In Just 3 Minutes You’ll See The Horrors Of British Colonial Rule Across The World

Updated on 16 March, 2017 at 12:19 pm By

When Shashi Tharoor asked Britain to apologize and pay reparations to India for almost 200 years of colonial rule, he was applauded by everyone back home.

His reasoning was that Britain has done untold damage to India’s economy and cultural heritage besides, of course, the horrendous atrocities committed by the Raj on the people.

Recently Tharoor also pointed out that Britain does not teach its children the colonial past at the peak of which the Union Jack fluttered over around 25 per cent of the world’s land area.



“Why don’t you teach colonial history in schools? Children doing A-levels in history don’t know a single line of colonial history. There is a historical amnesia about what the empire entailed.”

That’s a very strong point because Britain’s colonial past is full of horror stories, and they are not just from India. For instance, Britain did nothing for the Irish during the Great Famine of 1845 to 1852 during which a million people died.

 

Cartoons such as this mocked the Irish depicting them as monkeys who deserve getting kicked in the arse.

A very brief history of that past has been presented here in this video:
