According to a new report, Christians in Sudan were arrested for the 'crime' of selling food and tea during Ramadan.
The report claims that more than 10 people received a fine of SDG2,000 ($298) each. Lawyer Ramzi Yahya said public order police arrested them during a campaign last week.
“This is a clear discrimination against Christians and contrary to the slogans of religious coexistence launched by the Sudan Government for the international community,” Yahya said.
In addition, local restaurants have been barred from catering during Ramadan for two years in a row. “Meanwhile there are a considerable number of Christians and other people who excuse themselves from the fasting in El Gedaref,” Yahya added.
