Chinese province orders religion out of school

BEIJING: A Chinese province with a minority Muslim population has demanded strict adherence to a ban on religion in schools after a video circulated online in which a kindergartener recites verses from the Holy Quran.

The government in the northwestern province of Gansu reiterated the officially atheistic communist government's rules forbidding the presence of religion in public schools at all levels, saying it was protecting children.

“This video has drawn a gasp from the public, as many people are infuriated,” said a statement issued Thursday.

“The Education Department of Gansu province strongly condemns the act that harms the mental health of the youth, and demands education agencies of all levels to stop it resolutely and strictly bans religion from campuses.”

In the video, the unidentified girl is seen wearing a black headscarf and sitting in a classroom with dozens of other students — apparently all in "Muslim attire".

There is no indication when and where the video was taken, but the provincial government statement said it was taken in the predominantly Muslim prefecture of Linxia. The government did not identify the kindergarten or if anyone from the school was punished.

China also enforces tight restrictions on religious participation by young people outside of school, particularly in its culturally distinct western regions where Islam and Tibetan Buddhism are widely practised.

The government is especially wary of what it sees as the use of religion to promote a non-Chinese cultural identity or independence for Tibet and the northwestern region of Xinjiang.

My comments : Well, I hope this doesn't adversely affect China-Pakistan friendship which is "deeper than the ocean and taller than mountain".

And drums would be seen getting beaten by paki media if so could have said by a Sanghi. :D
China banned burqa, they said nothing, Imams were made to dance on roads, they said nothing. But never miss intolerance in India.
Islam is just a cover these people use to exercise their selfish goals.

They are doing many things in the name of God.

Islam is a tribal religion or the religion of the ignorant. As it puts so much emphasis on violence (power) it appeals to the uneducated and lowly educated youth the most.

Islam is basically composed of two parties
1. The ignorant warriors of Islam.
2. The Imams and the Emperors who thrive on (1) ignorant warriors.

Unfortunately Anglo-American empire is one of those power centers who have always used Islam for their selfish ends. This has resulted in unchecked rise of Islam in last few decades.

Even Tajikistan banned burqas and beards and shaved 13,000 men in public to humiliate them. Not one Pakistani crocodile shed a tear then.

As usual, American apologists are crying foul. This is why no one should feel any bit of sympathy for 9/11. It's Karma.

the OP deliberately distorts the subject.

anyway check what world leaders / advanced countries are practising.


In the United States, school prayer cannot be required of students in accordance with the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. In Canada, school sponsored prayer is disallowed under the concept of Freedom of conscience as outlined in the Canadian Charter on Rights & Fundamental Freedoms. School sponsored prayer is disallowed in France as a byproduct of its status as alaïcist (religiously neutral) nation. Countries that allow or require school and other state-sponsored prayer include Greece, Iran,Australia, Italy and the United Kingdom.

Countries that prohibit school-sponsored prayerEdit

United StatesEdit

Main articles: Education in the United States and Religion in the United States

In the United States, public schools are banned from conducting religious observances such as prayer.

Buddy, we are not blaming China. Muslims are too sensitive about religion than anyone.
Indian Muslims, paki Muslims see India so intolerant and unislamic (who actually provides more lenience).
If such statement had been given by any Indian Politician or bureaucrat, Pakis and their Arab friend channel Al Jazeera would be seen beating drums. :biggrin2:
So, trying to show them rest of world.

Sir, so India is not secularized yet......?

# just asked it.
Constitutionally Yes
Mentally, a long way to go.
24% of Indians have no importance of religion in their life, 39% for USA.
Though 74% for Japanese and China is world's most secularized country with over 90%.
Though only 24% of population is religiously inactive, it's still a good percentage for a developing and 70% increased since last survey.
And let me tell you no matter how many countries adopt secular constitution, a significantly lesser portion of population is today respecting it. India's isn't alone Though atheism and agnostism is growing fast here. We can have 40-50% till 2030.

Atheism and agnosticism was 99.9999% in India.
Please read history.

After Shankaracharya bhagavathpada, the down trend started.

"Going to bed with Pakistan has retarded the mental growth of Chinese leaders". So, why is Xi Jinping so fond of Hafiz Said, who is mentally retarded and raises hundreds of thousands of young boys in Packeestan to be similarly retarded? @amoy?

The news is 【Chinese Province orders religion out of school】but u were so sneaky to change the subject as Islam harms mental health.... blah... Even a 3-year-old knows the difference.

@spikey360 our relationship is based on mutual respect and non interference that's been deeply ingrained in our superior civlization like Kongfuzi says "Do to others as u would have them do to u." Neither wants to force one's own ideas upon the other so that our friendship lasts.
