Bet you were only there as a tourist. Offcourse, you only saw what China wants to present Xinkiang to the world.
Suggest you talk to local people, and special those living in south part of Xinkiang next time when you are there.
Yes, every religion calls for peace and harmony, but what if you can not pratice your relligion freely, and you are discriminated just because you are a muslim. As a chinese muslim, good for you, you are not practicing your religion there.
I have visited Uighur and non-Uighur Mosques in the mainland.  I did not see any evidence that Muslims in China cannot practice their religion.  I declared I was a Muslim to the government with no trouble.

I have even prayed at some of the Mosques without any trouble.  There are also Halal restaurants everywhere, from Shenzhen, Shanghai and Beijing.  Some of the best restaurants are run by Uighur's, so this is why I don't understand why people say Islam is oppressed in China.

I see Islam being more oppressed here in Canada and other countries.  In Shenzhen they built a large Mosque and approval was not difficult to get from the government.

Some of the oldest Mosques in the world exist in China.  And China has always protected and preserved them from ancient to present times.

Uighur's are allowed to practice Islam freely, I saw this in the mainland myself, from their restaurants, hotels and Mosques, just as Hui Muslims have the same rights.

I also know in Uighur's do not have to follow the "one child policy", this is a generous and unusual exception to China's population control.

Then there are the claims of Rebiya Kadeer which Amnesty Intl contradicts, further, she is linked to a foreign terrorist group.

    Facts About Islam

    Muslims Don't Have A Different God

    Many people think Muslims believe in their own god called "Allah" but the literal translation is just "God".  Muslims believe there is one god and one true creator and that it is the very same god the Christians and Jews believe in.
