Historical Who is Who

HASAN al BANNA

1904 - 1949
Egypt
RELIGION, POLITICS

 

Founder of Muslim Brotherhood in 1928 – initially a youth club with strong moral and social priorities, and thereafter with the increasingly more radical political agenda. His aims were formulated in terms of Islamic Jihad against foreign influences on Egypt and other Arab countries. He encouraged the development of an extensive network of secret cells, ready to engage in terrorist activities, including assassinations, in the interests of Islamic regeneration. He took up the Palestinian cause. He himself was assassinated. Contention regarding him is all the more acute since he claimed to occupy the moral high ground, but so do his critics, including some fellow-Muslims.
