BEIJING, Aug. 16 -- Education and training centers in Xinjiang never interfere in the trainees' freedom of religious belief nor make any attempts to have the trainees change their religious beliefs, said a white paper published Friday.

As trainees have fallen under the influence and control of religious extremism to a greater or lesser extent, the centers integrate deradicalization into the whole process of education and training, according to the white paper, titled Vocational Education and Training in Xinjiang, published by the State Council Information Office.

Through step-by-step teaching of laws and regulations, policies on ethnic and religious affairs, and religious knowledge, and by exposing the damage caused by terrorism and religious extremism, the centers give trainees a full and accurate understanding of the national policy of freedom of religious belief, the white paper said.

In order to rehabilitate the trainees, these courses teach the trainees to distinguish between lawful and unlawful religious activities, understand how religious extremism runs counter to religious doctrine, and realize the evil nature and serious harm of terrorism and religious extremism, so that they can eventually break free from the influence and control of terrorism and religious extremism, the document said.
