There isn't more irritating sound than one coming from mosque's speaker. I rather listen to nails on chalkboard all day.

Call to prayer in the early a.m., like 4:30 or thereabouts. Hated that shit. Blaring out everywhere. Ramadan is a real treat too. Religious police making sure no one consumes anything during daylight hours. No water, no cigarettes, no food... It's a fucking desert and no water is allowed during the hot day in Ramadan.

When China does something that the media and leftist Islam-sympathizers would label “anti-Muslim,” nobody says a word In the latest of many moves by China to disrupt the practice of Islam, with the ultimate goal of eliminating it, Chinese officials are taking down thousands of high-volume amplifiers from hundreds of mosques in the Muslim-majority region of Xinjiang, to stop the loud and offensive Muslim ‘Calls to Prayer’ five times a day.

UK Daily Mail (h/t Christine D)In an ongoing crusade to get Islam out of China, one county has removed loudspeakers from over 300 mosques after getting noise complaints from neighbors about the call to prayer. Other counties are sure to follow. China has already banned Muslim women from wearing Islamic headbags, banned beards on Muslim men younger than 65, forced Muslim shops and restaurants to serve alcohol products, banned fasting on Ramadan for Muslim students and government workers, banned Islamic baby names, and more.

Hualong Hui Autonomous County in China‘s Qinghai province has removed over one thousand loudspeakers over three days. The removal of the call to prayer has angered muslims in the area who have branded the locals as intolerant. It comes as anti-muslim sentiment rises in China and the Chinese government cracks down on people practicing the Islamic faith.

According to a report by state mouthpiece Global Times on August 21, the loudspeakers were removed due to noise complaints. In some areas of China such as Xinjiang, the government has been cracking down on Islamic activities. Now in the province, people under 18 are not allowed to visit the mosque while burqas and ‘Islamic looking’ beards have also been banned.

Peter Irwin, World Uyghur Congress Project Manager told MailOnline: ‘The article tries to show that there is clear support from the local population. Anti-muslim sentiment has been growing in recent years online, so it is of little surprise that it has emerged in this case as well.’ Environmental protection inspectors allegedly received complaints about noise pollution from local mosques.

Residents close to the places of worship have complained that Islamic calls to prayer wake them up early in the morning and they claim in some cases have aggravated heart conditions of some patients. Locals were said to have put their support for the new move in posts online encouraging other governments to do the same.

William Nee, China Researcher at Amnesty International told MailOnline: ‘In China, there are numerous cases where the government is arresting imams on flimsy charges, sending government cadres to people’s homes during Ramadan to ensure they don’t pray and banning outward manifestation of Islamic faith. ‘Seen in this context, it’s highly likely that the move to take down loudspeakers in mosques is a way to ensure Islam literally has a diminished voice in the public square.’

Yep. Moved from Australia only recently to live here with my wife and our son.

Currently in Nanjing, and it is by far the safest place I've ever been. The only thing close to a crime that happened was that someone stole my bicycle a few years ago, but that doesn't happen anymore.

Yep. Humans need property to live and thrive.

Whoever tries to convince you property isn't important is probably thinking of robbing you of your property sooner or later.

true, but also allows society to work against all odds. otherwise, people would simply kill and take given sufficient motivation or manipulation.

laws are the top of our pyramid, socially and consciously. we've already agreed to a third arbiter as means of objectively resolving issues of a humane fashion. thats a huge step, to just take the programming and function day to day, without beating the piss out of people, or running and hiding scared.

we just need a little more time to evolve. america is the baby on the block, growing exponentially, despite what a contemporary narrative through media insinuates. we're just doing some house cleaning right now. but we're going to flatten the planet regarding trade and law, it's inevitable.

but will we choose the cantina, or a federated mess hall for our next century?
