The French judiciary charged Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of the founder of the Brotherhood, Hassan al-Banna, after a fifth woman complained against him.
And it was at the end of August 2020, the Islamic preacher Tariq Ramadan announced the establishment of a center called "Shefa" for training on humanity, feminism and ethics, while he is still accused of four rape cases in France.
According to the French newspaper "Le Point", Ramadan said on his Twitter account that a team of more than a dozen teachers will participate in the center's courses and that the lessons will be either "face to face" or remotely. However, a particular "professor" among the 12 attracts special attention because it concerns Jacob Mahey, a former high school teacher in Anderlecht, Belgium.
Introduced by the Shefa Center as a religious scholar and Islamic scholar who will teach faith and belief. However, Mahe was sentenced in November 2019 to three years in prison for "immoral acts" and "physical violence" by the Brussels Criminal Court, coupled with this penalty that he was banned from practicing the profession of teaching for a period of ten years.
At the time, Mahe was convicted of "indecent assault, incitement to debauchery and harassment" between September 2012 and February 2014, against one of his students, a minor under the age of 16 years. It is reported that "the student in question, a Brazilian without a regular residence in Belgium, accused the professor of offering him to his home to have sex," a charge that Jacob Mahe has always denied.
For his part, "Omma" revealed that this teacher, who is ideologically close to the Muslim Brotherhood, was a student of Roger Garaudy, a former French Marxist philosopher who converted to Islam, who described him as his "spiritual mentor." In addition, Yaqoub adopted the case of Tariq Ramadan when he was accused of rape at the end of 2017. Then, on February 4, 2015, a month after the terrorist attacks on Charlie Hebdo, Yaqoub sent an open letter in which he said, "Any mockery does not take into account the sensitivities. (...) makes freedom of expression an offense. "
