Angola has ordered the shutdown of all mosques and declared Islam illegal.

“The legalisation of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights [and] their mosques will be closed until further notice,” said minister of culture Rosa Cruz e Silva.

The minister called Islam a “sect” which would be banned as counter to Angolan customs and culture.

Following the ban, there were unconfirmed reports that mosques across the vast southern African nation were being destroyed.

“This is the final end of Islamic influence in our country,” President Jose Edurado dos Santos told the Osun Defence daily.

Muslims account for less than 1% of the population of 19 million, while more than half of this former Portuguese colony subscribe to Christianity.

Clashes between the two communities are frequently reported in the local media. Muslims, many of whom migrated from west Africa and Lebanon, often face hostility from lawmakers in Angola.

Along with Islam, 194 other “sects” have been outlawed.

“Besides these, there is a long list of more than 1,000 applications to be authorised,” said Silva.  (mediasportsone)

      What is good is : Islam not a Religion but A SECTE.
      This has happen to Scientology in many Country, with the fact that Secte is a danger for its Citizen.
      To Put Islam as a Secte is accurate, and bring hope.
      Well educated Lawyers could try to change this status from “religious” fascist ideology to secte.
      Even if they are not kicked out… Their continuous demand for this and that, won’t receive anymore the same welcome in the name of pleasing the religion of Peace !

      Angola is a first I hope many follow, because in Europe, we feel less and less at home..and if they come back again because of Christmas tree, not to hurt their feeling…stuff like that. Politician have to be put to the wall.. and be ask : who to you serve ? That we can not voting against ourselves.

      This Secte of Islam is such evil that it divide people, it divide people inside their own follower, it divide people in the country where they are staying. It a Mess Provider and Blood
      Thirsty !

      Thanks Muse for your Comment,
      Viva… Angola!
      And God Bless You

        Most politicians only care about their own heads, so to speak. It seems that once they get elected they do what THEY want not what the majority of the citizens want. Yet, we continue to re-elect them. God bless you and your family
