RE-EDUCATION AND DE-RADICALISATION OF RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM? HERE IS THE CHINESE MODEL…

BEIJING, CHINA:

“In a “white paper”, the Chinese government said that

since 2014,

it had destroyed

1,588 terrorist gangs,

arrested 12,995 terrorists, and

punished 30,645 people

for “illegal religious activities”

in the far western region of Xinjiang…

Human Rights groups say,

about 1m people in Xinjiang,

mostly Muslim Uighurs,

have been locked up

for signs of extremism,

such as having big beards,

or praying too much….!”

(THE LONDON ECONOMIST, MARCH 23rd, 2019)
