CAIR-Chicago is pleased to announce that Professor Tariq Ramadan will be the keynote speaker at its 6th annual banquet on April 10, 2010. The appearance of Professor Ramadan will be a milestone for the American Muslim community since he was banned from visiting the United States almost six years ago. Late last month Secretary of State Hilary Clinton signed an order revoking Professor Ramadan's visa ban.
Professor Ramadan is one of the most prominent Muslim academics, philosophers, and social activists in the West. He was chosen as one of the 100 most influential thinkers who shape our lives by TIME magazine, Foreign Policy magazine, and Georgetown University.
