Muslims Make Edict Saying Christians Can Never Build New Churches

By Theodore Shoebat

The Muslim government of North Sudan recently reaffirmed a law decreeing that Christians are prohibited from building any new churches. The reaffirmation was made North Sudan’s Minister Shalil Abdullah, and as we read from one Christian activist:

We are deeply concerned by Minister Shalil Abdullah’s statement reaffirming the policy to deny new church permits. This policy, and the continued practice of demolishing and confiscating church land, constitutes a violation of the right to freedom of religion or belief, guaranteed in article 6 and 38 of Sudan’s Interim Constitution as well as article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), to which Sudan is signatory

Mgr. Eduardo Hiiboro Kussal, Catholic Bishop of the South Sudanese diocese of Tambura-Yambio, said:

Bishops and priests are not granted passports and they do not have legal status. They are able to leave the country but re-entry may be refused. Priests have already been expelled; and the bishops are condemned to remain silent

One report also gives this detail on the suppression of Christianity:

The announcement from the Sudan government comes as the country’s implementation of its Islamic rules is still under international scrutiny, over the case of Christian mother Meriam Ibrahim. The mother was initially sentenced to death by Sudan’s court for apostasy and adultery, since authorities insisted that she is a Muslim and her marriage to a Christian man was unlawful.

Ibrahim, who was forced to give birth to her daughter while in prison, was freed from the charges following intense international pressure, but was later detained again by Sudanese authorities who accused her of forging travel papers.

The Christian mother and her family are currently at the U.S. embassy in Sudan, waiting to move to America.
