Best Answer

The British who colonized India had a very formalized sense of White racial superiority and Desi (improperly called "Brown people") inferiority. It was believed that Indians could, at best, emulate the British and those who did would be called "civilized". Racial discrimination was especially intense towards those individuals who were very religious, but not Christian. The most antagonistic relationship was between the British Christians and Desi Muslims.
