A concentrated effort against religion

Uyghur prisonersChina is using a heavy hand to keep Muslims in the country from practicing their religion.

OneNewsNow has reported on the campaign to move observant Uyghur Muslims into what are effectively concentration camps -- one and a half million of them where people are worked long hours, starved, and forbidden to practice their religion.

"Even the people outside of those camps are being persecuted," reports Brynne Lawrence of ChinaAid. "They're being forced to violate the way they eat. You know, Muslims have to eat a very specific diet; many of them choose to. [But] in the market places, shops, Uyghurs will be told to include like pork and stuff into their meat."

Pork is forbidden in the Muslim diet.

Communists also spend a good deal of time checking in on the homes of some Muslim families.

"Mostly it's monitoring the way the people live," Lawrence says. "A lot of them are forced to speak Mandarin instead of their native languages. In some cases, Chinese monitors have been forced to live in the homes of the people."

Any violation of the requirements established for them are reported to Communist officials. Meanwhile, the government has continued its crackdown on Christian churches, especially the underground church -- forcing people to worship their government as much as they worship Almighty God.
