Nothing demonstrates more convincingly than the following two incidents from the history about the British atrocities and their hypocrisy
On 30th January 1972, twenty-six unarmed civil rights protesters or bystanders were shot by the soldiers of the 1st Battalion of the Parachute Regiment of the British Army, under Lt. Col. Derek Wilford, during a Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association march.
And long ago in Amritsar, on April 13, 1919, fifty British Indian Army soldiers, under the command of Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer, opened fire on an unarmed gathering of men, women and children. The firing lasted for ten to fifteen minutes, until ammunition was running short.
More than 1500 died in Amritsar on that day.
On June 16th, David Cameroon the PM of Britain apologized for the crime of “bloody Sunday”.
None remembers the greater crime of Jallianwala Bagh massacre, not even the government of India.
Only fools can say that this world is flat. It’s an uneven earth, dominated by uneven people. There is nothing more uneven than history.
