Tariq Ramadan the Salafist Playboy
In an article of Marianne, Martine Gozlan draws up a portrait without concession of the preacher Tariq Ramadan.
Several web surfers in favour of the preacher made fun of the “Salafist” title asserting that a Brothercould not be Salafist.
Actually, the Muslim brothers assert Salafist reformists in opposition to the non political Salafists, the Wahhabi and the Jihadists.
Tariq Ramadan himself asserted himself Salafist, as recalled by Caroline Fourest in his book Frère Tariq.
Interviewed by Beur FM in November 2003, he clearly admits belonging to Salafist reformism:
“There are the rationalist trend reformist and the trend salafi with the direction where the salafi tries to remain faithful to the bases. I am of this tendency there, it be-have-to say that there are a certain number of principles which are for mefundamental, that I do not want to betray as a Muslim” .
A few months after this maintenance,as to accustomed, it will reconsider its remarks at the time of a conference of UNESCO.
