Recently, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle encouraged Britain to acknowledge the past of the Commonwealth and urged to right the wrongs of colonialism.
They were speaking against racial injustice and said that accepting the past would be uncomfortable but it needs to be done.
India too was one of the Asian countries colonised by the British. So, someone on Twitter said that if not for colonisation, Indian wouldn't have been a country it is today.
Shut up. Without colonialism, India would not be a country. It would be 357 warring tribes that don't speak the same language. History is not an occasion for spoiled fops like yourselves to virtue signal. https://t.co/GTiCu0oIZT— David Horowitz (@horowitz39) July 6, 2020
Okay, so this tweet didn't go down well with Indians and they lashed out on the Twitter user for promoting racism and colonialism.
Indians even asked him to learn History, where India was a full-fledged civilisation long before Britain even existed.
Well when the so called Europeans were busy Barbarians, India had a millienia old civilization. Those languages that you mention are still spoken widely and India ie. Bharat has been a continuing civilization for millenias— yaji (@msyaji) July 7, 2020
Without India, the Brits could not get the borrowed glow to call itself "super"power; all faded right after '47 and continuing downhill. Get real education, not the colonial dribble.— DP (@dp8084) July 7, 2020
Bharatha varshe bharatha kandhe... We existed as a civilization even before Europe existed.. Our gods walked on this land. Our gurus established mutts throughout the country. Kashmir to Kanyakumari, we are called Bharathavasi's— bharath (@bhakum) July 7, 2020

Racism, and more racism in this tweet. It’s essentially—“We starved you, oppressed you, partitioned you, and left with a 7 figure death toll in our immediate wake. Be grateful.”— Audrey Truschke (@AudreyTruschke) July 7, 2020
This isn’t how historians talk, but it is how entitled racist men talk. https://t.co/fQmxvYpvPw
If a so called region of "357 warring tribes" can enable barbarians from a sorry island to plunder 144 trillion then you need to seriously rethink your definition of a civilisation. https://t.co/CW4UomROfi— Souvik Roy Moulick (@sroymoulick) July 8, 2020
Sorry Mr Horrorwitz ..India would have done just fine without the white man https://t.co/yoEmWTF7cX— Mandar Manmohan Sawant (@MandarSawant184) July 8, 2020
Thanks to colonialism we understood to get united and kick the fat Brit racist, oppressive colonial assholes, who were looting us, out of India. https://t.co/HJTgebmGQO— سننٹوٹو Sunandito (@Sunandito1974) July 8, 2020
These shits of colon-ization!🤦— Mr. X (@frnd899) July 8, 2020
Listen you jerk, colonization didn't gave India "a country", it divided the whole subcontinent into many! https://t.co/Ng1HSwGp9p
You need to study more history. Nation state is a post Napoleonic era concept. Italy, Germany etc weren’t nation states to begin with.— Manish Jaitly (@ManishJtly) July 8, 2020
BTW, Ireland is conceptually one nation, Britain has undone geography by protestantisation as well as conquest. https://t.co/aWFjAK1bWF
We are thankful that you came here with such nobel intention through "East India Company" for uniting us Indians... https://t.co/Dg54c4IFtI— Sumit Kashyap (@sumitkashyapjha) July 8, 2020
You shut up, without colonialism, England would mint be a country. British would be begging & fighting each other like tribes. Indian had worlds oldest civilizations, we had great ruling dynasties too. For u kind info we don’t speak same language throughout the country even now. https://t.co/Yfrzy7Sfe6— Chandrakanth GR (@Chandru111) July 7, 2020
