Mahmud al-Hasan also known as Mahmud Hasan was a Deobandi Sunni Muslim scholar who was active against British rule in India. For his efforts and scholarship he was given the title "Shaykh al-Hind" ("Shaykh of India") by the Central Khilafat Committee.
Although focused on his work at the school, Maulana Mahmud al-Hasan developed an interest in the political environment of British India and the world. When the Ottoman Empire entered World War I against the British Empire, Muslims across the world were concerned of the future of the Sultan of Ottoman Empire, who was the caliph of Islam and spiritual leader of the global Muslim community. Known as the Khilafat struggle, its leaders Mohammad Ali and Shaukat Ali organised protests across the country (see: partitioning of the Ottoman Empire).
