Kara Miriam Abramson, Advocacy Director for the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, which monitors human rights and the rule of law in China, says Uighur religious practices probably would be opposed by al-Qaida, but make the group a target of the Chinese government.
"The Chinese government has been so vigorous in painting the Uighurs as extremists and people who engaged in illegal religious activity -- and basically that can mean anything outside of the tightly controlled narrow space for state-approved, Chinese-government, state approved religious activity, including say holding unauthorized religious classes for children -- this is what gets painted as an illegal religious activity or can be described as extremism," he said.
