From very starting Britishers wanted to rule India as India was always rich in culture, resources, land, labor and minerals. The temperature and atmosphere in India are considered as one of the finest temperatures for human beings.
Because of all these factors Britishers looted and influenced India and its people, they suppressed Indians in every way possible. They made laws which benefited them and their people and disregarded the needs of the Indians.
Indian law is one of the victims of this era, Indian law which for name’s sake was made for Indians but always showcased the superiority and influential status of Britishers.
