Britain has outgrown its racism: Shashi Tharoor as Rishi Sunak becomes UK PM

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor said Rishi Sunak being appointed as Britain’s first Indian-origin PM was “extraordinary at multiple levels”. “You can see that Britain has outgrown their racism,” said Tharoor, adding that the development indicates the UK has “shown tremendous willingness to absorb and admit people of other religious faiths”. Britain has focused on merit, he added.
