    The Bengal Famine: How the British engineered the worst genocide in human history

    “I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion. The famine was their own fault for breeding like rabbits.”
    -Winston Churchill
    The British had a ruthless economic agenda when it came to operating in India and that did not include empathy for native citizens. Under the British Raj, India suffered countless famines. But the worst hit was Bengal. The first of these was in 1770, followed by severe ones in 1783, 1866, 1873, 1892, 1897 and lastly 1943-44. Previously, when famines had hit the country, indigenous rulers were quick with useful responses to avert major disasters. After the advent of the British, most of the famines were a consequence of monsoonal delays along with the exploitation of the country’s natural resources by the British for their own financial gain. Yet they did little to acknowledge the havoc these actions wrought. If anything, they were irritated at the inconveniences in taxing the famines brought about.


    The first of these famines was in 1770 and was ghastly brutal. The first signs indicating the coming of such a huge famine manifested in 1769 and the famine itself went on till 1773. It killed approximately 10 million people, millions more than the Jews incarcerated during the Second World War. It wiped out one third the population of Bengal. John Fiske, in his book “The Unseen World”, wrote that the famine of 1770 in Bengal was far deadlier than the Black Plague that terrorized Europe in the fourteenth century. Under the Mughal rule, peasants were required to pay a tribute of 10-15 per cent of their cash harvest. This ensured a comfortable treasury for the rulers and a wide net of safety for the peasants in case the weather did not hold for future harvests. In 1765 the Treaty of Allahabad was signed and East India Company took over the task of collecting the tributes from the then Mughal emperor Shah Alam II. Overnight the tributes, the British insisted on calling them tributes and not taxes for reasons of suppressing rebellion, increased to 50 percent. The peasants were not even aware that the money had changed hands. They paid, still believing that it went to the Emperor.
    Partial failure of crop was quite a regular occurrence in the Indian peasant’s life. That is why the surplus stock, which remained after paying the tributes, was so important to their livelihood. But with the increased taxation, this surplus deteriorated rapidly. When partial failure of crops came in 1768, this safety net was no longer in place. The rains of 1769 were dismal and herein the first signs of the terrible draught began to appear. The famine occurred mainly in the modern states of West Bengal and Bihar but also hit Orissa, Jharkhand and Bangladesh. Bengal was, of course, the worst hit. Among the worst affected areas were Birbum and Murshidabad in Bengal. Thousands depopulated the area in hopes of finding sustenance elsewhere, only to die of starvation later on. Those who stayed on perished nonetheless. Huge acres of farmland were abandoned. Wilderness started to thrive here, resulting in deep and inhabitable jungle areas. Tirhut, Champaran and Bettiah in Bihar were similarly affected in Bihar.
    Prior to this, whenever the possibility of a famine had emerged, the Indian rulers would waive their taxes and see compensatory measures, such as irrigation, instituted to provide as much relief as possible to the stricken farmers. The colonial rulers continued to ignore any warnings that came their way regarding the famine, although starvation had set in from early 1770. Then the deaths started in 1771. That year, the company raised the land tax to 60 per cent in order to recompense themselves for the lost lives of so many peasants. Fewer peasants resulted in less crops that in turn meant less revenue. Hence the ones who did not yet succumb to the famine had to pay double the tax so as to ensure that the British treasury did not suffer any losses during this travesty.
    After taking over from the Mughal rulers, the British had issued widespread orders for cash crops to be cultivated. These were intended to be exported. Thus farmers who were used to growing paddy and vegetables were now being forced to cultivate indigo, poppy and other such items that yielded a high market value for them but could be of no relief to a population starved of food. There was no backup of edible crops in case of a famine. The natural causes that had contributed to the draught were commonplace. It was the single minded motive for profit that wrought about the devastating consequences. No relief measure was provided for those affected. Rather, as mentioned above, taxation was increased to make up for any shortfall in revenue. What is more ironic is that the East India Company generated a profited higher in 1771 than they did in 1768.

    Although the starved populace of Bengal did not know it yet, this was just the first of the umpteen famines, caused solely by the motive for profit, that was to slash across the country side. Although all these massacres were deadly in their own right, the deadliest one to occur after 1771 was in 1943 when three million people died and others resorted to eating grass and human flesh in order to survive.
    Winston Churchill, the hallowed British War prime minister who saved Europe from a monster like Hitler was disturbingly callous about the roaring famine that was swallowing Bengal’s population. He casually diverted the supplies of medical aid and food that was being dispatched to the starving victims to the already well supplied soldiers of Europe. When entreated upon he said, “Famine or no famine, Indians will breed like rabbits.” The Delhi Government sent a telegram painting to him a picture of the horrible devastation and the number of people who had died. His only response was, “Then why hasn’t Gandhi died yet?”

    This Independence Day it is worthwhile to remember that the riches of the west were built on the graves of the East. While we honour the brave freedom fighters (as we should), it is victims like these, the ones sacrificed without a moment’s thought, who paid the ultimate price. Shed a tear in their memory and strive to make the most of this hard won independence that we take for granted today. Pledge to stand up those whose voice the world refuses to hear because they are too lowly to matter. To be free is a great privilege. But as a great superhero once said, “With great freedom comes great responsibility.”

    Most bangladeshis unfortunately aren't taught about this and most are ignorant regarding this tragedy.

    Zainul Abedin was an artist who drew pictures of what happened during the famine.

    Secular nationalist scums who can't spend an entire day without screaming something at pakistan work overtime to cover up these tragedies.

    I don't know of a single secular nationalist who is not critical of the British Raj and their crimes. What are you talking about?

    The Pakistan bashing is more prevalent because the struggle against Pakistani oppression are more recent. There is also historic significance since after 1757 loss of independence of Bengal, in 1971 independence was gained again. 1947 partition is less important to Bengalis.

    The only people who I've come across who knows about Bengali famine in the first place and the british atrocities are a couple of my teachers and my father. 98% of people don't even know about it, let alone criticize it.

    I watch those cancerous TV talk shows regularly and not ONCE, not ONCE I've heard those "experts" (usually hardline leftists who even accuse Awamis of not being secular enough) criticize or even talk about Bengali famine under British.

    That's because you are probably looking at the general people. The knowledgeable people know about it very well. The famines, British oppression and fame rebellions within Bengal is well known and subjects of poetry and literature. The reason it's not talked about that much in talk shows and other circles is because they are very old events and they are largely irrelevant these days in Bangladeshi life.

    Off topic: do you know where the thread for Pakistan independence 70 years is?

    Ofcourse it is relevant.

    But secular filth like Enamul Haq Enu will never mention this because it hurts their secular, pro-western, pseudo-nationalist agenda.

    1971 propaganda is a tool used by secularists to brain-wash the masses to help them stay in power. Everytime I see those secular cultural dogs open their onion mouths, my blood boils.

    Pseudo-nationalism.

    True nationalists would be angry at all injustices against them - both by Britain and Pakistan.

    But secular, pseudo-nationalist scums only blabber about Pakistan and say nothing about UK or their exploitation.

    They are too busy singing Amar sunar Bangla to be angry at the west, they adore their overlords anyway,

    It's one thing when a Kaafir behaves like a Kaafir, and another completely when a Muslim nation follows in their footsteps,

    This reminds me of the Hadith about the lizard hole,

    1971 is not a propaganda. They are right in talking about 71 and it's an important part of our history. I personally believe, secession from Pakistan was good for us, as such I respect Sheikh Mujib and Awami League's stance in 71. However, it's true nowadays they use it for propaganda and scoring political points.

    I heard your lady Khalifa Elizabeth is planning to abdicate to her son due to illness and old age. Why don't you pray for her health instead of wasting time commenting on a country (BD) that is not relevant to you?

    Maybe it is because the British were kuffar enemies and oppression was expected off them but Pakistanis were supposed to be our brothers, so they hate them more because of their wrongdoings?

    She's a kaafira, instead of acknowledging that our nations are following the Kuffar into the lizard hole as the Hadith says, you resorted to another insult,

    Your nation is the British nation and your Queen is Elizabeth. So why are you going into the lizard hole by living in Al-Bartaniya and giving bayat to lady Khalifah Elizabeth?

    Well I can somewhat understand why you have some mistrust or dislike for arabs. But if I remember correctly you even wanted the death of arabs by Iran. This is really crazy because as bad as they might be they are still muslims and we must not wish death or destruction on muslims (ofcourse the house of saud is another matter).

    No that's nonsense. Never heard that argument before. Besides the hardline secularists like Enu has mever called or identified himself as a muslim. So being "brothers" with pakistanis is not in question.

However, it's true nowadays they use it for propaganda and scoring political points.
    Firstly, the first person to entertain the idea of two states was not a Bangladeshi but a Pakistani- Bhutto who said after Awami League won the 1970 election, "Edhar hamara, udhar tumhara" which means that "That (land) is yours and this (land) is our."

    I don't oppose seperation from Pakistan also. But the problem is not the seperation but the ideology upon which the seperation happened. Instead of secularism it should have been upon Islamic principles - and I'm not even saying that shariah law will have to in place. I'm just saying that the Islam must be given a special position in the constitution, judiciary, education system, political system, etc.

    But unfortunately the seperation happened under the poisonous ideology of secularism. The author of the 1972 constitution, Dr. Kamal Hossain married his daughtee to filthy Jew. That should tell you what kind of people were involved with the seperation.

    Besides Pakistan was actually very secular at that time. They voted for a self-proclaimed Marxist, Bhutto who was more secular than Mujib.

    And finally it is an irony that JASHOD is teaching us about the 'greatness' of Sheikh MUjib when they and their communist lackeys were the first to oppose him. In 1974, Jashod terrorists terrorised the country and were even instrumental in causing a famine. They were also supported by the CIA. Sheikh Mujib also said he will remove the Red Horse of Communism from Bangladesh, so why are communists and Jashod allowed to do politics in BD if Jamaat can't?

    All this talk about 1971, constantly bashing Pakistan and talking about 'greatness' of Mujib is nothing but to further the Awami-Leftist agenda.

    BJP politicians and I mean TOP politicians have said that "Akhand Bharat" is a part of their foreign policy. They have literally threatened to annex both PAkistan and Bangladesh. So why didn't Awamis and leftists? Why don't Awamis protest against this and against the daily border killings by Indian border guard? Or do they only become nationalists when it comes to Pakistan?
