Recently, Kareena Kapoor posted a photo of King Charles to pay homage to Queen Elizabeth II. And, many netizens weren’t happy with this gesture as many remembered Queen Elizabeth II as a symbol of oppressive colonial rule in India
Here’s what people had to say about it:
A netizen wrote, “Once a gulaam always a gulaam,”. Another said, “Kaise log hai apne desh me, kya faida Independence Day manane ka jab yehi karna hai toh.” One person wrote, “Usko aesa lagta hoga since she is also a “royal” person, she should give a tribute to another royal person.””Begani shaadi mein Abdullah deewana. Also angrez chale gaye par itne saare Almeida chor gaye.”, read a comment.
Another one pointed out, “Well, Saif’s ancestors were Afghani tribal chieftains who were given the ‘nawab’ title and the Patuadi province by the British East India company for siding with them and helping them in their battle against the Marathas in the Anglo- Maratha war of 1804. It’s not like they were actual aristocrats of the subcontinent (so much for the eugenics 😐) Saifu and begum ‘KKK’ has a reason to acknowledge their colonial masters. Ek ♥ to banta hain.”
“I saw footage of brown ppl in the queue doing actual dua in front of Queen’s coffin and another man think he was sikh , bowed down. People need to learn a thing or two about their history,” a netizen said.
“I just don’t understand how can these people be so blissfully ignorant/foolish. Aren’t they supposed to be rich enough to have the means to get a good education and idk developing some basic intellect to think?”, wrote someone.
