In defense of his brother Tariq, Hani Ramadan cites Islamic law: Rape needs 4 male witnesses


Tariq Ramadan’s brother, Hani Ramadan, is not wrong. Under sharia (Islamic law), rape victims must have the testimony of four male witnesses (as if.…). Remember that when feminists in this country insist that Islam empowers women.

In defense of his brother Tariq, Hani Ramadan stresses that in Islam an individual cannot be found guilty of rape unless there are four witnesses –

Shortly after the Tribune de Genève reported that some of Tariq Ramadan’s former students in Geneva had accused him of rape and sexual harassment while they were still minor in the 1980s and 1990s, his brother Hani came to his defense by broadcasting a sermon on the web.

In his sermon, Hani Ramadan stresses that in Islam an individual cannot be found guilty of rape unless there are four witnesses:

Hani Ramadan (Audio 03:25): “[Translation] Any person who stoops to defamation by accusing an innocent individual of fornication or rape, telling a story that is the product of one’s malicious imagination, and who is not accompanied by four witnesses who clearly saw what happened, faces a terrible punishment whatever the sex of the accused may be.”

Hani Ramadan (Audio 03:25): «[Original French] Toute personne qui tombe dans la diffamation en accusant un individu innocent d’avoir forniqué ou violé, relatant un récit qui est le fruit de son imagination malveillante, et qui n’est pas accompagnée de quatre témoins qui ont vu clairement les choses, s’expose ainsi à un terrible châtiment, et cela quel que soit le sexe de l’accusé.»

The Tribune de Genève / has also reproduced this excerpt in one of its recent articles on the Ramadan affair.

Hani Ramadan made the announcement of his sermon on his Facebook page. The links to the sermon (available in French and in Arabic) are on Hani Ramadan’s blog / Archive.Today.

The France-based Observatoire de l’islamisation has also archived the audio excerpt quoted above.
