Beijing orders shops: take down all Arabic, Muslim symbols

Aug 01, 2019 18:25 IST

Chinese authorities have ordered all halal restaurants and shops to remove all Muslim and Arabic symbols from their shops and displays. According to Reuters, officials have told them to remove images associated with Islam, such as the crescent moon and the word 'halal' written in Arabic. Critics point out that the order marks a momentum in the government campaign to ensure religions conform to mainstream Chinese culture.
