Unspoken Story of Indian Holocaust



While London has rushed to point the accusing finger at Serbs for the Srebrenica tragedy, the British have apparently forgotten their own shameful history of the genocide of the people of India, Rakesh Krishnan Simha told Sputnik.

While British policy makers are expressing their “righteous” anger over Russia’s decision to veto their resolution on the Srebrenica “genocide” of 1995 discussed by the UN Security Council earlier this month, London should obviously look in the mirror and recall its own colonial past, New Zealand-based journalist and foreign affairs analyst Rakesh Krishnan Simha told Sputnik.There is no need to delve deep into history, the analyst noted, referring to the infamous Bengal Famine of 1943-44 that can be classified as the greatest disaster in the subcontinent in the 20th century.

Citing Australian biochemist Dr. Gideon Polya, Simha underscored that the Bengal Famine was a “manmade holocaust” directly caused by UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s policies.

“Bengal had a bountiful harvest in 1942, but the British started diverting vast quantities of food grain from India to Britain, contributing to a massive food shortage in the areas comprising present-day West Bengal, Odisha, Bihar and Bangladesh,” the foreign affairs analyst narrated in his article “Remembering India’s Forgotten Holocaust” in 2014.

Just in a year, the manmade famine had claimed the lives of over 3 million Indians.

“Winston Churchill was just the last of the many murderous despots who presided over India’s fate during the over 200 years of British rule. He said, “I hate Indians. They are beastly people with a beastly religion”,” Simha told Sputnik.

Can We Classify the Bengal Famine as Genocide? 

Can we classify the Bengal Famine as genocide? Genocide is a systematic killing of a people in great numbers and Churchill intentionally, and with open malice towards Indians, diverted grain from India to Europe, the analyst pointed out. He added that even when desperate pleas came from the administration in Bengal, Churchill refused to dispatch emergency food supplies. The UK prime minister even went so far as to blame Indians for the famine, saying that they “breed like rabbits.”

“When the British representatives in India asked Churchill to stop diverting Indian food grains to Europe and to supply India with wheat from Australia, he replied: “If there is famine in India, then why is Gandhi still alive?”” the analyst remarked bitterly.

The Bengal Famine happened despite India being a food-surplus country with a bumper harvest that year, he stressed. And that had not been the first time when the British rulers facilitated food shortages in India.

Simha stressed that during over 200 years of British rule, India saw at least two dozen major famines, which collectively killed 60 million people. The journalist added that the figure is based on numbers collated by British officials and economists and in reality it is significantly higher.

The analyst pointed out that during the 1877 famine in India, the only acquire to get some food was to work in the British labor camps. Within those camps, starving Indians received only 16 ounces of rice per day — less than the Jewish inmates of Buchenwald, the Nazi concentration camp of the Second World War.One would say that India had faced famines even before the British colonial rule. However, “in the past 2000 years of Indian history, there were very few famine deaths because the Indian rulers ensured the well-being of the people through emergency food supplies and field kitchens,” the journalist underscored.

India’s Forgotten Holocaust 

The history of manmade famines in India under the British rule can be obviously compared to the Jewish Holocaust of the Second World War, according to Rakesh Krishnan Simha.

“Hitler’s hatred for Jews led to the Holocaust and Britain’s malice towards Indians caused the deaths of at least 60 million Indians, including three million people during the Bengal Famine. Proportionately, the Bengal Famine was a holocaust on a bigger scale than the Jewish Holocaust. It took Hitler 12 years to murder 6 million Jews, but the British starved at least 3 million Indians to death in a 15 month period from 1943 to 1944. Indian estimates put the toll at 7 million,” the journalist told Sputnik.

Simha pointed out that Hitler wanted to destroy the entire Jewish population of Europe because of race and religious reasons; furthermore, Hitler saw Jews as competitors in the German economy.

“Hitler also wanted to create Lebensraum in Europe for pure Germans. If you look at the history of English colonialism, they have created their own versions of Lebensraum in Canada, the US, Australia and New Zealand after the genocide of native populations,” the analyst underscored.

“They [the British] may have wanted to do the same in India. But the British couldn’t replicate armed genocide in India because Indians put up a ferocious counter attack and defeated the British in several wars. So the British may have decided to systematically eradicate Indians through famines. In fact, Churchill’s scorched earth policy was intended to enfeeble the Indian population so the Japanese-armed Indian National Army which was planning to liberate India from the east would not find able bodied men in Bengal,” he elaborated.

Why Does the Story of the Indian Genocide Remain Unspoken?

So, why does the story of the Indian genocide still remain unspoken? Why does the West that has recently rushed to blame Serbs for “genocide” of Bosnian Muslims remains suspiciously silent about its own hideous atrocities?

“First up, why would the US, UK, Spain or France admit at all to genocides they have committed? It is precisely because the scale of their own crimes is so staggering that they quickly latch on to other countries’ internal problems. For instance, after an alleged 100,000 East Timorese were killed by the Indonesians, the West suddenly adopted the role of savior, conscience keeper and protector. It then invaded East Timor and illegally made it an independent country. It did the same in Kosovo,” Rakesh Krishnan Simha elaborated.

“The UK and British immigrants in America wiped out Native Indians by the tens of millions. In Africa, the British massacred Kenyans,” he added.According to the journalist, considering the scale of the atrocities, the international community should conduct an official investigation into the Indian genocide.

“If the US Congress can condemn the Turkish genocide of Armenians a 100 years ago, then they can also censure Britain for even bigger holocausts in India. For this to happen, private Indian individuals must come forward to demand apology and reparations. There are a number of Indians who remember the holocaust and were affected by it,” the analyst pointed out.

And there is a precedent, he stressed: “Kenya has asked Britain for an apology, and the British have rendered one.”However, there are a number of obstacles in the way of restoring justice. First of all it is not in the British interests to recognize such a hideous crime. Furthermore, the Indian elite have already established close ties with the British nobilities. Many of them have their children studying in American and British colleges, or have business connections, or have family living in Britain, Simha noted. Maybe that is why most Indians have no memory of these holocausts because they are not taught in Indian schools, the foreign affairs analyst emphasized.

Congress’s Bloody History of Murdering Hindus



Youth Congress workers at Congress party office in Kannur in Kerala, slaughtered a calf in full public view. They not only killed the calf but cooked the beef and distributed it too, just to protest against the centre’s ban on cow slaughter. Is this incident shocking? No! From Jawahar Lal Nehru to Rahul Gandhi, Congress has always been led by anti-Hindu leaders.

Today leftist media mocks UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, every time he is seen serving cows but long before him Dr. Sarvsri Sampurnanand, Chief Minister of UP from 1954 to 1960 brought a law to ban cow slaughter in UP. The decision was against the wishes of the then Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru. In 1955, the UP Assembly enacted the UP Cow Slaughter Prohibition Act. Nehru described it as a ‘wrong step’. Nehru already had a spat with Dr Rajendra Prasad over the issue. Dr. Prasad wanted the Government to bring a Bill in Parliament for banning cow slaughter across the country. Nehru refused as in his view, the issue of cow slaughter was ‘unimportant and reactionary’. He threatened to quit as the Prime Minister if the bill banning cow slaughter was passed in the Parliament. Why did Nehru think that the ban on cow slaughter would be ‘reactionary’?  Who would have reacted? Was he scared of displeasing Muslims by banning cow slaughter?

Article 48 in the Constitution of India says-

The State shall …… take steps for preserving and improving the breed, and prohibiting the slaughter, of cows and calves and other milch and draught cattle.

In 1966, citing Article 48, Hindu organizations protested against cow slaughter. Prime Minister Indira Gandhi refused to accept the demand to ban cow slaughter. Agitated by the stand of the government, Hindu holy men and anti-slaughter Hindu devotees participated in a protest on 7th November 1966. According to Hindu Panchang, it was Gopashtmi that day.

All factions of Hinduism – Sanatani, Arya Samaji, Buddhist, Jain, Sikh, Nath, Nirankari and some Muslims too participated in the rally which started from Arya Samaj Mandir, Chandani Chowk. Most revered saints like Shankaracharyas of Jagannath Puri, Govardhan Math and Dwarka Jotishpeeth, the seven Peethadishes of Vallabh Sampradaya, Ramanuja Sampradaya, Ramananda Sampradaya, Mahant of Gorakhpeeth, Saints President and secretary of Arya Samaj and Granthis of various Sikh shrines led the protest. According to reports, 10 lakh people including 20 thousand women participated in that rally.

After reaching the Parliament, the Gau Raksha Samiti gave memorandum but the Government was not ready to hear anything for a ‘complete ban on cow slaughter’ in India. When the agitated crowd tried to enter Parliament House, Police lobbed tear gas and started firing ruthlessly and indiscriminately.

Eyewitness account of Acharya Sohanlal Ramrang, who participated in the rally –

The moment crowd became out of control, police started lobbing tear gas shells and ordered lathi charge. Soon police started an indiscriminate fire on the crowd. Bodies were falling in heaps. The road in front of the Parliament became red with the blood of the dead and injured. At least 5000 protesters died. To cover the tragedy, Government called trucks and crammed alive, injured and dead in the trucks. Even those alive succumbed under the weight of dead bodies. Till date, no one knows what happened to those taken away in trucks. Whether burnt or buried somewhere. Curfew was imposed and 50000 protesters, along with all the saints except the Shankracharya were put in Tihar jail. Karapatri Ji Maharaj started Satyagraha in Tihar jail. It was the largest killing of Hindus by Indira Gandhi in a single day.

In traditional Congress style, Indira Gandhi put the entire blame of the tragedy on the then Home Minister Gulzari Lal Nanda. Nanda promptly resigned, taking the responsibility of the incident. Today blame is put on the Prime Minister even if a horse is injured anywhere in the country. To protest against the brutal killing of the Hindus and the Hindu saints, many renowned saints started fast unto death. The new Home Minister Y B Chavan went to meet the fasting saints and gave assurance that the ‘Cow Protection Bill’ would be brought in the next session. The Indira Gandhi Government never kept its promise.

According to some sources, Karapatri Ji Maharaj cursed Indira for the brutal killing of the Hindus. No wonder, Indira Gandhi met a violent end and coincidently 31stOctober, 1984, the day she died, was Gopashtami.
