Church in China has religious features forcibly demolished

State orders Yining Catholic Church in Xinjiang region to have its crosses, statues and bell towers pulled down

A church in northwest China’s Xinjiang region had its crosses, statues, bell towers and other religious features demolished by order of communist authorities.

Using a crane, state-instructed workers removed the exterior religious features from the Catholic church of Yining city in Urumqi Diocese on Feb. 27.

A source told ucanews.com that no reason was given for the action but it  is believed to have been carried out because the religious features were “incompatible with sinicization.”
