 +== A Nationalist Writer
 +Nationalist Muslim writer Gai Dainxun 蓋殿勳 wrote prolifically about problems facing Muslim schools during the “War of Resistance” with Japan. Like others, Gai thought that the most pressing problem was a lack of young Muslim teachers who were qualified to teach the nationalist curriculum to Muslim students. This problem was exacerbated by the lack of teacher training facilities for Muslims, who he felt had special needs 
 +such as learning how to integrate Islam into the national curriculum. Gai argued that in order to be successful teachers, Muslims needed a deep understanding of their faith so that they could relate Islam to the development of “ Kangzhan jianguo yu fazhan huimin jiaoyu” the nation. His argument was a framed against the backdrop of the war: for Gai, knowing that the Japanese were working to co-opt Muslims in North China informed the ways that he viewed the place of religious education in the curriculum. Gai urged Muslim teachers to think 
 +about how their religious culture could help China resist Japan through inculcating nationalist sentiment ​
 +among young Muslim minority students.(342)
 +In his view, religious training and religious education went hand-in-hand with the national curriculum. From the perspective of writers like Gai, if Muslim teachers were first armed with a deep and true understanding of 
 +Islam , it would prepare them to apply nationalist principles such as the Three People’s Principles, morality training, technology and skill training, and physical training according to the tenets of Islam. This process
 +would allow teachers to understand how to relate Islam to all aspects of their own lives as citizens of China, which they could then impart on their students.(ibid)
 +Gai presented an alternative to the assimilative nationalist policies and placed Islamic learning at the center of the methods for training an Islamic cadre of teachers who could teach within the framework of the national ​
 +curriculum. ​
