Ramadan is a professor of Islamic studies at Oxford University and has lectured at Geneva University, where he also studied.

He was born in Geneva in 1962. He is a controversial figure. He’s written books urging Muslims in Europe to stop believing they’re a minority and has also penned controversial anti-Israel articles.

Some see him as a dangerous Islamist who hides behind a façade of intellectual respectability.

Two allegations of rape have been filed in France and preliminary investigations have started.
