The fight against Islam does not seem to be exclusive to westerners. According to the African press, Angola is determined to eradicate Islam from its territory.
Thus Muslims Luanda saw their mosque being destroyed. The municipality of the town was radically breaking the only mosque in the city. Just days later, this is the Mosque of Viana was reduced to dust.
To excuse these unjust acts, the governor of the city said that the government of the country was not ready to legalize the construction of mosques. Similarly, earlier this week, the Minister of Culture, Rosa Cruz e Silva said: “With regard to Islam, the legalization process has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Man, their mosques will be closed until further notice. “
Now the main task of the Angolan government would destroy all the mosques located in the country because their status is considered “illegal”. This “illegal” status is further enhanced by the fact that the Muslim religion is considered contrary to the customs and the habits of the country. Therefore, leaders want the ban at all costs.
Although the proportion of Muslims is small, it prevents our Angolan brothers are suffering from this anti-Islam political regime. Allah assists and facilitates the Hijra!
A report has been issued stating the following:
“The legalisation of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights [and] their mosques will be closed until further notice,” said minister of culture Rosa Cruz e Silva.
The minister called Islam a “sect” which would be banned as counter to Angolan customs and culture.
Following the ban, there were unconfirmed reports that mosques across the vast southern African nation were being destroyed.
“This is the final end of Islamic influence in our country,” President Jose Edurado dos Santos told the Osun Defence daily.
Muslims account for less than 1% of the population of 19 million, while more than half of this former Portuguese colony subscribe to Christianity.
Clashes between the two communities are frequently reported in the local media. Muslims, many of whom migrated from west Africa and Lebanon, often face hostility from lawmakers in Angola.
Along with Islam, 194 other “sects” have been outlawed.
“Besides these, there is a long list of more than 1,000 applications to be authorised,” said Silva.
