Senegal – Death of Serigne Cheikh Ahmed Tidiane Sy Al Maktoum, Caliph-General of the Tidiane community (March 15, 2017)

We take note of the death on March 15 of Serigne Cheikh Ahmed Tidiane Sy Al Maktoum, Caliph-General of the Tidiane community, one of the largest Sufi brotherhoods in Senegal.

France shares the grief of his family and all members of the Tidiane community in Senegal and around the world.

We pay tribute to the memory of this great figure who was able to keep the spirit of tolerance and religious tolerance alive.

Christophe Bigot, Ambassador of France to Senegal, is meeting with Serigne Abdoul Aziz Sy Al Amine, the new caliph and brother of the late caliph, on March 20 to express France’s condolences to him.
