Angola denies it banned Islam

World Bulletin / News Desk

Angola became a hot topic in the international media over the weekend, as news outlets around the world wrote about reports that the Southwest African nation had banned Islam and had begun to dismantle mosques.

But an official at the Angolan Embassy in Washington, D.C., said that there is no such ban, and that the reports are erroneous, reported the ibtimes.com.

“The Republic of Angola … it’s a country that does not interfere in religion,” the official said via telephone Monday afternoon.

“We have a lot of religions there. It is freedom of religion. We have Catholic, Protestants, Baptists, Muslims and evangelical people.”
