“Tariq Ramadan called [Muslims] to vote for François Hollande. Tariq Ramadan—the man I debated, and who proposed a ‘moratorium’ on the stoning of adulteresses. It’s monstrous! That’s the man calling to vote for François Hollande. I haven’t heard Mr. Hollande say that bothers him!” –TF1 television interview, April 25, 2012.
Influential Islamic and Oxford professor Ramadan (who is Swiss, not French) says he has never endorsed Hollande, and no call of support for the Socialist candidate is in any of his recent writings or speeches.
