Cape Town – Angola has reportedly become the first country ever to ban Islam and to shut down mosques, according to reports.
A small state of Africa named Angola banned Islam and Mosques after putting a clear message to its Muslim Citizens to ‘end of Islamic influence‘.
Daily Mail quoted the Minister of Culture Rosa Cruz e Silva as saying mosques in the largely Christian country would be closed until further notice.
She described Islam as a ‘sect’ that would be banned as counter to Angolan customs and culture, the report said.
International Business Times, however, reported that Angola had denied the report saying there was no such ban.
An official at the Angolan Embassy in Washington, DC said the report was “erroneous”, adding that Angola was a country that did not interfere in religion.
Angolan government has started to demolish mosques across the country after saying that Islam is banned.
Angola is majority-Christian nation of about 16 million people, of whom an estimated 55% are Catholic, 25% belong to African Christian denominations, 10% follow major Protestant traditions, and 5% belong to Brazilian Evangelical churches. Only 80 000 to 90 000 Angolans are Muslim, according to the US State Department.
Now, the international media and a portion of Islamically influenced Indian counterparts have also confirmed this story that Angola emphatically did it.
Fear of radical Islam is not the preserve of Westerners. Indeed, in October, hostile actions have been conducted in several cities of Angola. Several officials have spoken on the subject. The governor of Luanda (Capital City of Angola) summarized the act stating that radical Muslims were not welcome in Angola and that the government was not ready to legalize the presence of mosques in the country.
The Minister of Culture , Rosa Cruz went in the same direction by stating that :“The process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, their mosques would be closed until further notice. We must remember that the country is 95 % Christian and has a rather Christian culture.” The government has decided to destroy the long term, the country’s mosques deemed illegal, Islam is not considered as religion in its own rights in the country.
Last October, the minaret of a mainly frequented by ‘Guinean Mosque’ was dismantled . In the urban commune of Zango , the municipality has gone further by destroying the only mosque in the city. Even, no Jihadi group has been given any chance to take any revenge for that.
Last October, Muslims from the urban municipality of Viana, Luanda, attended the destruction of their mosque in Zango.
According to several Angolan newspapers, Angola has become the first country in the world to ban Islam and Muslims, taking first measures by destroying mosques in the country.
“The process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, their mosques would be closed until further notice,” Rosa Cruz e Silva, the Angolan Minister of Culture, was quoted by Agence Ecofin on Friday, November 22.
Silva comments were given during her visit last Tuesday to the 6th Commission of the National Assembly.
“This is the final end of Islamic influence in our country,” Angolan President José Eduardo dos Santos was quoted by Osun Defender newspaper on Sunday, November 24.
The Governor of Luanda, Bento Bento, has said that “radical” Muslims are not welcome in the country and that the Angolan government will not be legalizing mosques or other places of worship for Muslims.
As a matter of fact Angola’s citizens primarily are showing their inclinations to their early indigenous beliefs. Recent surveys show that 47 percent adhere to traditional indigenous beliefs while another 38 percent of the population practice Roman Catholicism and 15 percent practice Protestantism.
Now, the ’banned religion of Islam’ in Angola is practiced by a very small percentage of the 18.5 million inhabitants of the Country. Only about 80,000-90,000 Angolans practice Islam. These Muslims are primary migrants from West Africa and Lebanon.
Angola has successfully given a global message how to restrict Radical Islam in the face of growing Jihad and Islamophobia.
Angola has started the ‘Era of Banning Islam’ in modern times. Now this starting of ’ban on Islam by the non-Muslim states’ may be defined in a way that the Final ‘War between Cross and Crescent‘ will be most evident in America, Europe, Australia and even in China though it has been initiated by African Angola.
There is no injustice to it. All the Muslim Countries do not allow the practice of Non-Muslim Religions. So, each and every Non-Muslims states have to right to ban the practice of Islam in those Non Muslim lands accordingly.
And this the time to put all nails to the Coffin of Islam. It is easy now as depicted by the Great Sign of Islam, ’786′. Do you know the meaning of Islam? Know it now.
Muslim clerics teach the mystery of ’786′ very confidentially. 786=? 7th Century: Birth. 7+8=15th Century: Peak. 7+8+6=21st Century: Fall. 786 depicts the birth, rise and fall of Islam in this encapsulated chronicle of bloodiest phases of human history.
The final fall of Islam has been started from Angola. World has to follow Angola. Hindu Existence Forum appreciates this action of Angola.
