1 The British Empire’s long list of crimes against Bharat includes slavery, racism, religious intolerance, plunder, & more. But did you know that the British systematically forced 1000s of Indian women to become sex slaves under the guise of “prostitution” for their soldiers?

1632218560379.png


2 In 1898, Elizabeth W. Andrew & Katharine C. Bushnell wrote “The Queen's Daughters in India”, revealing unforgettable details about how the British devised a system of prostitution & official brothels to use Indian women as sex slaves for soldiers of the British Military.

1632218586571.png


3 When the British first took control of Bharat, they built “Cantonments”, as separate mini towns for the residences of British soldiers & officers. Cantonments were not governed by the civil laws of India, but separate British laws allowing them to abuse the rights of Indians.

1632218613292.png


4 Over 100 cantonments were established to “protect” soldiers from rebellion & provide for their needs. The Cantonment Acts of 1864 regulated & structured prostitution in them. Official brothels called "Chaklas" were created for "poor women to gain economic independence."

1632218636763.png


5 Horrifyingly, an entire regiment of 1000 soldiers was serviced by just 12-15 Indian women. The British justified prostitution as safeguards against the “perversion” of homosexuality. The real reason was to reinforce racial dominance through sexual control of Indian women.

1632218659189.png


1632218669601.png


6 Over 30% of sick British soldiers had STDs due to their promiscuity. In contrast, Indian soldiers had very low infection rates. The British medical journal, Lancet tried to dismiss this discrepancy by claiming that Indians were immune from childhood due to hereditary syphilis!

1632218691935.png


7 British medical officers blamed “a warm climate & a country of lax native morals” for tempting soldiers. They justified their promiscuity & reinforced racial superiority, by asserting that tropical diseases were “more virulent” than European & that Indians had lower morals.

1632218712450.png


8 In 1864, “The Contagious Diseases Acts” mandated testing of any Indian woman suspected of STDs at “Lock Hospitals”. They were forced to go for weekly medical exams to check for STDs, so that soldiers could continue using "prostitutes" without risk of infection.

1632218730559.png


9 The compulsory examination was like a surgical rape. Any infected woman was confined & forcibly treated with medicines containing arsenic until symptoms subsided to resume providing sex again. Unlucky ones with advanced disease were thrown out on the streets to suffer & die.

10 But British soldiers were not subject to any such exams for signs of STDs. The excuse was that soldiers would feel “brutalized & violated” by such exams. Yet it was fine for them to brutalize, violate & infect helpless Indian victims forced into the Chakla brothels.

1632218820972.png


11 The women in Chaklas had no other choice as they were very poor. Their “fees” was fixed by the British military. It was so low, that the British enlisted new recruits by advertising how sex in India was almost free & assurances that sexual diseases were fully treated

1632218843979.png


12 When the soldiers travelled to camp for military activities, tents were set up for the women at the back part of the encampment. As the soldiers marched, the women were carried like cattle in guarded carts or trains to the destination of the regiment.

1632218863165.png


13 Many girls were tortured, abused & savaged by the soldiers. They were beaten, cut, forced into unnatural acts, and even burnt or strangled by drunk soldiers. Such violent crimes were hidden from the outside world as Indian women had practically no rights.

1632218884028.png


1632218892908.png


14 On June 17, 1886, a military order, known as the “Infamous Circular Memorandum,” was sent out to all Cantonments of India by General Chapman, in the name of the Commander-in-Chief, Lord Roberts. Its contents were shocking.

1632218923586.png


15 The order specified an urgent need to find methods to acquire many more attractive & younger Indian women as soldiers’ demands for “prostitutes” were very high & Indian women were not willing to be prostitutes. The British soldiers were desperate for fresh flesh.

1632218951019.png


16 But the British didn’t just want indian sex slaves, they wanted them as attractive & young as possible, since younger women had a lower chance of being infected with STDs. It was a clinical selection of sexual prey to minimize disease & maximize pleasure for soldiers.

1632218978246.png


17 Many strategies were devised to trap innocent Indian women. Policemen would observe girls & if they talked to any men, they were accused of being prostitutes. They would then be captured, taken to the Cantonment & forced to register as Chakla prostitutes.

1632218997620.png


18 British officers sent out Indian Sepoys to forcibly capture at least 12-15 of the best looking girls as young as 14 from every village. Once the Colonel approved them, they were forced into service & old “prostitutes” with sexual diseases were thrown out.

19 The British justified this disgusting practice with the blatant lie that Hindu women in the Chakla system belonged to a “prostitute” class or caste. But prostitutes were never treated as outcastes by Hindus Such a caste never existed & was created to malign Hindu society.

1632219066571.png


20 Shockingly, many Anglo Indian kids born of these encounters were especially victimized. Many were raised till teenager-hood & used as fresh slaves, because of their European features. It was the British who created their own sub class of mixed blood progeny as prostitutes.

1632219114828.png



21 Imagine such a cruel system which continuously preyed upon fresh, young & beautiful sex slaves & mercilessly culled those with STDs to protect the soldiers who molested & infected them in the 1st place. This was how British Christian colonizers “civilized” heathen Hindoos.

1632219138995.png




22. In 1886, the Acts were finally repealed due to increasing awareness & protests by feminists led by Josephine Butler. But it was only after WW1 & the abolitionist movements had weakened imperial power that prostitution was abolished by the British in the 1930s

1632219189427.png


23 History books often gloss over this horrific fact that the British brutalized & violated thousands of Bharatiya women to satisfy their insatiable lust. How ironic when these same British claim to have saved Hindu women from the falsified myths of Sati & Child marriage!

24 These heart rending facts show us how the racist British Empire institutionalized sexual slavery of Indian women. Forgetting such heinous crimes would be a grave injustice to the souls of those innumerable Bharatiya women who suffered indescribable humiliation & torment.

You know what's another question to ask, how would India be had the British not conquered it? I found this interesting article worth reading...

If The British Had Never Ruled Our Country, This Would Be India Today
1. A fragmented nation

2. Decline of the Mughal Empire
3. Presence of other European powers
4. Consolidation of British power elsewhere

Nope, this was the map before british intervention began. mughal empire had already declined.
without british intervention, rest of the remaining white areas would have been taken care of.

I did not make that map. It came with the article I cited. And I think there was a disclaimer there that that map may not be historically accurate.

Regardless, the valid point is, even the Maratha, could it have remained intact for so long given the volatility of the allegiances of the factions or states it cover? And could Maratha or any union of Indian Kindoms have resisted the onslaught of European colonialism in the 18th-19th century?

Of course, as I cautioned in my opening line, we are in purely academic duscussion of how would India have turned out had the British not colonized it?

Why do you even insert yourself in every other thread and immediately start with fallacy flinging?

1) Marathas had finished the mooghals long before the britfags. Maratha flag used to flutter on the Red Fort along with the mooghal flag. And during shah (1729-48), Marathas captured most of Deccan, Malwa and Gujarat. It was a famous saying in shah alam's time (1760-1806) - shah-e-alam, aj dilli ta Palam translates into so called shah e alam ki territory extends from Delhi to Palam. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

2) Mooghal did not just only decline but coomers rather got buttseks of the lifetime.

3) This point is untenable. The letters from britfags themeselves reveal how important BHARAT was for their survival.

4)Totally bs argument the only reason those britfags survived was due to Indian industry including gunpowder and ship building. During Shivaji’s reign, as per estimates, more than 300 ships of 300 tons capacity were launched. The Wadias alone built more than 350 ships Jamshedji Wadia, from a Parsi ship-building family, constructed the “Cornwallis”, a frigate with 50 guns, bought by britfags otherwise coomers had been eaten alive by sharks and orcas.

Republics require strong leaders and kings to survive and expand. Marathas had all such qualities in them.
Please make coherent arguments next time. This is problem with you people you merely copypasta andhas whos iq never goes up the room temperature. I will quickly explain why :

The high quality of the native-made iron, the early anticipation of the processes now employed in europe for the manufacture of high-class steels, and the artistic products in copper and brass gave India at one time a prominent position in the metallurgical world.‎
See - (Page 128 – The Imperial Gazetteer of India: Vol Iii; Originally published in 1908. Author: The Indian Empire Language: English).


Not just this ,
The Ashoka pillar made of steel, now in New Delhi, is a marvel of metallurgy. For more than 1600 years, it has stood in the rain, exposed to scorching sun, freezing winters and buried under the earth for a few years.
Still shining. No rust. And no deterioration. Estimated at 6-7 tons in weight, nearly 70 feet in height – and cast in a single block. There are reputedly other such pillars at Dhar and Kodachadri (Karnataka).

So for those eurofags/britfags their survival depended solely on BHARAT. Without BHARAT those had gone extinct a long time ago.

Yo @ezsasa If somebody argues that the expansion of britfags was easy then decline and departure was faster.

Between that plassey (1757) and the 1857 war was a hundred years. Between the 1857 War and Indian Independence (1947) was only ninety. Britfags lost control fast.

Remember dates you all.
1600 – East India Company formed.
1683 – Britfags approves new charter which can now wage war.
1739 – Nadir shah’s raid on India sees britfags missing in action.
1746 – Chauth for Bengal & Bihar ceded to Marathas by mooghals and britfags are still nowhere.
1757 – Battle of plassey – an artificial landmark in Indian history but important to britfags.
1761 – Ahmad shah abdali defeat Marathas at Panipat. Maratha powers starts to decline.
1764 – Britfags take advantage of Maratha /mooghal weakness and win the minor Battle of Buxar, 22 October; which lands them the Diwani of Bengal and loot of India begins. Regular famines become feature.
1765-1785 – Britfags win battles against eiurofags (french, dutch, danes) but lose wars against Indian kings.
1781 – Surrender of coomerwallis, October 19 in amreekunts.
1786 – 23 February, coomerwallis appointed for India position. Departing in May, arrived at Madras – 22 August.
1799 – Topisultan’s death and britfags consolidates in India.
1818 – The Third anglo-Maratha /Pindari War ends.
1839 – Death of Ranjit Singh.
1845-1849 – The Sikh Wars in which britfags gained supremacy over the last outpost of Indian power.
1857 – Combined Indian forces, led by the mooghal-Maratha alliance declare war. Major battles continue for 18 months.
Loss of britfags control:
1916 – April 16. BG Tilak declares Swaraj is my birthright; forms Home Rule League at the Bombay Provincial Conference held at Belgaum.
1927 – Indian polity refuses to negotiate with simon commissions.
1930 – Bhagat Singh displays disinterest in the legal outcome of his trial.
1944 – India’s leading industrialists come together (Bombay Club) and make an economic-plan document for an India which is yet to be born; for a government that was yet to be formed.
1946 – Naval Ratings raise the Indian Flag of independence.
1947 – Britfags out of India.

You should ignore him. All this knowledge means zilch to him.

His only goal in life is to slave for his white masters in the hope of a visa that's it. He will sell himself everyday and twice on Sunday for that.

Infact he will be happy if his country is colonized again and his people abused.
