Radical Islamic extremism is connected with violence and that is a fact. We can all agree on a fact that there should be no ambiguity about the radical Islamic extremism. They have been a giant issue and a topic of conversation among both people and political figures, for a long period of time now.
There have been a large number of debates among people that possess common sense and claim that countries cannot accept all the migrants that are asking to be moved. It’s exactly the same case in Angola. But, it seems that common sense and popular demand by its citizens has forced officials to take pre-emptive action, and have decided to ban the Muslim religion within its country. The country itself considers the Muslim religion as a CULT, and not a religion.
Back in early October 2013, Muslims living in Luanda were shocked to see the minaret of their Mosque destroyed into pieces on the ground without any permission.
The Angolan authorities decided to destroy the mosque Zango located a few miles away from Viana. Later, the Governor of Luanda Bento announced via radio that Radical Muslims are not welcomed in Angola, and that the Angolan government is not ready for the legislation of mosques in Angola.
On November 19th, the Minister of Culture, Rosa Cruz e Silva said, “Regarding Islam, the legalization process has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights. Therefore, all mosques would be closed until further notice.”
Obviously, the Angola officials are already awake, and decided to prevent themselves from any similar happening that is taking place in European capitals.
What do you think about this decision? Has Angola went too far by banning Islam completely? Or is it the step that should be taken by our country too?
We should be taking a note from what Angola has done. I might make our world a more peaceful place.
