The following photos were taken from a photo essay in the China Daily:
Muslim school girls from St. Maaz high school practise [sic] Chinese wushu martial arts inside the school compound in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad, July 8th 2008. Girls from ages 10-16 participate in weekly sessions during the school terms. (Agencies)
While the photos are two years old, they’re still pretty bad ass. And only prove the Sino-Islamic alliance Huntington predicted. Awesome. Also note that this is not new to the region, as South Indian Muslims commonly engage in learning the various martial arts.
