Calling a person a kaafir

Q: Is there a Hadith stating ‘kaafir ko bhi kaafir na kaho’? If so, what exactly does it mean?

A: We haven't come across this hadeeth. In fact, this goes against the Quraan Shareef, since the Quraan Shareef instructs, "Say, 'O Kaafiroon.'"

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
