Why were the Sanyasis angry with the British?

Answer :

The Sannyasi rebellion or Sannyasi Revolt (1773-1800) was the rebellious activities of sannyasis and fakirs in Bengal against the East India Company rule in the late 18th century. Following a devastating famine in 1769-70, the British officials were harsh in their tax collections and this harsh treatment extended even to the pilgrims. The restrictions imposed on the pilgrims angered the Sanyasis who along with the public raided English factories and collected contributions from towns creating a series of conflicts between themselves and the English rulers.
