British Colonization of India
Many historians have debated between whether British's Colonization of India was detrimental or beneficial to the Indian society. Some have argued that the colonization of India was positive in the long run because it united the many territories of India that may have never joined on their own. Others suggest that the Britain's push for Indian's independence caused serious conflicts between India and Pakistan (The Indo-Pakistani War among many others). Also, many historians believe that Britain positively enlightened India in many literary and technological aspects and broadened their economy. However, others argued that these same technological advancements allowed India to create destructive weapons that destroyed their nation and others.
