In Response To: China cracks down on Islam (Afsara Sheikh, Beijing)

What exactly is a crackdown on Islam? Islam is about inner life of discipline, humility, kindness, tolerance, peace, harmony, and becoming asset to society. Attention towards serving God and disciplining self doesn’t need physical appearance. But N2I gives Islam an stereotype outward persona, like unkempt beard, burqa, turban, garb, mass ablution at hotel function, group Namaz on streets, airport, showy Muharram procession, Matam, Rabi ul Awal processions in downtown disrupting traffic, mass ritual slaughtering, etc. They create unpopular visuals in non-Muslim countries that risks repression.
