Saddam Hussein

Today morning I woke up to the news of the former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein been executed after finding him guilty for his atrocities towards humanity.Hussein’s half-brother and former intelligence chief Barzan Ibrahim, and Awad Hamed al-Bandar, head of the former Revolutionary Court, were also hanged.They were charged with the killings of 148 Shiite civilians in 1982.This has happened just hours before our Muslim brothers are celebrating Bakrid.

And the whole world seems to be divided upon the execution of the former Iraqi leader.Some saying that the trial was unfair which was brokered by US and others that he deserved it for his cruelty.

I’m a bit disturbed and confused by the whole issue ,eventhough I know that Saddam Hussein has done some cruel deeds.  Again the much emotional and controversial debate comes to fore. Should a criminal be hanged, no matter how serious a crime s/he does ?
