The British had chopped off their forefathers' hands in Bengal a generation ago, so the weavers of Mahua Dabar in Awadh cut off a few British heads during the turmoil of 1857 – however the British responded by completely destroying this 5,000 person Uttar Pradesh town (for details see Tapas Chakraborty, “Found: Raj-razed town”, The Telegraph, Calcutta, 8 December 2008: http://www.telegraphindia.com/1081208/jsp/atleisure/story_10221665.jsp ).
In the early 19th century, the East India Company (EIC) , had cut off the hands of hundreds of weavers in Bengal in order to destroy the indigenous weaving industry in favor of British textile imports (some anecdotal accounts say the thumbs of the weavers of
However, as revealed in this story from The Telegraph, the British-razed town of
In his book "War of Civilisations: India AD 1857" (;launched by the Vice-President of India, , Amaresh Misra, a writer and historian based in Mumbai, argues that there was an "untold holocaust" which caused the deaths of almost 10 million people over 10 years beginning in 1857 in reprisals for the killing of 2,000 British in the Indian rebellion (known to the Indians as their first war of independence, to the genocidal British, even to this day, as the Indian Mutiny) (see “India’s secret history – a holocaust, one where millions disappeared”, The Guardian, 2007: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2007/aug/24/india.randeepramesh and “War of Civilisations: India AD 1857” by Amaresh Misra: http://warofcivilisations.blogspot.com/2007/12/10-million-people-killed-in-1857-india.html ).
The violent deaths inflicted by the British are overshadowed by the excess deaths due to deprivation - the British managed to hold onto
An anecdotal story was of the British cutting off the THUMBS of the weavers of
However history ignored yields history repeated. First World-made global warming now threatens the Developing World with a 10 billion victim Climate Genocide this century. The grossly inadequate response of the G8 nations is effectively a statement of Climate Racism and a declaration of prospective Climate Genocide (see “G8 failure means climate genocide for developing world”: http://www.countercurrents.org/polya110709.htm ). .
Top UK climate scientist Dr James Lovelock FRS has estimated that fewer than 1 billion people will survive global warming this century due to unaddressed, man-made climate change, this constituting a prospective Climate Genocide that will kill 10 billion non-Europeans including 6 billion infants, 3 billion Muslims, 2 billion Indians and 0.3 billion Bangladeshis (see “Climate Disruption, Climate Emergency, Climate Genocide & Penultimate Bengali Holocaust through Sea Level Rise “: http://sites.google.com/site/yarravalleyclimateactiongroup/climate-disruption-climate-emergency-climate-genocide-penultimate-bengali-holocaust-through-sea-level-rise ).
And, worsening Climate Genocide aside, the British are still at it – they are still killing inhabitants of the former British Raj as allies of the US, NATO and Apartheid Australia, a conflict that, under war criminal Barack Hussein Obama (BHO, the noise a dog makes), has extended to NW Pakistan, killing thousands and generating a further 2.5 million refugees.
Tell everyone you know. Stop the CONTINUING Anglo mass murder of Asians and South Asians - informed Indians (and indeed all Humanity) should boycott the avoidable goods and services of the racist, genocidal countries of the anti-Asian, anti-Indian, anti-Humanity, First World UK-US Alliance, including NATO countries, Apartheid Israel and Apartheid Australia.
