The Muslim scholar of India, Syed Ameer Ali (1849 - 1928), is remembered as a man who, at times, recognized the benefits that can be bestowed upon developing nations as a result of British imperialism, but in this 1908 column the journalist preferred to list only the more vulgar aspects of European colonization that Ali had previously written about:

"A few years ago 'Spread-eagleism' was used for mere purposes of ridicule; christened 'Imperialism' it has acquired a holly meaning - it sanctions crusades against the liberty of weaker states...England treats her provincials worse than Rome did."

[NOTE: The author of this piece mistakenly assumed Ali to have been a follower of Hinduism.]

Christianity can be read here...
