Hates off Real Saint

2 Guru Gobind Singh Guru Gobind Singh; born Gobind Rai, was the 10th Sikh Guru, a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher.

Sacrificed his whole family to fight against justice. He lend his son's life, mother's life and his own. Today, if there is any reduction in injustice and crime, it's because of him. He was one man military. He said "If you can gain justice with peace, do it. But if you can't, raise your voice and hold the sword."

I've seen many people talking about dirty about Sikhism and swearing to our god. He has told one, there is no heaven and no hell. Whoever dies, he soul will automatically come to god's house. Death is the biggest punishment of all time and visiting god's house is the biggest forgiveness anyone can achieve.

In his name, we all live and achieve the light of love. He drives out all darkness from life and gives eternal happiness. His was the greatest leader of yesterday, still is the greatest leader of today and will be the greatest leader of tomorrow.

An inspiration! Sacrificed himself & his family to save the freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of choosing/practising religion.

3 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was an American lawyer and statesman who served as the 16th president of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in 1865. Lincoln led the nation through the American Civil War and succeeded in preserving the Union, abolishing slavery,... read more

I don't know who all these gurus are, so I can not vote for them, although they seem like good people. Abraham lincoln is a great leader because he brought america to the right place. without him, america might still be a slave country

Has no right to be on this list, in the first place. Lincoln, is not a true NATIVE American Indian, because he has European ancestry (an invader who originates from another continent).

He helped to free the slaves. He basically defined freedom. He fought for his principals and ethics, he fought for what he believed in. That is what makes him a great leader.

4 Alexander the Great Alexander III of Macedon, commonly known as Alexander the Great, was a King of the Ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon and a member of the Argead dynasty.

Shame on all of you who support Gurmeet Ram Rahim as a leader. A pervert and a rapist he is, you compare him to men like Buddha and Bhagat Singh!
By far and wide, Alexander the great established the largest empire of the world by taking a handful of people from Macedonia. By the virtue of leadership, Alexander is an unparalleled leader.

The only one man who head down half of the world. Where he attack win win and only win the winner is his blood. Salute man

He is Greek Emperor, if he knew that America exists, it would be his now. A true Emperor...

5 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4).

According To The Christian Bible, Jesus' purpose on Earth was redemption and salvation. While He was on Earth he healed the sick, brought the dead back... read more

He is a leader still with us. God's only begotten Son, inspired many, without any intention to lead, but to reconcile us with God - who initially planned to wipe us out. He decided to send His son Jesus instead. Jesus was so influential a crowd was rousing up, ready to start a revolution & place him in charge, but upon recieving word of this, Jesus slipped away, as He intended to save our souls & provide us with a means to reconcile with God the Father - not rule. His wise words are like no other, & His teachings contain far more wisdom than anything taught by Buddha (who atheists like to point to), & unlike Buddha, he was a leader in every sense of the word. Not that He cared about numbers, but their free willing loyalty - to the point He even said things to thin the numbers to all but the most willing. He wanted Disciples - not blind followers who go through the motions.

Of course, an atheist or any unbeliever will say anything to discredit Jesus & His followers. Jesus Himself even warned us this would happen - that we will suffer because of Him. That we are to take up our cross & follow Him. This, before He was crucified. Christianity isn't for wimps.

This is only a small part of His deeds, & there is much more wisdom in the book written of Him & inspired by Him. Even the old testament links up nicely with everything He taught. Undoubtedly He is indeed the Son of God

6 Maharana Pratap Pratap Singh or Pratap Singh was the ruler of Mewar, a region in north-western India in the present day state of Rajasthan.

Maharana Pratap is the tallest of all leaders because he was fighting a cause for the general public. If he could have asked for a easy life he would have got it. But he was a selfless leader who knew with whom he was fighting with, he was a warrior of greatest order. Akbar could not win him in his life despite having many times more strength of the army.

Maharana Pratap was that legend who never surrender against any ruler, He is the person who well what the dignity and honour of the person. He never gave up. On his death even his enemy Akbar also started crying, what else can show how great he was who was very loyal and faithful towarad his kingdom and to the people! Jay Rajputana!

The only person in the history, who never compromised with his soil's freedom! True Legend!

7 Buddha Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha, or simply the Buddha, after the title of Buddha, was an ascetic and sage, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded.

Gautam Buddha was brought up inside a palace, where his father never took him out to show the outside world to him. When he was older, he finally ventured out and saw death, starvation, cruelty, discrimination and lack of wealth. As he was raised for a good portion of his life in his palace, he thought that everyone had a life as comfortable as his, and was confused when he saw what was happening in the real world. He then set out to meditate and discovered the answers to life. Without knowing it, the young Indian started his own religion and his faith spread over Asia, especially in China, Thailand, Malaysia and other nations.

Jai Gautam Buddhaji!

8 Julius Caesar Gaius Julius Caesar, known by his cognomen Julius Caesar, was a Roman politician and military general who played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire.

Victorious against the odds in the Gallic wars, becomes the first roman to lead an invasion of Britain, disposed a pharaoh, defeats one of the great military strategists in history to win a civil war and become the most powerful man in the Western world, his assassination by a descendant of one of the founders of the republic leads to the death of the republic, and birth of an empire that has left many present influences on the world especially Europe, there's even a month named after him a man that stands amongst gods, Julius Caesar is Nietzsches uberman.

He came, he saw, he conquered...What can I say about this great dude? HE built a great empire, but at the time, he didn't have enough time to really develop rome to its full potential. That was Agustus Caesar.

Julius Caesar influenced the forging of the all-powerful Roman Empire.

9 Napoleon Napoléon Bonaparte was a French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the Revolutionary Wars.

Came closer to conquering Europe than any leader in history, including Hitler and the Roman emperors. By the time he invaded Russia most major empires knelt before him. After he was defeated in 1814 he escaped exile and came back for the 100 Days, and convinced the French Army to desert the king in favor of him just because he was so well-loved by the French people.

Sad that most people nowadays only remember him for being short.

He should be number 3 right before Ceasar. He is smart lost lots of battles but did take over. Julius did win every battle but did he take over?. Napoleon was feared by many he is great. He took over Italy how good is that! Of course he is small but fierce he should be number 3.

He should be top 1 or 2. Pull a random dude from the streets. 9 times out of 10 they have heard of the name Napoleon. Those other dudes outranking him? Who the hell are they anyway?

10 George Washington George Washington (February 22, 1732– December 14, 1799) was an American military officer, statesman, and Founding Father who served as the first president of the United States from 1789 to 1797. Appointed by the Continental Congress as commander of the Continental Army, Washington led the Patriot forces to victory in the American Revolutionary War and served as the president of the Constitutional... read more

How can you beat a leader who had the opportunity to rule as a king, and yet choose the life of a humble man? So far I've seen on this list numerous great men of sacrifice, duty, courage, and faith. But Washington embodied all these traits, and instead of sacrificing himself in the war he fought. He choose the hardship of living and building a young nation. Because dying is easy. Living is hard.

He practiced what he preached and risked it all. In the end he was victorious.

Absolutely not. He was a racist scum who once peed in Napoleon's mouth. Imagine a world leader peeing in your mouth! Disgusting as it might sound, he also didn't respect John Adams, HIS FREAKING VICE PRESIDENT, well. He had like 600 or 500 slaves, too.

The Contenders
11 B. R. Ambedkar Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956), popularly known as Babasaheb or B. R. Ambedkar, was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement and campaigned against social discrimination towards Untouchables (Dalits), while also supporting the rights of women and labour. He was Independent India's first law minister, the principal... read more

Greatest human being who first taught the basics of humanity, highly intellectual personality, prepared the Constitution which even today after 68 years of Independence has not only guided India towards prosperity but also has its relevance in today's scenario. All those countries who have respected end Their constitution have progressed well. He was the great person in India who fights for low caste persons. He tried his best for equality in caste. But some people who didnot want it they oppose and that poison is till now in my country. I think that people in our society show it that there is not any differences about caste in there mind but they setup this thinking in there mind internally. It is shame for those people who r like this. We should look the thinking, hygiene and status of quality and qualification in a person.

He did what he wanted. He was a real human being. He was always stritriving for the equal rights amongst all the human. He struggled for equal opportunities to all human regardless of their sex cast or any en equality between them. His way of life will ever be remembered in the history of the mankind on the earth. He drafted and put up the constitution to make India a super country in its own way in the time to come. He will be conquering the hearts of the fundamental people who are always ready to help needy and the helpless. He was a great global genius and super hero in real human domain not merely a stage player. My sincere gratitude to his soul forever!

12 Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father who was principal author of the Declaration of Independence, and served as the 3rd President of the United States from 1801-1809. He was born on April 13, 1743, and died on July 4, 1826, on the same day 2nd United States President John Adams died.

He wrote the ' declaration of independence!

He is a wonderful man

13 Augustus

First actual emperor of Rome and created the Roman Empire he also did it because of Vergil when he made The Aeneid. It help him change the roman republic to an empire.

The creator of the western world. His reforms were revolutionary and he brought Rome to a gold age.

Successor of Julius Caesar, and with Marc Antony, ruled over a vast empire.

14 Guru Granth Sahib

Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is the Guru of all humanity. Shows the path of real truth and indicates that God is one and he is present everywhere. He has no shape, no colour, no body like humans. But he exists and takes care of all species.

Sikhism is not any religion : it is a teaching told by a teacher to student how to live in world & to meet god.
1. Only holy scripture in the world written by religion founders themself, all other scriptures are written after the death of their religious leaders.
2. Only holy scripture in the world, in which hymns are written in love for invisible god in various forms, somewhere in husband (god) wife human soul, as a friend (god), as a father (god), as a mother (god) etc.
3. Hymns are included from other religions also which matches the guru ji's philosophy I.E. From Hinduism, from Muslims. Moreover all major religions of the world are discussed in the Guru Granth Sahib ji.
4. All people around the world who read Guru Granth Sahib ji are Sikhs, whether they are Hindus, Muslim, Christ or etc.
5. New version of all religions is Sikhism, all religions merge into Guru Granth Sahib ji.
WAHEGURU (Everlasting true teacher for world )

15 Guru Nanak Guru Nanak was the founder of Sikhism and the first of the ten Sikh Gurus. His birth is celebrated worldwide as Guru Nanak Gurpurab on Kartik Pooranmashi, the full-moon day in the month of Katak, October–November.

God in human body... He told the world that a soul can unite with god only through love & selfless service for humanity. Without true love for god (divine power) all religious practices are worthless. Religious practices are for generating love but if they are becoming obstacle between you & god, these should be abandoned. His teachings 1. Do your work honestly 2. Recite name of god, whichever you like, 3. Give your share from your earnings for betterment of humanity.
While discovering it is found that guru Nanak travelled whole world in 15th century.
Till now, in this world, he is the only religious teacher, whose teachings are being adopted by all the world in different forms. He has written his hymns in praise of god himself & are in Guru Granth Sahib ji. His all teachings are becoming true with facts & are being accepted by NASA Scientists.

He preached a person is known by qualities & not by number of years he lived, how many people knew him or a king or a great title. He said the main reason of our worries is our ego which controllable by submitting ourselves to HIS COMMAND. No one is good or bad. But power makes him to go beyond his command. In His command there is nothing that is under control of any body.

16 Winston Churchill Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, and a writer.

Winston Churchill, was a Zionist, a cancerous tumor in human form, racist, eugenics, bigot, extremist, terrorist and pure evil. He killed over 2 million Indian's, in the Bengal Famine of 1943-1945, with a racist mind. Around 6-7 million Indians died in that famine. For his part Churchill proved callously indifferent... He was resolutely opposed to food shipments to Bengal and diverted food to Italy for allied forces... Churchill felt it would do no good -famine or no famine, since Indians "breed like rabbits". Churchill, was racist towards India and all Indian's. Churchill hated the Irish and Palestinian's. Churchill, was also racist towards Native American Indian's, Aborigines and Maori's. Churchill, had terrorist plans to invade Eire/Irish Republic.

All British crimes and atrocities, must never be forgiven and forgotten and also never brushed under the carpet, forever. Only racist, ignorant, intolerant, evil and bigoted native-Briton's, will disagree with my comment, because they hate humanity and can't ever accept the evil truth of their poisonous inhumane nation.

17 Ghengis Khan Genghis Khan c. 1162 – August 18 1227, born Temüjin, was the founder and Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his death.

Put simply, I can't think of any tactician that could beat him. Even against modern day weapons and layouts, he would still win. The fact that he could fight and be smart at the same time just goes to show you how great a man he was. He was a harsh but fair ruler, something that many leaders have ever been able to be.

He once ruled over the largest, ever, empire in world history.

One of the greatest leaders he was almost unstoppable.

18 Franklin Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt, commonly known as FDR, was an American statesman and political leader who served as the 32nd President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. A Democrat, he won a record four presidential elections and dominated his party for many years as a central figure in world events during the mid-20th century, leading the United States during a time of worldwide economic depression... read more

Elizabeth was born in Mayfair, London, as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George VI and... read more

This cancerous, reptilian, racist, terrorist, fraudulent and evil woman, has no right to be the satanic mother of 54 nations, (53 of them, looted, pillaged, plundered, exploited etc. , by Great Britain, during the previous millenium - mostly non-white rich and debt-free nations, who are now poor, thanks to their anti-immigrant, adulterous, terrorist, warmongering, greedy, selfish and racist colonial power, Great Britain). Only Anglo-Saxon British people who cannot see the truth and disagree with these comments, are lifelong racists, ignorant, intolerant, narrrowminded, evil and bigoted, and not worthy of being labelled human and also not worthy of their existence on our planet.

20 Ashoka

He is great man he is "Samraat" who owned all India and do justie always.

He give us a good message that for secure our people, city, community, country, we need a strength, soldier instead of making a new religion which make us downward day to day.

You all can easily understand for whom I talking for.
"Jai Shree Ram"

This guy is an unknown however he will be up there with greatest of leaders in years to come. Give it 25 years and he will be sitting in the top half of this list.

Ohh. Master of the universe. He can even defeat Alexander. It was the dream. Battle between him and Alexander. But I am sure he would be the winner. He can even defeat each and every mughal rulers. But unfortunately he died much before that

21 Nelson Mandela Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid activist who served as the first president of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black head of state and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid by fostering racial reconciliation. Ideologically... read more

Nelson Mandela is the Greatest leader of all time! Forgiving his enemy on release from prison after 27 yrs, encouraging and leading the quest for reconciliation not only in South Africa but all over the world. So it is obvious that it is him that ruled over the greatest empire of all time. He conquered the world without a single shot! Even his enemies bowed to him. His principles cut across all and every kind of boundary.

Only truly evil people, who are racist, extremist, ignorant, intolerant, xenophobic, imperialist, anti-immigrant, cancerous, Zionist, warmongering, capitalist, globalist, threatening, support the evil apartheid system and bigoted, who disagree with the fact that Nelson Mandela is a true freedom fighter for his beloved Bafana Bafana/South Africa, hate humanity, should consider comitting suicide or run themselves under a bus.

You have to be a narrow-minded racist ignorant native Briton or an evil non native Southern African of European heritage Afrikaan , to wrongly label Nelson Mandela a Terrorist. Roibe rd Gear id Seachnasaigh Bobby Sands, who was a freedom fighter of Irish origin, was not a Terrorist, but Queen Elizabeth II truly is.

22 Teddy Roosevelt Theodore Roosevelt was an American statesman, author, explorer, soldier, naturalist, and reformer who served as the 26th President of the United States from 1901 to 1909. As a leader of the Republican Party during this time, he became a driving force for the Progressive Era in the United States in the... read more

Should've been re-elected until he died in 1919. He would have made America an enormous force to be reckoned with during the first World War, and had he been in Woodrow Wilson's place he could have done a much better job averting WW2 without that "League of Nations" crap that allowed terrible regimes like Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union to rise.

He stayed strong when the going got rough.

Great leader never gave up or lost hope.

23 Shivaji Shivaji Bhonsle, also known as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, was an Indian warrior king and a member of the Bhonsle Maratha clan.

The great Maratha King due to which today I am Hindu, The king who save Hindu religion from Muslim rulers. The great king who offered same kindness to all people no matter it's Hindu or Muslim and never forcefully converted the other religion peoples into Hinduism, The great example of Ram Rajya and teach all king how to rule to kingdom and how to win heart of your people. Shivaji the great example how to create the biggest empire from nothing...The great King!

If it was not Shivaji Maharaj then today entire south Indian temples would have been converted into mosques like what is the case in North India...Today even Vietnam leaders said that they had won the war against America because they studied and used the tactics of war used by Shivaji Maharaj...Even today he is worshiped as great leader by one and all...All great leaders deserve to be at number one position and I would love to see Shivaji Maharaj at this position...

24 King David

King David ruled Israel at a pivotal period, he established the golden era of Israel
