The #FreeTariqRamadan case: International call for urgent action

Dear international partners,

Here is essential information about the Tariq Ramadan case. It will help you take action, and alert your constituents, partners and the media.

Tariq Ramadan has suffered a flagrant denial of due process at the hands of the French legal system. Court investigators and the media have trampled the fundamental principle of justice: presumption of innocence.

If women’s reports of sexual abuse are to be taken seriously, they must be tested in a court of law. Tariq Ramadan has declared that he is innocent of the crimes he is accused of and insists on a fair hearing. Given the irregularities that have taken place to date, there is reason to doubt he will have such a hearing.

We call on you, our international partners to speak out clearly on what has emerged as a clear travesty of justice. Attached are the basic facts of the case:

Sincerely,

The Tariq Ramadan defense committee

In The Accused a cheerful & sporty dancing woman was raped by four men. Brother Tariq, who is to my belief a happy-go-lucky philosopher-da’wa teacher, could have been raped by the four women who accuse him of doing so. “I” have had the experience, being on “medicine” of being raped whilst being “treated” with rape & twist of my mind, soul, body and being a medium on “medicine”…“being” to suit the reality of others whilst not even being allowed to be. The severity of this kind of rape experience which is unfathonable for others to comprehend because they are not “treated”, is far worse than if I had been in a natural state of being. Rape takes time to get over it, with the healing of pain. When being “treated”, such as in “my” case, there is no time for healing…there is just a continual vicious circle of “being” and being allowed to be raped for the fools in their fool’s paradise in which “I” had to and may still be used. “I” am all too often the mirror for the others, and not known as really being, not being able to be an active Muslima in this life, not being able to dance, my luck becoming unlucky, and not being able to help free my brother Tariq. May Allah help you brother Tariq to be, to be free, with dignity of being, Amin.

We condemn arrest of Tariq Ramadan by French Authorities and demand his immediate release.
