Recognition of religion or belief in Somalia
According to the standards set out in the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Federal Republic of Somalia are classified terminal.
Sunni Islam is the state denomination.
Procedures for registration of religious groups remain undetermined while the government has limited capacity to register or otherwise monitor religious activity beyond the capital; no other Federal Members States (FMS) have established mechanisms for registration or recognition of religious groups; this widespread non-existence of recognition or registration procedures perpetuates the hegemonic use of Sunni Islam to subjugate minorities.
Complete dismantlement of the present apparatus of terminally restrictive laws on religious activity.
Establish provisions for recognition and registration and make these available to all belief systems and their derivatives; establish this recognition system in a way that does not place Islam above all other belief systems and groups.
