MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Sudan stays in 13th position in the World Watch report 2022 by Open Doors for Christian persecution. Chairman/ Presidential Standard of the Transitional Sovereignty Council of the Republic of Sudan- Incumbent Abdel Fattah al-Burhan since 25 October 2021. Prime Minister of the Republic of Sudan- Incumbent Osman Hussein (Acting) since 19 January 2022. Persecution of Christians remains incredibly high in Sudan and hasn’t changed much in the last year. Christians have been treated badly for their faith in Christ. They have endured hate speech and terrible abhorrence. As it was illegal for Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men, many such people were forced into reconversion. In many areas, the Churches were vandalized and burned down. Although the majority are Muslim, there is a substantial Christian minority in Sudan. The new transition government is trying to gain recognition on the international stage and is working to provide protection for religious minorities. Many Sudanese Christians welcome the changes, while others say it’s too late. And still, others say the country has a long way to go to demonstrate acceptance of them and other religious minorities.
