Muslims had always believed that Esa (as) was never technically hung on the cross (Salaboohoo). However, during British occupation, especially after the mutiny of 1857, the British wanted Muslims to give up hope for a savior (a messiah and mahdi). Thus, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan was their first agent. At the Aligarh College and through his magazine, “Tehzeeb-ul-Akhlaq”, he published alternative Muslim perspectives, written in plain language. It gave voice to the publisher’s religious, social, and reforming opinions, and is credited with establishing him as one of the fathers of Urdu fiction. The same journal was restarted by Syed Hamid Vice-chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University in 1981; and since then it is being published regularly. There is now a separate office of Tehzeeb-ul-Ikhlaq.
Nevertheless, in 1876, in Tehzeeb-ul-Ikhlaq, Moulví Chiragh Ali (1844-1895), was the first Muslim to ever claim that Esa (as) was actually hung on the cross. MGA was reading these magazines and copied almost all of the arguments. In the BA4 he began denying the miracles of Esa (As)..by 1891, he rejected everything that Esa (as) did and belittled him. By 1894, MGA began calling him an alcoholic and etc. By 1902, MGA was claiming to be greater than Esa (as)(naozobillah).
