War Speeches

Description These war speeches by the highest British head of state of Punjab during (1914-18) at several big cities of United Punjab exhort the people to join the British army voluntarily and save the world and its civilization from the German fascists and their allies. The speeches project the English empire as defender of civilization and world peace. These are full of admiration for the British monarch and his benevolent policies towards India and its loyal people. The speeches display all the traits of a powerful colonial power forcing down their point of view down the throats of captive audiences without eliciting their response. There runs a streak of autocratic arrogance, unqualified assumption of Indian loyalty to the British cause and self-projected championship of world peace. The qualities of patriotism, bravery and allegiance of people of Punjab are being evoked for exploiting them to serve the colonial cause. The speeches have the characteristics of political opportunism and exploitative rider.[edit]
