Freedom Fighters

This is a listing of people who campaigned against foreign domination and cultural imposition on the Indian sub-continent. In India, such individuals are often referred to as freedom fighters.

Soon after the Europeans reached the Indian shores, with the arrival of Vasco da Gama in 1498 at Kappad shore at the port of Kozhikode in Keralam, segments of the indigenous population began intermittent rebellions against foreign powers and their cultural values.

Initially these revolts were by Arabs, Jews, China|Chinese traders, and local merchants as a rebellion against the monopolistic way of trading by Portugal|Portuguese. Later many of the revolts were over cultural clashes including religious beliefs, taxation, administrative power, etc. These revolts occurred against various Europeans powers, but mainly against Britain, the primary occupier.
