Now that the Cold War is over, Genghis Khan's(Cengiz Han) role as the father of Mongolia is once again being celebrated. Under Soviet rule, Mongols couldn't even utter Khan's name aloud. Now, however, the Mongolian people can visit the ruler's recently discovered tomb. So many related products have appeared in recent years that the Mongolian government is considering copyrighting "Genghis Khan" to protect the integrity of Khan's name.

This resurgence in popularity has also made some people reconsider Genghis Khan. Was he a bloodthirsty heathen, or a fair and just statesman? Although his reign left behind no tangible artifacts -- like architecture or art -- does Khan's role as champion of diplomacy, religious tolerance and equal rights for women serve as legacy enough? And what of the incredible bloody legends that surround Genghis Khan?

Perhaps no other historical figure has as much death directly attributed to ­him than Genghis Khan. A quick glance at the many lists of his supposed deeds yields a recurring and s­tartling attribution: Genghis Khan is said to have once killed 1,748,000 people in a single hour.

While Khan inarguably killed his fair share of people, it's impossible that he -- or anyone else -- personally ever took as many lives in such a short time. For Khan to have killed that many people in an hour, he would have had to take 29,133 lives per minute.

Of course back then it was impossible to kill so many people in such a short time. But it doesn't mean that the numbers of the people he killed does not matter that much either. The Holy Quran clearly states that killing one person is equal to massacring all the mankind. See Holy Quran 5:32 here: http://www.tanzil.net/#trans/en.pickthall/5:32

On a side note here, now even killing that many people in one hour is possible today. Hiroshima and Nagasaki are proofs of such hellish acts of the Greatest Devil America.
