Egypt’s government on 6 September 2013 dissolved the Muslim brotherhood as a registered non-governmental organization (NGO). The decision was taken in response to a lawsuit that argued the organisation had no legal status. The lawsuit accused that the Brotherhood had used its headquarters to fire and store weapons and explosives.

Following Hosni Mubarak’s ouster from power in 2011, the Freedom and Justice Party, the political wing of Muslim Brotherhood had won parliamentary and presidential elections. The army had deposed Morsi on 3 July 2013 in response to mass protests against his rule.

What is Muslim Brotherhood?
The Society of the Muslim Brothers, the Muslim Brotherhood is a transnational Islamic political organization.  It was founded in Egypt in 1928 as a Pan-Islamic, religious, political, and social movement by the Islamic scholar and schoolteacher Hassan al-Banna. By the end of World War II the Muslim Brotherhood had an estimated two million members. It has supporters throughout the Arab world and influenced other Islamist groups with its model of political activism coupled with Islamic charity work.
