what is the blue rebellion?
it was the revolt faught by the ryots with the indigo planters.
The Indigo revolt was a peasant movement and subsequent uprising of indigo farmers against the indigo planters that arose in bengal in 1859. The back stage of the revolt goes back half a century when the indigo plantation act was established. After the courageous fight by the sepoy for independence in 1857 in February–March 1859 the farmers refused to sow a single seedling of indigo plant . The strength of the farmers ' resolutions were dramatically stronger than anticipated from a community victimized by brutal treatment for about half a century. Most importantly it was a revolt of both the major religious groups of farmers in bengal , notably a farmer Haji Molla of Nischindipur said that he would "rather beg than sow indigo". The farmers were in no possession of any types of arms, it was totally a nonviolent resistance.this movement was known as blue rebellion.
in 1859 the ryots attacked indigo factories armed with swords, spears, bows and arrows. that indigo rebellion is known as blue rebellion.
