China’s genocidal government, which has spent much of the past decade forcibly programming Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang province to abandon their religion and worship communism instead, gave Sweden on Wednesday a lecture on respecting the religious beliefs of Muslims after a Swedish politician burned a copy. of the Koran.
China has transformed the homeland of the Uyghurs into a State-of-the-art high-tech monitoringrounded up millions of them into brutal concentration camps so huge they can be seen from orbit, and used physical and psychological torture to erase their supposedly dangerous religious beliefs.
Among other tactics, captive Uyghurs are strength eating pork and drinking alcoholic beverages, which is forbidden by their religion. Uyghurs are forced to watch as Chinese authorities systematically violate Islamic customs in their lands, such as the dawn-to-dusk fasting of the currently ongoing Ramadan holiday, a practice the Chinese state has classified as a “sign of extremism”.
Camp survivors repeatedly testified that “deprogramming” Uighurs of their religion and brainwashing them into obedient communists is a major goal of the camp administrators. Chinese government documents leak in 2019 confirmed these efforts to eradicate Uyghur culture and religion.
China also implements far more restrictive immigration policies than most Western states, has a history of treating immigrants poorly, and adamantly refuses to take in refugees.
Opportunistic Chinese officials nonetheless seek every opportunity to harangue other nations as intolerant or Islamophobic, in part to keep their Islamic client states to dwell on what is happening in Xinjiang.
Such an opportunity arose in Sweden last week when politician Rasmus Paludan – who, unlike concentration camps in Xinjiang, cannot normally be seen from orbit – live-streamed the burning of a Quran and said he planned to start burning the books at his political rallies. .
Paludan is the Danish-Swedish leader of a Danish band which is actually called himself the “hard line party”. They are fiercely opposed to immigration, especially from Muslim countries.
Paludan fire a Quran in a Facebook live stream last Thursday and announced that he would tour Sweden, burning a copy of the Muslim religious text in every city he visited. He did so on Friday and Saturday, sparking counter-protests that quickly turned violent, which is exactly what he wanted.
After its third stage in Sweden, Paludan canceled the rest of his tour, complaining that the Swedish police were “completely unable to protect themselves and me”.
“We have already seen violent riots. But that’s something else. These are serious acts of violence against life and property, in particular against the police. This is very worrying and we will take strong countermeasures. This should not continue,” Swedish National Police Chief Anders Thornberg said after making dozens of arrests and counting at least 40 police officers and civilians injured.
Several Muslim governments sentenced Paludan for his burning of the Koran, notably in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Qatar and Turkey.
“We condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the attacks and provocations against Muslims, against Islam, against the Quran and against places of worship in different parts of the world during the holy month of Ramadan. The recent attacks against the holy book of Islam in Sweden show that no lessons have been learned from the past,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement. statement Monday.
“In Sweden, people have the right to express their opinions, whether they are in good or bad taste; it is part of our democracy. No matter what you think, you should never resort to violence. We do not accept it and will never accept it,” insisted Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson.
After spending the weekend mutually confirming their worst suspicions of each other, the last thing anyone in the Swedish fiasco needed was advice from genocidal China, but they got it anyway on Wednesday from the door. -Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin.
“China always opposes extreme behaviors of attacking different religious beliefs and provoking conflicts between civilizations,” Wang said with remarkable nerve.
“Freedom of expression should not be used as an excuse to incite racial or cultural discrimination and create divisions in society. No civilization is superior to the others. They differ only in their characteristics and geographical distribution. We advocate replacing the clash of civilizations with the exchange of civilizations. We oppose discriminatory rhetoric against certain religions and civilizations,” he said.
“It is hoped that Sweden will learn from the issue and sincerely respect the religious beliefs of Muslims and other minority groups, protect their legitimate rights and interests, and live up to its words of respecting and protecting freedom of religious belief through actions. “, did he declare. concluded, depleting China’s strategic national reserve of hypocrisy.
