Queen’s funeral not celebrated by all

September 27, 2022

Queen Elizabeth is being laid to rest, but not everybody is celebrating. In former colonies, there is a backlash against the pomp and circumstance. Some in India feel they are being forced to glorify an oppressive monarchy. “The anger is towards the institutionalized practices of the monarchy and what it represents,” says UTSA political science and geography professor Ritu Mathur, who specializes in postcolonialism research. The funeral is bringing up the legacies of colonialism, including calls for atonement and reparations.
