July 7, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir on Saturday said that he rejects ’secularism’ and reiterated his commitment to replace the country’s constitution with an ’Islamic’ one.

Speaking in a religious rally held in Wad Al-Fadni area east of Khartoum, Bashir said that he rejects secularism in Sudan.

He went on to declare that the country’s upcoming constitution will be ’Islamic’ and serve as “a role model for all people who have aspirations to apply religion in all aspects of their lives”.

Bashir also announced that they would form a committee comprising all political forces and especially religious groups to draft the constitution.

Bashir has already decided to end the debate about his country’s cultural identity, stating at one point ahead of the secession of the mainly Christian South Sudan in July 2011 that Sudan would adopt a constitution with Islam being the official religion and Arabic the official language.

His new comments come at a time when his government is facing growing public discontent and street protests over rising cost of living as the country’s economy struggles to weather the effects of losing 75 percent of its oil production to South Sudan.

Sudan’s current constitution, which was agreed in 2005 as per the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) with South Sudan, in theory recognises the country’s ethnic, religious and cultural diversity.

Official records say that 97 percent of Sudan’s estimated population of over 30 million are Muslim.

        Northern Sudanese,

        You are really struggling with your simple minded. Anything going on in Sudan must be be watched very carefully by South Sudan because those who are ruling Sudan are penguins who do not know anything about boundaries. South Sudan must watch them because they are our enemies. Please stop your stupid question about this website. It belongs to South Sudan, Mr. Laundry head.

            Mr. North Sudanese!!!!!
            Instead of writing your bullshit on this forum, you should probably pay tribute for your innocent Muslims being tortured in Khartoum streets like in Burma/ myamar. I feel sympathy for them because I respect humanity. I know our innocent civilians are starving due to our greedy SPLA official. I actually appreciate Jalaba comments because they are greedy and stupid officials

            Northern Sudanese,

            You need to find something else to talk about and not this website. It is ours, but we are not going to block you from it because your comments to us are like a drop of water into Ocean. If people of South Sudan are starving as you are trying to make it up out of blue, why are fake black Arabs from Sudan are pouring in South Sudan in big numbers. Enjoy your laundry in your head

      Our security as a nation means we must not be blinded by a naive and exceedingly dangerous political correctness when it comes to Islam. It is an evil, wicked religion and must not be allowed to take root in the Republic of south Sudan, I am proud of being really Sudanese person,
      Islam can fuck itself in hell,

    I don’t see why there would be a benefit at all to have a religious law compared to a secular law that covers all people.
    .
    what about the people who have no religion or indeed a religion different from the "official religion"?
    .
    Religions by definition deal and cater for the spiritual needs of people. But have little or nothing to do with traditional concepts of law and order.
    Please reconsider

    This mong called Humar Al Bashir is the most stupid person in Sudan. He want to live in the Islamic country why not moved back to where his ancestor came from which is some where in the middle east countries. Sudan belong to the Sudanese people not mongst. This guy deserved to be killed or arrested and put a way for good for the sake of the country.
