India, Pakistan, Bangladesh: Rethinking 1857

Categories: South Asia, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, History

Sepia Mutiny discusses an article by William Dalrymple [1] that explores the uprising in 1857. “I don’t think Dalrymple is saying that everyone involved in the Rebellion of 1857 was motivated by this kind of religious feeling (indeed, as I understand it there were as many or more Hindu sepoy rebels). But it is worth considering whether people might feel differently about the concept of “jihad” when one shares a political and military goal with a Jihadi.”
