New agreement gives hope to Sudanese Christians

Sudanese military and political leaders have signed a new agreement to establish a civilian government in the Islamic country. This agreement can help Christians achieve religious freedom.  

According to the State Department, Christians represent only 3 percent of the 43.1 million people in this Muslim country, where the Sharia law applies. “In an environment where Islam is the main religion, anger and retaliation always fall on the churches,” says a Christian pastor who wants to remain anonymous for safety reasons. 

The agreement establishes three authorities, according to the Middle East Eye, including a sovereign council, a council of ministers and a legislative council. The key is the sovereign council, which will include five military and five civilian members.
