China Official: Islamists Are Seeking To Ban Laughter At Weddings And Crying At Funerals


“Do not laugh too much, for laughing deadens the heart.” – The Prophet Mohammed, Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2305; Ibn Maajah, 4193.

From what I’ve read in the Qur’an and Hadiths, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if their real intent is to somehow promote laughter at funerals and crying at weddings. Death, after all, is celebrated in Islam. But weddings, on the other hand, in many parts of the Islamic world even make me want to cry …

Reuters – “The governor of China’s restive far western region of Xinjiang wrote on Monday that Islamist militants were trying to ban laughter at weddings and crying at funerals, as he appealed to people to stamp out the ‘tumor’ of extremism.

Xinjiang, resource-rich and strategically located on the borders of central Asia, has been beset by violence for years, blamed by the government on Islamist militants and separatists.

Exiles and many rights groups say the real cause of the unrest is China’s heavy-handed policies, including curbs on Islam and the culture and language of the Muslim Uighur people who call Xinjiang home.

China’s nervousness about Islamist extremism has grown since a car burst into flames on the edge of Beijing’s Tiananmen Square in October, and 29 people were stabbed to death last month in the southwestern city of Kunming.

Beijing blamed Xinjiang militants for both.

Writing in the official Xinjiang Daily, Xinjiang governor Nur Bekri said that acts of terror had been made possible by extremists taking advantage of people’s faith, especially ‘young people who have seen little of the world’.

‘In order to incite fanaticism and control believers, religious extremists have blatantly distorted religious teachings, making up heresy such as ‘jihadist martyrs go to heaven,’ ‘killing a pagan is worth over 10 years of piety,’ and ‘one gets whatever one wants in heaven’,’ he wrote.

‘They use this to bewilder believers into what they believe is ‘jihad’ in the form of suicide terrorist attacks or other violence,’ Bekri added.

People who do not follow the strictures of the Islamists are condemned by them as ‘traitors’ and ‘scum’, he said.” Read more.
