In China, Muslim veil has been seen as the most controversial object. Since the establishment of People’s Republic of China in 1949, the government has been focusing on the act of ‘de-veiling’ by executing firmly the law of veil ban towards the Uyghur, one of the two Muslim majority in China, while quite moderately towards the Hui. Using stratified purposeful sampling, the data were taken from Q1 Scopus-indexed journal articles. Deploying Hallidayean Transitivity system Appraisal Theory developed by J. R. Martin and P. R. R. White, this discourse study examines the authorial voices on the veil politicization towards the Uyghurs and the Huis. The preliminary finding demonstrates that the material and relational processes dominate the language of academicians in framing the Chinese government’s different attitude towards the Uyghurs and the Huis alongside negative judgment in monoglossic utterance to depict the Sinocentric tradition in China. The Hui is considered to be Sinicized, or acculturated to the Chinese, and thus able to carry out the practice of veil; while, the Uyghur, on the opposite, face discrimination in the practice of veil.
