The colonial era started in 17th century British stepped into India in 18th century as traders and ruled India almost between 1858 and 1947. Muslims had been ruling India for almost thousand years but Britain had been able to gain control over them. After Britain took control of India they made it British colony.

The subcontinent was initially controlled by East India Company, which set up number of factories and made India a traders post and proved the most powerful company that controlled India with its direct rule as the support of some Indian princes. India became a British colony in 1857 even as the power was transferred from East India Company to British crown. British not only spread out their rule in India but also in several countries in the world.
