Quran written with Saddam Hussain’s blood is kept in Iraq’s mosque, gave 26 liters of his blood for 605 pages
Some people termed it as ‘political gimmick’
According to Joseph Sassoon, director of the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University in the US, the Quran was presented to Saddam Hussein in a grand ceremony. Saddam said that he presented the book of Allah by writing it in his own blood. Some people believe that he had thanked God in the form of this Quran because his son survived the 1996 war. Some even call it a ‘political sham’.
Saddam was haunted by the fear of assassination
There were many aspects of Saddam Hussein’s life. In his last days, his behavior had become completely opposite to that ‘Saddam’ who used to give severe punishment to his ministers on small things. In political life, Saddam was always afraid of the fact that he could be killed. His own cook’s son used to check the poison in the food served in front of him so that his cook could never mix poison in his food.
The public spat and American soldiers cried
Not only this, earlier nuclear scientists used to investigate the meat and other food items coming to Saddam’s palace. Their swimming pool was also constantly checked and its temperature controlled. The world saw forms of Saddam that became more apparent after his death. After Saddam was hanged, while the people of Iraq were spitting on his dead body and misbehaving with him, the eyes of 12 American soldiers deployed in his security in the last days were moist.
