Christianity now considered a foreign religion in North Sudan

From Creeping Sharia:

Christianity now considered a foreign religion in North Sudan

That would be Islamic Sudan vs. the newly liberated but still very much threatened South Sudan. via Christianity Today
SUDAN Sudanese Christians face more government pressure than ever following last year’s secession by South Sudan. In January, the Ministry of Guidance and Religious Endowments sent a letter warning it would arrest church leaders for engaging in evangelistic activities or failing to register their contact information.
Within weeks, police arrested and beat a Khartoum evangelist, apparently for using his church as his home. Another church leader was arrested when he complained that authorities seized his church’s property and gave it to a Muslim businessman. Religious leaders within Sudan have saidChristianity is now culturally and officially considered a foreign religion in the north.
