They say democracy is declining or at threat in India and yet, they themselves can't tolerate just a joke. They believe they are some sort of authority that it must be justified of them when they do it for they belong to a special race while everyone else must be taking their command and prove themselves to these racist bunch.

BBC Breakfast presenters Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt were replaced following a joke about the union flag and Queen's Elizabeth's portrait in the background of an interview with MP Robert Jenrick.

The minister laughed at the Joke but later tweeted,
We’re always proud to fly the Union Flag at @mhclgIt’s a symbol of liberty and freedom that binds the whole country together.


Naga Munchety had to apologise as a result of the backlash over nothing.




White media enraged and calls for dismissal of the co-hosts for joking about it and call for expulsion of the people unless they prove unquestionable love and devotion to the queen. Now that what I call free and tolerant. Any Indian liberal here who wants India to learn from white masters.

Would they debate their intolerance and racism in their parliament? It seems they care more about Indian farmers than their own. Maybe we will have to do it on their behalf.

The Telegraph's knucklehead, Simon Heffer, inserts race in the matter asking BBC to start appointing people of similar talent who happen to be white, middle-aged and who don’t despise their country.
Yes that's Europe enlightened and not racist.

Western nations must first set their own house in order before they sit in judgement of others.

A few weeks back a lot of noise was made in the British parliament over India's farm laws.

British lawmakers accused New Delhi of cracking down on farmers, calling the situation "deeply concerning".

We are bringing you this story in which you can see British cops, most of whom are men dragging away a female protester as her jeans fell down, and she's left exposed in her underpants.

Isn't this "deeply concerning" for British lawmakers?

A group of around 150 demonstrators had gathered to protest against a controversial policing bill.

The protesters were largely peaceful and contained, but dozens of police officers arrived at the scene.

Prepared to crack down, they pushed and dragged away from the protesters, claiming to be just doing their job.

Now as for the woman who was left partially exposed, the Manchester Police said they have spoken to her and offered their apologies.

They say the incident was not deliberate but was indeed regrettable.

The question is: how many times will UK cops express their "regret" for forcefully detaining peaceful protesters?

Not a one-off incident

What happened in Manchester is not a one-off instance.

On March 13, a vigil was held in London for the killing of Sarah Everard.

She was a 33-year-old woman who was murdered on her way home.

A London cop is the main accused in the case.

And as hundreds of women gathered to express their grief and pay respects, the London Police launched a crackdown.

They arrested the women who were just trying to raise their concerns about women safety.

What has the British government done about this?

It has tabled a new bill to further increase the powers of the police. The bill is called "The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Court Bill" and it's highly problematic.

It gives the police the power of discretion to determine which protests are unlawful and must be dealt with force.

This has led to a national outcry with rights groups and civilians hitting the streets, calling "kill the bill".

They say the bill will outlaw every protest that causes discomfort to 10 Downing Street and will make it easier to convict protesters over petty charges.

In the last two weeks, these protests have taken place in Bristol, Birmingham, Brighton, Cambridge, Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield, among others.

The protests have been peaceful, but the police response not so much.

In the Gravitas video of this story, you can see police brutality in the UK.

Police are using shields as weapons, hitting protesters with batons, shoving them to the ground and when all else fails, simply tossing a police club in their faces.

This is happening in Britain where the parliament is more concerned about debating rights and freedom in former colonies.

Baki hum kitna bhi victim victim chila le. Money and hard power talks, jiski latthi use ki... . Sam, dam, danda..

West will listen only when it hurts economically. In this case of oxford student, unless some laywer is able to sue and collect million $$ from oxford university for this incident, this will keep happening with desi students abroad. This is something org like CAIR and Chini diplomats have mastered over time.

Our problem is powerless-ness + failure to exert enough economic force for now. This goody goody every man for himself does not work in larger scale of things. Improving economy and innovation is key that will give us power.
