    He hired French mercenary Bob Denard to overthrow his predecessor Said Mohamed Jaffar.

    He outlawed certain aspects of Comorian culture, including some funerary customs, veil-wearing for women ,and the ‘Anda’, the expensive ‘grand marriage’.
    He discouraged history in the school curriculum.
    He said to his people, ‘I am your god and teacher. I am the divine way, the torch that lights the dark. There is no god but Ali Soilih.’
    He burnt French archives (1976).
    He created the Comorian version of Communist China’s Red Guards, known as the Moissy, a militia that terrorized villages and attacked elderly men.
    France severed all aid into the Comoros as a result of his Maoist policies, which caused the collapse of the Comorian economy as well.

    He quickly became downright unpopular among many Comorians, especially their traditional leaders.
    He wanted the Comoros to become a self-sufficient and modern country.
    He lowered the voting age to fourteen.
    The same mercenary who helped him become president overthrew him and brought former president Ahmed Abdallah back to power.
