Police officers in China gather for a public display of force.
The new law comes after a string of terrorist attacks committed by Muslims in China. Pictured above: Chinese police gather in a show of force.

A Muslim baby in China

As part of a crackdown on religious extremism, the Chinese government has declared that parents will no longer be allowed to give their children Muslim names. Names such as Muhammad, Jihad, Mecca, and Saddam are now prohibited a step officials say was necessary to avoid "exaggerating religious fervor" in the country.

Published under the sinister title of "Naming Rules for Ethnic Minorities", the full list includes over two dozen banned names. News of the policy shocked Islamic faith leaders as well as advocates for religious freedom everywhere. In addition to Muslim names, beards and veils have also been banned in public.

Chinese officials are standing by their decision, promising punishments for those who disobey. Anyone who refuses to comply with the new policy risks fines and reductions in essential services like education and healthcare.

**Muslim Community Feels the Heat


China's Muslim population is primarily comprised of Uyghurs, an ethnic group with Turkish roots. Dilxat Raxit, a spokesman for the World Uyghur Congress, explains that, "China's policies are increasingly hostile" and "Uyghur people have to be cautious if they want to give their children names they are happy with, and at the same time avoid punishment from the government."

Further complicating things is a string of recent terrorist attacks committed by people of Uyghur descent. A mass-stabbing back in 2014 took the lives of 29 and injured another 130. More recently, a local politician was stabbed to death in broad daylight. The attacks have helped to cement public opinion in favor of strict anti-Muslim policies.

But Muslims are not the only religious group under fire in China.

China Criminalizes Christianity

Christians in China display their Bibles.
Chinese Christians defiantly display their Bibles in public.

Taiwanese pastor Xu Rongzhang was detained by law enforcement for singing the worship song "Jesus Loves You" during an Easter visit to mainland China. Local officials assert that the Christian pastor was detained for "illegal religious activity", which is prohibited.

Rongzhang was taken into police custody after leading a group of Christians in Zhengzhou in song. Although he was later released, not all Chinese Christians have been so lucky. In recent months, several religious leaders have been arrested on similar charges and sentenced to jail time.

One particularly severe case involved a group of five Christians, including a pastor, who were arrested back in February. The individuals were sentenced to between 3-7 years in jail for proliferating what Chinese authorities called "forbidden Christian devotional books."

A War on Religion?

Religious persecution is by no means a new occurrence in China; officials in the United States have long cautioned about crackdowns on religious freedom in the country. However, the fact that these crackdowns have ramped up in recent years is concerning. China's communist government has never been friendly to religion, but a turbulent political situation could lead to further religious persecution.

Do you agree with the Muslim name ban? Is banning things an effective way to combat religious extremism?

        Like obama was not an idiot. And hilary is not the anti chirst, she ruined the economy during her husband rein as idiot in the white house with NAFTA. She has done nothing but lie and use her power to cover up felony crimes. Yet you are stupid enough to support her and ignore her crimes against humanity. Start thinking for yourself, open your eyes. Stop being sheep for the idiots that can't even tell us the same reason for the rally they are attending.By the way before Obama care, American could go to a non private hospital, get an operation, and not worry if they were insured. No you get asked what insurance and how will you pay for that which is not covered. Before if you did not have the money to pay or could not pay after the fact, the government covered it. Now if you don't have enough coverage you get turned away, and you are forced to pay for insurance for a god giving right to live or get fined. It s not like auto insurance which is for the privilege to drive a car. Take your stupidity to a place like antifa or the Feminazi web pages to find people that agree with you. Over half the country did not If you don't count all the protectorate countries that are not Americans but are allowed to vote. Yeah. voters in Puerto Rico, Guam, and 14 others get to vote in our elections while never paying taxes or being american citizens. So screw odd on you she gad more votes they were in in the 50 states but only after protectorate countries votes were counted. Which by the way only started being counted after a bill passed in Clinton's admin while he was getting sucked off in the oval office.

          I wish to add a comment just to make sure that History is preserved with out prejudiced or error. I want to make it clear I did not vote for either Clinton or Trump in this election so I am not aligned with any party. I am first and foremost a human being and an American.

          NAFTA was President Reagan;s "proudest accomplishment", According to historians, Yes Clinton signed it but it was an idea, a trade deal Reagan and Bush worked to promote for years. It was supported by both parties.
          AHCA known as Obama care did not change the law that if you need health care and go to any hospital they can not deny you treatment due to your inability to pay or for any other reason for that matter.. On the back of every hospital bill there is a form which if filled out by the person who;s name is on the bill gives low income families reduced cost or free care. One of the leading causes of foreclosure and loss of homes from the 50's to 2000 was due to Medical bills . this was long before Obama was in office. Every year Tax payers pay for millions of uninsured people to have medical treatment via Medicaid. Many have jobs which pay "off the record or under the table" so thy can qualify for medical cards, food stamps and or public assistance. Even more simply refuse to work . Many are able bodied, healthy, young people. But tax payers pay for their care. We pay millions of dollars every year and they pay nothing. It is the people who can pay a small amount for coverage that now have health care that did not have it before. The are now off of Medicaid. Tax payers no longer cover their Healthcare.Literally Millions of people are now off of Medicaid, Millions more don't have to choose between loosing their home or being ill. As for the Electoral College which elects our president ... Donald Trump stated it was an obsolete and unfair process. He stated it should be abolished. It was not the popular vote that elected President Trump. It was the Electoral College vote. Even he feels it is the wrong way to have an election. Only United States citizens are permitted to vote in the USA elections . Puerto Ricio's people are US citizens and pay Federal US taxes. Puerto Rico contributes more soldiers to the U.S. armed services per capita than any state. Between 2006 and 2013, every state legislature in the nation has considered a National Popular Vote bill. Ten states and the District of Columbia have enacted NPV bills, and governors in three states have vetoed NPV bills. In 12 states, an NPV bill has passed one chamber of the legislature. The media keeps track of the popular vote because people enjoy the horse-race aspect. Bill Clinton really had had nothing to do with the popular votes being "counted". It really became an issue when Bush was declared president by the Supreme Court even though Gore had more popular Votes. We are Americans first and we need to begin to compromise and start to heal our Nation. All Presidents are simply men. All men have their faults and failings. None is with out promise and none is with out problems. There is NO PERFECT HUMAN and that is all they are after all HUMAN BEINGS. We should all open our heart more than we open our mouth.

            @BGOLD an internet search quickly disproved your Reagan theory and I quote;" Whose idea was it? It was first proposed by President George Bush and Mexican President Carlos Salinas de Gortari in June as "a powerful engine for economic development, creating new jobs and opening new markets" in both countries.

            I guess we can find what ever we want on this but I actually did watch it happen.

            NAFTA Beginnings

            The impetus for NAFTA actually began with President Ronald Reagan, who campaigned on a North American common market. In 1984, Congress passed the Trade and Tariff Act. This is important because it gave the President "fast-track" authority to negotiate free trade agreements, while only allowing Congress the ability to approve or disapprove, not change negotiating points. Canadian Prime Minister Mulroney agreed with Reagan to begin negotiations for the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, which was signed in 1988, went into effect in 1989 and is now suspended due to NAFTA. (Source: NaFina, NAFTA Timeline)

            Regan’s successor, President H.W. Bush, began negotiations with Mexican President Salinas for a liberalized trade agreement between the two countries. Before NAFTA, Mexican tariffs on U.S. imports were 250 percent higher than U.S. tariffs on Mexican imports.

            In 1991, Canada requested a trilateral agreement, which then led to NAFTA. In 1993, concerns about the liberalization of labor and environmental regulations led to the adoption of two addendums.

            In 1992, NAFTA was signed by President George H.W. Bush, Mexican President Salinas and Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.

            It was ratified by the legislatures of the three countries 1993. The U.S. House of Representatives approved it by 234 to 200 on November 17, 1993. The U.S. Senate approved it by 60 to 38 on November 20, three days later.

            Well, I went to your source page it it merely says the "The impetus for NAFTA began with President Ronald Reagan"....not it started with him. That's like saying Obama care started with Reagan because he started the "welfare phone" program otherwise known as "Obama phones. You said; NAFTA was President Reagan;s “proudest accomplishment”, when in fact it wasn't....stop quoting fake news and focus on facts. Under what President was the NAFTA treaty negotiated and ratified...that would be the factual starting date...not if Reagan thought about it, or if Kennedy talked to Mexico's president's first cousin about trade......this is why so many American's don't have a clue about what's going on.....to many people trying to point fingers at each other. BTW, that is just this person's opinion( the writer of the article you quoted).......and anytime you quote an opinion as fact you are misleading people. That is the bread and butter of liberals....twist something someone said to make the point you want. BTW, Obama care doubled my premiums and caused me to drop coverage. ANY government that taxes you if you don't buy a product is criminal. It was the worse piece of garbage ever shoved down the throats of Americas in the history of our once great nation. Our nations taxes are at an all time high, wages are at an all time low, our deficit is over 19trillion in secured debt and 89 trillion in unsecured debt and we are circling the drain......but Russia, who liberals and neocons keep calling the enemy, have only a 13% flat tax, and have the second largest military on earth, free college, free healthcare, and little debt. As Margaret Thatcher once said; " the problem with socialism is eventually you run out of other peoples money".

            My comment was not meant to mislead anyone. I responded to the comment made suggesting that Clinton was the President who was responsible for NAFTA. We both clearly know that was not the case.

            We agree that it does state “The impetus for NAFTA began with President Ronald Reagan” Now let's look at the definition of impetus shall we.

            im·pe·tus ˈimpədəs/ noun the force or energy with which a body moves.

            the force that makes something happen or happen more quickly. plural noun: impetuses

            There are literally dozens of sites all stating that Ronald Reagan was where the impetus for NAFTA began.

            http://www.heritage.org/trade/report/the-north-american-free-trade-agreement-ronald-reagans-vision-realized https://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/reagan-embraced-free-trade-immigration The start of NAFTA: Reagan The starting point for NAFTA actually began with President Ronald Regan. In 1979, while officially declaring his candidacy for President, Ronald Reagan proposes a “North American Agreement” which he said, will produce “a North American continent in which the goods and people of the three countries will cross boundaries more freely.”

            I am not sure why that upsets you but evidently you feel NAFTA is not good and Reagan was so he could not be the one who was the impetus for, supported and praised the idea of it. It has been stated by reliable sources that this was one of Reagan's proudest accomplishments. . So you may want to do more research or not its up to you. I remember Ronald Reagan's position very well.

            As far as your heath care. I am sorry that happened to you. I was diagnosed with cancer and could not get any Health care insurance for 10 years after that due to the preexisting condition clause in all policies at that time. When the 10 years passed my insurance was 1190.00 per month for single coverage, no doctors visits , no prescription and 5000.00 deductible. This was before the AHCA was introduced so premiums for many of us were already obscene long before that. We need to blame insurance companies for raising premiums.How much profit does and industry need to make at the cost of people's lives?



            Now I am not suggesting that I think the AHCA as it is currently is absolutely fine , but for many Americans it has been life saving. Can we go back to letting people... children die because an insurance company does't consider them a profitable client? I think not. You and your family are lucky that you have never been faced with the choice between a child's health and your home. The choice between surgery and then bankruptcy (losing your home and everything else) or being paralyzed for the rest of your life. Rising premiums are caused by greed not the AHCA.

            Perhaps you should move to Russia, I am pretty sure the option is open for those who wish ti relocate there..

            We have a lot of problems but so far no solutions..... none proven anyway. If you believe any one political party will save us well then I think you need to revisit History again.

      So, the Christianity that now teaches, in opposition to what Jesus taught, that accumulating riches is blessing from God, is a religion? So the Christianity that spawned the Spanish Inquisition and sanctioned the slaughter of indigenous peoples throughout the world while preaching "thou shalt not kill" and "love your neighbor as yourself" is a religion? So the Christianity that endorsed slavery and misused the Bible to support chattel slavery, Jim Crow, apartheid and racial superiority in spite of the Bible saying "And God created from one man every nation of men" is a religion? By your figuring, I guess it's not either.

      In all of the worlds religions, loving each other is universal, except with the cult of Islam. There are hundreds of verses that preach hate and death to all non-muslims.While all Muslims are not terrorists, by giving tacit approval of their actions, they do support it. I once asked a Muslim about what he thought of what they did to the artists who did a cartoon about Muhammad...he quickly said he deserved it. As was once said by a great man, "for evil to flourish, all it takes is for good men to stand by and do nothing". I have traveled the world and lived in the Middle East....Islam is not a religion, but a cult that demands total submission. The very word Islam means "submission". China is wrong in denying religion, but do not be confused about Islam. BTW, a historic tid bit.....America's first foreign military action was against the Islamic caliphate of Tripoli. They were attacking our ships and when we sent an emissary to ask why, he said " it was their duty to kill the infidel". Nothing has changed in the approximate 1500 years Islam has been around.

          @C Williams First I must say that vulgarity is the first response of the ignorant. Please state your argument in English and refrain from cursing....it just makes you look stupid. Secondly, China Did have a 1 child rule. I quote;" The one-child policy, a part of the family planning policy, was a population planning policy of China. It was introduced in 1979 and began to be formally phased out in 2015. The policy allowed many exceptions and ethnic minorities were exempt. For example in 2007, 36% of China's population was subject to a strict one-child restriction, with an additional 53% being allowed to have a second child if the first child was a girl. Provincial governments imposed fines for violations, and the local and national governments created commissions to raise awareness and carry out registration and inspection work." Wikipedia It was my understanding that the government only paid for the first child and as long as you paid for it and the extra food and medical it was allowed, but I am just repeating what I heard from a Chinese guy I knew in college. I did not research this.

    Here's another issue that should be left alone. Some Islamic countries won't even allow other religions to practice in their countries. All this negative attention only fuels the flames of controversy. Rather than nit-pick about things like this, people need to at least try to live in peace and stop trying to tell everyone else what to do. As for this particular ban, I'm not entirely against it. If everyone has the same name, it gets confusing. It's like "Darryl, Darryl, and my other brother, Darryl."
    As for you people who attack everyone who makes a comment that doesn't fit with your beliefs, get over it. Not everyone is going to agree with you and nobody is right or wrong.

      All too often Americans display their ignorance of other people by their attitudes and statements. You obviously have no knowledge of the ultra Orthodox Jewish Hasidim who often have similar names, or of Hindus who often share a surname. You really don't have any idea why but assume that it's just a fad or a trend. Yet, China has had a long history of persecuting ALL religions and imprisoning ANYONE who does not support the party line. (Sound familiar). It is true some Islamic countries won't permit the establishment of other religions in their countries. Often when evangelists bring their religion they also bring their bigotry and prejudices. Christians brought apartheid and chattel slavery to Africa, forced conversion to the Americas and contributed to the decimation of the native peoples of North America. Why would I bring someone who would want to destroy my culture?

    when you start calling hate for anyone who does not believe the same as you religion, you gt holy crusades. Hitler was called a leader in his country but he and other in his country looked at their beliefs as a religion. It was hate pure and simple of other people who believed different then them. In the Quran the death of all how do not believe or will not convert is a commandment. This is not a religion it is a world wide hate group. It needs to be remove from all countries that it poses a threat to the citizens within. In america everyday it poses an ongoing threat, beside the radicals on 9/11. But our only choices are to allow them the freedom to worship or kick them all out. If Islam does not stop the radicals infecting their ranks, pushing the hate they will find out what it is like to be on the wrong side of a holy war. These people in Islam pushing their beliefs on others are as bad as Nazi's. Hopefully people see the light before we have to no choice but another war.

    @james pero.....wow, are you confused. Abraham was NOT the father of Islam "Moslem" or Hindu, he was Jewish. Mohammad was born in the 6th century and he created the cult of Islam by calling himself a "prophet". He took the name of a pagan goddess worshiped in the area, some old Jewish texts and threw in some of his own ideas and put it all together. ANY so called religion that teaches hate, and calls for the death or conversion of everyone is NOT a religion, but a cult. BTW, Moslem or Muslim and Islam are the same thing. Hinduism is as old if not older than Judism, with books from 2600 BC. The one major tenet ALL religions have is peace and love each other......it is a universal understanding.
