Turabi refuses idea of separating between religion and the country in Sudan
Sudan, Politics, 2/22/2000
Hassan Turabi, the head of the dissolved Sudanese Parliament, refused the idea of separating between religion and the country and accused those urging for it of being "nonbelievers in God," saying that separating between religion and the state was decided by the basic system of the ruling National Congress Party.
He said that the National Congress does not believe in separating between religion and the government because there is one only house in Sudan, which is the mosque.
Separating between the religion and the state forms a main request of the rebels, which is one of the basic principles upon which the initiative of the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) is based to reach a solution to the Sudanese civil war which has been continuing since 1983.
