A number of newspapers in the region are reporting that the Republic of Angola has outlawed Islam, apparently in an effort to thwart the spread of Muslim radicalism in the country.

Among them was La Nouvelle Tribune, a French-language newspaper out of Morocco, reports the International Business Times.

La Nouvelle Tribune observed that a minaret on an Angolan mosque had been removed previously. Also, in the small city of Zango, not far from the capital of Luanda, government officials reportedly destroyed a mosque.



The Moroccan paper quoted Angola’s minister of culture, Rosa Cruz e Silva, for details.

“The process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights,” Cruz e Silva said. “Their mosques would be closed until further notice.”

The ban, which includes an order to destroy all mosques in the country, isn’t specific to Islam, according to India Today. Other faiths which don’t meet government approval will face the same restrictions.

“All sects on the list published by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights in the Angolan newspaper ‘Jornal de Angola’ are prohibited to conduct worship, so they should keep their doors closed,” Cruz e Silva was quoted by as saying by the Cameroon Voice.

It’s not clear which other religions are included.

I'm not sure that's such a good idea. I think that could force some seriously radical movements underground.

Reminds me of when the Taliban blew up the Buddha statues. gaah.gif

It's like turning on a light at night, and commanding moths to show up.

Biere.

This is a very bad idea. It's a good way to create radical elements where they did not exist prior.

Get ready for some serious backlash I would imagine.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Angola government denies it tried to ban Islam

ANGOLAN diplomats in the United States have rejected reports that it has banned Islam - but not before rumours that it had done so alarmed Muslims around the world.

The International Business Times quoted a spokesperson from the Angolan embassy in Washington DC, who said Angola is "a country that does not interfere in religion".
