Spittoonwatch profile: Editor Faisal Gazi -self described apostate writing about Islam and Muslims

Faisal Gazi is a self-confessed apostate. You lot like to hide behind the cover of “but we are Muslims, so if we say it’s okay to force Muslim women to rip off their hijabs, then it’s not racist or xenophobic!” You are about as Muslim as Rush Limbaugh. There is more to being Muslim than having been born with a Muslim name to hide behind.” http://www.pickledpolitics.com/archives/7095#comment-190075

Are we indulging in disgraceful Takfir?

Here are words straight from the horses mouth (Gazi under his psedonymn Sid)

“Sid — on 27th November, 2008 at 12:06 pm  

bananabrain, I would rather not regard myself as an apostate, even though I may be one technically, because I would like to see my children grow up.”http://www.pickledpolitics.com/archives/2516#comment-137211

as another PP contributor Ashik comments

“Platinum, I can well understand your confusion about whether Sid is acquainted with the fundamentals of Islam. Perhaps Sid’s comment (no. 57 on his ‘Saudi Pecking Order’ thread) will illuminate matters: ‘bananabrain, I would rather not regard myself as an apostate, even though I may be one technically, because I would like to see my children grow up’. When writing articles about Muslim-related issues (as Sid often does) perhaps it would be instructive to mention that the writer Sid considers himself possibly to be an apostate. I’m sure we can agree this will have an impact on his (universally negative) viewpoints on Islam & Muslims.”
