How was the sepoy rebellion a clash of cultures?

the policy of westernization/ Anglicization is one of the big contributors to clash of the cultures. the British people forced the Indian people to become Anglican and to accept western society and systems. The final spark to the start of the Sepoy Rebellion/mutiny was when the British told the Indian people to bite of the end of a gun cartridge which was rumored to be greased with pig and cow fat (to Muslims pigs are unclean and to Hindus cows were sacred). they were forced to go against there own beliefs by doing that and thus the rebellion started.

In 1857 a growing Indian distrust of the British led to what?

The Indian sepoys began to distrust the British because of several events. They were trying to convert Hindus and Muslims to Christianity. The British were altering the length and terms of service in the army. The pension for soldiers was eliminated. The British began using tallow soaked ammunition cartridges.

Why was the Sepoy Rebellion a turning point in the history of India?

Who were the Indian soldiers who served in the British Indian army and rebelled in 1857?

The native Indian soldiers recruited by the East India Company were called "sepoys" (or the cavalry equivalent "sowar"). The rebellion by these soldiers was called the "Sepoy Mutiny" or "Indian Mutiny" of May, 1857. The 200,000 sepoys outnumbered British soldiers by five to one. After two sepoys were hanged for disobedience and more than 80 imprisoned, a general revolt by the sepoys and the populace broke out against British officers and citizens. The war was mainly fought in north central India, south of the cities of Meerut and Delhi. During 1857 and 1858, various Indian and Asian soldiers fought either with or against the British. The British ultimately prevailed, though the conflict and later reprisals killed hundreds of thousands among the native populace. The rebellion marked the beginning of a united India, and is officially referred to as the "First War of Independence".
