Tanwir’ism denomination, refers to the presence of Astronism in the Republic of Djibouti under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Djibouti, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Djibouti oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Djibouti is split into six administrative regions and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Djibouti, which will be one of only two observatories in the country.
History of Astronism in Djibouti
As of November 2019, Astronism is not recognised as a religion by the Djiboutian government and the Astronist Institution holds major concerns regarding the religious liberties for Astronists in the country. For this reason, the circumstances in Djibouti for Astronists have been designated as terminal by the Astronist Institution in its 2020 Astronist Freedom report.
From data retrieved in 2019, the number of Astronists in Djibouti has been estimated at only 100 people which represents only a minuscule portion of the population. Two principal reasons for this include the lack of accurately translated Astronist materials into Arabic as well as the violations of religious freedom in Djibouti.
