Mr. John Sullivan, the Deputy Secretary of State under U.S. President Donald Trump, has demanded that the Sudanese authorities stop demolishing Churches. “The government of Sudan, including the federal states, should also immediately suspend demolition of places of worships, including mosques and churches,” AFP
quoted Sullivan as saying in a speech at Al-Koran Al-Karim University.
Sullivan highlighted the plight of the Christian community within the oppressed nation, and “instances of the arrest, detention, and intimidation of religious leaders,” as well as “the denial of permits for the construction of new churches; restrictions on non-Muslim religious groups from entering the country; and the censorship of religious material.”
It is unclear how many such places of worships have been demolished.
