This was another reason of displeasure among the feudalsts of Ayodhya. Under the leadership of the adopted and exiled son of the ex-Nawab, Oazed Ali, the feudals ( both Hindu and Muslim) became united.All the traders of Bengal along with the Armenians of Calcutta and the soldiers of Ayodhya supported Oazed Ali. He also took the support of the leaders of Rohila, King of Maratha of Gwalior. He sent representative to Jaman Shah of Afghanisthan requesting him to attack India (British). With the same intention he signed a treaty with French. But The British was curious about his behaviour and asked him to go to Calcutta.Oazed Ali refused it and revolted which was unplanned and immature. Very easily British subdued the revolt and Oazed Ali was sent Calcutta..
