Islam is a minority religion in South Sudan. Most Muslims welcomed secession in the South Sudanese independence referendum.[1] The last census to mention the religion of southerners dates back to 1956 where a majority were classified as following traditional beliefs or were Christian while 18% were Muslim.[2]
