It was consequently banned, following which he started a new journal, Al-Balagh. He published many works, criticizing the British rule and advocating self-rule for India. It was as a leader of the Khilafat movement that he became close to Mahatma Gandhi. He was elected Congress President for the second time and presided over several annual sessions. He led all negotiations, with the British government, during the crucial phase of transfer of power. He became the youngest President of the Indian National Congress. He always supported the cause of Hindu-Muslim unity and staunchly opposed the demand for a separate Muslim state of Pakistan.

He was honoured with `Bharat Ratna`, posthumously.
