Sunday, 24 November 2013 00:00

LUANDA – According to several Angolan newspapers, Angola has become the first country in the world to ban Islam and Muslims, taking first measures by destroying mosques in the country.

“The process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, their mosques would be closed until further notice,” Rosa Cruz e Silva, the Angolan Minister of Culture, was quoted by Agence Ecofin on Friday, November 22.
Silva comments were given during her visit last Tuesday to the 6th to the Commission of the National Assembly.

Thanks for posting. Very interesting.

“This is the final end of Islamic influence in our country,” President José Eduardo dos Santos was quoted by Osun Defender newspaper on Sunday, November 24.

Last October, Muslims from the urban municipality of Viana, Luanda, attended the destruction of the minaret of their mosque Zengo.

The provincial governor of Luanda, Bento Bento, has also said on the airwaves of a local radio that "radical Muslims are not welcome in Angola and the Angolan government is not ready for the legalization of mosques."

He added that Muslims were not welcome in Angola and that the government would not legalize the presence of mosques in the country.

According to CIA Factbook, 47% of Angolans practice indigenous beliefs, 38% Roman Catholic and 15% Protestant.

I wondered how this was possible so I looked up Angola's government:

"What type of government does Angola have?
Angola is a Unitary Presidential Republic. The head of the government is the President and the executive body of the government comprises of the President, the Vice President and the Council of Ministers. The President is not elected by the people. The President of the party with majority in the parliamentary election automatically becomes the President of the country. The President is bestowed with enormous power and the principle of separation of power is not in practice in Angola."

Barack would make a great Angolan president.
