Saddam Hussein and Mohandus Gandhi

Saddam Hussein, the vicious dictator of Iraq. It is surprising to find that he has things in common with one of the greatest makers of peace, Mohandus Gandhi. Though these two people are the complete opposite of one another, they share the one thing they hold most dear, their religion.

Though Gandhi is dead, his character beliefs and ideals were so much of an impact that they live on even today.

The character of Saddam Hussein has also allowed him to rule, but by means of fear. He is a radical threatening ...
