Khartoum-SudaneseOnline-Sudan’s Popular Congress Party (PCP) called on its supporters in the capital and other states to defend the Secretary-General Hassan al-Turabi after the latter issued a fatwa “religious opinion” stating that that a woman's testimony is equal to that of a man (Islam considers women to be lying wicked creatures, and therefore1 man's testimony = 2 women's testimony),
The imams of mosques called on the Government to enforce the Islamic law, while the Secretary-General of Ansar al-Sunnah in Sudan called al-Turabi to be killed
The PCP deputy Secretary-General, Ibrahim Al-Sanosi, said on Tuesday that the country needs more independent judgment to keep pace with the present variables, confirming that accusations of Takfir give distorted image of Islam and Muslims and prevent freedom of expression
al-Turabi issued many fatwas in the last years including the Muslim woman has the right to marry a Jewish or Christian man if she wants to, and that it's not forbidden at all, and that the rule that says that Muslim women can not marry non-Muslim men is a bunch of lies aimed to keep women behind/down".
He also said that the Hijab (head cover) is wrongly interpreted, and that it's supposed to mean a cover, as in women should cover their breasts and the sexy parts of their body and not to bind her up completely.
