The ‘national consciousness’ gradually conveyed and developed in India during the British rule due to their policies. The economic, political and social transformation resulted in the domination of all classes of Indian people, thus giving rise to widespread dissatisfaction among the masses. The popular uprisings in different parts of the country strengthened the ‘national consciousness’ in their own way, which was ultimately channelized into a national movement. Muslim leadership contributed enormously to divergent phases of the Indian struggle for independence. They played a larger-than-life role and made significant sacrifices in this struggle for independence. This article focuses the contribution of Jamal Mohamed Sahib and Khaja Mian Rowthar in Indian Freedom Struggle.
