Have you ever imagined a village where many people name their sons as Saddam Hussein? Yes, as per a BBC report , In India, there is a village called Lakhanow in Bihar state of India, where most of the people are Sunni Muslims & people over there, virtually adore Saddam Hussein. In this village there are more than 20 children who have been named Saddam Hussein & in another 27 adjoining villages over there, more than 100 Saddam Husseins are there. There is even a family over there with one son called Saddam Hussein and a younger sibling called Osama Bin Laden.

After the much photographed execution of the Iraqi leader, the villagers of Lakhanow have decided to name all the new born baby boys after Saddam Hussein. As per the villagers, this is their way to pay tribute to their leader, they adore the most. They want to carry on his legacy at least in their village.

As per one local leader Ayub Khan, 'God willing one day our village will be full of Saddam Husseins." "George Bush can hang one Saddam Hussein but we will create an army of Saddam Husseins. Let him come to our village and see how Saddam Hussein can never be executed.'

But there is one problem in having so many Saddam Husseins, says villager Mohammed Hassan Abbas.'In the playground we have Saddam Hussein running after Saddam Hussein, behind Saddam Hussein who is ahead of Saddam Hussein but too far from Saddam Hussein... it can all get a little confusing,' he said.
