Sir Sayyid Ahmed Kahn's History of the Bijnor Rebellion, Translated with Notes and Introduction. South Asia Series, Occasional Paper No. 17.
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Asian Studies Center.
The Bijnor Rebellion of 1857 was a revolt of the Muslim minority in the Bijnor district of India against the British East India Company and Hindu loyalists. Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan was an Indian Muslim serving the British Company. His account of the events of 1857 is the only one produced by an Indian who both participated in and analyzed the revolt. The account is comprised of three works composed during 1857-1858: History of the Revolt in the District of Bijnor; Causes for the Revolt of India; and Prayer for Peace at Moradabad. A letter Sir Sayyid wrote to Sir John Kaye in 1869 is a fourth pertinent document. This volume is a compilation of the four historical works translated into English. An introduciton that provides the background of Sir Sayyid precedes the works. (ND)
