The Muslims expressed their resentment through the press and warned the British government of the grave consequences of helping the Balkan states. In November 1912, when the Prince of Wales visited India at that time the Muslims as a protest against the British policy towards the Turks, boycotted the functions held to welcome him. Nothing less than forty thousand Muslims were sent to jail, several lawyers boycotted the law courts, hundreds of students gave up their studies, hundreds resigned from the government services and over a thousand people were killed in Malabar (Ahmad, 2005). On 4 August 1914, the World War 1 was broke out. At that time the Muslims leaders were once again met at Delhi (India) and decided to send a telegram for Sultan of Turkey not to join the war. However, on 4 November 1914, Turkey joined Germany in the war against the Allies. Henceforth, the plight of Turkey remained the main cause of anxiety for the Muslims of south Asia and they tried to give Turkey all possible help. The effect of the World War 1, in which the Ottomans found themselves on the side of the central powers, was the final integration of the Turkish Empire and the division of its territories as spoils of war between the victors-the British and the French. In June 1916 Sharif Hussain revolted against the sultan and seized power in Hejaz. At that time the Muslims of British India considered this rebellion a British engineered stab in the back of the Millat. Thus All India Muslim League passed a resolution and condemning the outrageous conduct of Shrief Hussain. The Muslims of British India gave enthusiastic support to the Turks (Ahmad, 2005). After the Turkish defeat in World War I, the Indian Muslims tried their level best that the spiritual and territorial value of Turkish Sultan should remain unabridged. Till the mid of 1920, anti British feelings were tenser among the Indian Muslims then other Indian subjects. In the result of these burning feelings Khilafat Movement was launched in India to preserve the Turkish Khilafat.(Burke, 1973)>GET ANSWER
