(Forum 18) – Chinese web-users are being denied access to a range of religious sites based abroad, Forum 18 News Service has found after a two-month survey of how far the Chinese government’s Golden Shield firewall used to censor the internet has affected access to religious web content. Sites related to the Dalai Lama, the Falun Gong religious movement, the Muslim Uygurs of Xinjiang and the international Islamist movement Hizb-ut-Tahrir are almost entirely blocked, as are sites covering persecution of religious communities in China and a number of Catholic sites, including the website of the Hong Kong diocese and the Divine Word Missionaries in Taiwan .
