Dhimmitude in Britain and Tariq Ramadan updates from expressindia, with thanks to Fanabba:
London, August 27: A Muslim scholar banned from the United States is to take up a post at Britain’s prestigious University of Oxford, his college said today.
Tariq Ramadan has been elected to a visiting fellowship (general) at St Antony’s College for the coming academic year and is expected to begin work in October.
“Professor Ramadan is an internationally-recognised scholar,” St Antony’s College, Oxford, said in a statement.
“He was named by Time magazine as one of 100 innovators of the 21st century for his work on creating an independent European Islam.
“He was recently appointed to a prestigious chair in Islamic studies in the University of Notre Dame in the US.”
In late July 2004, Ramadan’s US visa was revoked and he was forced to return to his native Switzerland.
