Top 10 Most Hated Countries in the World

Love and hatred are among the strongest emotions that cannot be hidden away from those who are around us because if we do not express them through words, our facial expressions and attitudes will reveal and convey them. It is a beautiful thing to be loved by those whom you know and it is the worst thing on the Earth to feel that you are hated by people around you even those who talk to you, it is not easy at all. The same thing happens for countries as there are countries which are hated by many people around the world and the result is that people avoid visiting these countries, and may also avoid talking to their people, because they do not feel that they are comfortable while being in them. There are many factors that can cause hatred for any country but the two main things that are responsible for creating such a feeling are governments and people. You may find that both the government and the people of the country are responsible for making the country hated and you may also find that just one of them is responsible for this hatred and this is why we should not confuse governments and people with each other in order to be fair. To discover more about the hated countries and the reasons that increase hatred towards them, let’s take a quick look at the following top 10 most hated countries in the world.

10. Saudi Arabia


The country is highly dominated by religious laws “Islamic laws” and the punishments there such as stoning, lashing and amputation are thought to be savage and extremely severe. Women are not free in this country as they are obliged to completely cover themselves even their faces through wearing black clothes while being outside their homes and they are not allowed to go to any place alone as they have to take a male relative with them. All of these reasons are more than enough for making tourists avoid visiting this country thinking that it is boring, has complicated people and does not provide them with the needed freedom and comfort especially for women and this is why Saudi Arabia is not a famous tourist destination.

9. Turkey


Hatred towards Turkey has recently started to increase obviously especially at the present time and this is not caused by Turkish people who are known to be friendly, but it is caused by the Turkish government that does its best to look civilized and secular while in fact it supports terrorism such as what happens in Syria. Turkey is also hated because of the Armenian Genocide that is also referred to as the Armenian Holocaust because of its savagery. The massacre was carried out by the Ottoman authorities and it resulted in the death of 1.5 million people. Although the massacre is widely known, it is still denied by the Turkish government. What a savage government?

8. Iran


Persians are friendly, smart, nice and cool so the problem of hatred is more related to the government and what it does. It has militaristic ambitions not just in the surrounding region, but in the whole world. It supports terrorists in different countries around the world, violates human rights, threatens the world with its nuclear ambitions and is known for its antagonistic attitudes towards different countries in the world especially the most powerful ones.

7. India


Discrimination is the major problem in this country and the main reason behind the hatred towards it as the Indians believe in color, race and gender more than any other thing which discourages many foreign visitors from travelling to this country. The country is not completely safe as there are the rape cases with their increasing rate and this is also among the main reasons that make tourists especially women avoid visiting this country. You can add to that the unfriendly relations that the country has with the other neighboring countries.

6. United Kingdom

It is hated because of its terrible past. It is thought by many people around the world to be greedy as it ruled ¼ of the Earth and it was the first one in the world to bring the slavery system. It encouraged civil wars, oppressed and looted many countries, was responsible for the division and destruction of several countries in different continents around the world and is still involved in most of the major wars till now. It destroyed India and ruined its education system.

5. Russia 


Most of the countries that hate Russia are European countries and to be more precise the countries that were in the Soviet Union as Russia caused a lot of pain to these countries and destroyed their culture, intellects and religion. It killed millions of people, humiliated ethnic groups and still tries to create conflicts among different countries such as America and China to make use of these conflicts and weaken these countries. It has hidden agendas and ambitions to rule the world and it seeks for occupying different countries such as Ukraine and Georgia. Russians are also known for their addiction to alcohol.

4. North Korea

Those who live in the country suffer from restricted freedom as the internet access is even heavily censored, poor infrastructure and low standards of living for the sake of the nuclear weapons. It threatens the world with nuclear war, is known for its aggressive attitude towards the neighboring countries and is isolated from the rest of the world and its people thinking that they all are evil.

3. China 


China is ranked as the first country in the world in terms of having the highest execution rates. It is widely known for producing countless bad and fake products that cause different deadly diseases such as cancer. It invades different Asian countries to benefit from them and does not respect international laws even those that it signed. The rapid economic growth in China makes it capable of challenging the neighboring countries and the whole world including the most developed and powerful countries. It is ranked among the largest oil producing countries in the world; however, its production is not enough and it resorts to importing oil to meet its increasing needs that exceed its production and this makes it ranked as the largest oil importer in the world which increases the problem and makes it more dangerous for many powerful countries in the world.

2. Israel 


Its ongoing war against Palestine, arresting people, violating human rights and killing all the Palestinians without mercy or even differentiating between those guilty persons and other innocent people including women, the elderly, children and even babies who did not commit any crime except for coming to this miserable life are the main reasons behind the obvious and strong hatred towards Israel. Sometimes this hatred increases to take other serious forms such as boycotts and protests not just in the neighboring countries, but also in other countries around the world. Israelis are considered by many people to be the same like Nazis as they torture and kill many innocent people who did not do anything that may harm them.

1. United States

The United States is Israel’s strongest and most loyal ally in the whole world and this is one of the main reasons behind the hatred towards the United States by many people especially those who hate Israel for its antagonistic attitude towards all the Palestinians. There are also other factors that make people around the world hate this country such as destroying several countries and launching wars behind different pretexts that come at the end to be completely untrue like what happened in Iraq and what is going to happen in the future for different countries such as Syria.

  1. The UK didn’t start slavery, but it did take the lead in trying to end the practice for good. And to say that all of the UK’s history is terrible is completely ignorance and clearly biased. Many of the human rights, legal protections, technology, infrastructure, scientific discoveries, culture, etc. That people across the world now enjoy, is thanks to Britain.

    1. Jay dont bring your personal baseless recommendation to the table. You must obviously be a butthurt indian

  2. The uk isn’t a country, it’s a group of them. We didn’t just conquer countries, we helped with promoting the education of children. We were the cause of most counties urbanizing and becoming civilised. We were the first country to get rid of slavery and we didn’t even start it (America was the worst for it). We conquered 2/3 of the world. We are not involved in any wars now and we never promote them. If you are going to insult us, get your facts right.
