1857
Indians resent land taxation by the British. They also fear the British might try to impose Christianity on them and force them to abandon their traditional way of life.
This leads to outbreaks of violence, brutally ended by the British.

independence! participation & central government for all the states & protection of Muslim minorities & elections
1940
The Muslim League supports the idea of a separate Muslim territory. The Congress strongly objects. Violence between Hindus and Muslims ensures.
1942
Mahatma Gandhi starts his "Quit India" movement. Escalation of violence.
“Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the
time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly
or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the
midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to
life and freedom.”
Those were the historic words with which Jawaharlal
Nehru rang down the curtain on the British Raj in
Parliament House, Delhi, at midnight, August 14, 1947.
The great Urdu poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz was less enthusiastic.
He described independence as “a scarred daybreak, a
nightbitten dawn”. At first he appeared to be right. On the
very day that Nehru dedicated himself to the service of the
Indian people and to the still larger cause of humanity, riots
broke out in Punjab on both sides of the new border, in
Amritsar in India, and in Lahore in Pakistan. Nobody knows
how many people were killed in the terrible bloodshed that
followed Partition. Some estimate 200,000, some 400,000
and some a million. My father left India just before Partition.
But we got news that our Muslim nursery boy Jaffa had been
killed in riots in Bengal. We were stunned. Jaffa had seen
us through our childhood in Calcutta and even softened
the heart of our stern European nanny. Like many Calcutta
businessmen my father realised that independence was
inevitable, but thought that it had come too soon for India’s
good. He had always intended to return to England because
India was never home to the British. They came to India to
do business or build bridges, to rule or administer justice,
and then retired to Bognor Regis or Budleigh Salterton, to
Cheltenham or Chalfont St Giles. Staying on was very rare
and disapproved of. My grandfather, who was something
of a rogue, loved to tell us stories of Uncle Charlie, who had
gone up country and married a native woman. My more
orthodox grandmother would tell him off, saying: “Be quiet,
Bertie. You mustn’t tell the children about Charlie. You know
perfectly well he went jungly.” Going jungly or native was an
unforgivable crime in her book.
