100 years later, India still awaits an apology from britain for the 3 million Indians who were murdered during the 1943 Bengal famine by Churchill Winston and his policies.
Mackenzie Dawson from the New York Post just put up a story celebrating Winston Churchill’s quotes and speeches and how it gave Britain hope during the dark days of WWII. Churchill’s speeches may have given Britain hope during the dark days of WWII, but was that who he really was and what version did India get?
Churchill Winston was the Mass Murderer who diverted the food supplies from Bengal to his British soldiers in WWII and countries such as Greece during World War 2, while the native state died from starvation due to the deadliest famine India has ever seen. He thus engineered the worst genocide in human history.
The Bengal famine of 1943 was the only one in modern Indian history not to occur as a result of serious drought. That’s why Mahatma Gandhi began his first all-India movement against British colonial rule.
Winston Churchill is known mostly for his lengthy political career, especially his wartime leadership as prime minister of Britain between 1940 and 1945. This meant he had full control of the war. “I’m strongly in favor of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes”, “If the famine is so bad, why is Gandhi still alive” – these are quotes from Winston Churchill.
Churchill, the Greatest Briton, Hated Gandhi, the Greatest Indian but because of imperial chauvinism, the dark side of his legacy still hidden. Churchill has as much blood on his hands as the worst genocidal dictators. While Britons praised him for saving them from Hitler, he was regarded as worse than Hitler by Indians and human rights activists who called out the controversy of his greatness.
Sadly, mainstream media like the New York Post and our education systems, especially those in British colonies still want us to forget this.
