British rule in India began in 1858 when the East India Company handed over powers to Queen Victoria after the Revolt of 1857. The Revolt of 1857 marked the first uprising against foreign rule on Indian soil. Inspired by this, many campaigns were launched by the freedom fighters of the country to get the country’s independence. To achieve this independence many movements were started such as non-cooperation movement by Mahatma Gandhi, Quit India movement led by Congress, Indian National Army movement led by Subhash Chandra Bose and many others. As a joint result of the country’s freedom fighters, the British were forced to declare India’s independence. However, before independence, the country split into two nations, called the Partition of India, and a new nation, Pakistan, was formed.
