What Has Gone Bad in Sudan's Political Scene?

The first time I wrote Sudan's Political Scene, I published it in a hurry. Just to admit. Therefore, it was fearfully bad. Now here is a revised version of Sudan's Political Scene. Please read it and, well comment on it. You can upload pictures too with some descriptions to that political scene.

The following lines about the political scene in Sudan follow the political development in the country since the forties until this moment. Those lines reflect the root causes of the political problems in Sudan, and perhaps may give the answer to understand the political situations now and the impacts of sectarianism in a traditionally considered Muslim environment.

However, this consideration came from the prospective Islamic atmosphere in the north, east and west of the country. It is from this prospective that the wrong concept of Arabic Sudan rose to favour the north although people in the north are not pure Arabs.

The sectarian powers invest to gain exposure since the forties and they have developed the prospective Islamic atmosphere to help them grow their wings and they depend primarily on traditionally and almost illiterate Muslim people in the north to dominate the political scene in Sudan through that time.

This was the easiest job for the traditional sectarianism to invest in the business of politics to continue dominating that peaceful society and hence present themselves as spiritual leaders of that society. They knew pacifism, simplicity and the atmosphere of political illiteracy would help them sediment their beliefs deep in this society in the north, which then was the heart of the political power.

It was also at that time, another political power began, influenced by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt to invest in the propaganda of Islam in a different way and to be the possible alternative to sectarianism. They knew the spiritual nature of the people in the north, east and west of Sudan.

The presence of this political power, that claims to be the only group that cares about Islam, was planned after the independence of Sudan and through the political decades to marginalize the sectarian power and build membership from the bases of that power.

However, there was a hope in that time when the Sudanese Communist Party (SCP) emerged to lead and energize the movement towards the independence from Britain. It was normal that time to see some communist youths from traditionally Muslim houses leading the demonstrations of the independence.

All of these powers except the last one invested in the business of politics, to get their followers pay rations and charities through donation boxes on their tombs, work for them on lands and build wealth for them for the sake of having some blesses from the spiritual leaders.

They constructed the two traditional parties to grow this business and prepare to claim the political power after independence. In that political scene in Sudan, it was common to see people make great efforts to serve the sectarian powers and feel that they obliged to do so.

Therefore, the leaders of the sectarian powers appeared as the only power that was available in the political scene to work with the British to achieve peaceful shift to gain the independence of Sudan in favour of their own interests.

Meanwhile, the SCP continued to struggle towards getting out of the situation the party found itself on it as minority in the light of the fact that it is hard for it to work in an obsessed society by false Islamic propagandas.

The sectarian parties and the Muslim Brothers worked together investing the illiterate political scene in Sudan to achieve inuring the Sudanese Communist Party by describing the party as infidel and atheist party and imposing the bad picture, the Sudanese dislike.
