Q. Who among the following led the “Narkelberia Uprising”?

[A] Titu Mir

[B] Shraddananda

[C] Narendranath Datta

[D] Wahab Ali

Answer: A

Explanation: Narkelberia Uprising: Mir Nithar Ali (1782-1831) or Titu Mir inspired the Muslim tenants in West Bengal to rise against landlords, mainly Hindu, who imposed a beard-tax on the Faraizis, and British indigo planters.

Often considered the first armed peasant uprising against the British, these revolts soon took on a religious hue. The revolt later merged into the Wahabi movement.
