Despite almost eight years of presidency, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad remains one of the most immature leaders the world has ever seen. He is notorious for his odd personality traits even among the high-ranking authorities of the Islamic regime: fierce rhetoric, use of vulgar vocabulary, hectic gestures, lapse of concentration etc., show not only his risible immaturity, but also his personal abnormality. His nonsensical verbal analogies and parallels, absurd comments, lack of rationality, revolting habits, and odd poises suggest personality disorders common to many fanatical dictators.

At the International Socialist conference in Copenhagen in 1910, March 8 was declared the International Working Women’s Day (IWD), which is now observed as Women’s Day. The idea was proposed by Clara Zetkin, a Marxist, of the then Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD).

Battle for equal rights of women to hold public offices, their right to vocational training, and end to inequity in other areas was the goal. Since then, March 8 has been commemorated as the Women’s Day and is a national holiday in many countries. It symbolizes an age-old struggle of women of all ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds against the long-existing gender discriminations, further expanded by the Abrahamic religions from which Islam blatantly emanates misogynistic heritage.

The behaviour of dictators like Ahmadinejad, Ghadafi, Idi Amin et al., is not solely a funny subject for people, a witty personage for media, and a caricature for satirists. There behaviour has the potential of causing catastrophe for a whole nation. They represent an Islamic, authoritarian or even totalitarian regime, which is morally bankrupt and, thus, they can commit any wrongdoing without any moral scruples.
