James Mill was a Scottish economist and a political philosopher, who had published a massive three-volume work i.e. “A History of British India. James Mill divided the history of India in three periods – Hindus, Muslims and British. Mill thought that the Asian Society was at a lower level of civilization than that of Europe. According to him before the rule of the British, the Indian Society was ruled by Hindu and Muslim despots and religious intolerance, caste taboos and superstition were spread.
