In Delhi, during the same period, Moulana Fazl-e-Haq Khairabadi who was an influential Moulvi, had addressed a congregation of Muslims in Jamia Masjid and gave a Fatwa (religious decree) to fight the British. When the revolt against British in Delhi was defeated, one of the British officers wrote Hundreds of Ulema were blown by cannons while thousands were hanged and others deported to Andaman Island. Among the first batch of persons to arrive at the Andaman were well-known Moulvis like Mufti Mazhar Kareem of Delhi and Munshi Inayat Ahamed of Lucknow.

Maulana Khairabadi. He was joined by many theologians who bravely fought against British and were hanged in the open in Delhi. It's sad that our historians have never given them their due as the earliest freedom fighters, so post-Independent generation doesn't know about their sacrifice.Our history has recorded much less valient fights against British and has totally ignored them. Very sad indeed !
