The Politics of Myth Exposed in Sudan!

The politics of myth in Sudan became a myth since 1983; the day the third dictatorial regime of Jafar al Numeri implemented what they call the Sharia Laws, influenced by the National Islamic Front (NIF) to destroy the secularity of the state.

However, Numeri and his followers in the military elites know that the myth control the lives of almost two third of the Sudanese people. Therefore, they use it to claim power and keep in power for long periods.

This politics of myth is still to be the root causes of the entire political problems the country experiences today.

Well, the Sudanese people have reputation regionally by their dignity and hospitality, and there are many stories in the social life and the folklore that tell about people who stayed hungry to feed their guests.

However, they have short time to think about the relation between the practical politics and the myth, or the religion and the myth.

While the myth as legendary concept takes its persistence in the collective public memory, the spiritual leaders of the religious and sectarian parties use it to influence the people and attract them to be followers.

They use it even to promise people by having good second life after death, claiming that they have the keys of the Paradise. This was important fact that connects simple Sudanese people to their spiritual leaders, while the leaders use this policy of myth to build wealth and power in the first life.

It seems like a tragicomedy!

When people became hungry, they always think of religious reasons that caused them to starve. When they had troubles, they also go back to religion to think of what has gone wrong or what wrong they did to experience these difficulties. They think that God punish them because they committed something wrong.

The real players that develop the politics of myth and connect it with the religious myth stay always far away from being the causes of such situations, until some sincere intellectuals come to unfold the secret policy of the myth and say there is no any reason for such connection between politics and religion.

However, every time those intellectuals come to speak about the policy of misleading and the causes of the political problems, the leaders who plan the politics of myth motivate their followers by claims accusing those intellectuals of communism.

If we accept that the crises of nature happen by fortune and neglect any scientific reason for such crises, there is no reason to ignore accusing the political leaders in the political power of lacking the right national resolutions to the impacts of those crises, by enhancing the entire infrastructure in the country.

That is one example and of course, there are many examples in the political life in Sudan today, all of which are good to prove that realities are stronger than the politics of myth, the ruling elites use to dominate simple people like the Sudanese people.
