VIOLENCE BETWEEN SOMALI STATE AND SUUFI SECT HISTORICALLY UNPRECEDENTED

Many politicians in the era of Alshabab and religious extremism don’t realize that the Suufi religious sect in Somalia has the biggest loyal following. Current Guriceel fighting will have a lasting negative effect on the relationships between the state and the group, no matter who wins in this confrontation.

It is historic conflict/violence between a Somali Government and Suufi Sect. The Suufi group was a traditional ally of the state against other radical groups. The size of this fight in Guriceel is a new political development in Somalia. It could herald dangerous trend of delegitimizing the state. From now on, expect Somali government as an isolated secular entity.

Galmudugh conflict, public mistrust and hard feelings so created in this crisis are unlikely to be settled short of full power-sharing between parties.
