Abstract:By the time the British left the Sudan in 1956, few Southern Sudanese people had embraced the Islamic faith. This state of affairs continued until the emergence of the military government of General Ibrahim Abboud on 17 November 1958. Abboud became the first Sudanese leader to conceive and implement programs of Islamization and Arabization in the Southern Sudan. With the use of military decrees, display of force, persuasion, and the deployment of human and financial resources, Islam became visible in the region. General Abboud introduced laws and regulations to end the activities of foreign missionaries in the Southern Sudan and under the 1962 Missionary Societies Act, 150 foreign Christian missionaries were the first to be expelled from the Southern Sudan. Particularly the Catholic Church was hit hard between November 1962 and January 1963 by the expulsions. In 1964, the remaining foreign missionaries were expelled from the Sudan. Notes, ref.
