Being a part of Muslim world, I do feel it. Saddam has been a hero of Muslim world. I know people of my age in Pakistan whose names are Saddam Hussain, just because their parents supported Saddam and gave his name to their children. As Saddam always supported India and never supported Pakistan on the matter of Kashmir, therefore, Pakistan's government never supported him. > Why peace-loving people would support a fruitcake like Saddam is beyond me.
