Muslim scholar to press on with lectures

Tariq Ramadan 5Britons of all races must pull together to promote a common understanding, a leading Muslim scholar said yesterday. Professor Tariq Ramadan said only a shared dialogue between Britain’s different communities could isolate extremists. He told the Guardian that he intends to press ahead with his lecture visit to London and Birmingham despite calls yesterday from the Sun for him to be banned from the country.
