Le Professeur Tariq Ramadan interdit d’entrée aux Etats-Unis : pétition pour défendre la liberté d’expression académique.

En février 2004, le célèbre intellectuel musulman Tariq Ramadan été engagé par l’Université de Notre

dimanche 12 septembre 2004

 

En février 2004, le célèbre intellectuel musulman Tariq Ramadan été engagé par l’Université de Notre Dame (South Bend, USA) et le Kroc Institute of Peace à la fois comme Professeur d’études islamiques et comme « Luce Professor » chargé du programme « Religion, Conflit et Promotion de la Paix ». Un visa de résidence et de travail (H1) lui été initialement octroyé le 5 mai. Quelques trois mois plus tard, le 2 août 2004, soit exactement 9 jours avant son départ pour les Etats-Unis, l’Ambassade américaine à Berne (Suisse) informait le Professeur Tariq Ramadan que le Homeland Security Department venait de révoquer son visa. Aucune explication n’a été fournie à ce jour.

 

Cette décision arbitraire laisse le Professeur Tariq Ramadan dans l’incapacité de remplir ses responsabilités universitaires et en premier lieu de dispenser son enseignement sur “L’Ethique musulmane” prévu pour le premier semestre d’automne 2004-2005. Si la situation persistait, cette décision l’empêcherait également de participer à un grand nombre de conférences, entre autres les 12 et 13 septembre à l’Université de Stanford à l’initiative du France-Stanford Center for Interdisciplinary Studies  ; le 27 septembre à New York à l’invitation de l’ancien Président Bill Clinton ou encore les 19-21 novembre en Floride à l’invitation de William S. Cohen, ancien Sénateur et ancien Secrétaire de la Défense des Etats-Unis.

 

Nous, les soussigné(E)s, considérons que la révocation du visa du Professeur Tariq Ramadan est une atteinte aux libertés civiles et à la liberté d’expression académique et exigeons que cette décision soit reconsidérée sans délai.
