Tariq Ramadan Has an Identity Issue

by Ian Buru­ma

Tariq Ramadan, Mus­lim, schol­ar, activist, Swiss cit­i­zen, res­i­dent of Britain, active on sev­er­al con­ti­nents, is a hard man to pin down. Peo­ple call him “slip­pery,” “dou­ble-faced,” “dan­ger­ous,” but also “bril­liant,” a “bridge-builder,” a “Mus­lim Mar­tin Luther.” He wants Mus­lims to become active cit­i­zens of the West but four years ago was him­self refused per­mis­sion to enter the U.S. He could not take up the teach­ing posi­tion he’d been offered at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Notre Dame. Oxford Uni­ver­si­ty took him on as a vis­it­ing fel­low instead. SEE ORIGINAL ARTICLE
