Faisal Gazi’s identity crisis

Pity poor Faisal Gazi/Effendi/Sid… this little (and we do mean little) man clearly has a deep identity problem -over his faith and over his country


In the Telegraph Gazi refers to himself as an immigrant and a Bangladeshi


Faisal Gazi, 39, Bangladeshi. IT specialist. Lives in Woodford, Essex. Married. Arrived in the UK: 1999

“I was born in Bangladesh and first came to the UK in 1972. My childhood was split between both countries, and after studying engineering at Leeds University in the late 1980s, I went back to Bangladesh in 1991 to see if I could use the skills I’d gained. I got a job at Unicef, gathering data for its programmes. I also tried to set up an e-commerce website for a publishing company, but became disillusioned by the business culture, which is quite risk-averse.

In 1999, I arrived back in the UK with £40. I’ve now built a successful business as a freelance IT consultant, with clients such as Visa and Penguin. I couldn’t use the skills I’ve gained in Bangladesh.

This report surprised me; it must be inaccurate. I thought attitudes had improved. I must be contributing something to this country as I know how much I’m paying in taxes. I also know a lot of highly skilled migrant executives who must be adding to the greater good.

Migration doesn’t just involve economic benefits. If travel broadens the mind of the traveller, it also benefits the host country. Thanks to migration, Britain is an even greater country, a much more appealing, broader-minded place.

For migrant workers who want to give something back, England is still one of the best places to live. I have a lot of Bangladeshi friends who went to the States in the 1990s and now want to come here.”


Yet on his Neo-Con Europe /Full Fat Mocha profile he describes himself as British

“I write as a British person who happens to be Muslim, not as a Muslim person who happens to be British.”



Gazi notorious referred to himself as an apostate on Pickled Politics

“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

Yet this confused individual elsewhere describes himself as

“I write as a British person who happens to be Muslim, not as a Muslim person who happens to be British.”

So which is it?

No wonder his masters at Harrys Place wrote a headline with the title “Poor old Sid” !
