Muslims have been in China for the last 1,400 years, and have interacted with Chinese society.[1] Muslims live in every region in China.[2] Various sources estimate different numbers of Muslims in China. Some sources indicate 2% of the total population in China are Muslims.[3] Xinjiang in the northwest is the province with most Muslims.[4]
