In a meeting on Saturday with the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the International University of Africa (IUA), Bashir pointed to the role played by the university in disseminating education among Muslims in Africa, saying that education is the main tool for advancing Islam and empowering Muslims.

The university’s BoT had recently conducted its 20th meeting amid a large presence of scholars from Sudan and abroad.

Bashir praised the role played by the IUA students and graduates all over the world.

The head of the BoT, Mustafa Osman Ismail, said they are seeking to activate the role of the IUA domestically and regionally, saying that several facilities were opened on the sidelines of the BoT 20th meeting.

He also expressed a commitment to develop and modernise the university, adding that they would offer the necessary funding for IUA projects, as well as provide sponsorship for needy students.

    Ironically, it’s the NIF’ African Taliban Regime that is trying to eradicate non-Islamic religions in Africa. NIF had helped Idriss Debi to eradicate Christianity in Chad and the two have joined hands in March 2013 to over throw the Central African Republic (CAR) President through rebellion. Also, their finger-prints were spotted in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Nigeria.

    Islam is a terrorist organization that kills innocent civilians in the name of their devil called prophet Mohammed. May his soul burn in hell.

    @deltabrova, what is happening in South Sudan is fighting between Dinka and Nuer, that is called an ethic fight between two tribes have nothing to do with Christianity. By the way, religion was created by a man as a tool to acheive their goal.

    Western colonists didn’t try to eradicate Islam, they just tried to stop Muslims exploiting others. Trouble is, exploiting others is at the root of Islam. What else is there besides jihad? Only banging their heads on the ground.
