    Solution:

    The above statement is true.
    James Mill was indeed a fierce critic of Orientalists. Orientalists are people with erudite knowledge of the cultures and languages of Asia. One of the many people who attacked the Orientalists was James Mill. James Mill argued that the British should not attempt to please the natives; the British should not teach the natives what the natives respect or want. Instead, James Mill wanted the British to teach what was practical and useful from their point of view. James Mill did not want the natives to be taught sacred literature and poetry but the technological advances made by the West. The Eastern view of learning has received strong criticism from British officials since the early 19th century.
