Many human rights organizations remained silent about Sheikh Zakzaky/Shia Muslims under pressure anywhere Wahhabis are present: Shafaqna’s interview with an Africanist

The history of Shia Islam and Sadat’s presence in Africa dates back to the time of the Infallible Imams (AS); this is why Shia teachings have much in common with the nature of the African people and their traditional culture. In the last decades of the twentieth century, the Shia school came to the attention of the oppressed nations of the Black Continent. Indigenous African missionaries such as Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky, using the devotion of the indigenous people to the Ahlal-Bayt (A.S) and the promotion of peace and peaceful coexistence between religions were very successful in converting of African Shia newcomers to the school of the Ahlal-Bayt (A.S).
