The Indigo revolt (or Nilbidraha) is a peasant movement and subsequent uprising of indigo farmers against the indigo planters that arose in Bengal in 1859. The back stage of the revolt goes back half a century when the indigo plantation act was established. In February–March 1859 the farmers refused to sow a single seedling of indigo plant. The strength of the farmers' resolutions were dramatically stronger than anticipated from a community victimized by brutal treatment for about half a century.

Most importantly it was a revolt of both the major religious groups of farmers in Bengal, notably a farmer Haji Molla of Chandpore (Thana - Hardi) said that he would "rather beg than sow indigo". The farmers were in no possession of any types of arms, it was totally a non-violent resistance. more . . .
