China and its conduct with its own Muslim minority group Uyghurs, has been creating a lot of headlines in recent times.

International scrutiny and concern over China-Uyghurs have been raised for a few months now. The UN is getting involved but the Muslim countries remain silent.

Last year, China also made headlines for not allowing its Muslim citizens to perform fast during Ramadan.

The Communist Party of China is looking at the Muslim-minorities as separatists and thus a threat to its unity.
