15 Of the Most Evil Men the World Has Ever Seen

By Akarsh Mehrotra


The world has seen tragedy in many forms. Wars, genocides, riots, killings, famines and what not. The real evil however lies within the architects of these inhuman practices. Men who advocated crime to a level no one else could fathom. Their decision wreaked havoc on humanity and all that comes with it.

Here are 15 of the most evil people to have ever been born:

1. Adolf Hitler (1889-1945)

The chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer of the Nazi Party, Adolf Hitler was perhaps the most intelligent, creative, and brutal dictators of them all. He was largely responsible for the holocaust and the second World War. He believed that Jews were the root cause of all problems and set out to eliminate them. His actions resulted in death of over 50 million people. Hitler committed suicide in his bunker on 30th April 1945. Hard to believe that he was once a talented artist and part of a Bohemian community.

2. Joseph Stalin (1878-1953)

Iosif Vissarionovich Stalin was dictator of the Soviet Union from 1922 till his death in 1953. As a young man, he was a robber and an assassin. For almost 30 years, he reigned with terror and violence in the Soviet Union. His decisions led to a famine that killed millions. Forget enemies, he even killed families of people who were fond of him. Under his rule, more than 1.5 million German women were raped and in all, he easily killed over 20 million people. He once said, “One death is a tragedy, a million deaths is simply a statistic.” Ironically, he was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 1945 & 1948. He died of a stroke in 1953.

3. Vlad the Impaler (1431-1476/77)

Vlad the Impaler was also known as Vlad Dracula. The character of Dracula was loosely based on Vlad, due to his sadistic personality and cruel acts done to the people of Wallachia, where he reigned as prince three times between 1448 to 1462 and killed about 20% of the population. He impaled the victim through the buttocks till the stake came out of the mouth. A German pamphlet once read: ‘He roasted children, whom he fed to their mothers. And (he) cut off the breasts of women and forced their husbands to eat them. After that, he had them all impaled.’

4. Pol Pot (1925-1998)

Pol Pot was the leader of the Cambodian revolutionary group the Khmer Rouge, which had orchestrated the Cambodian genocide. Pol Pot believed in destroying the Cambodian civilisation in order to start a new regime and usher in a new age. He is probably the only man is history who ordered mass genocide on his own country. During his reign as Prime Minister from 1976 to 1979, his policies led to the death of around 2 million people which was 25% of the entire population. He liked to keep the skulls of people he had killed, and he went as far as ordering babies to be torn limb by limb. He died of natural causes.

5. Heinrich Himmler (1900-1945)

He was head of the SS and the brain behind the Final Solution to the Jewish question, that is extermination of all Jews in Europe. Himmler had ordered the killing of about 6 million Jews, 2 to 5 lac Russians and many other groups that the Nazis believed were unworthy of living. It is believed, not verified, that he had furniture made from the bones and skins of Jewish victims. He committed suicide and is buried at an undisclosed location.

6. Saddam Hussein (1937-2006)

He was the dictator of Iraq from 1979 to 2003. During his reign, he authorised countless attacks on people. His policies made way for the death of not less than 2 million people. He ordered chemical attacks, eye gouging, beatings, and severe shocks on people. He also recorded several tortures and deaths to watch them later. Saddam was found guilty of crimes against humanity and hanged in 2006.

7. Idi Amin (1952-2003)

Idi Amin, who was the Chief of Army Staff, had taken control of Uganda while President Obote had gone to Singapore to attend a meeting. He promised to bring prosperity to Uganda. But a week later, he declared himself President of Uganda. As dictator, he came to be known as the ‘Butcher of Uganda’. He killed people by feeding them to crocodiles, claimed he was a cannibal, mutilated one of his wives and rearranged her limbs. He killed and tortured around half a million people between 1971 to 1979 as ruler. He died of natural causes.

8. Ivan the Terrible (1530-1584)

Ivan was the first Tsar of Russia. As a kid, he used to throw animals from the top of tall structures. Though he was intelligent, he had bouts of rage due to mental illness. During one, he even killed his own heir to the throne. He loved impaling, beheading, burning, strangling, frying, blinding and disembowelling people. Even in friends, he saw his enemies. In the Novgorod Massacre, more than 60,000 people were tortured to death. Ivan died while playing chess with his friend.

9. Leopold II of Belgium (1835-1909)

When king, he ruled over the Congo Free state which was approximately 76 times the size of Belgium. He made the entire world believe that he was going to help Congo. But under his regime, between 1885 to 1908, the country was subjected to a reign of terror. Over 500,000 died of diseases and many died of starvation as well. He killed over 10 million Congolese, which was 50% of the population of Congo. All this, just to gain money and more power.

10. Kim Il Sung (1912-1994), Kim Jong-il (1941-2011) and Kim Jong-un (born 1983)

Kim Jong-Sung was the dictator of North Korea from 1948-1972. He started the Korean war, which resulted in the death of 3 million Koreans. People of Korea were forced and brainwashed to idolise him. His son Kim Jong-il continued his legacy after Sung’s death and Kim Jong-un is carrying on the same as he is dictator now. Millions have died of famine, starvation and execution and some methods of torture have been barbaric. North Korea has suffered from almost 70 years and still suffering from the wrath and policies of their dictators for the 3rd generation in a row.

11. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (1902-1989)

Khomeini was responsible for bringing about the 1979 Iranian Revolution. He was the religious leader of Iran from 1979-1989. The Shia laws were made out to be very stringent and those in violation of it were tortured and killed. He refused the offer to make peace with Iraq, which led to the death of around a million people. The Islamic holy war killed over 2 million people. He succumbed to cancer.

12. Nero (37-68 A.D.)

Nero wreaked havoc in the Roman Empire. He burnt entire cities, murdered thousands of people & every member in his family. People were stabbed, burned, boiled, crucified, and impaled. It is believed that he started the great fire that burned Rome but blamed it on Christians, who were then brutally tortured. Nero committed assisted suicide when he knew the rebellion will be lost.

13. Genghis Khan (1162-1227)

Genghis Khan was the emperor of Mongolia from 1206 to 1227. His bloodthirsty nature led to many victories, such as a large part of China, but also the killing of countless people. It is believed that his men, if out of water, would drink blood from their horses. His army killed 15 million people in the Iranian plateau. A total of about 20 to 60 million people died during his reign. How he died still remains a mystery.

14. Mao Zedong (1893-1976)

He was the dictator of China from 1943-1976. Mao had a dream of making China a superpower but in the process, he created the largest genocide in history. Although he has been credited with modernising China and making it a world power, his actions killed around 40 to 70 million people through forced labour, executions, and starvation. Mao himself succumbed to illness.

15. Maximilien Robespierre (1758-1794)

He was the architect of the French Revolution. As a younger leader, he advocated better life for the people of France. But soon, his obsession with guillotining (beheading using a machine with a huge knife blade at the end) began. His reign of terror has been a famous part of history, he killed over 40,000 people within 10 months and believed that killing was always better than forgiving. He ordered an attack on Vendée, killing over 100,000 men. Ironically for him, Robespierre was also guillotined without trial.

There are many others as well, who have butchered humanity at a level that is unimaginable. Barring the men mentioned above, people like Osama Bin Laden, Attila the Hun, Talat Pasha & so many others have left nothing but blood on the pages of history. Their legacy is upheld by those who think they were right!


Junko Furuta Case: The Brutal Murder Story of a Girl

By Archana Kabra     April 8, 2022


Yearbook Photo of Junko Furuta

This is a real story that can leave you shattered. This spine-chilling story is about a 17-year old Japanese girl, Junko Furuta who was kidnapped, raped, tortured like hell for 44 days, and finally killed in an extremely brutal way by four boys after 44 days in the year 1988. Her body was discovered in a concrete drum, following which her murder case was called the “concrete-encased high school girl murder case.”

We might have heard of many murders but this particular murder story of Junko Furuta has gone to the next unimaginable level of cruelty.

One can never imagine the pain Junko had to go through in her last 44 days of life. Above all, the fact that four high school boys were doing all these inhumane acts was even more shocking and disturbing! Hiroshi Miyano, Nobuharu Minato, Kamisaku Jo, and Yasushi Watanabe are the four boys involved in this horrifying crime.

Junko Furuta – A Japanese Girl Killed Brutally

Junko Furuta was a 17-year old girl studying at Saitama Yashio-Minami High School in Japan. Just like any other normal student, Junko had her own aspirations and dreams which she wanted to fulfill. Not just that, she even had other good qualities for which she was liked by all her classmates too. She neither had the habit of smoking nor drinking. She was also away from drugs.

She was very beautiful. There was a boy Hiroshi Miyano who liked her. He went to Junko with her proposal but Junko denied this proposal upfront. Hiroshi could not take this rejection from her which made him furious and he decided to take revenge on her.

Junko Furuta Story – Here is what happened

On November 25, 1988, as Junko was returning home from her part-time job on her bike, a random boy passed by her and made her fall. Miyano went to her as though helping her. But then in no time and before Junko realized what was happening, Miyano along with his three friends kidnapped Junko.

They took Junko to a house in Adachi, Tokyo which was owned by one of the kidnapper’s parents. The boys made Junko call her parents and say that she ran away, she was safe and that would be staying with some of her friends for a while.

Then started the real torture of the innocent girl by the boys. No one can even imagine the pain they gave to Junko, not even in the worse nightmare. The heartless boys tortured Junko for 44 days. They kept her naked all the time during these 44 days. She was raped by 100 different people more than 500 times.

Junko Furuta was tortured terribly by the boys.

The boys tried all terrifying ways of torturing Junko. They beat her like anything. Scissors, bottles, a hot exploding light bulb, grilled chicken skewers, roasting needles, and irons were inserted into her genitals. They burnt different parts of her body as well. They did not think twice before cutting off her breasts. The girl was even forced to eat cockroaches and drink urine.

The boys crossed all limits in trying to torture and assault Junko. They urinated on her. They even hung her from the ceiling and made her their punching bag. She was made to sleep in the balcony in cold winter. Her stomach was crushed by the dumbbells. Her pain had no end.

They beat her with golf clubs, and iron rods, and even stored her in the refrigerator for hours. They made a number of holes in her body with needles. The cruel boys even burnt har genitals, clitoris, and eyelids with a cigarette lighter. One of her nipples was twisted with pliers. Having so many injuries all over her body, Junko could not even stand due to pain. She had to crawl downstairs to use the bathroom.

After around twenty days of her abduction and torture, Junko somehow managed to call an emergency number to call the police. However, she was caught by the boys who disconnected the call by snatching away the phone from her before Junko could even speak. Following this, she was punished severely by burning her legs. They poured lighter fuel on her legs and burnt them with fire. After that, she could not even walk.

She could not breathe because of a blood clot in her nose. She had internal bleeding and as such she could not even digest the food which led her to vomit. But the inhuman boys even beat her for making the carpet dirty by vomiting.

Junko Furuta – Death

Junko even stopped urinating after around 30 days. Her eardrums also got damaged. Not able to handle this pain anymore, Junko finally begged to kill her and close it all. Finally, the torturers mutilated her on the 44th day of her abduction.

The boys did not spare even the mutilated body and beat with an iron barbell. Later they poured lighter fluid on her face, stomach, legs, and face and burnt with fire. This final torture went on for around two hours. And later that day i.e., on January 4, 1989, Junko finally died.

The saddest part of this Junko Furuta story is that the brutal murderers were neither given the death sentence nor even life imprisonment as they were all under 18. Miyano was given a twenty-year sentence while the other three boys were only seven. All the four boys might have been released from jail by now.

People still remember Junko on social media

It has been more than three decades since this unfortunate incident happened which resulted in Junko Furuta’s death. People still remember the innocent girl and keep her in their prayers.

The Heart-breaking True Story of Chris Watts and His Wife’s and Daughters’ Murders

Netflix’s new documentary “American Murder: The Family Next Door” looks back at the 2018 crimes.




  • On August 13, 2018, Colorado father Chris Watts murdered his pregnant wife, Shanann Watts, and their two daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste.
  • Chris pleaded guilty to the crimes that November and is currently serving a total of five life sentences in prison.
  • On September 30, Netflix is releasing a documentary that examines the case.

The murders of pregnant mother of two Shanann Watts and her daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste, sent shockwaves across the country in 2018. The crimes were heart-breaking and senseless, and their horror was only compounded by the fact that Shanann’s husband and the girls’ father, Chris Watts, confessed to committing them.

Now, Netflix has pieced together raw, first-hand footage for a new documentary that takes a closer look at the case. The nearly hour-and-a-half feature will be available to stream starting on Wednesday, September 30.


Chris’s wife and daughters disappear.

Around 2 a.m. on August 13, 2018, Shanann Watts’s friend Nickole Atkinson dropped her off at her Frederick, Colorado home following a business trip they had taken together. But when Nickole tried to get in touch with Shanann just a few hours later, she couldn’t get ahold of her — and after Shanann missed an ob-gyn appointment, she grew worried. Nickole decided to call Shanann’s husband, Chris, at work. She also called the police.

The police conducted an investigation of the Watts’ home that afternoon, and even though they found no signs of foul play, they did find Shanann’s car and all of her personal belongings. So the next day, Shanann and the girls were officially declared missing, and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) released Endangered Missing Person alerts for them.


The Investigation

In the days that followed, Chris’s story changed drastically. He initially told police that he had no idea where Shanann, Bella, and Celeste might be, and he began giving media appearances appealing to the community for help in finding his missing family.

Meanwhile, investigators from the local police department, the CBI, and the FBI had been going through Chris’s phone records, which showed that he had been having an affair with one of his coworkers from Anadarko Petroleum. Then, on August 15 (two days after his wife and daughters’ disappearances) Chris failed a polygraph test — and that’s when everything changed.

That afternoon, Chris vowed to tell police the truth if he could talk to his father first. Investigators took a gamble and allowed him to do so, and it worked: Chris confessed to his father that he had killed his wife. Not long after, investigators found Shanann, Bella, and Celeste’s bodies exactly where Chris said they were: at an Anadarko Petroleum site, with Shanann’s body in a shallow grave and the two girls’ bodies in oil tanks.

On August 21, 2018, Chris was charged with his family’s murders.


What really happened?

In his initial confession, Chris said that he had strangled Shanann in a “fit of rage” after watching her smother their two daughters, Bella and Celeste. She was upset, he said, because he had tried to talk to her about separating and ending their marriage, and she had retaliated by killing the girls. After murdering Shanann, he took the three bodies to the oil site and buried them, he said.

Come November, however, Chris’s story had changed again. This time, he confessed to killing his wife and daughters and pleaded guilty to all nine counts against him: five counts of first-degree murder (including two additional counts for his daughters because they were children under 12), one count of unlawful termination of a pregnancy, and three counts of tampering with a deceased human body. Ultimately, he was sentenced to five life sentences (three consecutive and two concurrent) for the murders, plus a total of 84 more years for the other crimes.

Although Chris had pleaded guilty to all three murders, he hadn’t yet told the real story of what happened on the morning of August 13, 2018. But in a five-hour follow-up interview with investigators from prison, Chris revealed the truth: After fighting with Shanann that morning about his wish to separate, Chris strangled her to death. While he was trying to bring his wife’s body downstairs, he said, Bella and Celeste woke up and came to ask him what was going on. He then loaded the girls and their mother’s body into his truck, drove to the oil site, and smothered the girls one by one before disposing of the three bodies.


Where Chris Watts is today

Today, Chris is continuing to serve out his life sentences at a maximum security prison in Wisconsin, where he was transferred because of “security concerns” in December 2018.

“When people go out and make things without their input … it does pain them.”

Shanann and the girls are survived by her parents and brother. But Shanann’s loved ones haven’t always been supportive of Hollywood’s take of the horrific acts. Earlier this year, in January, Lifetime aired the movie Chris Watts: Confessions of a Killer, and the family spoke out through their lawyer.

“It’s a false narrative that does not accurately depict who Shanann was in life, who Bella was in life, who CeCe was in life,” attorney Steven Lambert told Inside Edition. “When people go out and make things without their input … it does pain them, it does hurt them.”

Now, a note from this author:

At the outset, I would like to affirm that this post is not intended to offend anyone; it has certainly not been penned with the intention of hurting the feelings of the family members, friends, and the loved ones of the victims of these heinous crimes. I cannot even begin to imagine the extent of their suffering, pain and grief. I would like to humbly extend my deepest sympathy and condolences to all those concerned – I hope you will accept it, in the spirit of utmost sincerity with which it has been offered.

Let it be known that this author does NOT support criminals and their criminal behaviour, in any way. However, it is important to note that people do not become criminals in a vacuum – criminal tendencies are caused by socio-economic, moral, psychological, emotional factors, including hereditary genes and genetics. A lot of factors contribute to people acting the way in which they do – they might have suffered various forms of childhood traumas, mental and emotional torture, physical and sexual abuse. Often, such people are seen as coming from broken homes where domestic violence, alcoholism and drug abuse is the norm of the day. They are – quite often – found to be people of the lower social and economic strata of society – where poverty, unemployment, hunger, and an all-pervading sense of misery are a daily occurrence.

The occurrence of crime has become rampant in our daily lives – it does not exclude wealthy people, of supposedly good societal standing because such persons commit hateful crimes too – random acts of extreme violence; to relive and give vent to their darkest, most evil and forbidden fantasies and sometimes just to experience the “high” and the extreme thrill of committing a brutal murder and getting away with the contemptible act scot-free – just to name a few reasons. I mention these points only to make clear why we seem to be surrounded by Evil, in each walk of life. Crime is omnipresent – it literally seems to spring out spontaneously from the woodwork, like hordes of destructive white ants.

Whatever the reason for a criminal act, there is absolutely NO excuse or justification for it. A crime will always be labelled as a crime – there are no mitigating factors that can diminish the reprehensible nature of these cowardly acts.

We are not God – we are not responsible for the miraculous creation of Life itself and for the existence of living beings and living things. In this context, what gives anyone the right to take another person’s life? Who are we to decide who shall live and who shall die? Who are we to decide how a person will die? Who are we to judge anyone for their rights and their wrongs? Are we perfect individuals ourselves? Of course not! Everyone knows that. Yet some people are arrogant and presumptuous enough to imagine that this decision lies in their hands – just because they possibly possess power, wealth, and authority from being influential people themselves, or through knowing people “in high places.” It is for the judges and juries and the courts of law to make these life and death decisions based on the evidence and facts, and more importantly such decisions are in the hands of God and Karma.

There is so much undue exposure to crime nowadays via newspapers, television, social media, books of fiction and non-fiction, etc. that instead of curbing such despicable acts, they are, in fact, giving people new ideas on how to commit crimes and on how to be sure not to get caught for it. People know all about forensics nowadays – starting from fingerprinting to DNA samples – this has made criminals so shrewd and cunning that less than 3% of all crimes committed in the world – must be getting solved by the police – in my estimation.

A few of the worst criminals that immediately spring to my mind are Jack the Ripper, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, The Green River Killer, The Zodiac Killer, The Boston Strangler, The Unabomber – just to name a few of the most notorious ones. These people were so infamous and the crimes that they committed were so numerous and loathsome that these crime stories have literally became sensationalist. What is the world coming to? Why would anyone want to sensationalize heinous, brutal, and violent crimes? Unfortunately, that’s human nature. The more perverse the crimes are, the more these stories of violence whet our appetites for more.

It has rightly been stated that the unceremonious way in which a corpse is disposed, reveals the true nature of the criminal.

The following fact remains forever true – while it might be very commendable and highly optimistic to talk about rehabilitating such individuals, the fact remains that truly evil people are the best actors on Earth. Sociopaths and psychopaths can outwardly put on a highly credible pretense, for years together, especially when incarcerated in maximum security prisons – trying to portray to society their “good behaviour,” but inwardly, they are seething with hatred, rage, bitterness, and vengeance and spend their time, in prison, plotting the perfect revenge. When such criminals are released back into society, their crimes will be a thousand times more heinous and despicable. There is no end to the intense darkness of evil that inhabits the innermost recesses of the human mind of some people. Even when imprisoned, such rapists, murderers, arsonists, etc., find ways to spread the word of Satan outside the prison walls. Bribery and corruption have been known to work wonders. I personally call such people “the whisperers of Satan” and I do not think I am wrong in thinking so.

Some people are evil for the sake of wickedness itself – they enjoy spreading disharmony, misery, pain and suffering wherever they go. Even serving a life sentence in prison- without any possibility of parole – is too good for such people. Nothing but the death penalty works for such criminals. When we are dealing with extreme evil, it is only this extreme form of punishment that will help. It is for the Criminal Justice System to take up this matter very seriously and on a priority basis, if we are to see any improvement – at all – in our circumstances. It has been rightly stated in the Hindu scriptures, that this contemporary period of chaos is the ‘Kalyuga” – a Return to the Dark Ages.

Now, let’s talk of the “Ripple Effect.” In the literal sense, I want you to imagine throwing a stone into a pond. When the stone splashes into the water, ripples move outwards, from the center, in many concentric circles, as tiny waves or as gentle movements on the surface of the water.

In the context of crime and criminal behaviour, when criminals commit crimes, they do not think how their behaviour affects all the people concerned. It is not only the victim who has to suffer; it is also the victim’s family members, friends, colleagues, close acquaintances, neighbours and even strangers who get affected adversely.  The amount of pain, misery suffering, anger, anguish, and grief that befalls the surrounding people is unimaginable. People cannot grieve in peace for the loss of their loved ones because they have no sense of closure – they need to understand why, when and how certain events occurred in the way they did. At most times, they never find out.

This is what I call “The Ripple Effect.” In this sense, the crime is not only against the victim – it is against humanity, in general, and is against so many other people who form the concerned parties. Even strangers get affected adversely by such catastrophic events – the undue violence of the crime preys on the minds of people and forms traumatic memories, that will most probably be never forgotten. Some strangers might empathize with the concerned parties – however, everyone concerned is forced to relive the horror of the crime – again, again, again, and yet again. This includes the police force, the forensic teams, the medical examiners, the volunteer people that form search parties, the press and media, the legal teams, the judge, the jury, the prison personnel. The list just goes on and on – when will it ever end – if at all?

Just ripples, ripples, more ripples and still more ripples. No peace of mind. Not even the most seasoned and experienced police officers, investigators, detectives, etc. can ever get “habituated” to seeing the lurid details of a violent and senseless death. It haunts their minds, preys upon their psyche, and that’s how so many of them take to alcohol and drugs to drown out the awful memories. The latter starts a string of other serious problems – alcohol and drug addiction, bar-room brawls, senseless beatings of innocent bystanders, domestic violence, wife-beating, etc. All the pent-up emotions need to go somewhere, don’t they? It’s what I call the Ripple Effect. It never ends – it just keeps moving outwards, in concentric circles, affecting so many people needlessly. What a waste of time and energy – to say the least!

What is worse is that society itself shuns and “side-lines” the family members involved in such a crime. It could be either the family members of the victim, or the family of the perpetrator. Society will start judging them based on their own standards – they will say, for example, the woman deserved to be raped because she was of loose morals and lured the man with her scantily clad attire. What utter nonsense this is! Or they might say that the family failed in the upbringing of the perpetrator of the crime – didn’t they check him/her? What were they doing all the while? The fact remains that we do not know what the family did – or did not – do. In any case, it is not our place to decide or to judge.

Society even goes, so far, as to avoid all contact with the children of the perpetrator of the crime – as if they have had some part to play in the whole charade of the abominable crime itself. Isn’t this a case of adding insult upon injury? Isn’t it adding salt to open, painful wounds? This act of marginalizing and shunning the family members who are victims of the crime – by society – is a form of crime and sin, in  itself! When will we ever realize it? When will we stop doing it? When – if at all???

God and Mother Nature are slowly destroying the world – believe it or not. God is doing what humanity has been cowardly enough to do, till date. Those who live by the sword – literally and figuratively – shall die by the sword. It’s as simple as that.

For all intents and purposes, there is no Heaven and there is no Hell. We ourselves make our own Heaven, and our own Hell, on this Earth itself. Our own conscious and unconscious choices and decisions cause this to happen. Don’t you agree?

The world will never become a better place to live in, unless each one of us decides to make a conscious choice to become better people ourselves. Am I right or not? You decide.
