128 Haile Selassie I (Ethiopia)
129 Ngo Dinh Diem (South Vietnam)

Ruling against Buddhist majority and as a US puppet didn't entirely save him from being killed. In retrospect, it was the most stupid move, that the US government lethim down. He was the only reliable ally there. That is to some extent explaining the failure in the Vietnam policy.

He is a threat to Indian democracy.

He is a person who has done inhumane things.

He is a extremist ruining secular India.Made number of fake promises before election.But failed to fulfill none.

The best leader throughout Indian history of politicians. Not a single death is noted on his name. Very shamefulness to keep him in a list of dictators...he is able to unite whole world.

Within two years of accession to the throne, using murder and deception as way to having himself proclaimed Basileus, then immediately turned the Byzantine Empire into a terror state. When the citizens of Constantinople finally rose up out of anger and fear did Andronikos try to flee the city, but to no avail. His right hand was severed, and he was starved for several days before finally being strapped to the back of a plague-riddled donkey. Left eye gouged out and several deep stab wounds perforating his body, he was released to all the pent up anger and hate Constantinople had to bear.
