Authorities ban Islamic first names Chinese province of Xingjiang
Muslims in Xingjiang province had already heavily to endure, however is there now a few extras by the local authorities. Different domestic and foreign media are reporting that the authorities there recently have introduced a very remarkable line. So would people those Islamic names in different ways be banned and/or be hindered in their daily lives. For babies who are born still applies a ban on giving an Islamic name by parents.
One would do this to prevent separatism and extreme religious expressions, reports a responsible within the authorities of the area in front of The Financial Times. Should anyone still want to ignore the rule then he/she can do no claim on a document which entitles to access to education, social care and labor.
Striking is that these measures be imposed only in a province where a large part of the population is Muslim, the Muslim population is about 50% in Xingjiang.
