Found on the Net:
Pro-Commie: Famines in India killed 56 million people under British rule.
Anti-Commie: Yes, and how many people were killed in India since 1947?
First of all, I want to say that I agree somewhat with a famous Russian dissident who said, “The only thing I hate more than Communists is anti-Communists.”
Next I will answer the question of how many people were killed in India since 1947.
200 million excess deaths since 1947 compared to China, and that includes all of the deaths under Maoism. Mao set a world record for doubling life expectancy in the shortest period of time. It went from 32 in 1949 under glorious Chinese capitalism to 65 in 1976 under Mao. Yes, Mao killed many people, but tens of millions must be an exaggeration. There were 1 million excess deaths during the Cultural Revolution, but the economy grew 10% every year, and the number of schools and medical clinics exploded.
China and India started at the same place. Indian capitalism or whatever it was killed 200 million MORE people than Mao did. There were 200 million excess deaths in India than in China. That is, if India had gone the Chinese road, 200 million lives would have been saved. And they probably would have put in a one child policy too.
So every time you hear “Commies killed X million,” or “Mao killed 100 million,” or whatever the drivel of the day is, just remember, no matter how many Mao killed, India killed 200 million more than that!
Let that sink in a bit.
Capitalism surely continues to kill.
