 because they were discriminated by british sepoys

  • 0

Their are many reason :

1) The sepoys, who were Indians trained by the British as soldiers, heard rumors that the cartridges for their new Enfield rifles were greased with lard and beef fat. Since the cow is sacred to Hindus, and the pig is abhorrent to Muslims, all the sepoys were outraged, and they mutinied. Although initially the mutiny was spontaneous, it quickly became more organized and the sepoys even took over the cities of Delhi and Kanpur.

2) They were discontented bcoz dere salaries & opportunities of promotion were not equal to those of British soldiers.

3) The special allowance given 2 them when dey were sent 2 war was discontinued.

4) The sepoys also resented British regulations banning beards and the use of caste marks, and the replacement of turbans with leather caps !!

1.The depots were paid much less than the British soldiers. 2.They were also treated unfairly by their British officers. 3.The chances of promotions of an Indian soldiers was less/neglected/negligible.

The British had come up with the new idea of greased cartridges. These cartridges were to be opened with the mouth and were coated with a layer of cow and pig fat. This offended the religious practices of the Hindus and Muslims, thus causing them to rebel/revolt against the British.



Hope this Helps!!!
