There are 2 ways to dissect Siad Barre's 21-year rule:

1969-78 = He was good for the most part, a strongman who propelled Somalia forward, policies like "Bar ama Baro" increased literacy in Somalia greatly, Somali script was created, strengthing the military, these policies were mostly introduced in his early years.

1979-91 = This is where he falls short, increased corruption and nepotism, and systematic oppression, his atrocities committed against Isaaq and Hawiye, and other Darood clans is what lead to rebel groups forming and splitting the country.

I won't even criticize his killings of the Wadaads in 1975, because he only did it when they (Sheikhs) opposed the state-driven advancement of women’s rights in the 1975 Family Law, which allowed women and men to inherit wealth equally following the death of a family member; restricted polygamy; and gave women the right to seek a divorce from their husbands.

His destroying of democracy in Somalia is also a damning thing, he should have just tried to run fairly, he would have probably have won anyway.
But women's inheritance being equal is un-Islamic and murdering scholars for that is uncalled for and just unhinged.

The family law is apart of the Quran, the inheritance law written in Surah Nisa and which has been practiced by Somalis for centuries. The Sheikhs opposed him changing the Quranic laws so he killed them. Exodus, I’m guessing you’re one of those Liberal Muslims.
You misunderstand, I'm not saying he was right or wrong for doing it, but that I can understand why he did it.

And no I'm not a "Liberal Muslim"

Nuh we done that part even @Ibn Yacqub agreed with me on them being wrong not forming gov't. But you said maybe it was distrust to which I told you they where on the same side so there was no distrust to which you returned to Siad Barre killings, it is a vicious cycle bro. Just admit they made a mistake by not forming gov't. I already said Siad Barre was wrong for his actions to kill people so stop going back to that again and again
I'm nkt saying both of them aren't guilty at all. I despise all the peo0le who caused Somalia's downfall but I won't be able to stop mentioning Siyad barre because:
1. THIS IS A THREAD ABOUT HIM.
2. Everything wrong with Somalia could be traced back to him.

Actions speak louder than words.
He didn't try to change the Quran he wanted to implement a new law of inheritance so he killed all those who opposed him whether they were culimo or not. Siad Barre wanted to separate religion and the state, he wanted a secular gov't so he did all he could to achieve it. Am not seeing others saying Bin Salman is gaal because of secularizing Saudi or Bin Zayed or even Ataturk , his deen and his gov't were different thing
I'm nkt saying both of them aren't guilty at all.
Am glad we could come to an agreement

Changing the law of Allah makes you a murtad.
