What tasks did the rebellious sepoys in India set themselves? Consider whether such goals could have raised the whole of India to fight. After all, the country was fragmented into many states and its population professed different religions.
But the continued impoverishment of the Indian population led to an increase in resistance to the colonialists. The British were confident that they would always be protected by a strong army of sepoys, which they had strengthened for decades. But it was the sepoys who delivered an unexpected blow to the British. The reason for the Sipai uprising was that in 1857 the British introduced cartridges of a new oorazts. They were greased with beef or pork fat, and the wrapper had to be ripped off with the teeth. Among the sepoys were both Hindus and Muslims. For the first, their religion forbade eating beef, and the second for pork. As a result, both those and others united against the British on May 10, 1857, three Sipai regiments rebelled near Delhi. The uprising quickly spread to almost the entire Sipai army, which then numbered up to 230 thousand people. The British fought the rebels with extremely brutal methods. But they were able to suppress the uprising only by the spring of 1859, having transferred powerful reinforcements to India. Back in July 1858, the British Parliament announced the liquidation of the East India Company and proclaimed India a colony of Great Britain.
