Holy and Sin united Hindus and Muslims against the British

 In 1857 the British brought the long-range rifles, "Enfield" to equip the Indian army. They did not take into account possible problems with animal fat (bovine and porcine), which is used to lubricate the rifle and cartridges impregnated cardboard. After all, for Hindus the cow is a sacred animal, and sin for Muslims to touch pigs. In the army there were those, and others, and each group has decided that the British are not exactly to their religion. Hindus and Muslims joined together and organized a revolt, which resulted in the deaths of many, both military and civilians from England.
