Zaid Hamid, a rightwing Pakistani political commentator with almost 310,000 followers on Twitter, posted a placard saying “China, stop eating everything that moves” with the hashtag #coronavirus. Feeding into Islamophobic prejudice, he contrasts Muslim dietary laws under Sharia with Chinese dietary habits. Those making these kind of racist assertions have no idea what 1.4 billion Chinese eat. In particular, they have no idea how the poor eat compared to the bureaucrats & privileged minions of the Chinese Communist Party who run the country. Being rightwing, his proclivities are to demean working people & suck up to state power which is why he blames Chinese dietary habits rather than a public healthcare system which the Chinese regime is too cheap & elitist to create.
