Sudan’s NCP says committed to implementing Islamic law

February 25, 2010 (KHARTOUM) – Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) reiterated its position on implementing Islamic Shari’a law in the country as part of its elections programme.

The position was outlined by presidential adviser Mustafa Osman Ismail in his elections rally in Dongola state in North Sudan where he is running for parliamentary seat.

This week at a meeting between NCP and Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) in Cairo hosted by the Egyptian government discussed the issue of Islamic law implementation. Both sides were deadlocked on their stances with SPLM calling for a secular state.

But the Sudanese Undersecretary of Foreign affairs Mutrif Sideeg and member of the NCP delegation said that this position is not negotiable.

“We will not abandon our Shari’a nor do we call on the others to accept what they do not accept. We accepted the principle that citizenship is the basis of rights and duties, and we have accepted the principle of unity in diversity, and therefore will not commit others to what we are committed to. We do not accept that the others void our personality, religion and identity under any circumstances,” he said.

The major Northern opposition parties in Sudan are supportive of Islamic law implementation with varying views on modalities. The Umma party and Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) with hegemony over two major religious sects will find it hard to publicly support a secular state so as not to be at odds with their bases.

The Umma party leader Al-Sadiq Al-Mahdi has consistently said that Islamic law can be implemented within the context of granting all citizens equal rights regardless of their religious background.

Currently semi-autonomous South Sudan is excluded from the application of Islamic law but observers say that this has deepened the rift between North and the South and diminished hopes of making unity attractive in the 2011 referendum.

    Sharia Law!!!!!!!!!!!! God forbid.In the old Testament they are called Laws of Moses,Eye for Eye and Tooth for tooth.

    Sharia law,these are the laws which the Southerners will never accepted,Bashir is now try to scare those who may vote for him in the South.

    The Southern Sudanese will vote for separation if the NCP still maintain the sharia law and the world still called Sudan Arab Republic of Sudan.

    We will only vote for unity if the sharia law is abolished and Sudan is recognized by the world and Arab as African country and withdraw its membership from Arab league then we will strongly vote in favor of unity.

      Who said the Northerners want the South. We will keep our sharia Law and you can have your Country. Book of Moses !! Whats wrong with that. Maybe if our christian brothers actually read and went by their holy book, they would realise Islam is not that different. But don’t expect us to ignore our holey belief just because others taught you to ignore yours.

        The northern ruling elite are constantly talking about the unity of Sudan and you feel the need to ask such a stupid question. The Sharia law in the north is not true Islamic sharia as the latter dictates that non-muslims be exempt from those laws but yet the security apparatus in Khartoum ignore this fact not to mention the requirements not met for the execution of certain punishment such as cutting a thief’s hand, etc etc etc....

        I urge my southern brothers & sisters not to link Islam with the oppressive and opportunist dictators of the north, Islam is really not that much different from Christianity. The way they (NCP) govern has created ample beggars and prostitution is rife amongst Muslim women in the north. A secular Sudan is the only way forward (non-negotiable), if it was up to me, I would keep Sudan united and give those like Master a state (Al-Shimaliya) in the north where they can practice their fake Sharia.

          Sudani Logik,
          This was my answer, to your yesterday’s posting!

          Derogatory remarks?!

          ((Arabs came to Sudan as homeless traders.))..Homeless

          ((ran away from wars in Arab peninsulas and came to Sudan in search of homes))ran away ...in search for homes?

          ((why you claim African origin.))We are not Africans..just claiming!

          I do want to get educated!But not from looser northerners who pretend to defend southerners,while in essence they have their own agenda which they themselves failed to achieve alone.They simply want to ride on the back of southerners to reach their own selfish destination!Like the fugative Arman! Fortunately southerners now know what they want for themselves, whethr we like it or not!

          It is much better honest and hourable to fight your own cause, by your own means!

        Christianity and Islam are not different at all. Here is what many think is ridiculous, the rule of sha’ria makes it fine to have your mother and sister circumcised and be contained indoor for the rest of their lives. That is what is so sad about sha’ria.
        So, there is nothing "holy" about Islam, figured it out and you see that you are being suppressed by the greeds who just want to control everything in the name of the religion they do not even understand.

        The South will never be ruled by religion doctrines, otherwise we would have not fought the North for many years if that was the case.

          You are wrong,Islam prohibits circumcission of women,it is mostly an African you can find it even in Uganda.You donnot find it in Syria,lybia, Morocow,Turky and almost most the muslim countries. Your war with the north started before independence and has nothing to do with Sharia law.

          You donnot want Sharia,that sharia law well and good,donnot have it,that is your right!But it is not your right to tell us what to do with our life!I think the level of education in north Sudan is far better than in many other places in the world,and you are not then one who will tell us to figure out which is good us.Igonarance and haterd make a dangerous combination!

        Mr. Master,

        I think you have no points to make. I would like to see tough arguments on this forum. Just insulting and making childish comments will not change the situation our country is in.

        I would like to let you know that even with the Sharia Law in operation in Sudan which I still don’t think is in operation, the Arab’s still do horrible things. I don’t want to mention because at the end of the day you will kill yourself. I want to be alive so that you can witness the coming of the referendum in the South.

        I lived in the North and went to college in the north. Don’t you pretend that thinks are going on well?
        So please stop crying because that time has not come you. You can only stop it if you people start blowing yourselves up in front of the markets and campaign locations because this is what you Muslim believe in anyways.

        We don’t want anything from the North and that is why we want to stay separate. There are many reasons as to why we really don’t want to stay together with arab’s. Most of the reasons are very know to all of us. Whether it being political, religious, race ---- you name it. And so technically, there is nothing really in common to stay with any arab.

        wait and be patient.

        Dont mix the traditions of certain tribes to Islam. Dont let me start with your cow urine drinking and other things some of your tribes do. If you dont know anything about the religion then what you hear from people who hate it. Then im sorry your too ignorant to debate. I can criticize any group of societies in all countries with things they do odd. Learn about Islam, read from Islamic books and then come criticize if you can.

          What is wrong with drinking cow urines mixed with milk from the cow?

          Leave alone the circumcisation of females associated with Islam, it could be a traditional practice of a certain tribe who follow the religion. How about the suppression of women under the Islamic law (sha’ria); prohibiting women in public places and denying them their rights to equal opportunities as men in your muslim society. That concept of Sha’ria is what has crippled the entire nation of Sudan for almost a century, but now that chapter is about to close for the Southerners in 2011.

          Masters,

          what about honor killing? if you can kill your sister because she hang out with non-Muslim, where is the holy you claimed? holy mean clean and killing a human is dirty. keep your women like pet under Islamic laws is inhuman and unfair. Mohamad, the Islamic Messanger, condemned killing of human being and he talked about Saudia Arabia women abused in his time when he was a goat herder. Muslim Men have sex with multi-partners while your women get kill when they do the same. it seems like Islam have two god, men god and women god. Equality is not existing in the Muslim world especially the Sunnis countries. Sunnis countries are the poor and extremists countries and home of terrorists. Shiites are more peaceful, smart and that is why their countries are developed and peaceful.

      With or without sharia law we must stand on our own feets as independent state.’’Enough is enough’’ NO NEED and NO WAY of impossing southerners to do their devil mind and if not so then it will make the matters worse this country. And of course you can not crush the wound when it’s almost healing.The source of long civil war was because of fucken Isalamic and it is known allover that Isalmic religion is deadly in the whole world.Did you see christian terrorist with Boom blast around the world?

      I think this is the really time we need to come one point and know our origin as black people. I always tell many people to educate their children because the Sudanese problem is all about illitracy.
      If our anchasters were learned people like we are today at least 30% then the hopeless traders from middle east could n’t have room to give us headache this time.
      sharia law is a well define acts of terrorism and Isalamic religion is all about killing innocent all these can not go with christian laws and they can not leave southerners to go because no can work for them. There so lazy but have the mind to force donkey to work for them.I think with all these,we have to close our mouth and see how they will response to the separation,If the like war then we can not have time to wait if by peace then we can say them Musaalaah and Ambilhaaa we are separated.

      No matter you are committed to your so called Sharia Law, we Southern Sudanese we are already aseparated nation because CPA, made it clear.You were given achance to make UNITY ATTRACTIVE but you totally failed instead you made separation attractive through Religion, and development aspect in the Southern Towns.
      You also worked very hard to creat insecuity in the Southern areas so that CPA failed.Sharia law should not be ideal in the constitution of the nation, unless your usual madness of forcing all Sudaness to dance in the tone you want.

      Referedum is our everything not your fake election.
      To remind you, our Candidate of SPLM, in the North shall win the coming election.Enough is enough.
      Sharia Law is backward that why you have weird mind of circumising women rather than men.

      Blah blah blah.... many northerners shout about Islam but many of them (not all) practice it due to tradition rather than understanding the religion and the same could be said about many southerners. The politicization of religion has been the main damage to our great nation among many other countries. Religion is a personal choice not a national issue, the sooner you backward radicals realize this, the better. The prophet Mohammed use to do business with Jews and safe guard the rights of non-muslims, why do many northern Muslims think they know better than him!!! truly mind boggling....

        You know better,practice it like The Prohet Mohammed(pbuh)run the state the same way he did and protect the rights of non-muslims as he did, and teach others who donnot know like you,nobody will stop you.Islam deal with politics as in economy,war,social affairs,foregin relations, but not partisan politics.Many people abuse it,like they do with democracy, marxism,socialism,freedom, but nobody asked us to stop freedom or democracy!Humans are not perfect.If any single muslim thinks that he knows better than the Prophet(pbuh) then he is not a muslim, be it northerner or coming from heaven!

        We are not good muslims,I agree; but even if we become what we consider to be good muslim,we are not going to be angles, we cannot.We simply have to try to be good muslims!

      We also want them to vote for secession,as long as this is their aspiratios.Sharia will not be imposed on non-muslim, even if the south seceded.If the 2-3 millions Southernersn, living in the north with the jalabba,Arabs and mundicorrows, decided to remain in the north, the sharia law prohibts applying the sharia law upon them.

      Talking about marginalization is a cheap political propoganda!What are you going to say to more than 4 millions southerners who are facing hunger and famine , when the SPLA"the champions of the marginalized people" government had recieved $8.6 BILLIONS,all evaporated to Austrelia, UK and the USA.Airport authoritis are amazed at people coming with fat suit cases stuffed with millions of dollars!Are you going to tell them you are not marginalized?

        At least you admit that you’re not perfect Muslims, so therefore understand that those bad Muslims who constantly shout Allah Akbar as if to reinforce their weak practice of their religion by abusing it while justifying their abuse through religion. I have no problem with Arabs, Muslims, Democrats, Communists or whatever as along as they observe and respect others rights.

        Since you choose to defend the ills of your friends in power under the Islamic banner then naturally I will highlight the negative practitioners and their supporters of that belief.

        You keep talking about this $8bn that you allege the SPLA/M has stolen, please provide one single proof to that effect instead of shouting about it. We all know that there’s corruption in Sudan, but name one country which is free of corruption? This does not mean that SPLM as an entity is responsible for the millions of $$$ lost in the South. It is individuals, politicians, civil servants, Army generals and even the private sector is to blame for this. Many of these individuals do not even support the SPLM.

        Now lets talk about the corruption in the north, where the fuck is the over $15bn (estimate) the NCP received from oil revenues gone? Look into the Geizira agricultural project, the awarding of roads contract to companies belonging to NCP government officials and many more which I don’t have time to go over. My friend, when you point a finger, remember there’re four finger pointing at you. You cannot condemn one criminal and support another, it just doesn’t make sense.

          I am not perfect like you,I do admit that.God has created to be imperfect ,may be you are an exclusion.Do see here on yhis web site, anyone who the slightest respect, even among themselves.Yet we talk to them with due respect and without profani,insults, name calling or haterd,because we respect ourselves.

          I have no problem with any race or tribe, and this a basic teaching of Islam.We are all humans son of Adam and Eve!

          The crruption in the south was admitted by the icumbant minister of finance of the GOSS, who said in the ministry of finance only there were $ 2.7 billions not accounted for.This is incredible.Corruption is evident in thr rise of number of hungry people which had quadripilled during the last 2 years,different international airport authorties are amazed by Sudanese pasport holders coming with gags stuffed million of dollars in cash,and Austrela luxury villas and mansions were been with legendary prices.The previous C-IN-C of the army was sacked was sacked because he had stolen the salaries of his soldiers!The SPLA IS RESPONSIBLE FOR WHATEVER HAPPENS IN AS LONG AS IT’S ON POWER.

          There is corruption in the north,but it is within the normal limits,otherwise you wouldn’t see the development taking place there.Albasheer,when campagining,say ..we built that much thousands of roads,that much of electrisity,schools,hospitals,factories.It is an unpresdented in the history of Sudan.The IMF ,reports that is growin at an average rate of 10% since 1989.This why he is very popular.

            You’re truly misguided if you think Bashir is popular.... You were unable to provide any proof to your claim. Please distinguish between SPLM & SPLA, the former is a political party and the latter is an army although because of their history they’re usually perceived as one entity as it use to be during the civil war.

            Email me (logik28@googlemail.com) and I’ll provide you with enough info to have a clear understanding about Sudanese politics and economics, because you my friend are truly blind to the reality on the ground.

            By the way those southerners who display elements of hate and a tone of frustration in their comments are justified as they have probably lived all their lives discriminated against by your friends, but you Mohammed, what is your excuse? You constantly show southerners disrespect instead of responding to individuals who attack you, you end up painting all southerners with the same brush. The C-in-C was never sacked because it has always been Salva Kiir, you probably mean Oyei Deng Ajak the former SPLA Chief of Staff and he was given a diplomatic role instead as GOSS Foreign Minster, not sacked!

            Most of those who were caught with cash in airports were not holding Sudanese passports, do you ever research the info you read or do you just believe everything your propaganda machine feeds you!!?!!.

      Why are you people so concerned if the North applies Sharia law or not. The South can be secular as it likes. It already is and there are more prostitutes then anywhere in Africa. UN troops dont want !

      You dont judge a country or religion by how many prostitutes there are in the streets. Lets try by the number hungry ! UN and NGO’s estimate more then 3 million will be starving in the South. Tribal clashing killing thousands per month in South Sudan.

      Stop you petty debate about Sharia Law in the North. Even if it was a democracy muslims make up 75% of the population. No muslim society maybe 1 or true execpetions have ever been able to implement pure 100 % Sharia, but we try to follow its teachings. Unlike other hypocrites that have rulers as hidden dictators or parties under this false democracy you talk about. Do you think the Americans would let Sharia law be part of its system if 25% of its population was Muslim !!

You are no Longer part of NORTH SUDAN - Mind your own business. For the millionth time - no one came and stole your land. We were here from the beginning of creation of man and we will stay forever. One you people educated you ignorant people and this stupid rumor that Northerners came from Arabia and took your land is not true. Educated your illiterate fools here that the North existed before your people crawled from the jungles of Uganda naked . We had writing, pyramids, armies and trade. SO FOR THE LAST TIME - WE ARE INDIGENOUS AFRICANS IN SUDAN.

      Ignorant, stupid morons make up their own lies and believe it.

        Leave Shari’ah law and North Sudan to Jallaba, stick to Secularism while waiting for a political, legitimate avenue to exit from this rotten system of political ISLAM in the bloodstream of our otherwise a paradise SUDAN on the planet in year 2011 Referendum. Tribe, Race and Religion cannot afford to create a non-sectarian nation. The way Jallaba are practising their politics in Sudan is a divisive politics that we cannot go down our throats. It is better for us to be poor in freedom than to be rich in Slavery i.e death in freedom is better than live in servitude.

          Because South Sudanese believe in one parliament, one people and one country in a democratic system, they do not need any divisive mechanism to rule the country. Religion should be a choice of an individual and the state for all born in it. For this reason the North can live in their Islam and the South should take a choice that is convenient to support an individual in deciding which religion he/she wants. It is therefore nothing other than Secular constitution that can guarantee that. It is even better if the two parts of Sudan part.
