Oh yes, we have been hearing about the Uighurs (the Muslims in China) who have been agitating and creating civil unrest. It is the pattern for Muslims in non-Muslim countries to impose, agitate, and force Islam on the secular public square. Here are remarks from an Atlas reader living in China:
The Muslims are on the increase in Hong Kong. We have had spates in the past, they have been calling on the government for Muslim holidays, Islamic banks so far falling on death ears (no other ethnic group has done this.) They even protested on a street name in Chinese which they said was derogatory. It is becoming a joke to watch how they are chipping away at our freedom
Recently notices in religious section of the SCMP promoting people to understanding Islam.
Mind you, the article below was the only Chinese newspaper account that reported motive. Here was the typical Chinese news report -- they, too, appear to be adhering to a sharia-compliant standard, save for the below report (and there was nothing in the Western news outlets about it).
The body of a 35-year-old South Asian woman, who was almost decapitated, was washed up on the beach. The body, with deep cuts to the neck, was clothed only in underwear when it was found by an elderly woman on Friday morning...........
Suspect hits death beach The Standard
An asylum seeker from Pakistan, accused of killing his estranged wife because she had lived "against Islamic law," will appear in Kowloon City Magistrates' Court today charged with murder.
A hooded and handcuffed Tahir Nawer, 38, was yesterday lunchtime taken by police to an area near 230 Tung Chau Street where, with the help of an interpreter, the crime was reconstructed.
The group then went to the nearby Tung Chau Street Park and then to a bus stop in Cheung Sha Wan Road. Two hours later they were at a beach near Sham Tseng in the New Territories.
Tahir was remanded in police custody.
The naked body of the woman, 35, was found on Tsing Lung Tau beach on Friday morning. Her throat had been slashed.
Tahir was arrested on Saturday morning, about 19 hours after the body was found.
According to reports, Tahir allegedly told police he gave his wife a drug-laced drink in the park. They then took a 52X bus to Tsing Lung Tau beach near 44 Castle Peak Road.
At the beach he allegedly stripped her to humiliate her, slashed her throat and threw the body on the ground. He buried her belongings behind a bush. In the beach reconstruction, police used a dummy and a mobile phone charger with wire cord attached. The suspect made gestures during which he used the cord to strangle the dummy before using a plastic knife to cut its throat.
According to a source, the suspect is a devoted Muslim who became critical of his wife - a non- believer - who refused to dress in
Muslim garb after the couple arrived in Hong Kong as asylum seekers a few years ago.
They were receiving welfare and lived in a subdivided unit in Nam Cheong Street, Sham Shui Po. They separated after the suspect was accused of beating his wife.
He then became acquainted with a woman from India who he now considers to be his second wife. She gave birth to a girl a month ago.
The suspect is said to have been in constant contact with his estranged wife and became dismayed at the life she was leading.
