Answer :

There are mixed opinions about the nature of the revolt of 1857, historians and sociologists observe the revolt in different ways.


• Sir John Seeley calls it a mere “Sepoy Mutiny”


• V.D. Savarkar calls it “The First War Of Independence”


• R.C. Majumdar calls it “Neither First Nor National War of Independence”.


The reasons to call it the first war of independence is:


a) It was for the first time that our entire nation irrespective of the caste, creed, race, and religion had come together and united with armed protest.


b) It was against the scary and strong power- the British, to gain independence from their colonial rule.


c) It took another 90 odd years to unite and formed the organized fight against the British.


d) It continued to inspire all Indians from past to present and remember those who sacrificed their precious lives for the freedom of our nation.


e) The freedom revolt of 1857 was the result of many causes and also busted out because of the degradation of religious sentiments. Therefore the reaction was very at a big price.


Although the 1st war of Independence had failed, it is marked as the first attempt of Indians to show their self-respect and also patriotism. The revolt had multiple causes and multiple results as well.
