AK-47 Rifle Inventor Passes Away

Whether it is bank robberies, terrorist assaults or guerilla warfare, one thing they all have in common is the AK-47. Even the Jihadists of today use this weapon of choice in their sporadic outbursts of violence. The inventor of the Kalashnikov was a Russian man by the name of Mikhail Kalashnikov

He died in a hospital room in his home town of Izhevsk at 94 years of age. He had been having cardiac issues since the past month or so. While born in poor circumstances, Mikhail overcame adversity and became the poster boy for the only Russian export apart from Vodka. He achieved fame and fortune both at home and abroad for the weapon that really worked. 

The handy nature of the Kalashnikov was what made it the favorite tool of fiery revolutionaries and all sorts of criminals. It was used in legitimate wars too as a force for liberation. However, the fact that a lot of innocent men, women and children were killed in cold blood by this deadly weapon was something which irked Mikhail Kalashnikov for the rest of his life. 

The simple yet effective rifle was employed to put down riots. It was used in the Iran-Iraq War that went on and on. And even Osama bin Laden had it by his side during the interviews he relayed to the outside world from his den. The Vietnam War saw the full-scale use of this killing machine. Today there are over a hundred million AK-47s spread throughout the global village. And the original maker of these death-dealing pieces of equipment is no more with us. 

Though he received Russia’s highest honor for his invention, it was a source of constant irritation when interviewers asked him personal questions regarding his gore gadget. In his last words he spoke of how he originally meant to make the AK-47 in order to defend his homeland. The fact that it ended up in the wrong hands was due to the actions of unscrupulous politicians.
