He gave a detailed account oh the loyal services, had given and named various Muslims who had shown particular loyalty to the British. At the same time he called on the British to end their hostility towards the Muslims.

Sir syed was aware that the British knew very little about Islam. It was also true, that the Muslims in India knew very little about Christianity. He tried to over come this was writting “Tabyin_ul_ Kalam”i which he appointed out the similarlies between Islam and Christianity.
Both communities couldn’t work together. And he tried the provide awareness of the politics of Muslims. So that Muslims could also appear in the subcontinent and remove this state of trouble between them.
