If a woman wore pants or leave the hair not covered in public places, or talked to men who were not her relatives, she could be punished by flogging.

Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok said that the dissolution of the party Bashir is not an act of vengeance, but a measure aimed at maintaining “the dignity of the Sudanese people”. The public order act he called “an instrument of exploitation, humiliation, violations, aggression against rights of citizens.”
