North Sudan: Al-Bashir Moves Forward with Rewriting the Country’s Constitution to Implement Sharia Law

By Michael Carl – “Sudanese leader Omer Hassan Al-Bashir is moving forward with rewriting the country’s constitution to implement Shariah law, according to reports from organizations with links inside the Muslim-dominated nation.

International Christian Concern’s North Africa specialist Jonathan Racho says that a Shariah-compliant constitution will mean more suffering for Sudan’s remaining Christians.

‘This new law (Shariah compliant constitution) is going to affect a significant number of Christians who live in places like Khartoum (the capital city). There are still a significant number of Christians in Sudan,’ Racho said.

‘If Al-Bashir introduces this Shariah law and if he’s going to go ahead and adopt an entirely Islamic constitution, Christians and other non-Muslims who live in Sudan will be treated like second-class citizens,’ Racho said.

‘They will be dhimmis and they will not have full rights in the freedom of religion,’ Racho said.

Racho emphasized the reality of non-Muslim life under Islamic law.

‘Shariah law is incompatible with human rights and the human rights that are enshrined in many Western constitutions. So, we are really alarmed by the latest statements by the government of Sudan,’ Racho said.

Racho says Al-Bashir’s move towards Shariah shows that the government of Sudan hasn’t learned anything from its recent loss of the south.

“The government of Sudan should realize that the reason the south seceded and the war for secession was because of the Shariah law and now they’re repeating the same mistake,” Racho said.

Racho says its highly probable that Al-Bashir is moving forward because he believes most of the Christians have left the north.

‘Al-Bashir said that 98 percent of the country is Muslim so the new constitution will reflect this reality,’ Racho said…

‘The Islamization of Sudan (North and South and the rest of the African continent) has been the goal of Bashir’s government for years,’ Zurowski said.

Zurowski adds his concern that the newly independent South Sudan will still have to deal with al-Bashir.

‘I fear the south has not heard the last of him. As people leave the north and return to the south, the strength of Islam will only grow in Khartoum. This I guarantee,’ Zurowski said.” Read more.
