    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 39/39=J)

     

    There is no wrong in saying kafir to a kafir if he does not dislike it, but it is wrong if he dislikes:

    لو قال لیھودی او مجوسی: 'یاکافر' یاثم ان شق علیہ، کذا فی القنیۃ (الھندیۃ: 5/348)

    Yes, it can be called in case of need.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
