He is the grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood movement in Egypt, Hassan al-Banna.

Assange 'hypothetically' free if arrest warrant attraction granted, ruling due February 6
While the Swedish investigation is no longer being actively pursued, British authorities say the Wikileaks founder will still be arrested if he leaves the embassy.
Mr Ramadan, 55, denies wrongdoing and is suing one of his accusers, Henda Ayari, a former radical Islamist who now heads a secular feminist group. I had a great admiration for him for years.
Ayari, who has renounced conservative Islam to become a self-described "secular Muslim", detailed her rape allegations in a book published past year, without naming Ramadan.
But in October she said she had chose to name him publicly, encouraged by the thousands of women speaking out against sexual assault and harassment under the "Me Too" online campaign and its French equivalent, "Balance Ton Porc" (Squeal on your pig).
Ayari then filed a formal complaint with police in Rouen. In November, he directed his lawyer to sue Ayari for defamation.
The allegations against Ramadan emerged in the aftermath of similar accusations made against Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein, which emboldened dozens of women to come forward their own with stories of sexual harassment and assault.
