Introduction

Mapping of Islam by province of China according to a survey reported in 2010; there are an estimated 23 million Muslims or 1.7% of the total population.

Islam has been practised in Chinese society for at least 1,400 years. Currently, Muslims are a significant minority group in China, thought to represent 1 to 3% of the total population. Though Hui Muslims are in the majority overall, the greatest concentration of Muslims is in Xinjiang, with the significant Uyghur population there under a concerted state programme of suppression. Lesser but significant populations reside in the regions of Ningxia, Gansu, and Qinghai. Of China's 55 officially recognized minority peoples, ten groups are predominantly Sunni Muslim.

Bai Chongxi
Bai Chongxi (18 March 1893 – 1 December 1966; Chinese: 白崇禧; pinyin: Bái Chóngxǐ; Wade–Giles: Pai Ch'ung-hsi; IPA: [pɑ́ɪ̯ t͡ʂʰʊ́ŋɕǐ]) was a Chinese general in the National Revolutionary Army of the Republic of China (ROC) and a prominent Chinese Nationalist Muslim leader. He was of Hui ethnicity and a follower of Islam. From the mid-1920s to 1949, Bai and his close ally Li Zongren ruled Guangxi province as regional warlords with their own troops and considerable political autonomy. His relationship with Chiang Kai-shek was at various times rivalrous and cooperative. He and Li Zongren supported the anti-Chiang warlord alliance in the Central Plains War in 1930, and then supported Chiang in the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Chinese Civil War. He was the Minister of National Defense of the Republic of China from 1946 to 1948. After losing to the Communists in 1949, Bai fled to Taiwan, where he died in 1966.
