The Khilafat movement (1919-1924) was an insurgency of Indian Muslims, aligned with Indian nationalism, in the years following World War I. Its goal was to force the British government to maintain the authority of the Ottoman Sultan as a caliph of Islam following the break-up of the Ottoman Empire at the end of the war.

the caliph sultan of turkey was looked upon by the muslims as their religious head. during the first world war when the safety and welfare of Turkey were threatened by the british thereby weaking the caliph's position,indian muslim adopted an aggressive anti british attitude .The Ali brothers Mohammad Ali and Shaukat Ali launched an anti british movement.
