Takfir wal-Hijra

Takfir wal-Hijra was the popular name given to a radical Islamist group Jama'at al-Muslimin founded by Shukri Mustafa which emerged in Egypt in the 1960s as an offshoot of Muslim Brotherhood. Although the group was crushed by Egyptian security forces after it murdered an Islamic scholar and former government minister in 1977, it is said to have "left an enduring legacy" taken up by some Islamist radicals in "subsequent years and decades." Today, some believe, Takfir wal-Hijra has members or supporters in several other countries, allied to Al-Qaeda. In November 2013, Russian security forces detained 14 radical Islamists suspected of belonging to Takfir wal-Hijra.
