“Jihad Within Young Hearts: Toward a Positive Engagement." is the title of Tarek Ramadan's lecture to be delivered on Sunday in Livonia. Ramadan is considered to be one of the most influential Muslims in the world.
The scholar was banned from entering the US with allegations of terrorist links and academics filed a lawsuit challenging the ban and fabricated charges. The grandson of the Muslim Brotherhood's founder has faced apprehensions and complaints by some critics, however Hilary Clinton's signing of the ban lift has been interpreted as an effort by Obama's administration to reach out to the Muslim world.
Ramadan's talk in Livonia is one of the first in the United States since the ban was lifted.
