Few years later as Hindus were well educated as compare to the Muslims so for the protection their own rights they made their party namely "Congress" which used to consist of pure Hindu community party so that thing frightened to the Sir Syed Ahmed khan because he thought if the Muslims will join the congress that will also give them huge loss because they give the first priority to save first their rights so he decided what may come I should keep the Muslims away from that party and he restrained the Muslims for joining congress.
As he was British servant so he was also truly sincere with Britishers but he was also well-wisher of Muslims too so in that situation he started a "revolt moment” people thought that Muslims are betraying with britishers and they are giving the bamboozle to them but he illustrates that it is the moment to protect the rights of Muslims nothing else.
