    China mosque demolition sparks standoff in Ningxia

    Hundreds of Muslims in north-western China are engaged in a standoff with authorities to prevent their mosque from being demolished.

    Officials said the newly built Weizhou Grand Mosque in the Ningxia region had not been given proper building permits.

    But worshippers refused to back down. One resident said they would not "let the government touch the mosque".

    China has a Muslim minority of some 23 million, and Islam has been prominent in Ningxia for centuries.

    But human rights groups say there is increasing official hostility towards Muslims in China, and foreign religious influences in particular.

    The mosque, which has several soaring minarets and domes, is built in a Middle Eastern style.

    For centuries Hui Muslim mosques were built in a more Chinese style, and it appears that the new structure is viewed by the local government as an example of a growing Arabisation of Chinese Islam, the BBC's China correspondent, Stephen McDonell, reports.

    Chinese are always after Muslims and Christians, it's like they're scared of them. Demolishing Churches and Mosques just increases animosity, but try explaining that to the atheist idiots in government

    Atheists aren't a group like the religious who are bound by laws and rules of their respective religions. If someone doesn't believe in the existence of God then one is an atheist, that's it. There are no other connecting factors.

    Anyway, I personally think it is a Communist thing rather than Atheist. Thousands of priests were imprisoned, killed etc in the Eastern Bloc countries (Iron Curtain) after WW2. I personally know of many such cases from my wife's family side in Romania where priests were killed or imprisoned until they were freed after the revolution.

    China is not driven by Atheism, they are communist, which in political context means rule by doisctorship and Censorship.

    China is Pakistan’s new love affair, they are our savior, wonder if we would dare ask about treatment of Muslims, which we do love and care so much, if done by anybody else other than Saudis and China

    The first viewpoint is its their country, their rules. The issue with this is obvious, because there may be gross violations of human rights such as in Saudi Arabia.

    The second view point is, there has to be some degree of standards which the global community sets when it comes to human rights, and that every country must be expected to abide by these standards. The only issue being that it is usually the Western countries setting these standards, and expect everyone to conform to their ideals, which doesn't work in all cases as there are cultures and traditions that have been in place for hundreds of years and they cant be expected to become westernized by force.

    What the trend is that powerful countries, or those countries that are allied with powerful countries are not criticized. While only countries like Pakistan, Iran, etc... countries that are diplomatically isolated are the most criticized.

    WEIZHOU: Authorities in northern China delayed the demolition of a large mosque on Saturday after thousands of people demonstrated to stop its destruction, local residents said, amid a nationwide government drive to tighten restrictions on religious activities.

    Across China, officials have sought to limit religious freedoms for Muslims as part of a widespread attempt to bring believers in line with the dictates of the ruling Communist Party.

    Protesters began gathering on Thursday ahead of a deadline to demolish the grand mosque in the town of Weizhou in the northern Ningxia region, locals said.


    Videos posted on social media in recent days showed protesters gathering in front of the building as police with riot shields stood by.

    Holding Chinese flags, they sat quietly on the building’s steps and milled around a large plaza, before heading to Friday night prayers, according to the videos.

    “The government said it’s an illegal building, but it’s not. The mosque has several hundred years of history,” a restaurant owner surnamed Ma said.

    Around noon on Saturday, a local official had read a document, saying that the government would hold off on the mosque’s demolition.

    After that, many who had participated in the sit-in dispersed.

    People had come hundreds of kilometres from other Muslim regions to show support and bring food to those in Weizhou, locals said.

    Hundreds of security forces had at one point been brought in on civilian buses to secure a perimeter around the area, not allowing outsiders in.

    Internet and 4G mobile phone service had been cut off to the area, resuming only some 14 kilometres away from Weizhou though residents could still make phone calls.

    On Saturday evening, a few dozen people sat on folded stools or leaned against their motorbikes in another neighbourhood away from the mosque, watching a movie projected onto a cement wall near a petrol station.

    Police cars occasionally drove past, lights flashing, but it was otherwise peaceful.

    “They told us the internet was down because of recent rains, but does that really make sense?” said a young man straddling his bike.

    “They are afraid of us spreading videos,” he said.

    Islam is one of five officially recognised religions in China, home to some 23 million Muslims.

    Pressure has been building on the community in recent months as the Communist party moves to tighten the reins on religious expression.

    China’s top leaders recently called for the “Sinicisation” of religious practice — bringing it in line with “traditional” Chinese values and culture — and new regulations on religious affairs came into effect in February, sparking concern among rights groups.

    The measures increased state supervision of religion in a bid to “block extremism”, and in areas with significant Muslim populations, authorities have removed Islamic symbols, such as crescents, from public spaces.

    In the far western region of Xinjiang, things have gone much farther, with Muslims being harshly punished for violating regulations banning beards and burqas.

    who has ever said that atheists are tolerant? history of the world shows that no single group has killed more humans than atheists and its not even close; so who in his right mind would say atheists are tolerant? atheists by definition dont believe that they will be held responsible of their actions in after-life as they dont even believe in after-life so it makes absolute sense that they would be the most intolerant of all humans

    Thats right bro.
    Look at the history of these evil atheist empires in 20th century. All killing in the name for their degenerate ideology.
    Atheists are cancer on this Earth.
    As you rightly said since they don't believe in afterlife, they have no concept of morality and thus are able to justify any action they want.

    Pakistan is a self styled modern Islamic state, not a theocracy as such. Otherwise it would be like the Taliban or ISIS that don't believe in borders and would be sending maulvis to convert the rest of the Chinese instead of diplomats.
