Muslim Depiutation to Lord minto

The  Aligarh Movement continued to be very active force in Muslim politics even after the death of Sir Syed Ahmed ( (October 17, 1817 – March 27, 1898), and its leadership had passed to Nawab Mohsin-ul-Mulk  (Nawab Mohsin-ul-Mulk, Munir Nawaz Jang, Syed Mehdi Ali (Urdu: ﻧﻭﺍﺏ ﻣﺤﺴن ‌الملک, منير نواز جنگ, ﺳﻴﺩ ﻣﻫﺩﻯ ﻋﻠﻰ) (born 9 December 1837 — 16 October 1907) was a prominent Indian Muslim politician. He was a close friend of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan and was involved in the Aligarh Movement and was one of the founders of the All India Muslim League.)
He soon found an extensive scope for practical demonstration of the spirit behind the Aligarh movement.
In 1906, Morley announced in the house of Commons that the Viceroy, Lord Minto (He was succeeded by his eldest son, the second Earl. He was a diplomat and Whig politician and held office as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1835 to 1841 and as Lord Privy Seal from 1846 to 1852. Lord Minto was succeeded by his eldest son, the third Earl. He sat as a Liberal Member of Parliament for Hythe, Greenock and Clackmannanshire. On his death the titles passed to his son, the fourth Earl. He was a prominent colonial administrator and served as Governor General of Canada from 1898 to 1904 and as Viceroy of India from 1905 to 1910. As of 2010 the titles are held by his great-grandson (the titles having descended from father to son), the seventh Earl, who succeeded in 2005.), was aboutto appoint a small Committee to consider the question of extending the representative element in the Legislative Council. This naturally opened the Muslims the possibility of negotiating, in advance, with the Government  in order to safeguard their rights and interests in the new legislation.
