Womens' Hell is Sudan under NCP rule

In this post I'm just trying to understand how Sudanese people feel about whats' happening to women in Sudan.


Since NCP has came into power by military coup in 1989, Sudanese women in public spheres started to suffer from the suspicious ideology of "Civilization Project" which aim basically to reform the "default" Sudanese identity.

Public order law campaigns since early 1990's are targeting women activists, students, street venders and each woman dare to challenge fake Islamic morals by moving outside home and raising her voice. Even-though during 2000's women human rights violations became more intense. Women living in Sudan, are living in hell.

Very brief list of violations:

  • Nadia Sapon, tea lady passed away when she tried to escape Alkashaa (Chasing by public order police).
  • Lubna Ahmed Hussien, journalist accused of wearing indecent clothes because of wearing trousers.
  • Sylvia, christian teenager harassed by police men and flogged immediately after accused of wearing indecent clothes.
  • Video lady, a video on youtube showing brutal flogging of a woman caught by public order police and how they are joking about her begging for mercy
  • Safia Ishag, artist and activist raped by NISS officials because she participated in mass demonstrations.
  • Awadiya Agabna, a house wife shot to death in front of her house by public order police.
  • Naglaa Sid Ahmed, photographer and video blogger NISS has confiscated her camera; laptop and other stuff. They are harassing her most of the time.
  • Izdihar Gumaa, member of SPLM/ North sector detained arbitrarily several times during this year.
  • Galila Khamis, member of SPLM/ North sector was kidnapped from her house after midnight in her night clothes, she remain in custody till now without facing any charges.
  • Recently Intisar, a minor accused by adultery and will face stoning to death punishment.
Those are few stories of women; some of them have survived and unfortunately part of them passed away. Our reactions as humans are limited to the time of the incident but we tend to forget about it quickly. The day after Awadiya Agbna's murder I talked to a friend saying that NCP would never survive after this brutal killing. We can not keep silent anymore but we did. For me those violations never came out of my mind. I always regard the suffer of any woman as a personal suffrage. I feel somehow responsible to relief them and free myself from feeling threatened or being guilty when taking no action.
