Sudan is a country in northeastern Africa. It is the largest country in Africa. Linguistic diversity is a feature of Sudan. This diversity has become a symbol of multiple identities, religious, cultural, ethnic and Linguistic. Sudan has 597 tribes that speak over 400 different languages and dialects. In 1983 when President Jafaar Numeri declared the nationwide application of Sharia Laws and revived efforts to impose Arabic language and Islamic themed curriculum in the Sudan. A rebellion broke out which turned into a cancerous civil war that continued for more than twenty years. Students they are not allowing them to speak their indigenous Language.
Children got punish in schools if they are speaking by their indigenous languages. Discrimination base on language. There is no fair competition among the students because of that no one from indigenous languages speakers find the way to best universities and faculties(this year no one from Darfur in 100 1 st. The rolling regime continues impose Arabic Language and Islamic, and this leads to the war in Darfur, South Kurdfan and Blue Nile. And south Sudan got separated. The Education system has been changed several time in order to impose their Ideology.
All over the world the most pleasing sight in the early morning hours is to spot groups of young children going to school in their bright uniforms. Any person who is watching them will be filled with fresh energy and hope for the future. Each group will be in a different uniform depending upon the school in which they are studying. What is the scene here in Sudan? In Khartoum and in other towns of the country one will spot groups of children moving during the morning hours, with a bag on their backs or few books in their hands. But for an outside observer none of them would look like going to school. For him these children would look like young recruits going to some army camp. Can we blame that outsider for mistaking our young children as child soldiers? No, because we have dressed them in army fatigues. Faded, poorly fitted, loose army fatigues. A uniform, in which neither the school nor the parents or children take any pride.
They change the system education, the curriculums to military subjects, in order to impose their ideologies. They impose military activities, military training, and military songs, for the students preparing them to military services and send them to war. They changed the names of the schools to militaries and Islamic names. (Ammunition Primary School for Boys). the benefits of joint Military (encouraging people to go to war in order to get the 7 degree and free of the tuitions fees). Lack of access to education.
The conflict flared in 2003 when rebels in Darfur took up arms, accusing the government of neglecting the region. The government responded with a counter-insurgency campaign. Since then, civilians have come under attack from government troops, pro-government militia and rebel groups. The United Nations says as many as 300,000 people may have died. Khartoum puts the figure at 10,000. The violence has also forced Over 1.4 million people still live in camps. Some 300,000 remain in camps across the border in eastern Chad – initially mostly farmers and villagers from non- Arab groups – to flee their homes. The majority are living in squalid camps in Darfur and neighboring Chad.
In 2008 I visited most of the IDP camps in Darfur, especially Zamzam, Nifasha and Abushook. I saw thousands of children gathered in these IDPs Camps, who were in the ages between six and ten. They were of the age when they should have been in school, but now they were outside the framework of education. Families were separated, and so many people I know were lost – including my relatives. People's lives were disrupted and their rights were violated. We were all suffering terribly. The civil war and what it has done to Darfur is undoubtedly against all human rights.
