Expert Answer
  • In 1878, the Arms Act was passed by the British Government. According to this Act, no Indian could possess weapons without a valid licence. However, the Europeans and Anglo Indians were allowed to keep arms without a licence. This caused resentment among the Indians.
  • The Vernacular Press Act was passed in 1878 which empowered the Government to confiscate newspapers if they print anything against the British Government. 
  • The Ilbert bill was passed in 1883 by Lord Ripon. This bill sought to create political equality as now the Europeans or the British citizens could be tried by Indian judges. However, because of vehement protests by the Europeans, the bill was withdrawn. This enraged the Indians and they began to feel the
    need for organising themselves.
  • The Indians were illtreated by the British. Economically, India was exploited and its people were becoming poor as the British were draining the Indian wealth. 
  • The introduction of Western education made the Indians aware of the principles of democracy, liberty, rights and freedom. Thus, the Indians started demanding these from the British. The spread of the English language enabled the people to share nationalistic ideas from different parts of the country.
  • Press also played a role in spreading nationalist ideas among the people. The Bengali, The Hindu and newspapers in regional languages inspired people to oppose the exploitative policies of the British.
