After Uighurs, China cracking down on another mainly-Muslim ethnic group

China has brought in new measures subjugating yet another Muslim ethnic group, the Utsuls, as the country continues to surveil and detain Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang. The Utsuls, a group of around 10,000 who reside in Sanya, are predominantly Muslim. Last month, Chinese Community Party issued an order banning traditional Utsul dress — the hijab and a long skirt — in schools and government buildings.

Among the new regulations are requirements for new mosques to be smaller, a vaguely-worded ban on buildings with “Arabic tendencies,” a ban on Arabic script on shop fronts, and a ban on placing the Mandarin characters for “halal” and “Islamic” on premises, the Post reported.
