The British take over India

reyna osborne

The British tried to be helpful to India, but end up causing them to be in more trouble than the were in before.

The reasons the British were harmful to India...

British Power

The British took over all the higher positions in the government and left the Indians without jobs. The British had economic and political power.The British stared out trading with the Indians but ended up trying to take over their country.British had better weapons than the Indians that could easily beat them. They also had military dominance they could help them for many years.

British Laws

They British had some Indians that were Muslim and Hindu in their army. They offended them with the new guns they had. In order to operate the gun they had to bite off the cartridge, which was covered in pork and beef fat. The Muslims and Hindus would be going against their own religion by eating pork or beef.

Another religion they had was Sati. It was when the widow would commit suicide by jumping into a fire called a pyre, at the husbands funeral. The British thought this was weird and mad no sense and tried to band it from happening.

Sepoy Mutiny

Everytime any of the soldiers died in the war there was to be a death report sent. The British decided not to file the death report so that the wifes did nbot find out and commit suicide by jumping into the pyre.
