Why did British leave India? was their pure purpose to take all wealth and gold from India and then they said tata good bye or there was international pressure on British to not to tyrannize Indians and leave India? British did the same thing with Australia but they never left it. Australia was easy prey for British to take over as they didn't have to clash with Australian. Australians have been tyrannized more than Indians by the British so why they never raised any objection. why the Australians never got to gather and asked British to leave their county?
