© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Cause and Consequence Background causes of mutiny in 1857 Many Indians disliked Britain increasing its control over India in the mid 19 th century. In 1856, Lord Dalhousie, the Governor General of India, took over the Muslim state of Awadh. This angered many sepoys from Awadh. Sepoys were paid extra for working in states that were not controlled directly by the British. Now sepoys from Awadh had their pay reduced. Dalhousie also banned suttee. This was seen as an attack on Indian customs. English was also made the official language of India instead of Persian, which upset many Indians.
© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Cause and Consequence Trigger cause of mutiny in 1857 The mutiny started in Meerut in Northern India in May Sepoys believed they were being given cartridges greased with the fat of cows and pigs for their rifles. Hindus regarded cows as sacred animals, while Muslims believed pigs were unclean animals. Many sepoys believed the British were trying to weaken their religious beliefs. 85 sepoys refused to use the cartridges (when loading their rifles the sepoys would have to bite the end of the cartridges). They were sentenced to 10 years hard labour. On 10 May, more sepoys at Meerut revolted and killed their British officers. The revolt spread quickly to other parts of India. The rebels captured Delhi and Cawnpore. The British, with the help of loyal Sikh soldiers, took 14 months to crush the revolt.
