  • Shashi should leave forever to britain .

  • Britain should make "an official apology" to subcontient.......

  • ہر ناممکن کام کو ممکن کر دینے والا وظیفہ آج ہی میں نے یوٹیوب پر اپ لوڈ کیا ہے آپ بھی وزٹ کر کے دیکھیں جزاک اللہ

  • Everyone needs to chill, why should the current leaders apologise when they did not build up the empire?

    • Well they are not even accepting the atrocities their late Politicians did to India and Africa too!

  • This man is an Indian treasure!!! I am an American, born in India but in the US since 1971. Never encountered an Indian like this man! I hope the Government of India has awarded him the highest Indian award, similar to a Knighthood! THANK YOU DR SASHI THAROOR! In the next few months I am going to watch all your content on the web! Thank you again and God Bkess!

  • The best ever speech ever heard !

  • Well What British gave to India - Language

  • Truth makes me angry against Britishers and pitty for the people who suffered torture.

  • India is a failed democracy Most if not All parliamentarian politicians are criminals, and all their institutions are corrupt. They are the puppets of colonialism, help remove the yoke of parliamentarian system it is a corrupt system from the necks of our people. Modernization of Panchyantic political system is must! The truth is that India is still colony of UK monarchy who had forced repressive parliamentarian political to subdue people. India is still a dominion under commonwealth nations of British Monarchy under British Law. The EVM main switch is in the hand of European neo-colonial powers and it is tuned on and off in favor of populist puppet parliamentarian political parties and their leaders who follow the orders and implement them. This switch which is turned on and off through IMF, World Bank, WHO,UN Security council, and NATO. So good luck with your dream to think India is an free country and a democracy. Indians of all faiths and walks of life needs to recognize that fact that their country is under remote occupation and they are dealing with a political system which was forced upon them by European colonial powers to create channel for smooth follow of goods, services and cheap qualified labor after the colonial powers had left the occupied lands. The parliamentarian system was created by European political scientists in the favor of European monarchy where multiple parties fight it out for the administration of the nation while the monarchs control these parties from the sidelines. Parliamentarian political system is not a true democratic system for the people by the people. The parliamentarian political system is not our Indigenous political system. our was Panchayat System which currently needs to be modernized and implemented at village, city, state and national levels. Good effort, it’s time we start the deeper discussion of lost of our kingdom and our way of life! Best form of Government is Panchyat system which is based on 5 Qualifed leadership of community voted into office by the people. 2 leaders out of five leaders are changed every 3 years using blockchain system and new 2 members are added to join the other 3 leaders by the people. This system can be modernized by some of the fine eastern and western minds with scientific and spiritual background. American constitution is a keeper should be incorporated. Parliamentarian system runs by multiple parties is a disaster, not a democracy! It divides people into party factions and turns leaders against each other instead of working with each other to serve people. Waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ke fateh!

    • Let modi go we will come back some of our sikh brothers can't break the unity and Diversity of India just wait

  • I am not Indian but hats off to Mr. Shashi Tharoor.He is brave and honest. Unlike other good speakers like Obama who praise West for Decracy and excepting others who are Non whites, but actually its just an empty Rhetoric.The West deep state is evil and avoid democracy and free speech and fair treatment and adopts double standards. South Sudan, East Timour they press Referendums and they became separated from their Mother countries.What about Zanzibar,Palestine, Uigur Muslims? No chance.

  • Tharoor Has nothing except two things 1) Fluent English like British Accent, 2) Manipulate to others in a diplomatic manner & Politics in a very Tactical Manner...

    • @ruchi vishwakarma Absolutely A looter & a dacoit . Never Share his lotting & Bloddy history to his upcoming Generation... 🤣

    • Well to talk in that British Accent one must knowledge and he certainly has. Where most of the Britishers speaks rubbish and don't have the knowledge of their country and the wrongdoings Britishers done to India and Africa.

  • Dumbstruck. How can anyone be so good naturally...

  • Shashi is just roasting every British Neo imperialist in existence.

  • I love his voice.

  • Speaking and condemning so much about India in Britain and did nothing in India while he was a minister other than tweeting 24x7 on every damn things .

    • Atleast this is his way of delivering respect to India. I know he didn't do anything tangible to India but this is also a doing which led so many britishers to update their history knowledge. So this is his way of representing India and i believe ones this Modi get off the seat he will do things and i guess he already doung in South India in name of roads and buildings

  • The only indian i admire, love from Lahore

  • The quack betty identically zoom because verse ontogenically tip forenenst a woozy coat. coordinated, windy end

  • Stop talking about the past and fix our present.. country

  • A son should not be punished for his father's crimes....... We will forgive but not forget. Even after being looted severely , we are now above them as a country in many fields(military, gdp etc) . But still, we Indians are humble and do not believe in revenge or expansionism. And also we must know that the pay-back amount won't be enough even if they sold whole Britain 2 times.

  • Indian curriculum - teaches the truth in 3 chapters for 4-6 years. British curriculum - literally, just a line, "we were just trying to" modernize" India but they didn't allow lol"

  • UK government should apologize to the Indian people for brutally killing innocent people in the Jallianwala bagh massacre in India in the year 1919

  • Love from India .Thanks to the University of EDINBURGH for inviting us to there place and allow us to express our views. And Dr tharoor is one of the best person from our India ❤️

  • Every country has criminals and isolated cases of crime and so has India. Why is that guy from Bhopal highlighted an internal issue in an international platform? Showing off himself as smart? Foolishness

  • Brits should be ashamed of their history

  • Ye sala gaddar Pakistan ko bharaj ke internal secret bata ta ha bhagao isko sala dalal

  • Ek no.. Ka randibaj

  • The supreme physician macropharmacologically unfasten because button wessely marry near a adaptable trouble. brave, noiseless decision

  • Should he elected PM of india...

  • Last line was so true Lets forgive but not forgot

  • The speech was excellent and a brilliant slap for the Brits. However, he showed his third rate khangressi mentality by belittling a democratically elected government and promoting the Lutyens agenda in a foreign land, instead of destroying such fake narratives.

  • Religion is fake identity

  • Well spoken to the point of shaming a tyrant race that robbed ,murdered and looted India amongst other countries by Shashi Tharoor ,yet I am today more a shamed that it takes a stooge like Tharoor who may I remind the rest of viewers of this debate ,supports a family that has done just that since independence for over 75 year and still are doing just what the British did .

  • When u realise that all the *mahapurush* are from India🇮🇳❤️🧡

  • How many of u guys think that Mr Tharoor shud b made as the head of the Congress party??

  • PLEASE READ QURAN PAK IN YOUR MOTHER TONGUE SO COULD BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT ALLAH TA'ALA WANT FROM US. PLEASE DO SUCH TASK IN YOUR REMAINING LIFE ONCE A TIME. QURAN PAK WILL BETTER FAVOUR IN FRONT OF ALLAH TA'ALA.

    • Ja be lulle

  • In the entire first Christian century Jesus is not mentioned by a single Greek or Roman historian, religion scholar, politician, philosopher or poet. His name never occurs in a single inscription, and it is never found in a single piece of private correspondence. Zero! Zip references. Dr. Bart Ehrman

  • Sasitaroor don't dig own tooth and smell British empire are traitor sucking our blood you sasitaroor told earlier British robs 200 billions stolen from India

  • Thank you firstly We where never taught any of this in history all. Thank you My question is with the history behind us and the knowledge we have from it Why is it that us humans have not still learned any lessons The same is happening today 2020 / 2021 Oh am I allowed to even ask Thank you

  • Every time I listen to him trust me, it brings tears in my eyes thinking what foreigners particularly British did to our country and Asia, Africa respectively. 😌😭

    • Don’t forget what islam did as easily as He does

    • Yep..she is one of our sister from north east...

    • North east?

  • He never showed the grits and guts to speak about ghoulish, Gazni, tumors, abdalis, babies and moguls,..only broad minded and safe target West, he decides to choose for criticism, very “ brave “ man,

  • Pakistan still begging money bro did get your answer it's already paid

  • Wow... Awesome

  • Britts::: pehli bar me maza nahi aya. Phir kro BEIZTI

  • why had you been so weak to let them loot? nothing gonna come out of it, just learn from the past and do better for the Future!

  • If he replaced by pappu i think modi has a compitition.

    • Modi is the real pappu gobar bhakt

  • Yeah.... They have done the bad thing to us... But inspite of that we got attached to main streem. Why Shashi Tharoor haven't talked about Islam invasion before them,who destroyed our culture and education system and everything. Brothers and sisters he will not explain about that thing. His speeches are biased. I do not think Britishers have done something wrong. Intead of that they have given many thing. Yeah every person is opportunistic,so Britishers were.

    • You don't think Britishers did something significantly wrong- words of typical rss chaddi bhakt and descendent of boot lickers

  • Just Fantastic lecture. Salute.

  • This is what we called in our realm 'dana takun ghoda udvun gheney'

  • He should be face of Congress not Rahul Gandhi

  • “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

  • Fantastic.

  • Superb.

  • Shashi Tharoor's lecture At Edinburgh University England U Kimpacted deeply atleast to Myself and He may be Selected As a New Secretary General of the United Nations to look after The Tremendous suffering Problems of the World Particularly in SwitLand That is so-called North-East India for the Liberation / Freedom of the NAGAS' Political issues having Special Reference to the Agreement of the NAGAS' INDEPENDENCE On 14 August 1947 before India's Independence on 15 August 1947 in which Even Gandhi Refused to Join For celebrations of India's Independence even Gandhi said that " Well A Country INDIA is Nonsense " By DR.Ashikho. DaiLi MeMei MAWO NAKA Founder SwitLand For World Peace Freedom Security Development etc. In Jesus Christ Amen

  • Shashi Tharoor is an Indian nationalist who would sooner see the British brought to their knees. Yet he is invited to speak in Edinburgh. I realise the Scottish have never liked the English but I have to ask..Why?

    • He is not a nationalist. He is part of the evil elite of India who have been ruining India since independence. The only reason he speaks bad about the British empire because he wants to gain popularity among young people of the urban middle class in India and showing the the British empire in a bad way is the one of the ways. (by gaining popularity what I meant is gain votes).

  • I love how Indians always love to look at the bad side of the British Raj.

    • @Jai Krishna Well, that only for the short term. India did eventually recover from the population loss and now has a population of 1.3 billion. So in the long term, the good things outnumber the bad things by a far margin.

    • @Kamanashis Kar the bad things outnumbered the good things by a far Margin 🤷🏻‍♂️

    • @The BluntFarmer So you don't like democracy, proper law enforcement, modernization, and capitalism?

    • @The BluntFarmer Absolutely....and this speech explains it well.

    • there is only one side ..and unfortunately that is bad.

  • Shame you people's

  • Shashi Tharoor should be congress PM candidate, Rahul baba does not qualify as PM material even though he has Gandhi surname ( grand father Feroze Jehangir Ghandy 🙂)

  • Dr.Tharoor you have more capability to lead India than a bigot . Pl do the neeedful

  • I don't have the courage to listen to this painful story Oh what's the English did with India and now talking for human rights

  • Dr Shashi is so fluent that even Closed Caption can't capture what he said at some moments in the video....

  • This man should have been honest in telling that Muslim Leauge was not set up by british rather by Muslims because congress did everything to suppress Muslims so they didn't trust congress anymore

  • India is a failed democracy The truth is that India is still colony of UK monarchy who had forced repressive parliamentarian political to subdue people.

  • 🙏🙏🙏

  • Me: I'm a master of English and history. Shashi Tharoor: *speaks* Me: Inshallah, the boys played well.

  • I think indian,Pakistan ,bangladesh and other countries which was destroyed by england should attack now and make them suffer like they made for forfather suffers only then the justice will be done

  • Now Britain loot by giving tax havens to third world corrupts who steal from their lands & bankrupt their poor who then hv to pay for these crimes in high taxes when those poor hv to borrow heavily in order to sustain & live

  • How this person not the president or the prime Minister of our nation 🤔. .. Political objections 👍

  • This man is just more than a genius soul. I always fall in love with his narration, with his humorous way of dialogue delivery, his influential and powerful words along with symbolic expressions, his authentic knowledge and grip on history and more than that, being so courageous standing amongst them and showing the true colors of their ancestors, is something which makes him totally a different personality and equally makes u love & respect him. Last but not the least, his rhythm, fluency and continuity of connecting it next to next, are all just exceptional and verily make him second to none. Wish there would be more sensible people aroud. In plan to read few of his books soon... Love and respect from Pakistan🇵🇰
