Recently the campaign of the religious Sinicization gains momentum in China's political atmosphere. In this new movement after President Xi was endowed his absolute power, Sinicization of Islam seems looking much dramatic in China's changing political environment. What is the background for this new approach? What is the aim of this new deployment in the work of the Communist Party? What is consequence of this political drive upon Islam and Muslim minorities? What is the reaction from the Muslims in China toward this politic and religious policy change? What is the implication of this Sinicization of Islam to the social change in future's Communist county? All these questions are tried to be addressed by this talk from a mainland scholar who engaged in Islamic studies for 30 years.
