This chapter are how such high levels of violence against members of a minority religious group are justified by those in positions of power in China and how the apparatus of the state is used to effect this violence. It is one thing for a state to allow discriminatory behavior toward minority faiths that are out of step with dominant values and parties in a society. That happens with regularity around the globe. However, when the state itself becomes an instrument of violence toward minority faiths, this demands explanation.
