Hui pan-nationalism

Hui pan-nationalism refers to the post-1949 phenomenon of a sense of common nationhood kindled among diverse communities of Chinese-speaking Muslims, due to the dialectics between the Hui nationality designation by the Communist government and the process of modernization of traditional Muslim Chinese groups and individuals.

Hui pan-nationalism should be distinguished from nationalist sentiments by Chinese groups who are also Muslim such as those of the Uighurs.
