PostSubject: Chinese official demoted 'for not smoking in front of Muslims'    Wed Apr 12, 2017 12:03 am

A Chinese official who allegedly declined to smoke in front of Muslims in Xinjiang has been demoted for taking an "unstable political stance," a state-run newspaper reported Tuesday.



Xinjiang, home to China's Muslim Uighur ethnic minority, restricts religious practises -- such as growing beards, wearing headscarves, and fasting during Ramadan -- that are seen as symbols of "Islamic extremism".

A notice from the Hotan district government over the weekend accused Jelil Matniyaz, a village-level secretary for the ruling Communist party in the far-western region, of being afraid to smoke before religious figures.

"His behaviour of 'not daring' to smoke conforms with extreme religious thought in Xinjiang," a local official told the Global Times newspaper.

He added that a dutiful party member would choose to smoke in front of religious believers in order to demonstrate his or her commitment to secularism.
