Mahmud al-Hasan's endeavours won him the admiration not only of Muslims but also of Indians across the religious and political spectrum. He became an icon of the Indian independence movement, and was given the title of "Shaykh al-Hind" by the Central Khilafat Committee.[1]

Upon his release, Mahmud al-Hasan returned to India to find the nation on the verge of revolt over the Rowlatt Acts.[citation needed] Hasan issued a fatwa making it the duty of all Indian Muslims to support and participate with Mahatma Gandhi and the Indian National Congress, who had prescribed a policy of non-cooperation mass civil disobedience through non-violence.[1]

He laid the foundation stone of the Jamia Millia Islamia, a university founded by Indian nationalists
