A part of history that the colonialists do not want to reveal the truth and prefer to always remain silent. Their behavior when faced with the issue of colonialism is similar to saying “hiss!” to others. And in fact, it refers to the silence that the West and the colonial powers have always had regarding their past.
This is the same 400-year history in which the West tried to dominate the world by looting, oppression, killing and gaining wealth, and today, knowing what it has brought to the nations, it suppresses history and says, “Hey! No one should read the history and do not raise his voice.
