Muslims are upset that 80 mosques are about to be destroyed.
This may be a direct result from the radical Islamic terrorism that’s happened and this country is taking a stand against the violence, crime, and rape that too very often comes from Muslims.
BUZZPO – The African nation of Angola has become the first country in the world to entirely ban Islam. Angolan Minister of Culture Rosa Cruz e Silva stated that Islam is “contradictory to the customs of Angola culture,” and so it cannot exist in the Christian nation.
“The process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human rights,” Silva told reporters. “Their mosques would be closed until further notice.” All of the more than 80 mosques in Angola are set to be destroyed.
Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos called the move “the final end of Islamic influence in our country.” The Angolan government has fully backed the decision, saying that Islam is not a religion, but a sect.
It’s a hard decision to debate because there are Muslims who don’t commit acts of terror or crime. If those Muslims fight against the violence, then they usually get killed as well.
It is a shame that some people feel that violence is necessary. Whatever happened to peace? Why can’t some groups make a difference in the world without feeling like they have to blow something up.
How about making a positive difference?
After terror attacks, people go back to their lives. Terror attacks don’t have a lasting appeal to them. They happen, people recover, people move on. That’s just how it is because people are resilient.
When terror attacks happen, it gives people a negative idea of that religion.
That can be changed, but it has to come from within that group and they have to be willing to make that change.
