Social Justice in Sudan Under a Situation of Resource Mismanagement

Gassoum Khairi Bilal Khairi


The problem under consideration in this paper is the absence of social Justice in Sudan under a situation of socio-economic underdevelopment and resource mismanagement.  As it is well known, Sudan is a country endowed with plenty of natural and human resources.  Major among these resources is the abundant fertile vast land area, with plenty of water sources such as the River Nile and other rivers and water sources.  Despite all these endowments, the Sudanese people are living in a state of war and internal violence since Sudan gained its independence in 1956.  The lifestyle of the Sudanese people, who are mainly preoccupied in farming and animal breading, is overwhelmed by poverty. Unfortunately, this state of poverty is seen as a mere outcome of unfair distribution of wealth, education and health service and investment and employment chances.This paper discusses the underlying reasons for the absence of social just in Sudan. During the past thirty years of Sudan the ruling regime have been raising the slogans of Islamic Sharia rule, whereby they claim that they will develop the economy of the country and improve the shares of individuals from the revenues of the country. Unfortunately, things are not handled as per the teachings and rule of Islam which had known social justice almost more than one and a half century ago.The western countries have been applying social justice policies in a very well-tailored and applied on their entire citizen according to laws and regulations which guarantee a fair share for everyone. Few Islamic models which were applied in some Islamic countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, and Turkey have been successful and fair, unlike the situation in Sudan. In this paper we will provide detailed analysis of the phenomena and give proofs for what went wrong and what needs to be done.

Keywords: Social Justice, Fair distribution, Poverty, Corruption, Islamic verses, Favoritism, Nepotism, Policies. Underdevelopment.
