    - In the aftermath, the British would not have won without the help of Sikhs. The Sikhs were also very crucial to the British after the revolt. No high ranking sepoy would ever be trusted as an officer again. But rather Sikhs who were highly regarded for their fighting skill, were allowed to where their turbans, beards, swords, and knives while commanding their own regiments. This continued from 1858 all the way through to WWI and the Sikhs proudly put themselves stoutly at the right hand of the British Colonial power. The British were enraged and began to seek retribution for the attacks. They gave the power in Delhi back to the Hindu's and took it completely from the Muslims as the British viewed them as they primary instigators of the sepoy rebellion.
    E. Causes of the Sepoy Mutiny
    -In 1806, Sepoys making up the majority of the Indian army rebelled when they were ordered to not wear religious marks on their faces and to wear leather. Another factor that caused the rebellion was the introduction of a new weapon called teh Lee-Enfield Rifle. This was the imediate-The immediate cause (meaning

    -The underlying reasons why they rebelled is simply because the British were intruding on their native culture. The British came in thinking that their way of living was the way to live and they exerted their cultural influence upon the natives. In 1813, Christian missionares were given free access to India on British command. The British passed a law that gave Christian converts from Hinduism the right to inherit their ancestral property therefore trying to persuade natives through bribary to convert. A big upsetment was the British move to make Sati, the custom by which a widow was burned to death on the funeral pyre of her dead husband, illegal. Also they made English the official language for education instead of Persian, Arabic, and Sanskrit. These policies and the British arrogance angered both Muslims and Hindus. This was the underlying cause of the mutiny of 1857.
