History of India

history and religion

The Indian subcontinent includes India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Civilization develops along Indus River. The major citied are Harappa and Mohenjo-daro. The Aryan Invasion came from Europe and Ruled India for hundreds of years. It also created modern Hinduism and established India’s caste system. It occurred during 1700-1300 BCE. Cultural diffusion brought religion and the caste system. During the Gupta Dynasty, Norther India reunited and Buddhism and Hinduism spread out. During the 1800's, Christian missionaries were sent to South Asia and brought Christianity.

colonial India

The British East India Company obtained trading rights from the Mughal Empire. When the Mughal Empire fell, India was divided by different cultures and languages. This made it difficult for Indians to unite and the British had superior weapons. The British also played the princes against one another. The British attempted to change India by introducing the western education system, introducing the British legal system, converting Indians to Christianity, and working to end the caste system. The Indian began to resent the British interference and they felt discriminated because they were not allowed to hold government jobs. Soon, India gained independence in 1947.
