Sikh Rebels of 1857 Mutiny


Recommended Posts


The Sikhs from Maharaja Ranjit Singh's territory (known as Manjha Sikhs) were not recruited for they were considered unreliable by the British as they had fought British twice in a span of 3 years (1845/46 & 1848/49). However Sikhs from Cis Sutlej region were recruited to form Regiment of Ludhiana and Regiment of Ferozepur in 1846. Shamsul Islam did a yeoman service in 2007 by writing Rebel Sikhs in 1857 where using contemporary Indian and British sources he gave instances where Sikhs joined the uprising of 1857.
