CM terms Saddam's hanging 'unfortunate development'

india Updated: Dec 30, 2006 20:46 IST

Chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad on Saturday described the hanging of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussain as 'an unfortunate development.'

What is more unfortunate is that he has been executed on an auspicious occasion when Eid-ul-Azha is being celebrated by Muslims in Arab world and elsewhere on Saturday, Azad said in a statement in Jammu on Saturday.

Chief minister said that an action seems to have taken in great haste and it is bound to hurt sentiments of Muslims not only but all others who believe in democracy and human dignity.
