Who was Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani?

Sayyid Jamāl ad-Dīn al-Afghānī, also known as Sayyid Jamāl ad-Dīn Asadābādī, and commonly known as Al-Afghani, was a political activist and Islamic ideologist in the Muslim world during the late 19th century, particularly in the Middle East, South Asia and Europe. One of the founders of Islamic Modernism and an advocate of Pan-Islamic unity, he has been described as "less interested in theology than he was in organizing a Muslim response to Western pressure."
