JUBA, South Sudan — Authorities in southeastern Sudan on Friday arrested a church leader for preaching to Muslims, according to a local Christian group.
Yousif Ayoub Hussein Ali was detained during an open-air worship event in the Blue Nile state capital of Ad-Damazin, according to a press statement from the local General Union of Christian Youth.
Ali was accused of inciting religious hatred and preaching to Muslims, though there is no law in Sudan against proclaiming one’s faith, said a local source whose name is withheld for security reasons. Area Muslims expressed fear that his preaching would encourage their children to convert, the source said.
