ABSTRACT

Hui Muslims and the 'Xinjiang Model' of State Suppression of Religion   [open pdf - 626KB]

From the Abstract: "Despite the relative freedom from Chinese government restrictions Hui Muslims experienced in recent history, official Chinese government rhetoric and policy has become less tolerant toward practice and expression of Islamic identity among Hui Muslim individuals and communities. The restrictions on Islam among Hui Muslim individuals and communities are increasingly similar to restrictions experienced by Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR). In addition to being detained along with Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and others in the XUAR's mass internment camps, Hui Muslims are subject to what some have called the 'Xinjiang Model' of intrusive and repressive religious policies. This policy shift is due in part to Chinese officials' conflation of Islamic identity and extremism and the Chinese government's campaign to 'sinicize' Islam."
