been in India these buggers would have gone to town and raised the issue with all Muslim countries and even petitioned the UN to stop 'human rights violations'. But this is China. Pakis don't have the balls to ask their masters to stop this religious discrimination. And they call themselves the keepers of the Muslim faith! Straw men. Gutless. Land of Pure Hypocrites!
