China plans to rewrite all translated “classic religious books” to reflect the socialist values of the Communist Party of China. The order was given during a meeting in November that was organized by the Committee for Ethnic Affairs, which is responsible for all religious matters of the country.
While not directly referring to the Quran and the Bible, the committee plans a comprehensive review of the religious texts, which allegedly “do not conform to the progress of the times” and need to be fitted to the “era of President Xi Jinping.”
The reviewed editions of the text – sutras from Buddhism included – should not be against the principles of the Communist Party and will either be changed or re-translated by state-appointed censors.
In the meeting, a group of experts and representatives gathered to be told that they would need to follow President Xi’s order to interpret their beliefs in accordance with “the core values of Socialism,” Xinhua News Agency reported.

This move comes amid the crackdown on the Muslim Uighur’s that are held in so-called re-education centers. Up to 1 million people have been incarcerated in these centers, according to U.S. officials and U.N. experts. Beijing initially denied the existence of the camps in Xinjiang, but now says they are “vocational training centers” necessary to combat terrorism.

Muslims can be successful citizens of different countries only if their scripture can be understood in line with the ethos of government of those countries and the Quran is not read as fundamentally opposed to the key values of those countries.
I see no contradiction between the American values before Trumpism or European values, and the holy Quran.
I have gathered numerous articles for more contemporary understanding of the scripture, stressing the themes of universal brotherhood and sisterhood and compassion and justice rather than dogma:
Some scholars follow the God’s order TO KILL others as following:
Fight / kill those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger nor, acknowledge the Religion of Truth from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.Q.9: (29)
As long as that verse above is not rejected by Islamic scholars ( Saudi or Al Azhar ) there is no peace and killing innocent people will continue.
We as Muslim need to reform Islamic teaching Now

The verse was about defensive war only meant to kill those who are trying to kill you.
Defensive War in the Holy Quran in 600 Words:
The Holy Quran is protected by God Himself. Through the help of written copies, hafizat, and the internet, the original text of the Holy Quran will remain. It is very sad to hear about what is happening to the muslims in China, may Allah give them strength.
China rewriting religious books to reflect the change in the new era is absurd.
The Holy Quran is a complete book and will always be relevant no matter the time period. It is the complete guidance for mankind.
The Holy Quran is the book of Allah and He himself will safeguard it (Ch15:V10). The text of the Holy Quran has remained unchanged over 1500 years and will remain unchanged until the last day.
Those who are doubting the teachings of the Quran have not read it in depth to truly understand its meaning.
Sahih Muslim 33—”I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah”
Sahih Muslim 4366—“ I will expel the Jews and Christian from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim”
Sahih Muslim 6922:—Those who changed his Islamic religion, kill them.
Prophet Muhammad command Muslim to punish and kill : Apostasy, Blasphemer, Homosexual, musrykun and infidel
I strongly urge Islamic Clerics that these Verses are invalid that showing hatred to Chistianity and Jews.
With love ❤️
I agree 100 percent 👍👍👍 to rewrite Al Quran and all 600 defensive and offensive war of verses have to abolished from al Quran. So bad Muslims cannot use war verses to justify their action to kill inFIDEL ( Christian and unbelievers) .
With love ❤️
Somi has long ago given up to listen to the Ahmadiyya interpretation of the Qur’an, where a ‘re-write’ is not required. Whom should we trust to re-write? The Chinese Communists? The American Democrats or rather the Republicans? Or any politicians seeking to be re-elected? Yea, even Somi Tempo might be better than any of those … but anyway, no thank you. We trust our teachers of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at how they can base their motto of ‘Love for All and Hatred for None’ on the teachings of the Qur’an.
