The Muslim League represented only a small section of elite class.
Outside this limited number there were a good number of people in the Muslim population who aligned themselves with the mainstream of the national movement.
Instances are not very rare to show that important posts in the Congress organization were held by Muslims.
When the Muslim League was opposed to the Partition of Bengal (1905) there were many individual Mussalmans who lent their shoulders to the anti-Partition agitators.
Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan, etc. were important nationalist leaders. Thus it may be said that the Muslim League was not a monolithic organization.
