Angolan authorities plan to ban Islam, which they say is a cult and not a religion.
They see what Muslims are doing to non-Muslims, particularly in Africa, and are taking steps to prevent it from happening in Angola.
The Angolan authorities decided to destroy the mosque Zango located in the urban district of Viana.
The governor of Luando Bento announced in a radio spot that radical Muslims are not welcome in Angola and the Angolan government is not ready for the legalization of mosques in Angola.
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 wold be closed until further notice.”
It should be noted that the Angolan government has made closing of all mosques a priority. The only two mosques in Luanda have already received a warning document signed by the mayor of the municipality of Viana Jose’ Moreno.
95% of Angola’s population is Christian. A quarter belongs to Protestant churches founded during the colonial period, including congregational evangelical church.
This decisive action taken by the Angolan head of state is based on a desire to guard against the rise of the Wahhabi ideology that has created havoc, death and destruction in Africa and elsewhere.
