About This Document
This document issued by the Xinjiang government in 2013 outlines “Educational Management Work Measures for Special Groups,” referring to early re-education measures. It defines 10 types of “special groups,” including parents who “force” their children to be religious, young men with long beards, women who wear veils, and persons who exhibit a form of “religious extremism” Those who remain “stubborn” after repeated re-education efforts were to be designated as “focus persons” and dealt with more severely.
