XINJIANG: LINKED RELIGIOUS PRACTICE AND STATE CONTROL LEVELS?
http://www.forum18.org/Archive.php?article_id=428 
China maintains few controls on religious life in the mountainous Altai
[Altay] region in the far north of Xinjiang, Forum 18 News Service has
noted, apparently because there are only low levels of Islamic,
Buddhist, Pagan, Orthodox and Pentecostal Christian religious practice
among the majority ethnic Kazakhs, as well as among Chinese and most
other local minorities. In contrast, Forum 18 has observed strict
controls in nearby mosques amongst the Muslim Dungan people, and the
visit of a Russian Orthodox priest, Fr Vianor Ivanov, was met by the
authorities arresting him, as well as questioning virtually all the
several dozen elderly Orthodox believers in the city Fr Ivanov visited,
before deporting him.
