because people of Punjab always fought against mugals and proclaiming Bahadur Shah made them angry. There hatred against mughals was much wide than that for Britishers.

because they were loyalist. you have to understand that there was no nationalism back then. they were Punjabis and not Indians. they had nothing to do with revolt. they were doing job. they had no reason to mutiny. more interested in their livelihood. hate or no hate cant say but u can read about what Punjabis may have felt about this when u read about ghadar movement. all those slogans "angrezi sarkar ka katha chitha"
