Asians know his policies led to starvation of 3 million Indians
by S. Amjad Hussain
. . . Enough time has passed since his death in 1965 to reassess Mr. Churchill's legacy. For
the people of South Asia, he was not a hero. He was a racist who was responsible for the
death by starvation of 3 million Indians. His actions constituted a crime against
Those people died of a preventable famine in Bengal and other parts of India. Mr.
Churchill ordered vital food supplies and medical aid to be sent from India to already
well-supplied soldiers in Europe. The British also carried out a scorched-earth policy
along the India-Burma border in the hope that Japan would not invade India from Burma.
Some British administrators in India objected to the policies dictated by London. But
they were rebuffed. Mr. Churchill's response to the Bengal famine was: Famine or no
famine, "Indians will breed like rabbits".
When the British viceroy in India sent a telegram to Mr. Churchill detailing the
devastation and the number of people who had died of hunger, the prime minister asked:
"Then why hasn't Gandhi died yet?" . . .

[The worst massacre carried out by the British is not even acknowledged as such, but was
instead celebrated as an heroic epic with no less than eight Victoria Crosses being
awarded to the participants. This was the storming of the Sikander Bagh, a walled
garden, during the second relief of Lucknow. There were over 2,000 rebels in the
enclosure and they were attacked by troops from the 93rd Highlanders and the 4th Punjab
infantry. According to the future Field Marshall Lord Roberts . . .
"inch by inch they were forced back to the pavilion, and into the the space between it
and the north wall where they were all shot or bayoneted. There they lay in a heap as
high as my head, a heaving mass of dead and dying inextricably entangled."--John

[What about the Brits and their famines, which they were using as population control and
intimidation tactics in India! In Bengal at least 5 million died in 1943 alone, 5.5
million in 1876-78, 5 million in 1896-97, to name just a few terrorist acts committed by
the British Empire against a defenseless population forced to live under its horrid and
oppressive terrorist regime!--Andre Vltchek, "How the

Shashi Tharoor, author of Inglorious Empire: What the British did to India, demonstrates
how Britain economised its industrial revolution through plundering India, reducing the
country's share of the world economy from 23 percent to 4 percent.
British exploitations of India - like that of local produce, such as grain - led to
unprecedented poverty under the British Raj; both the Great Famine of 1876-1878 and the
Indian famine of 1899-1900 are thought to have killed up to 10 million people each.
