Great Ghadar

The Ghadar of 1857

They did not anticipate that their subjects would dare to revolt against their rule in such a forceful manner. The Ghadar of 1857 had the potential to not only snatch away their prized colony, but also to inspire such revolts in other colonies of their empire.

Ghadar of 1857 - Barbaric retribution of a “civilized” colonial power

Thumbnail-colonial justiceThe British colonisers could not easily crush the Ghadar of 1857.
