Beijing bans all Muslim symbols at halal eateries

As part of a national exercise to ‘Sinicise’ its Muslim population, authorities in Beijing have ordered halal restaurants and food stalls to remove Arabic script and symbols associated with Islam from their signs.

The campaign against Arabic script and Islamic images marks a new phase of a drive that has gained momentum since 2016, aimed at ensuring religions conform with mainstream Chinese culture. China, home to 20 million Muslims, guarantees freedom of religion, but the government has campaigned to bring them in line with Communist Party ideology.
