Muslim Brotherhood In Europe
Muslim Brotherhood entered Europe in the 1950s, driven in part by the crackdown in Egypt by its secular government.
Among the Muslim Brotherhood members to arrive in Europe was a group led by Sa'id Ramadan, the son-in-law of Hassan al-Banna, the founder of Muslim Brotherhood who had been killed by the Egyptian government.

• Forum for European Muslim Youth and Student Organizations (FEMYSO)
