China is planning to enhance "patriotic education" in schools, universities, and religious institutions, including in Hong Kong, to strengthen loyalty to the Chinese Communist Party and President Xi Jinping. A second draft of the "Patriotic Education Law" has been submitted for review, which includes targeting religious clergy and believers, and aims to promote identification with Chinese culture and the party. The law is likely to pass and could result in more patriotic propaganda in various institutions, including places of worship. Critics argue that the move is an attempt to brainwash and control the population.
