Islam Ban: Questionable Future for Mosques in Angola

While the constitution in Angola guarantees freedom of religion to all of its citizens, this right no longer seems to apply to the followers of the now banned religion of Islam. According to numerous newspapers in Angola, the African nation has banned the Islamic religion. It has become the first country in the world to take such a harsh stance against Muslims.

On November 22, the Angolan Minister of Culture Rosa Cruz e Silva said that “[t]he process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights [and so] their mosques would be closed until further notice.” Why the religion needs to be legalized has not been definitively stated by Cruz e Silva.

Cruz e Silva has also said that the closing of mosques is the most recent move in Angola’s effort to but a stop to so-called illegal religious sects. Under new laws in Angola, many religious sects have suddenly become criminal.

On November 24, Angola President José Eduardo dos Santos said that the country is working toward putting an end to Islamic influence in Angola once and for all. Again, there is no word of what or who has been influenced and why it needs to stop.

The Governor of Luanda, Bento Bento, has said that “radical” Muslims are not welcome in the country and that the Angolan government will not be legalizing mosques or other places of worship for Muslims.

Islam Banned in Angola
Small African Nation of Angola

The African country of Angola’s citizens primarily practice indigenous religions. Recent surveys show that 47 percent adhere to traditional indigenous beliefs while another 38 percent of the population practice Roman Catholicism and 15 percent practice Protestantism.

The now banned religion of Islam is practiced by a very small percentage of the 18.5 million inhabitants of Angola. Only about 80,000-90,000 Angolans practice Islam. These Muslims are primary migrants from West Africa and Lebanon.

While the means of becoming a “legal religion” is Angola is not clear at this point, the government is very harshly cracking down on the illegal sects. Minister of Culture Rosa Cruz e Silva has made it known that there are nearly 200 different illegal religious sects in Angola so it is not just Islam that has been banned in Angola.

Rosa Cruz e Silva has also said that there are more than 1000 applications that have been submitted by religious groups in an effort to legalize their sects. Islamic groups have made up some percentage of these many applications but it is not clear when or if they will ever be approved. Rosa Cruz e Silva said that the legalization process of Islam has simply not been approved and, therefore, mosques must remain closed “until further notice.”

While some mosque could theoretically reopen again in the future, some are gone forever. After Angola banned Islam, one of the country’s few mosques had its minaret was taken down in October. The city of Zango had its only mosque completely destroyed after the ban as well.

    What are people complaining about? Look at the surrouding Islamic African territories: WAR WAR AND MORE WAR. You can complain about Angola’s so called intolerance or prejudism against Islam but Angola is a predominately Christian nation, just as Saudi Arabia is an Islamic Nation, and even with Angola’s problems of unequally distributed wealth is enjoying civil peace and an unprecedented flow of international investment, with absolutely no argument about Angola’s intolerance towards Islam. Why is that? Because no other nation is willing to openly state that Islam equates to war. Angola has taken a moral stand against war and tyranny. And even the rhetorical threats that the Islamic countries attempted to issue did not deter the Government from its position. May The Lord continue to bless Angola with continued prosperity and clarity to help all of her people.

    why do the Muslims always say ‘dont critisise Islam’? this suggests that they are totally brainwashed and simple dont care what their religion teaches, all religions are intolerant, particularly islam- which teaches its followers that the ‘infidels’ are ‘unholy’ and should convert or be executed or en-slaved. i would be very proud of Australia if they banished the radicals back to an Islamic country aswell as those ‘moderates’ who enable the radicals. instead of this halal is being force fed to us, the holocaust is slowly being dropped in many public schools (because it offends Muslims), some neighborhoods are becoming (or have become) Islamic ghettos and mainstream society is calling islamophobia ‘racist’, how is critisising a religion against a race?

    Islam is not tolerant of any other religion. In fact it is every Muslims juty to rid the world of all non-believers via jihad (violent means). That is the truth, don’t listen to their lies! This is the commandment that their god has issued to them. Thus if they are not tolerant of me, then why should I be of them? I applaud the government of Angola for the example they have set for the rest of the world to follow.

      The main problem with the West today is the fail to realize that such barbaric religion as Islam should be treated EQUALY as Islam treats own apostates and other non-Muslim.

      If Islam MURDERS own APOSTATES – we should murder every Muslim involved in such converting to Islam,

      if Islam PROHIBITS marrying Muslim women to non-Muslims while encouraging marrying non-Muslim women to Muslim males –

      – we should lash (or kill) every Muslim male touching non-Muslim women,

      etc.

      The Islam has survived ONLY for Islam MURDERS own APOSTATES.

      But now the ties have change in our eyes. For example Some countries think now about banning Quran for its HATRED CLAIMS against non-Muslims.

      In France goverment think to stop pay benefists toward non-working Muslims etc.

      Most of all the Westerners have great examples of dealing with Muslim mentality –

      – eg. reconquista of Spain or almost total destroying of Ottoman Empire.

      The way to destroy Islam however is not only military.

      THE MAIN WAY IS SHOW how RIDICULOUS Islam IS – and it is quite easy.

      The 3rd World War is still to come 🙂 – now it will be against Islam.

    I agree, with Azura Nisa, Anton, Pete, Mauricio Arvind and others that speak against islam being a peaceful religion…Arif you say Islam is the most logical and natural religion?? that is such a lie….Islam is a violent, cultic, hateful, evil religion….according to the quran, koran whatever… it says that telling a lie to a non muslim is also allowed and how can islams even compare the koran with the Holy Bible KJV…the koran says in sura 2:98… allah is an enemy of unbelievers, in sura 2:161, it says “unbelievers is the curse of allah” and in 5:54 “O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends, they are friends of each other. Those of you who make them his friend is of them. god (allah).. does not guide an injust people….I read on another link an islamist commenting… may allah destroy the President of Angola and his fellower and those who try to deny islam….they are EVIl, not a peaceful religion like they claim, there is nothing peaceful about them, they want to control the world, they go to other countries and do not want to obey their laws, but if you go to their countries then you have to obey their laws…so unfair, continuing with the koran it also says to fight, make war, slay them, 2:190-these are unholy quotes that promote terrorisim…yet, some are saying they proud and love islam, even if the koran commands to kill infidels, those that dont believe in their allah…lovely…some even quote Bible verses about jesus, but their (fake)jesus, that is not my JESUS, THE SON OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD, that died on the cross for our salvation…repent, and ask the real GOD to come into your heart, I thank GOD, that some muslims have left the false Islam religion and have accepted JESUS CHRIST as their saviour and now have real happiness, but of course then they are persecuted by the islams, many tortured and killed….that is the religion some of you are saying you so much love, I doubt it that you are so happy in it like you profess….by the way religion saves no one, as it is a man made thing, it’s having a relationship with the REAL GOD, the GOD who made heaven and earth, that can save you, if you repent, and make HIM LORD of your life, then you won’t want to believe in allah, I read… said by some muslims themselves, allah doesen’t even exist…

          The Quran gives Muslim men permission to beat their wives for disobedience (Surat 4:34 http://quran.com/4/34), but NOWHERE does it command love in marriage. That alone, makes it evil, primitive, bronze age cult.
          I have been Muslim most my life, till I opened my eyes to the truth about it.
          More than 60% of Quran is about non-Muslims, drawing the sharpest of distinctions between Muslims and non-believers. Far from teaching universal love, incessantly preaches the inferiority of non-Muslims, even comparing them to vile animals and gloating over Allah’s hatred of them and his dark plans for their eternal torture.

          – Drawing a distinction between one’s own identity group and those outside it

          – Moral comparison based on this distinction

          – Devaluation or dehumanization of other groups, and the insistence of personal superiority

          – The advocating of different standards of treatment based on identity group membership

          – A call to violence against members of other groups

          Qur’an and Islam qualifies as hate speech manual on each count.

          Go back to the primitive cave you came from, and leave us, the civilized lot, alone.

    i am sure that this is true, I am living here in Luanda ,Angola .and I know that the authority is taking serious about islam , ,, one example is ,there was a small church of other it seems a cult , then the owner also is a pastor , he sold the area including the small church and later a contractor demolized the church and houses for contruction ,
    one day we attracted attention why there are many police and other authority and looks they are very weary then they put an instruction that this project must be cancelled or stopped, as we learned that owner of the área was sold to certain Muslim person and it is very obvious that the new owner is a muslim.

    and we heard some hearsays that the área will built a mosque ,,maybe the owner asked a permit from the authority and thats why police and other authority was coming in that day for scrutiny.

    because in that área there were many non angolan muslims , aside of one mosque and they used big houses to pray , there is a lots of african muslim coming here in Angola and the authority knew it , I think the government has the right to stop of islamization of angola , the christians churches are very worried of this islamic religion because
    they know what will happen if islam will dominate angola.and angola is a 100% christian.

    larifying the false claim that Angola has ‘banned Islam’

    Some of you may have read in the last few days that Angola has outright banned Islam and that it is now illegal to be a Muslim in the Southern African nation. This however is not true. The news that has been spreading like wildfire is simply a case of people believing anything that they hear and then repeating it because it sounds unbelievable. The problem is that people seem to care little about fact-checking or confirming news from proper sources.

    The story was first printed 4 days ago by a Moroccan newspaper called ‘La Nouvelle Tribune’ which is run by the son of a Communist Moroccan politician. The newspaper stated that the governor of Luanda had spoken against radical Muslims and stated that they are not welcome in Angola. It then quoted Angolan politician Roza Cruz as stating that Islam has not yet been approved by the Angolan Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, and that mosques would therefore be closed until further notice.

    The first thing to note about this article is that the politician’s name that was quoted is actually Roza Cruz e Silva, not Roza Cruz which the newspaper got wrong. Second is that no other official is named, and that the statement about Islam not being recognised is not something new but has always been the case. What ‘recognised’ means is that the government of Angola does not officially recognise Islam as a religion, which may sound odd but is not that odd considering that Italy, France and many others countries also do not recognise Islam at an official level. It simply means that the government does not interfere nor officiate on any matters in the religion. It does not mean that the religion is illegal or that it is banned.

    As for the claim that mosques are closed, this is not true and can be confirmed by Muslims in Angola. It seems that Roza Cruz e Silva was either referring to a specific mosque/s or that she never said this at all and the newspaper made it up. Until now the newspaper is the only source of the quote, and considering that they managed to misspell her name I would not put much faith in them. The article then lastly claimed that the minaret of a mosque was dismantled last year and that a mosque (possibly the same one) was destroyed. It does not say why it was destroyed, however it must be noted that it happened LAST YEAR.

    What happened after the initial story however is where we see the dangers of spreading unverified information. The few pieces of information in the article were mixed up and exaggerated, until the story had took an entirely new direction. Stories were claiming that Islam had been banned in Angola, and that mosques were ordered to be destroyed, and that being a Muslim was now illegal. Photos were shown of mosques being destroyed, however all the photos were from Palestine and not from Angola. Eventually a fake quote attributed to the President and before long the story spread like wildfire.

    After doing some fact-checking it was made clear that Roza Cruz de Silva was only speaking about a few Muslim groups who were on the list of proscribed religious groups that would not be allowed to operate mosques, some of which were built without permits. The list contains 194 groups from all religions, yet only a few are Muslims. So it was not true that all mosques would be closed, nor were there orders to destroy any mosques, nor is Islam ‘illegal’ in Angola.

    Please everybody, stop sharing this story as it is not only not true, but suggests that we are not dedicated to checking facts and repeating sensationalised claims. If you have shared the story delete it and clarify that you had not checked the veracity of the story to try and ensure that others do not repeat it.

    So true!

    And as soon as they are the majority they will pressurize ANY non-muslim citizen in any country they are living, regardless if it’s their motherland or a country where they fled to because of one or the other reason. Anywhere they are they try to weaken the local culture and traditions in order to install islam and western politicians only see a great potential of voters in the future, else they pretend to be soooo blind.

    First, this is a false news, it is not true.
    Second, this is precisely how Christianity and other religions are treated in many Islamic countries, where the law on paper gives a freedom of religion but in practice it is virtually impossible, forbidden and punishable to practice anything else but Islam. Government supresses it, and organized mobs are encouraged to intimidate, vandalize and attack people and places of othe religions too.
    This, dear Muslims, is how people are treated in YOUR countries. Do not be surprised if you and your religion starts being treated in the same way. This hoax about Angola is just to show you that a stick has two ends.

      To be 99.99% is a proof that there is no tolerance for others in Islam and those 99.99% is just a statistical number prepared by a islamist state. For the caricatures, you know in Europe everyone can draw anything they want. The same happens to Jesus as well. The moslems are not mature enough. That is why they killed many people in Europe, in Turkey, in Kurdistan as well. So in islam there is no tolerance and no mercy. It is a fashistical ideology not a religion at all.

      “If every1 is against one religion, it just shows how powerful that religion is” you are wrong, it shows how dangerous the cult is, between why in all muslim countries other religions are forced to practice in hidings, in saudi arabia the cradle of islam no one is allowed to practice their religion, not even allowed to carry religious texts or simbols, and the punishment given to those who apostate islam is death penalty, no other world religions offer death penalty to those who leave their religion except islam, you said that it is because it is powerful that people of afraid of it, if islam is and was peaceful people would have adopted it rather banning, cancer is a deadly decease that must be find out at the very begining and need to be eleminated, otherwise the decease would spread to the rest of the body and will eventually kill a person, the same is applicable to islam, islam is the deadliest cancer known to mankind, if we do not stop the cancer as for now the whole of humanity will suffer under that cancer, look at any muslim countries to account, do anyone of them live in peace and harmony, violance is the only fact that has spread in all muslim dominated countries, and they are taking this to the west too. well to be clear islam cannot co-exist with non-islamic countries. “Islam has, is and always will be a true religion” true religion????? how come you claim such a thing when there is no proof supporting your religion as true religion? can you just give us proof for that other than muhammad’s own words? don’t say quran is the proof, because no one has seen muhammad getting a revelation from allah via Jibril(gabriel) other than his own claim! we are not the ones who need education, we were fully informed about the cult that is why we are against it, islam is a cult created by a charlatan, for his own lust over power and women, and putting his own words on the mouth of his sock puppet allah(a pre-islamic pagan moon god of arabia, which was housed with 360 other idols in the kaaba along with his daughters al-lat, al-uzza and manat, he was muhammad’s tribal god(quraish tribe) he borrowed texts from the torah and injil(gospel) and fabricated stories to fit his newly formed religion just to gain power over the people of arabia, the quran has numerous contradictions within itself, and jumbled form of verses and chapters without proper alignment, allah is nothing but muhammad’s own alter ego, it has no connection with the god of jews and christians, go and research yourself before coming and commenting here without knowing your own religion, go read your quran with proper tafseers, all sahih hadiths (sahih al bukhari all nine volumes, sahih muslim, sunna abu dawud, sirat rasoolullah with opening your eyes and brain, if you do that with you will know that who was behind the creation of this religion and for what. between no sane god would send a pedophile as his last and greatest prophet to be followed by every man as a literal moral human being who even lusted for a 6 year old baby and took her to bed when she only only 9 years of age when he was 54.

    Very good decision because islam is just a fashist ideology that is why it should be banned in the world. Today to see the real islam, watch the daily raports coming from Syria. According to this ideology, the woman is not allowed to sit on the chair, nor go outside lonely. In those beardy men there is no mercy because the qoran motivates those beardy men. Islam is such an fashistical ideology. A religion should be merciful, not to cut heads.

    My friend is Christian and she is from Saudi. Who said other religions are not allowed in Saudi? Do you have evidence of this? Further, there are Churches in Pakistan and other Muslim countries. So how are Muslims condemning Christianity and since when do Muslims deserve this lesson? Have the Muslims in Angola condemned Christianity? Clearly they cannot and probably will not as they are a minority group.

    And if you possibly think for a minute that they do deserve “this lesson” because they condemn Christianity – how do you know they condemn it? Are you a mind reader? How on Earth would you know or possibly comprehend what is happening in the minds of others?

    Also, what’s with the “you guys kill Christians in Nigeria”? Frankly I haven’t killed anyone and don’t have any plans to either. You are an example of ignorance at it’s worst.

Once you are finished reading such you will start looking for a authentic book which has nothing but only truth and the pure way of life. Unless you like pornography in your book, it requires direct divine force for you kind of people to get in line of the truth. For true muslim, dont curse and instigate any hatred to these nonbelievers as they surely will be taken care of by the one an only.

    To those who say Islam is a religion of peace, I’ve actually read your Quran. It is not. Read your book. Same goes for Christianity. The Bible is riddled with stories of war and famine and suffering. Abrahamic belief systems have been about bloodshed for thousands of years. Saying it’s peaceful now after countless blood sacrifices of people and animals, unnecessary wars and crusades in the names of your One True Gods is fallacious and insulting to the intelligence of rational people.

    With that said, I don’t believe in any political entity claiming any belief system is illegal, but then I feel political ideologies are just more faith based systems, so it’s the pot calling the kettle black. What are the other 200 or so religions that have been outlawed in Angola, besides Islam? Is the SubGenius Church among them? Discordianism? Pastafarianism? I’d be more concerned if this involved faiths I actually enjoy.

      what about the pirates
      what about the mongol invasion who killed everything in their way.
      i count thousands of what you call political ideologies who killed and filled the earth wit h destruction.

      come on be fair and just , we should not blame religion ( islam, christianity) for the miss use,

        @januk36, today no islamic country is actually “islamic”. HOWEVER, societies that have actually followed its teachings lead the world into the renaissance and many other intellectual revolutions. [read ‘The Ornament of the World” by maria menocal]. while Europe crawled through the dark ages, the Abbasid empire held the largest libraries in the world and the Umayyad empire brought peace and tolerance to spain. By following islam’s economic principles, they eliminated poverty and reduced crime to a negligible rate [read tarikh al-tabari]. citizens could leave their belongings on a country road and come back the next day and find them untouched. America calls itself “civilized” and “developed” yet I cannot even go outside my house at night without getting mugged. This was not the case in the islamic empires.

        Today, the same is true. I can go to saudi arabia and leave my car door open with the keys on the dash and come back the next day and find it untouched. the crime rate in Saudi arabia is one third of the US crime rate [see gapminder.org for stats]. Yes, life is not amazing there, but you have to remember that Saudi arabia [along with most arab nations] was a nomadic society until 1938 [see affluence and poverty in the middle east by mohammed riad]. In 75 years the saudis have come to the forefront of oil production, set world records in various construction projects, their youth literacy rate is at 96%. that means that every child growing up in a city is educated.

        it is easy to look at half the picture, to not criticize your own culture, and to be ignorant. your argument, is completely based on an utter lack of knowledge and critical thinking skills. I was educated in Qatar and apparently they have better standards than the country you are from. Educate yourself not just on your own culture, but also on others’. If you only know your own culture, how can you expect to find what is better. Shouldn’t we all aim to be the best not just average? As a muslim, God command from me ‘Ihsan’ [excellence] not just in my religion, but in all things.

      Zaelkrie: Islams are getting Bigger. Compare the Bible and Qur’an it’s Totaly different. Once you are Christian and you read the Qur’an and understand each words as well you will get the all answer of your question. So there is no question at all why Christian don’t like Islam because they don’t like their people to be convert into Islam.

        It’s the fastest-dying religion, except for the high birthrate and repressif societies, for example if a moslem converts, people make a lynch so he can’t dwell in that district anymore but the same doesn’t happen in civilazed countries and no muslims understand qoran exactly just reading the arabic texts.

    AD 622 – Islam banned in Mecca, followers persecuted!!!
    Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) secretly escaped out of Mecca with Abu Bakr and immigrated to the city of Yathrib, 320 kilometres (200 mi) north of Mecca,
    The first immigration occurred in AD 615 when a group of Muslims escaped persecution in Mecca and traveled to Ethiopia (Abyssinia at the time), which was ruled by a Christian king, the Negus.
    The nascent movement faced growing opposition and persecution.

I pray that we can all live together in harmony as Allah intended. After all we are intrinsicly connected from birth to one another by Adam and Eve. Lets try to remember our similarities and not focus on the negatives. Everybody has the right to worship God/Allah in the way they see fit. We are all accountable for our actions and each have a unique relationship with our creator. I pray we all find peace. Ameen.

    I don’t know why I’ve made it to the comments section again. I usually give this a skip because it’s filled with hatred and anger from either one extreme or the other.

    Regardless, why the entire issue has shifted towards Saudi Arabia is pointless. Saudi Arabia is not a model for any country striving for democracy. It also isn’t a true representation of Islam.

    Secondly, Islam is a religion and not a cult. The Angolan government, like some of you here, need to research your facts on Islam before you spew out verdicts on what Islam is or what it represents.

    Thirdly, since you’re concentrating on the 80,000 migrants who are Muslim, perhaps you should take the 260,000 Chinese living in Angola into consideration too. Surely that might have major cultural impacts.
