    Suleyman, Sultan

    (d. 1873 )

    Also known as Du Wenxiu. Led a Hui rebellion against the Chinese state in the southern Chinese province of Yunnan, near the Burmese border, in 1855 , seeking independence for a new Muslim state, “the state that pacifies the south” (Pingnan Guo). The revolt represented an assertion of identity separate and distinct from that of the Chinese imperial administration and combined vigorous activism with self-assertion on the part of Hui Muslims, who previously had been more adaptationist in their approach. The movement may have had ties to earlier Naqshbandi revivalist movements in northwest China. The state he founded lasted until 1873 , when it was crushed by Qing troops.
