Opposition parties and other groups in Sudan are condemning the suggestion that the country should adopt a constitution based on Shariah law. Reported yesterday on this blog.
"After more than twenty years of suffering and while the country is
experiencing a comprehensive crisis, the National Congress Party seeks
to repeat the experience of religious fanaticism, and emergency and
inquisition courts through a new alliance with the 'Takfiri', and
advocates of sedition and fragmentation of the country" on ethnic,
religious and regional basis, the opposition said.
In a statement released on Thursday the National Consensus Forces
further condemned the gathering of Sudanese Islamists and accused the
ruling National Congress Party of seeking through extremists and radical
groups to impose the Sharia laws.
The opposition parties further said they are now facing a new
coalition of "corrupt tyrants and fanatics" who seek to prolong their
survival through the use of religion.
