The Niš rebellion (Serbian language:Нишка буна); Bulgarian language:Нишко въстание ) was a short-lived Christian uprising (5–26 April 1841) that broke out in the Ottoman nahiya (sub-districts) of Niš, Pirot, Vranje and Toplica, led by Miloje Jovanović and Nikola Srndaković-Srndak. The revolt emerged in an ethnic border area with mixed Serbian and Bulgarian ethnic sentiments.[1][2][3] It was part of that period's agrarian riots; it was mainly prompted by the appeals relating to the repeal of the spahee and the Ottoman government's readiness to attribute the ownership of the land to new Muslim holders.[4] It was a rapid, large and forceful rebellion, relatively unexpected to the Ottomans, with great combat successes.[5] During the rebellion, the Ottomans burnt down 120 villages in Niš and 104 in Leskovac.[4] 10–11,000 people fled to the Principality of Serbia; the Ottoman government appealed for their return.[6]
