This is the part I don't understand. I feel this is all a part of his marketing. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the epitome of humility and treating people with respect. Ensar has not been humble in his marketing or conversations on the forums. I don't find anything spiritual or Islamic in his rants. This isn't just about Crime and Punishment. This is about the past 11 years of observing his behaviors. Not just me, but many others who have been turned off by these behaviors.
I don’t place a box around anyone for how I wish their behavior to be. Just like you, I too have an opinion and while it’s different than others on here it won’t change how I feel about his products or the team he works with. We’re all human and we’re all fallible regardless of marketing tactics. I don’t understand the need to change someone’s mind to stop supporting an artisan because they behave differently then what we’d like them to. I’d support any artist that moves my soul to turn inwards regardless of how the public sees them. Also his apology seemed heartfelt and it’s not like anyone’s posted that so at least he has enough humility to admit when he’s wrong.
