Wiston Churchill's abusive quotes on India, Gandhiji and others!!

 Winston Churchill, A contrarian world - Blogger
 Winston Churchill, a conservative British politician  who was twice the PM of Britain - 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955, was a well-known India baiter, a racist and a staunch believer in Britishness and English supremacy. Being a bad mouth with a vile tongue, his  remarks on Gandhi, India and others are sharp and much worse than poison darts dipped in poison made from secretions from South American Poison frogs. They are quite insulting, intimidating and  overstep on human decency. Such insinuating remarks are not worthy of a seasoned, mature European politician. The British media and the British  elite there created a myth that Churchill saved the world from the Nazi devils; it is absolutely not true. Thanks to the Americans and Russians, but for them,  Winston would have found himself turning around and moaning in an English church's grave yard long long ago during the war. Winston's remarks are quite shameful and unashamedly he cast a blot on the goodness of the British society.  A few of his abusive and abrasive remarks are as follows:

On Gandhiji:
A book on Gandhi & Churchill by ArthurHerman
 ... After the success of salt Satyagraha the then Viceroy Lord Irwin wanted to open a dialogue with Gandhiji. Churchill bitterly opposed it.  He was  "against this surrender to Gandhi. I am against these conversations and agreements between Lord Irwin and Mr. Gandhi. Gandhi stands for the expulsion of Britain from India. Gandhi stands for the permanent exclusion of British trade from India. Gandhi stands for the substitution of Brahmin domination for British rule in India. You will never be able to come to terms with Gandhi".

To Churchill British rule must firmly rest on  assertion and the show of strong authority and must  avoid  conciliatory attitude for it exposes a large surface of weakness of the British. 

... Speaking at the Constitutional Club on March 26, 1931, Churchill observed that "Gandhi, with deep knowledge of the Indian peoples, by the dress he wore — or did not wear, by the way in which his food was brought to him at the Viceregal Palace, deliberately insulted, in a manner which he knew everyone in India would appreciate, the majesty of the King's representative. These are not trifles in the East. Thereby our power to maintain peace and order among the immense masses of India has been sensibly impaired."


... In 1943 When Gandhi was on fast unto death, Churchill hoped that he would starve to death.  When in 1944 Gandhiji wrote to the Viceroy of India about  possible British withdrawal, Churchill thought "the Viceroy had no business to correspond with a traitor who ought to be put back in prison".

 ... Sir Winston Churchill,  purportedly one of the great heroes of world war II, while addressing the Council of the West Essex Unionists on February 23, 1931, made carping remarks which he and most likely  much of his audience would have felt. He said (February 17, 1931):
''... it was alarming to see Mr. Gandhi, a seditious Middle Temple lawyer, now posing as a fakir of a type well-known in the East, striding half-naked up the steps of the Viceregal Palace, while he is still organizing and conducting a defiant campaign of civil disobedience, to parley on equal terms with the representative of the King-Emperor." 


... During the Bengal famine of 1943 Churchill, then the Prime Minister of Great Britain,  responded to urgent requests to divert food supplies to India with a telegram asking, if food was
so  scarce,  "why Gandhi hadn't died yet".

... Instead of being sympathetic, Winston Churchill, ignoring his colleagues' advice to save the dying Indians on time he wantonly diverted the grain-lade ship at Calcutta harbor to Europe to improve the buffer stock for emergency in case of war. When honest British officials pointed out his mistake he irrationally remarked that it was their own fault for "breeding like rabbits". At other times, when emaciated Bengalies were dying in large numbers almost daily  he said the plague was "merrily" culling the population. He did this intentionally  with glee and all while cheering. He did not want to contain the  famine that claimed 3 million lives in Bangladesh

... Many of his colleagues thought Churchill was driven by a deep loathing of democracy for anyone other than the British  supposedly belonging to a superior race. He had this kind of disgusting  attitude toward India. When Mahatma Gandhi launched his campaign of peaceful resistance, Churchill raged that he "ought to be lain bound hand and foot at the gates of Delhi, and then trampled on by an enormous elephant with the new Viceroy seated on its back."

On India:

..."I hate Indians," he told the Secretary of State for India, Leopold Amery. "They are a beastly people with a beastly religion." The famine was their own fault, he declared at a war-cabinet meeting, for "breeding like rabbits."

On Indian Politicians:

On Kurds and Afghan tribes:
... Advocated  the use of poison gas against Kurds and Afghans in 191 because, Churchill had no guts to fight against the tribes in that terrain. .

 On Palestinians:
 ... Right from the head to the callus in his feet, he hated the Iranians, Palestinians and the Arabs.

 “This is the man the British want us to hail as an apostle of freedom and democracy, when he has as much blood on his hands as some of the worst genocidal dictators of the 20th century,”  Sashi Tharoor, Congress MP

Surely Churchill's dislike of Indian people, especially leaders like Gandhiji shows him in bad light.  A.A. Gill, a well-known writer  nominated Churchill as his "worst Briton" in an article published in the New Statesman in December 2002. In 1940 , giving appealing war speeches  he rallied a nation on the brink of defeat. Likewise he was equally  responsible for the Dardanelles campaign (in March 1915, during World War I (1914-18), British and French forces launched an ill-fated naval attack on Turkish  forces), the greatest disaster of the first World War. Churchill had long been a proponent of an aggressive naval assault against Turkey at the Dardanelles. Despite is fallacies and frailty Today he is remembered as the  greatest ever Prime Minister,  who saved Britain from impending disaster
