(BREITBART) In a new set of education rules, the Chinese Communist Party is urging citizens to spy on their neighbors and report parents who raise their children in a religious faith or have them attend religious services.
In the northwestern region of Xinjiang, the government released the new education norms on Wednesday, with special emphasis on religious formation, according to the U.S.-based human rights group China Aid.
The new rules, which will go into effect on November 1, stipulate that parents cannot “organize, lure or force minors into attending religious activities,” or force them to wear religious dress or symbols. Moreover, they cannot even “tolerate” that children attend “underground scripture studies.”
