＂Desinification＂, originally used to refer to a social and political movement and similar concept, is recently used by some people to criticize developing situation of Islam in China. This mislabeling criticism without academic soundness has caused a lot of public attention today when nationalism is rife. Based on an investigation a- bout the historical evolution of Chinese Islamic architecture, this article holds that Islam in China has 1000 years of experience of sinicization, and its historical evolution laws are also synchronized with those of overall Chinese society. Therefore, the mislabeling of ＂Desinification＂ on Islam is a kind of superficial misreading.
