Pro-Salafist newspaper blasts Sudan’s Bashir, calls him a ‘serial liar’


March 5, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese president Omer Hassan a-Bashir came under an unusual attack from a pro-Salafist newspaper which described him as a liar and accused his government of corruption.

"The dancing president who lies to his nation day and night; promises them with Shar’ia and religion; pledges good life....but it is only a deception," the editorial of al-Muharir newspaper said on February 22.

Al-Muharir is the mouthpiece of the hardline Islamic Salafist group led by Mohamed Abdel-Kareem who is better known for his fierce hostility to secular parties such as the Sudanese Communist Party (SCP) and Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM).

The newspaper went on to describe government officials as being "engaged in usury, looting, stealing and manipulating the nation’s faith and religion".

It made a comparison between Bashir and Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi concluding that the latter is a better leader.

Sources told Sudan Tribune that Khartoum may have been reluctant to take action against the newspaper for fear of opening a new front with Sudan’s increasingly discontented Salafist groups, who see the ruling National Congress (NCP) as a party which has abandoned the Islamic principles it preached over the last two decades.

In particular these groups want the government to swiftly adopt an Islamic constitution.

Already Sudanese authorities have confiscated three editions of the newspaper over the course of last year for material that was deemed insulting to president Bashir.

The National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) routinely seizes copies of newspapers and in some cases suspends entire media houses. Last year three newspapers were shut down by the Sudanese authorities.

    "Sahih International
    They have taken their oaths as a cover, so they averted [people] from the way of Allah . Indeed, it was evil that they were doing."
    I strongly believe in the HOLY QUR’RAN.

    Bravo salafist! Where were you all this time around? We all knew this shit desert boy named Bashiir was a stupid (dancer,liars, thief n infidel) calling himself a Muslim but he is not. Sudan is already collapsed! What happened? Only 19 months following the secession of South Sudan? I thought Sudan will be a better country after south’s departure. The onlyway for you to survive is to accept with S.

    Bashir is a hated figure in the world don’t forget this he has blood of millions of people in his hands. He and his pathetic Islamic Sharia laws make an excellent combination of "THE AGENTS OF THE DEVIL" He is needed by the ICC for the millions of crimes he committed and the lives that were lost due to his EVIL Nature.

      Those who are in " CLOSED SYSTEM" must understand that the # of world pouplation is over 7000 millions and it be INSHA ALLAH 8500 millions in year 2030.
      The population of Sudan is very very little compared to the # of all muslims.
      The Salafists are the dangerous virsus which attacked muslism countries.
      Bashir will be freed within few months by ICC. You better look to know who really wanted by ICC

    Truly speaking, Bashir is big bastard liar, but this group must be the worst extremists who always hid their businesses of killing behind Allah. Islam is for peace and and those who truly believe in Qur’an are not always violent. by the way, what is the meaning of SALAFIST? I don’t know Arabic and i need someone to help me.

      "Sahih International
      They are not [all] the same; among the People of the Scripture is a community standing [in obedience], reciting the verses of Allah during periods of the night and prostrating [in prayer]."
      Ahala Alketab (Christians and Jews) are much much better than the Salafists.

    Ask the Salafists to read the seven verses of Surat Al-F?ti?ah in their prayers starting with:
    Besmil ALLAH..... which has the following meaning in:
    "Sahih International
    In the name of Allah , the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful."
