South Sudan

South Sudan was part of Sudan before she gained independence in 2011. According to Pew Forum (2012), 60.5 percent of the population are Christian, 32.9 percent followers of African traditional religions, and 6.2 percent Muslim.

South Sudanese Muslims coexisted with non- Muslims in the region for over two hundred years, but this changed after South Sudan gained independence in 2011. South Sudan Muslims continue to be associated with Sudan, and have been subject to oppression based on their religion such as attacks on Muslim
places of worship, women being made to feel uncomfortable wearing religious attire, etc.
