VIDEO: French Judge Orders Jail for Islamic ‘Reformer’ Tariq Ramadan Over Rape Charges

A judge in France just ruled that a prominent Islamic scholar arrested and jailed on preliminary rape charges must stay behind bars.

The ruling was apparently fueled by the recommendations of the prosecutor’s office.

The case involves Tariq Ramadan, who was placed under investigation just a few days ago for incidents that allegedly occurred in 2009 and 2012.

Here’s a previous interview with Ramadan:

Robert Spencer with Jihad Watch writes:

I blinked at the AP headline. It is so rare to see justice done to the wealthy and powerful, especially someone who has for so long been the darling of the political and media elites, I couldn’t believe it at first. Ramadan will still likely skate: there are too many well-placed Muslim Brotherhood operatives and sympathizers in the government of France, and governments all over the West, for any other outcome to be likely. Still, the thought of him behind bars must bring some small comfort to his accusers, who have detailed far greater horrors to which he subjected them.

It is useful to remember that some people knew for years about Tariq Ramadan’s behavior. Bernard Godard, who was the “Monsieur Islam” of the French Ministry of the Interior and knew Ramadan well, said: “That he had many mistresses, that he consulted sites, that girls were brought to the hotel at the end of his lectures, that he invited them to undress, that some resisted and that he could become violent and aggressive, yes, but I have never heard of rapes, I am stunned.”

Why didn’t Godard act, knowing that “some” of the women whom Tariq Ramadan “invited to undress…resisted and that he could become violent and aggressive”? You know the answer: “Monsieur Islam” was afraid of being smeared as an “Islamophobe.” Tariq Ramadan’s entire rise to positions of influence and power can be attributed solely and wholly to his pose as a “Muslim reformer,” and to the Western intelligentsia’s avid desire to showcase such people in order to show that they are not “Islamophobic,” and are on board with the diversity/multiculturalism project. His rise certainly cannot be attributed to his wisdom and insight.

This was the story from AP:

A French judge decided on Tuesday to keep prominent Islamic scholar Tariq Ramadan in detention, four days after he was handed preliminary rape charges in cases alleged by women who sought his counsel.

A judicial official, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about the cases, said the decision followed the recommendation of the prosecutor’s office.

Ramadan was placed under investigation on Feb. 2 for an alleged rape resulting from a 2009 encounter and for the alleged rape of a vulnerable person in a 2012 case. Both women filed the complaints last year.

Ramadan, in custody since Jan. 31, denies any wrongdoing.

Ramadan had sought to buy some time before the judge ordered him kept in decision, saying last week after being charged that he wanted to postpone the required “debate” before any decision on remaining in jail. The tactic apparently didn’t work.

Ramadan, 55, is on leave from Britain’s Oxford University, where he is a professor of contemporary Islamic studies. He travels frequently and has written numerous books on Islam and the integration of Muslims in Europe.

It was not known how long he could remain locked up. Under French law, the order to hold him in “provisional detention” can last one year and include two consecutive six-month renewals thereafter. However, a suspect’s time in custody can be cut short at any time if a judge agrees detention is no longer warranted….

The judicial official said that in ordering Ramadan to remain in jail, the judge was either weighing the well-being of the women behind the case or assuring that the scholar does not leave France while the investigation is in progress. …

Woman accusing Tariq Ramadan of rape under police protection, gets multiple death threats

“In her complaint, Ayari mentions the fact that she was called a ‘whore, paid by the Jews and the Zionists.’”

Of course. Who else would possibly care that the “Muslim Martin Luther,” Tariq Ramadan, could be a serial rapist?

But note well: this is the kind of abuse anyone and everyone receives if he or she stands in the way of the Islamic supremacist agenda. This is a different manifestation of the same phenomenon that has foes of jihad terror smeared as “bigots” and “Islamophobes.”

“French woman accusing Tariq Ramadan of rape placed under police protection,” AFP, November 23, 2017:

Henda Ayari, the first woman who came forward against Swiss Islamist thinker Tariq Ramadan on rape allegations, has been was placed under police protection after receiving death threats and insults, her lawyer said on Wednesday.

According to the lawyer, the former Salafist-turned-secular feminist has been harassed for nearly a month via messages on Facebook and Twitter, her answering machine, and by people who come ringing at her home.

“This is not trivial, these facts are punishable by three years of imprisonment, it must stop,” Jonas Haddad, Ayari’s lawyer, said.

Rouen prosecutor Pascal Prache confirmed the complaint and presence of death threats and said that the investigations are ongoing.

In her complaint, Ayari mentions the fact that she was called a “whore, paid by the Jews and the Zionists”….
