Insha Allah what ever you said at the ‘conference’ shall make changes gradually upon us..Ameen! well that’s all I reallY have to say! Insha Allah Allah will help u n ur family in the Future Ameen!
Allah-Hafiz..Hope to hear you soon! Insha Allah..
Very refreshing: a muslim inyellectual who doesn’t turn away from islam (like Hirsi Ali, Afshin Elian, Ibn Warraq etc.). Hope the future whil bring more of these well educated muslim-thinkers. Keep up the good work, mr. Ramadan!
‘The most appreciated one is not necessarily be the one who make you feel good, but is the one who shows yours wrong doing’’ I am confident that Tariq has the ability with justification to demonstrate wrong doing within any scope of life when its come to policies and implementation and pray for his progressive continuity.

Souvenez – vous Mr Ramadan Selon que vous serez puissant ou miserable les judgements de court …
Pourquoi vouloir entrez dans cette lutte mediatique a la maniere de bhl ? Par donnez la comparaison peu flateuse …
Mon sejour Oxford etait genial j’espere que vous penserez a ne pas quitter cet environement propice a l’epanouissement de votre pensee philosophique puis un jour … La sagesse
what I personally like about, Mr Ramada he always go to point without apologizing, when we said the truth, we didn’t need to apologizi to anyone.
This man is a well-spoken, extremeley well-read Muslim and Araba man, everything he has written ( that I have read) or said makes complete sense, and is intelligent and adresses your intellect, unlike the rabble on TV, and that is the principal reason why his thoughts have been constantly misrepresented and his name dragged in mud by the vile hounds on French TV. There may be racists in the UL, but there is no way they will prevent a person from speaking or working in the harsh and dishonest manner that we see in France. I am glad the man had not been broken when they had tried to set him up after he had left his job in Switzeralnd and had planned to go ( on invitation) to the USA, instead ending up in such a historically high-minded place like Oxford. Well done, Mr. Ramadan and God Bless!
Assalamu alaikom. I think you are a prominent Scholar in World-wide. Barakallah fi ilmik wa amalik.
