Rishi Sunak is British, born in May 1980, the son of Indian immigrants, from Kenya.
Despite the amount of ethnic and religious difference between Rishi and his conservative British society, this did not prevent him from succeeding, and becoming a politician and a prominent member of the ruling Conservative Party, to occupy the position of Chancellor of the Exchequer from 2020 to 2022, which is the most important position after the Prime Minister, before he resigned, and dragged with him other ministers, and they are the reason for the collapse of the government of Boris Johnson.
Rishi was born in Southampton, educated at Winchester College, then studied philosophy, politics and economics at Lincoln College, Oxford, and subsequently obtained an MBA from the famous American Stanford University, during which he met his wife Akshata Murthy, daughter of N.R. Narayana Murthy, a well-known Indian businessman and founder of Infosys IT Company.
After graduation, Rishi worked with the huge investment company Goldman Sachs, then worked as a partner in hedge funds, then got involved in politics.
In 2015, Rishi was elected to the British Parliament, and worked in Theresa May’s government as a deputy minister, and voted to withdraw from the European Union.
He supported the election of Boris Johnson as Conservative President, and later Prime Minister, appointed him as Undersecretary of the Treasury, then replaced Sajid Javid as Treasury Secretary, who is also of Indian descent.
He resigned after his differences with his boss deepened over economic policy, and announced his candidacy to lead the Conservative Party.
A short, but impressive biography, and if the Conservative Party chooses him as president, and his chances seem great, he will be the first British of Indian origin to occupy the position of Prime Minister of Great Britain.
This will be a great civil and historical event, and a slap in the face of extremists and racists, especially from our group.
Even if he was not chosen in the end, and his efforts were disappointing, it is enough that he obtained in the early stages of the election the votes of the majority of conservative MPs.
We say, and repeat, that things are always at their conclusion. Despite our often false rants that we are human, our societies are highly racist, tribal, racial, doctrinal and religious, and we are far from true and abstract humanity.
Britain, which was once the greatest colonial country in history, and ruled the world from one end to the other, adapted to its situation and accepted the other.
If the citizen is distinguished by his political, financial and economic experiences, and you accept him without looking at trivial matters, especially when it comes to the higher interests of the state, then do not hesitate to give the highest positions to the most qualified people and not to those of renowned families.
These matters, as proven time and again have no importance in the scales of the modern era, and it does not mean much.
Humanity is moving towards equality, and countries that refuse to implement the entire provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as do the majority of our countries, are destined to remain racist and losers, and a mere unequal marriage can, from the point of view of tribal, sectarian, family or religious, to ignite a real civil war, and this is the height of ignorance and backwardness.
