Deccan Chronicle A Chinese province with large population of Muslims has ordered kindergartens to enforce a ban on religious activity on campus after a video of a little girl reciting the Quran at a nursery school went viral, according to a media report.

The education authority in Gansu province criticized the kindergarten in Linxia where the girl read the Islamic religious text.

The local government said it “strongly condemned the damaging act to the physical and mental health of the younger generation”, Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported on Friday.

The video was titled “Cute girl reciting scriptures in Gansu.” In the video, the unidentified girl is seen wearing a black Muslim head covering and sitting in a classroom with dozens of other students apparently all in Muslim attire. Many people commenting online were angered by the video, the report said.
