British Islamist influencer Mohammad Hijab posted a video to his YouTube account on March 30, 2023, titled: “Is Humza Yousaf Muslim?” In the video, Mohammad Hijab reacted to the recent statement by Scotland’s newly-elected First Minister Humza Yousaf, who is the first Muslim head of state in a Western country, that homosexual relations are not a sin. Hijab said that such relations take one out of the fold of Islam, and he called Yousaf a coward, an infidel, and a disbeliever, adding: “You have no right to call yourself a Muslim.” Hijab also said that Yousaf is an “Uncle Tom” and that he has a colonialist mind like American Muslim politicians Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

Mohammad Hijab: "This is something that takes someone out of the religion of Islam. You cannot maintain a subscription to Islam, if you want to call it that. You cannot be a Muslim and say this at the same time. This is a negator of Islam. This is negating a very key verse, or verses, many verses, and a Hadith, a plethora, multiplicity, of different Hadiths, and the Quran and in the Sunnah. This takes you out of the religion of Islam.

[...]

"You are a coward! You are a coward! You are a Kafir, as well! You are a disbeliever of Allah and the messenger in the Quran. You have no right to call yourself a Muslim. You have... you are excommunicated from the religion of Islam. You are out. You are finished. You are done. That's all I have to say about you and if you want to come back to Islam, you have to take back your statement because you are, nobody else on the face of the planet can take part of the book and reject part of it.

[...]

"You're not an anti-colonialist. You have the most colonized mind of all of us. You are an Uncle Tom Hamza. You are an uncle. You are finished. You're done. Do you understand? The only way back is for you to make repentance and clarification. Otherwise, you will be relegated to the trash heap, the dustbin of history. You are just another Uncle Tom. Just another Ilhan Omar. Just another Rashida Tlaib... or whatever her name is, yeah. You're just another one of those people, which you are nothing. Do you understand? If you want to be a real man, you come out with your beliefs and you go into an office like that. Otherwise, you're nothing, and you are nothing because you have left the religion of Islam and the only way back is for repentance and clarification."
