Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four religions—Hinduism (Hinduism in India), Buddhism (History of Buddhism in India), Jainism (Jainism in India), and Sikhism (Sikhism in India)—originated here, whereas Judaism, Zoroastrianism (Parsi), Christianity (Christianity in India), and Islam (Islam in India) arrived in the 1st millennium CE (Common Era) and also helped shape the region's diverse culture (Culture of India). Gradually annexed by and brought under the administration of the British East India Company (Company rule in India) from the early 18th century and administered directly by the United Kingdom (British Raj) after Indian Rebellion of 1857, India became an independent nation in 1947 after a struggle for independence (Indian independence movement) that was marked by non-violent resistance led by Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi).
