Angola bans Islam, will demolish all mosques

Now Finally One Nation Has The Right Idea About Islam! 

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.

Other government officials firmly agreed with the culture minister.

Bento Francisco Bento, governor of the country’s Luanda province, has  declared that radical Muslims are “not welcome in Angola.”

“This is the final end of Islamic influence in our country,” added Angola’s  President José Eduardo dos Santos.

According to the CIA’s World Factbook, the  people of Angola are mostly a mix of local tribes. There’s a very small minority  of Europeans. There’s also a healthy 22 percent representation from ethnic  groups called “other.”

About 50 percent of the people in Angola practice indigenous religious  beliefs. Roman Catholics make up 38 percent of the population. Protestants make  up 15 percent.

To whatever extent adherents of Islam are living among the 18 million or so  inhabitants in Angola, then, the population is by all accounts very small.

Portuguese is the official language of Angola. The country is slightly less  than twice the size of Texas.
