The Indian subcontinent was home to the urban Indus Valley Civilisation of the 3rd millennium BCE. In the following millennium, the oldest scriptures associated with Hinduism began to be composed. Social stratification, based on caste, emerged in the first millennium BCE, and Buddhism and Jainism arose. In the medieval era, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam arrived, and Sikhism emerged, all adding to the region’s diverse culture. The economy expanded in the 17th century in the Mughal Empire. In the mid-18th century to mid-19th century, the British conquered and consolidated their rule in the subcontinent untill they left in mid-20th century after a sustained non-violent nationalist movement under Mahatma Gandhi and some other militant nationalist movements.
