    The statement is false. Sir Syed Ahmed Khan's Aligarh Movement did not start the War of Independence. The Aligarh Movement was a socio-political reform movement initiated by Sir Syed Ahmed Khan in the late 19th century.

This religious insult sparked widespread outrage and led to a significant uprising against British rule, known as the War of Independence in 1857.

It was a diverse organization that included members from various religious and ethnic backgrounds, including Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, and others. The party aimed to represent the interests and aspirations of all Indians, regardless of their religious affiliations. Therefore, the statement that the Congress consisted of only Hindu members is incorrect.

It called for the creation of independent states for Muslims in the regions where they were a minority.

    B. British became friendlier with the Indians
    Explanation
    After the War of Independence in 1857, the British became friendlier with the Indians. This can be attributed to their realization that harsh policies and mistrust towards the Indians had contributed to the revolt. In order to prevent future uprisings, the British adopted a more conciliatory approach towards the Indians, which included granting more rights and privileges to the Indian population. This shift in attitude aimed to create a sense of loyalty and cooperation among the Indians, thereby reducing the likelihood of further rebellions.

Allama Iqbal, a prominent philosopher, poet, and politician, was indeed a member of the All India Muslim League. He played a significant role in shaping the ideology of the league and advocating for the rights of Muslims in British India. Iqbal's famous Allahabad Address in 1930 is considered a significant milestone in the demand for a separate homeland for Muslims, which eventually led to the creation of Pakistan.

    The problem with the Congress was that there was a Hindu majority but a Muslim minority. This suggests that the Congress party had a larger number of Hindu members compared to Muslim members. This could have led to imbalances in representation and decision-making within the party, potentially causing issues related to minority rights and inclusivity.
