Muqtada al-Sadr

From dKosopedia

Zealous Iraqi Shia Muslim leader, believed to be about 30 years old. He is the son of Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Sadiq al-Sadr, himself an important Shia leader, who was killed in 1999 along with two of his other sons. Muqtada al-Sadr has capitalized on the following of his late father to amass a power base in Iraq under the American occupation. One group of his followers is organized as the paramilitary al Mahdi Army. He also published the al Hawza newspaper, which was shut down by Coalition authorities on March 28, 2004 under charges that it was inciting violence.
