It all starts with the British East India Company in 1757. After the Mughal dynasty started collapsing 50 years earlier, this company saw an opportunity to take over a huge country -- and they did so, for 100 years, until the Sepoy (Indian soldiers) started rebelling against them. Then, in came the British government, in 1857, and made India officially a British colony.The government the British had in place and left behind was, and is, highly efficient, but the British ruined India’s soil and there was massive deforestation, which led to many famines, and it was only after the British left India altogether that India’s population became more educated and literate. Dr. Lalvani is one of the few who believe that imperialism was beneficial,
For many years India struggled greatly for their independence. The three major events in the Indian fight against British rule were: the Golden Temple Massacre, the Salt March, and the homespun movement. During the Temple Massacre British and Gurkha troops killed at least 379 unarmed Indians meeting at the Jallianwala Bagh, to discuss nonviolent resistance and protest. However, the British had passed a law that said they were forbidden from encouraging and having meetings about nonviolent protests. The Salt March, which took place in India, was an act of civil disobedience.
After generations of a disorganized and ununified city-state collection that was at the time today’s Myanmar, British imperialism did not stop at the Eastern borders of British India. The British exploited the political instability and ethnic diversity of Burma to colonize it over the 62 year period of the three Anglo-Burmese wars. Up until 1937, Burma was a direct extremity of India, and only became its own crown colony in that year. As if to continue its history of invasion and occupation, the Japanese, with assistance from the Burma Independence Army (later to become the Anti-Fascist People's Freedom League ), occupied Burma in 1942. However Japanese seizure of Burma was only a brief stint due to the fact that after merely three years,
Isolated incidents of violence broke out around the country, but the British acted quickly, arrested thousands of people, and kept them in jail. Apart from filling up jails with rebellious leaders, the British also went ahead and abolished civil rights, freedom of speech and freedom of
Knives and other cutting instruments are dangerous too. Knives and other cutting instruments were used to kill 280 people in California, 175 people in Texas, and 130 people in New York (FBI: UCR, 2016). So, should we also ban knives? Getting rid of guns will not get rid of Crime. So, if we did away with all guns and knives there should be no Murder in the United States.
Myanmar is a country with a degree of ethnic diversity high as many as 135 ethnic inhabit this region. However, Rohingya ethnic Bengalis are not recognized by the military government as a citizen so they often experience discrimination. Military junta Policy that being repressive and anarchists against Rohingya began to look as real since Naga Min operation in 1978.

This didn’t matter to Andrew Jackson. Though the natives were peaceful people, he still killed off a large portion of their population, as well as entire tribes. Also, an even bigger portion of their population were forced to leave, some leaving behind their family. Andrew Jackson 's need for power turned him into a savage who doesn’t care about the well-being of those he comes
It's understandable to see journalists vent out. It's their community that has been hurt. But for you and me, I think neither Charlie Hebdo matters, nor the 139 children. Just to be sure, there are 2000 people, mostly children and women, dead in Nigeria at the hands of Boko Haram. And there are many dying in Syria, Sudan, Congo daily, without a cry being raised for them.
They were detained, tortured, humiliated, interrogated, and executed. Also, churches and temples were burned and destroyed while the Christians, Buddhists, and Muslims were targeted. Religion was banned all throughout Cambodia. People were even shot for doing things that were out of the ordinary, such as, speaking a different language, wearing glasses, laughing or crying. The people in the camps were separated even farther based on how much they were trusted by Pol Pot.
The reason for this geographical split is imperialism. Europeans were able to move to colonies under European rule in temperate regions or American (32 million Europeans came to the U.S.). However, indentured laborers were specifically funnelled into plantations and mines to fuel resource exploitation and labor. 2.5 million people from India, Japan, Africa, and China were offered free passage, shetler, food, and minimal pay to work from 5 to 7 years in plantations or mines in Africa, the Carribeans, or the Americas. Thus, these migratory patterns were profoundly shaped by
