    This burka thing is a recent phenomenon and not part of Islam.

    In the same way it was not discriminatory to ask Blacks to stand in the back of the bus, because that was their place and station.

    just guessing, but I think it's more about keeping the Uyghur separatists under the boot of the Han Chinese.
    What they do in Tibet also, trying to destroys cultures or religions from their occupations.

    It's so bad in Tibet..

    China Bans Reincarnation Without Government Permission | Humans Are Free

    By barring any Buddhist monk living outside China from seeking reincarnation, the law effectively gives Chinese authorities the power to choose the next Dalai Lama, whose soul, by tradition, is reborn as a new human to continue the work of relieving suffering. -

    China calls it "terrorism", and this was brutal enough to call it that, the Uighur's are in NW China Muslims , and do not want to be part of China
    so there is nationalism involved here too.

    BBC News - European Court upholds French full veil ban

    The French government argues that the ban has wide public support. The authorities see the full-face veil not only as an affront to French secular values but also as a potential security risk, as it conceals a person's identity

    Even more irony...in context this is "progressive".

    Not that long ago it was illegal to practice ANY religion.

    Mormons and born again Christians are a new phenomenon. So what? Who am I to say what another person really believes?

    Re: China bans wearing burqa in biggest Muslim city

    I support face covering bans for non-Muslim majority nations but not for the reasons China gave. To link Muslim face coverings to extremism is wrong and demonizes Muslims. The reason to give is that citizens can't cover face for crime reasons. I can't walk around with a motorbike helmet on because it hides my identity. This is a good enough reason. I think the CPC got this one wrong.

    That is an idiotic statement. China does not ban all forms of expression. What are you even talking about?

    Is China ahead of the curve here? Breaking new ground? Or setting themselves up for more hatred and attacks?

    Would you support burqa bans in your country?
    IMO, I don't think they are breaking new ground. They pulled this kind of stuff before and they are still totalitarian in nature. It wasn't too long ago that the Dalai Lama proclaimed some form of autonomy for Tibet within China that would allow his people to freely practice their culture, language and religion. Many were rounded up and put in prison, some were exiled and many protesters were killed.

    when i was in afghanistan,i was about a 3 hour drive from china,specifically that province,which also borders many muslim countries and russia.it is part of the gobi desert,and even though not heavily populated,is mostly muslim.

    its a bad move for china to tzamper with anything in any religious are,china was the only major comunist block country to allow widespread religious practice,although it was heavily restricted to state control,whereas other comunist block countries outright banned religion,or had an even tighter control on it.

    even being china,i cant see such acts against muslims going far,as much of its western region is muslim,and the region in question could stir up rebels from kazakstan afghanistan uzbekistan kyrgystan etc.
