N.W.F.P

The Province of N.W.F.P. was very important because of the fact that Congress had gained a strong foothold in the political affairs of this province. In 1927 the Muslim League had demanded that constitutional reforms should be introduced in the province. In 1946 the Congress, with the assistance of some local people and some nationalist Ulema, conspired to form a Congress ministry in the province. The Congress ministry was formed in spite of the best efforts of the Muslim League. It was the most critical period of the freedom movement as the pro-Pakistan element was oppressed by the Government. False cases were initiated against freedom-fighters who were put into the jails to suffer the most inhuman torture.

Congress through its Muslim members did its best to curb the freedom movement in N.W.F.P. At this critical juncture the religious leaders, Ulema and Mashaikh came forward with their spiritual strength to guide the people of  N.W.F.P.  Among these selfless leaders, Pir Sahib of Manki Sharif played the most important role. He along with other Ulema undertook tours of the province to quell the Congress influence. They were able to bring the scattered people together on the Muslim League platform.
