Tariq Ramadan engaged, in music, in a long diatribe against targets that he does not name … but whose identities we quickly understand. He claims to dedicate his text to “all women and men who have undergone colonization”.
Tariq Ramadan released a musical text on April 3 on YouTube, titled What do you think?, which he dedicates “to all the women and men who have undergone colonization throughout the world”, lasting approximately seven minutes and a half.

In addition, the song seeks broadly to defend migration and in an additional text added to the video, Tariq Ramadan writes: “To migrants who seek to escape poverty and who end up locked up, criminalized and thousands of whom die, drowned in sea waters or dehydrated in the heat of the desert. To all those who are committed to their side and who refuse their silent dehumanization. “
