The dilemma created by Hindi Urdu controversy sowed the seeds of dissension for each other in 1867. This controversy unfolded Indians loathsome nature for Muslims. This controversy made even moderate Muslims realize that two different nation could not run and live in the same country. Muslims and Hindu could not be friends with vast number of differences which include religious, cultural, social, language and so on.
The result of this Muslims like Sir Syed Ahmed Khan who were the strong believers of Hindu-Muslim unity could not with stand their belief anymore.

Alike Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, other national leaders raised their voices against unjust attitude towards Muslims. It gives bedrock to two nation theory.
