Show loyalty by eating pork, Beijing tells Uighur Muslims

October 11, 2018

China has demanded that the country’s Muslim Uighur minority turn its back on the Koran and eat pork.

As part of its war on terror, the Communist Party has begun an anti-halal movement to stamp out what it believes are radical religious thoughts shared among the country’s 11 million Uighurs.

Beijing is suspicious of all religions, perceiving them as a threat to party rule, but it is particularly anxious about Islam, which it blames for fuelling militant violence. The authorities in Xinjiang, in the far west of the country, are holding hundreds of thousands of Uighurs in detention camps and forcing them to undergo “deradicalisation” programmes. Prisoners are made to eat pork, recant their Islamic beliefs and sing songs that praise the Chinese regime.
