The panel were discussing whether history books should be rewritten following the rise in Black Lives Matter protests.

The marches have been happening around the world following the death of George Floyd, a black man who was killed by a white police officer in the United States.

What did Ranvir say?

On Loose Women, Ranvir said: "The idea about what made Britain great is something I think we really need to look at.

"We didn't just become a rich nation by just this tiny little island. We did it by going out to the world, conquering other nations and stripping them of their resources."

She continued: "Giving them other stuff too but at the same time making them feel second class."

Kaye Adams cut in: "Yeah but Ranvir, we're getting back to interpretation.

"That's your interpretation, which I happen to agree with, but people coming from a different perspective will have a different perspective."

Ranvir said: "There are facts in history which aren’t taught.

"Like the famine in Bengal which Churchill’s behaviour affected, the fact that Gandhi worked in South Africa and had a terrible view of black South Africans."

She added: "People make mistakes in their lives and we have to be honest about that.

"I think there’s blind spots because it’s who’s telling the story. People who have been left behind never had power to tell those stories and I think that is a time to change.

It is feisty isn't it but it's important.

"I think people who built up all that pain for years and years are now finally being heard."

Kaye asked: "So history is written by the victors?" to which Ranvir said: "Yeah and it has to change."

Following the debate, Ranvir said: "I felt quite emotional. It is feisty isn't it but it's important."
