Who is Muqtada al-Sadr?
Muqtada es-Sadr was born August 12, 1973, as the fourth son of Ayatollah Muhammad Sadiq.
Sadr, who studied theology for a while, did not complete his education after he lost his father in an assassination. Two of his brothers were killed by Saddam Hussein's order on February 19, 1999.
In April 2003, the Sadr Bureau established by its supporters in the city of Sadr began to serve. Health, food and clean water are the main types of services they provide.
Sadr, who has always been opposed to the American presence in Iraq, established the resistance organization Mehdi Army in 2003.
Sadr's supporters backed the United Iraqi Alliance in parliament in the December 2005 elections. But in November 2006, Sadr declared that he had boycotted the Iraqi government at a summit in Jordan led by prime minister Nouri al-Maliki and George Bush.
This boycott lasted for two months, then the Sadrs returned to their positions.
In April 2007, Sadr called for a rally in Najaf, demanding that Nuri al-Maliki agrees on a timetable for withdrawing US forces from Iraq.
Since that time, conflicts have continued between Sadr's loyal warriors and the American and Iraqi forces.
Sadr's blog had a strong influence in the 2010 parliamentary elections. (ILKHA)
