Background: The Religious Scholars Committee (RSC) is Sudan’s main clerical authority. In October 2012 it publicly advocated girl child marriage, drawing the ire of women activists rights who called for an immediate ban against the practice.
In 2009 the RSC issued a Fatwa endorsing Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) despite much lobbying by activists to ban the harmful practice.
