Islamic militants have set ablaze auditoriums that was meant to temporarily replace three churches that are victims of arson attack in Sudan.
This was three weeks after a temporary buildings was put in places to replace the places of worship belonging to the Sudan Interior Church, the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church.
A local pastor said to Morning Star News; “This incident is true, the three churches were set on fire twice in less than a month,” He suspects that the Islamic community was feeling disgruntled by the presence of churches in the area — located near the border with South Sudan — and took the action to repel the Christian presence.
However, it was confirmed by the Sudanese Minister of Religious Affairs Nasr al-Din Mufreh that suspect was arrested and he was questioned but was released due to lack of evidence. He insisted that if the fires “occurred as a result of a criminal offense” the criminals will be “identified, pursued and brought to justice.”
“Christian converts with a Muslim background are particularly at risk.” Sudan remains on the top 10 countries that is most dangerous country for Christians to live, on Open Doors USA list.
“A very high level of violence against Christians is evident, particularly in the Nuba Mountains, Darfur, South Kordofan and the Blue Nile State regions where Christians are targeted indiscriminately by government security forces,” reads the group’s factsheet.
Let’s all Christian all over the world remember the persecuted Christians in their prayers
