BEIJING (Reuters) – A mostly Muslim county in western China has banned children from attending religious events over a winter break, an education bureau said in a notice posted online, as authorities step up control of religious education.

School students in Linxia county in Gansu province, home to many members of the Muslim Hui ethnic minority, are prohibited from entering religious buildings over their break, a district education bureau said, according to the notification.

Students must also not read scriptures in classes or in religious buildings, the bureau said, adding that all students and teachers should heed the notice and work to strengthen political ideology and propaganda.

Reuters was unable to independently verify the authenticity of the notice.

  1. We know that there is no freedom of religion and expression in China, (Atheist ideology ) as same as Saudi Arabia and Iran. Both are extremist ideology ( Islam and atheist).
    I urge Saudi and Iran to obey Human Right in order China can do the same. Namely Freedom of religion and expression.

    All our ❤️
