I headed the new bullet cartridges had been greased with animal fat!
The sepoys revolt
This humiliating those people!
Britain has gained control
There was a rumour going around that the new gun cartridges had been greased with animal fat , which was inappropriate for Hindus and Muslims. This made the sepoys feel as if the British didn’t respect their religion.
On the month of April 1857, 85 sepoys refused to use the new cartridges which they felt where unclean due to religious belief. Those 85 sepoys where imprisoned. During the the sentencing the British cuffed them in front of other sepoys, stripping there uniform. Shocked by humlation the 4000 sepoys killed every British man and child.
When the British finally regained control, they executed thousands of sepoys and other Indians. After severe the damage, the British passed control of the Indian empire to Britain and took away the East Indian company’s power.
