There is a lot of truth in this statement, but it is a sweeping generalisation that ignores the French Revolution and the US war of independence. And don't forget that freedom in the British Empire was not something Imperialists were all that happy with.

The French are largely responsible for the liberal democracies of mainland Europe, and probably deserve some credit for the UK and USA.

India is a democracy thanks to British influence. People tend to take freedom and democracy for granted, but without the influence of France and the UK, the world would be largely absent of them. For almost all of the history of human civilisation, all nations were some kind of dictatorship. It's surprising how people can see this revolution unfolding before them and not even recognise it for what it is, like they feel guilty for being on the receiving end of its benefits.

I thought that [traditionally] many Indians were in the textile and clothing trade ?

There was no nation-state called "India" before the British ...
