Sudan has separated religion from its state

9th September 2020: African country Sudan has separated religion from its state ending 30 years of Islamic Rule.

According to the report of Baaghi TV, the 30-year-old Islamic law in the African country has ended, and their Prime Minister has signed a deal to separate Islam from the state.

Sudan’s 30-year-old Islamic law has been scrapped and the separation of religion from politics and law has been agreed.
Sudan’s transitional government has agreed on a deal with rebel groups which ends 30 years of rule under Islamic law and Islam as the official state religion.

Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and a leader of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM–N), Abdelaziz Al-Hilu, signed the accord on Thursday in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

“The state shall not establish an official religion,” says the agreement. “No citizen shall be discriminated against based on their religion. For Sudan to become a democratic country where the rights of all citizens are enshrined, the constitution should be based on the principle of ‘separation of religion and state’, in the absence of which the right to self-determination must be respected.”
