From Linxia, China with Love

Linxia, China also known as “Little Mecca” is home to a large and vibrant Chinese Muslim population.

In the Islam Invulnerable class, we spent some time going over the spread of Islam to China, the revival movements and uprisings, and the oftentimes brutal repression of Muslims by successive Chinese goverments spanning the centuries.

I don’t want to sound like an advertisement for the New York Times but they have another excellent slideshow commentary by Jim Yardley on Muslims in China called Little Mecca.
