China is removing domes and other decorative elements from mosques across the country. 

The move is part of a cultural whitewash to suppress the influence of Islam, according to a report in The Telegraph. 

The Nanguan Mosque in Yinchuan, capital of Ningxia province, has had its bright green domes and golden minarets removed.

The words 'Nanguan Mosque' remain on the building, written in Chinese.
