China Is Detaining Muslims in Vast Numbers. The Goal: 'Transformation'

n the edge of a desert in far western China, an imposing building sits behind a fence topped with barbed wire. Large red characters on the facade urge people to learn Chinese, study law and acquire job skills. Guards make clear that visitors are not welcome.

Inside, hundreds of ethnic Uighur Muslims spend their days in a high-pressure indoctrination program, where they are forced to listen to lectures, sing hymns praising the Chinese Communist Party and write “self-criticism” essays, according to detainees who have been released.

The goal is to remove any devotion to Islam.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

"The goal is to remove any devotion to Islam."


More disinformation from the NYT. Islam as well as other religions are celebrated in China. Their religious sites, temples, mosques, and others are highly valued places.

The problem which the NYT does not mention is that the CIA infiltrates religious groups as a way to initiate destabilization s in China. The Chinese government knows this perfectly well. This was the problem with Falung Gong, which finally threw out the CIA and became consciously a-political.

Why should any nation allow foreign saboteurs like the CIA to infiltrate religious organizations with the long term goal of regime change. The US would not allow this, if any foreign nation ever dreamed of it.
