Sudan: Briefing leaflet - Hiding behind Islam: the Sudan Government and human rights criticism

, Index number: AFR 54/052/1994

The Sudanese Government has dismissed criticism of its human rights record as being unfair and arising from a Western conspiracy against Islam. AI believes that the goverment is using the issue of religion to divert attention from the gross human rights violations committed by its forces. AI takes no position on Islam or any other religion; neither does it take a position on the ideological motivation of the Sudanese Government or of its critics.
