List of Mosques converted into public toilets in China?

It is not something new in China, however, the Chinese government transferred 3 million Muslim Uyghurs to re-education camps that are forcing them to abandon Islam and now they have started turning mosques into public toilets.

According to different reports, in the last three years, Beijing itself has destroyed between 10,000 and 15,000 mosques in Xinjiang in the last three years, according to the Uyghur Human Rights Project.

Recently, a mosque located in Xinjiang, the Tokul Mosque was demolished by the China Authority, it was replaced by the construction of a public bath on it. We wish Allah to curse these enemies of our religion.

We are saddened when we share these types of articles and seeing how they demolish a mosque to create public toilets in its place hurts us in the bottom of our hearts. Also, other Muslims would also feel the same after reading this update as others.

Before converting mosques into public baths, the Chinese government actively launched a campaign to eliminate ethnic Muslims from their country.

In Kashgar, most mosques are closed; Muslim cemeteries and shrines disappeared in Khotan. According to research, 65% of places of worship in Xinjiang were damaged as part of a campaign to dilute Uighur culture in China.

Cultural Erasure: Tracking the Destruction of Uyghur and Islamic Areas in Xinjiang According to the Australian Institute for Strategic Policy (ASPI), of the nearly 24,000 mosques in Xinjiang in 2004, about 16,000 to 65% of the total were damaged by the policy. government, most of them since 2017. Of these, 8,500 were completely demolished.

In addition, 30% of important Islamic sites – shrines, schools, cemeteries, parts of Uighur culture and its connection to the land – were also destroyed, and 28% were damaged or altered. A level of liquidation that has not existed since the Cultural Revolution.

In 2019, these authorities destroyed another mosque, known as the Azna Mosque. It was also replaced by a shop selling alcohol, cigarettes and tobacco.

“Muslims living in Xinjiang cannot practice their religion,” Amnesty International said in a recent report, “As if we were an enemy in the war; Mass internment by China, torture and persecution of the Muslim people in Xinjiang.

“The number of Islamic rites that Muslims consider important for their religion and which are not expressly prohibited by law is now banned in practice. Muslims are forbidden to pray, attend mosques, teach religion, wear religious clothes or give their children Islamic names.

As a result of the constant, credible threat of arrest, Xinjiang’s Muslims have changed their behaviour to such an extent that they no longer show outward signs of religion.
