The causes of the Sepoy rebellion were rumors were spread that the rifles were being greased with beef and pork fat. For Hindu soldiers, the cow is sacred. For Muslim soldiers, they can't touch pork. Also, Indian soldiers were required to fight in foreign lands. This angered the Hindu's because they would lose their caste if traveled overseas. The Sepoy Rebellion broke out in 1857. Indian revolt against British rule. British won.
