The above statement is true.
Mahatma Gandhi was never tired of preaching that Hindus should leave it to Muslims to protect the cow because they (the Hindus) had done everything they could to assist the Khilafat. As a result, fraternisation became widespread throughout the country. Those Hindus who did not believe in Mahatma Gandhi's policy of unity, as well as Muslims who did not trust the Hindus, appeared to have lost their influence for the time being and were largely inactive. Mahatma Gandhi's concept of unity, like all of his other ideas, was founded on the principle of Ahimsa, which teaches us not to cause mental or physical pain. He insisted that the Hindus, who were in the majority in the country, should assist the Muslims and never consider enforcing their rights through brute force but rather try to win the hearts of the minority community. Gandhiji saw the Khilafat Movement as an opportunity to unite Hindus and Muslims. He stated that the Congress's call for Hindu-Muslim unity "would be an empty phrase if Hindus remain distant from Muslims when their vital interests are at stake." In November 1919, Mahatma Gandhi was elected President of the All-India Khilafat Conference. He advised the Khilafat Committee to pursue a non-cooperation policy with the government.
