March 12, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The leader of Sudan’s opposition National Umma Party (NUP), Al-Sadiq al-Mahdi, has accused the government of sponsoring Islamist extremists, warning that such policy will backfire.

“The [ruling] National Congress Party (NCP) is nurturing scorpions and snakes, someday they will bite it,” Al-Mahdi said while addressing a regular political symposium held at his residence in Khartoum’s sister city of Omdurman on Monday.

He went on to pour scorn on the Islamic Constitution Front (ICF), a coalition of Islamist groups seeking to replace the country’s current constitution with a one based on Shariah laws.

Al-Mahdi said that the ICF’s talk of an Islamic constitution and declaration of Jihad was “nonsense” and “childish”. He said that such slogans were used before by the National Islamic Front (NIF) to seize power in a military coup. He pledged to impose ideological isolation on extremist groups.

Al-Mahdi turned his fire against security and police authorities citing their violations of human rights and haphazard arrests. He also announced that his party would launch a campaign to monitor violations of human rights and corruption.

      These guys will soon give in as we continue to stop permaInnently stop the oil. No hepl from no one including China which is very angry with North Sudan over its unimaginable demands for oil fees. In May this year, Sudan will face a dramatic weak economy with the dollar rising up to 8 pounds per a dollar.

        You are right man. I also sugguest that they stop waisting time on negotiation but start building the Pipelines to east Africa. I don’t even know why they want it to Pass through Djibuti coz I see same thing happening on that root. We have got Mombassa and even if the pipe line is very long, atleast it passes only one country after our Nation. They should also start Joining the East African Rail.

          That way they can transport the oil by tankers. Am very sure in may as you stated, Russia is going to leave them and they will come to their knees begging for Southerners. You can even see my the sign of Summit. What Pagan’s team need to do is to discontinue this money draining Addis Ababa Negotiation and just come home. We have our oil and we have our nation. We have Peace and we have our farms.
