Q. 4

Explain expansion of 1857 revolution in India.

Answer :

The immediate cause of the 1857 revolt was due to the outrage on the use of cartridges made of pork or beef fat. This, spurred with the social, administrative and economic policies led the people to rise up in revolt of the British. These revolutionaries set fire to the buildings and property of the British and declared war against them. Originating from Meerut, the revolt spread to different parts of India like Delhi, Agra, Punjab and even Rajasthan. The revolution in Rajasthan gained momentum and spread widely to places like Nasirabad, Neemach, Kota, Jhalawar, etc. Commoners and soldiers together were determined to end the British rule, with recurrent occasions of looting, burning and destruction of British property being held. However, this did not last long with the British curbing the revolt with the help of their superior military force, recapturing their lands and establishing an even harsher regime.
