OPINION: 70 years of Banna’s assassination, yet his destructive ideology continues

While people were commemorating Hasan al-Banna’s death anniversary yesterday for he was assassinated 70 years ago on February 12 1949 for political retaliation in Cairo, I was thanking Allah for relieving the earth from a person who spread the ideology of modern terrorism.

He was not assassinated for being the harbinger of “truth and liberty”, but he was assassinated “in retaliation”. An Ikhwanul-Muslimeen adherent assassinated Prime Minister of Egypt Nokrashy Pasha in December 1948, so some of the loyalists of Nokrashy Pasha assassinated Banna in Febryary 1949.

He was the one who shaped Ikhwanul-Muslimeen along with another notorious figure Syed Qutb who came after him, who was under the influence of an Iranian-Mullah – Nawab Safavi. Al-Qaeda and ISIS are the organizations that spawned from Ikhwanul-Muslimeen.

But his advocates say, every “evil power” is afraid of Banna’s ideology. I say, the fear is natural—the way we fear devoring beasts, the way we fear the rise of terrorism, the way we fear the death of our fellow Muslims, obviously the Muslim countries fear the rise of Ikhwani-ideology which has caused devastation in some of the middle-Eastern countries.

The reality is—they can’t withstand any opposition, they call any opposing voice to be “Zionist” or “Western agent”, while their history is full of treachery, deceit and backstabbing. In fact, they align with the same Zionists and Western powers to conspire against Muslim Rulers – in order to grab the seats and authority.

What Banna was—the decision rests with Allah, but we Muslims collectively condemn and outcast his destructive ideology of Ikhwanul-Muslimeen.
