The Siege of Multan ended in Second Anglo-Sikh War

The Siege of Multan ended in Second Anglo-Sikh War
  • The Siege of Multan was a drawn-out challenge between the city and state of Multan and the British East India Company.
  • The attack kept going between 19 April 1848, when a rebellion in the city against a ruler forced by the East India Company encouraged the Second Anglo-Sikh War, and 22 January 1849, when the last protectors surrendered.
  • Multan had been caught and fused into the Sikh Empire of Ranjit Singh in 1818. In 1845, in spite of the fact that the populace was half Muslim, it was administered by a Hindu vassal, Dewan Mulraj.
  • In that year, the First Anglo-Sikh War broke out and was won by the British East India Company.
  • There was an uneasy peace for a long time, amid which Mulraj endeavored to keep up reasonable autonomy while being ostensibly subject toward the East India Company.
