Sir Syed Ahmad Khan was a great benefactor of Muslims. At a time when Muslims of India were at their lowest ebb in all spheres of life he took on his shoulders the burden of their education. As he correctly saw that without education Muslims would not progress in any other sphere of life. It can be seen from this name that he was honoured for his services by the British by giving him the title of “Sir”. He was also given a mantle of honour for his services to the British Empire and a pension which was to last for three generations. The picture of Sir Syed shows him wearing with pride medals bestowed upon him by the British.
Our Sunni friends criticise Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad for supporting the British but say not a word about Sir Syed. How strange and how contrary to the verse of the Holy Quran which says : Let not the hatred of a people cause you to do injustice.
