In 1958, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser laughed at the Muslim Brotherhood and its demand that ALL Egyptian women be required to wear hijabs in public
Gamal Abdel Nasser and the audience agreed on the absurdity of the Muslim Brotherhood request that such a law be imposed on the modern, stylishly-dressed women of Egypt at that time.
After a failed attempt to assassinate President Gamal Abdul Nasser in 1954, the Muslim Brotherhood were blamed, banned, and thousands of members imprisoned and tortured. But the Brotherhood came back to power in 2012, with Mohamed Morsi becoming president after the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, aided and abetted by Barack Huseein Obama. In 2013, Morsi was overthrown by the Egyptian Army and the support of the Egyptian people, after which he was replaced by General Abdul Fattah al-Sisi (often called the “new Nasser”), who once again banned the Muslim Brotherhood for being a terrorist organization.
