Indians suffered several atrocities during British rule and the latter has never tendered an apology on it but this might change as former diplomat-turned-Member of Parliament Shashi Tharoor has shared a petition which if gets 100,000 signatures then this topic will be debated in British parliament.

It is all started by Avinash Tharoor, who is Shashi Tharoor nephew and is based in London and if his petition gets the required number of signatures then the idea of giving an apology to India will at least be considered.

Shashi Tharoor shared the petition on his twitter page and wrote “In the interests of full disclosure, petition was created by my London-born British nephew”. He had earlier described the wrongdoings done by Britain as “historical amnesia”.
