Sudanese uprising, April 2019

Saturday, April 13, 2019 (PW) — Arab Springs and Africa revolt has been fruitful political movement since it started back in 2011! For the last 3 months and so, Sudanese have been protesting and lately moved and picketed in strategic national institutions such the state house and the  military headquarters.

Given the history of Arab Spring and African revolt that went ugly, one can at least credited Sudanese protesters and military generals for putting their national interest first. At this juncture, Gen. Omer Hassan Ahmed Al Bashir should not be totally demonized as the worst dictator more than other dictators that fall before him.

When Al Bashir came to power in 1989, He fought a very fierce war with South Sudanese/SPLM by using jihadists as tools to achieve their NCP political goals to Arabize and Islamize the whole Sudan .His NIF/NCP had capitalized on Islamic principles as mean ways to assimilate southern population who are non-Arab and non-Muslims to make Sudan into Arabian and Islamic country.
