According to the Jagran website, the readership crested 55 million in 2014. There are 37 different editions, and the Jagran covers 11 different states in India. The “Dainik Jagran” newspaper in India has had controversy due to accusations that they allowed politicians to send them money in exchange for editorials and other pieces in the newspaper that showed these politicians in a positive light. Other newspapers like “Dainik Bhaskar,” “Dainik Hindustan” and “Hindustan Times” have been accused of this type of corruption as well. None of the papers admitted any wrongdoing, but several politicians have admitted purchasing special packages that gave them better coverage in the paper.

    What were some of the causes of the Sepoy Muntiny?

    A:

    The cause of the Sepoy Mutiny, also known as the Indian Rebellion of 1857, is often attributed to the incident which is believed to have sparked the uprising: the opposition by Hindu and Muslim soldiers in the British Army of Bengal, known as "sepoys," to the issue of ammunition for the new 1853 Enfield rifle that came pregreased in paper cartridges. The native soldiers were expected to bite off the ends of the ammunition's paper cartridge in order to load their rifles. Because the cartridges were pregreased with fat made from beef and pork fat, which are forbidden in the Hindu and the Muslim faiths respectively, the native soldiers felt that their British rulers were requiring them to act against their religious observances.
