The world lost a great man today. إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ
Hugo Chavez, president of Venezuela passed away of cancer. Chavez’s policies of socialism and anti-Americanism and anti-imperialism made him a controversial figure, but it’s clear that under his tenure the ordinary people of Venezuela prospered.
While some of his policies were disagreeable, it is no doubt that Chavez chose his own path and bowed to no one.
His personal charisma, charm and speaking ability, alongside his astute political skills were truly all the characteristics of a unique and powerful character.
