AFP via Hong Kong Free Press: China pushes inter-ethnic marriage in Xinjiang assimilation drive

«…it is unlikely that the latest government-backed incentive will change perceptions of Uighurs and Han across ethnic lines, experts say. Though statistics on inter-ethnic marriage in China are scarce, national census data from 2010 shows that both Han and Uighur populations tend to marry within their ethnic group, with only 0.2 percent of Uighurs married to Han people.»

Talk East Turkestan on YouTube: «Uyghur girls are forced to marry Han #Chinese to save their parents from torture.»

His mention to Japan is inaccurate and misleading. Japan’s premodern marriage system is different from the Islamic one under the sharia - the official wife was only one, but keeping multiple secondary wives was allowed. The legal status of the latter was weaker than the former. In the Meiji Era, such a practice was delegitimized and monogamy was established with the introduction of the western-style civil code. The Imperial Household also abolished the traditional system in the Taisho Era.

Many Muslims try to defend Prophet Muhammad against the pedophilia allegation with interpretations of Quran and Hadith. I don’t know whether their argument is historically correct; but anyway, it’s a fact that there is a contradiction between what they say and the practice - why can they claim Islam respects women’s rights, when they praise a man with 22 wives as God’s holy messenger?

Omar-san, Canadian-born muslim man living in Japan, explains about polygamy in Islam.

He also says Prophet Muhammad had many wives to protect widows and divorced women.
