Is China cracking down on Ramadan? | The Stream



Ramadan in Xinjiang
What is Ramadan like for Muslim Uighurs living in China’s Xinjiang region? Human rights groups continue to criticise China’s crackdown on fasting, regular prayer, and other common Muslim practices which are viewed by Chinese authorities as acts of religious extremism and dissent against the state. The number of Uighurs detained in Chinese re-education camps is unknown and Chinese officials have called them humane schools for eliminating “terrorism”. We’ll speak to human rights activists for an update to the situation and discuss a campaign to boycott China-made products during the holy month of Ramadan.

Eurovision boycott
Activists are calling on artists and music fans to boycott this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, which is being held in Tel Aviv. Those who support a cultural boycott of Israel say artists who choose to perform in this year’s competition are “artwashing” and normalising the Israeli state’s treatment of Palestinians. Others, including singer Madonna, say all human rights should be respected and that music should be seen as a medium for peace. So, is a cultural boycott of Israel justified, and how effective are such protests?

US fetal ‘heartbeat bills’
In the US, at least 15 states including Georgia, Ohio and Alabama have introduced bills that would ban women from having abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected at around six weeks. Alabama’s proposed legislation would also ban abortions in cases of rape and incest. The wave of “heartbeat bills”, which are likely to be challenged in court, is seen as one more step toward a now-conservative US Supreme Court eventually overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade case that establishes the right to abortion access in the US.

If every Muslim country stop business with China and ban Chinese products,if they cut all deplometic relationship with China then I think Chinese economy will collapse and China will bow down to Muslim countries……if China is not guilty then why they are not allowing foreign media to Xin Xi'an……….

Chinese lock and kill Uighurs turk.
Because of the land and the Uighur genocide has nothing to do with Islam.
Uighurs have own land and language and culture.
Uighur land Eastern Turkistan aka Xinjiang is occupied by Chinese.
For the past 20 year Chinese government immigrated more than 30 million Chinese and made Uighurs minorities in their own land.
Chinese do not touch and kill
Hui Chinese Muslim, because hui Chinese are Chinese and have the same land, language and culture.
Hui are not threat to one China.
Hui fast,go to mecca,and mosques, they have all rights as Chinese.
