The Muslim Students Federation sought the introduction of compulsory religious education for children of Muslim parents and students in all schools across India. It resolved that the That-e-Makkah be observed as "Muslim Students Day." The ranks of the organisation grew across India, but especially in the campus of the Aligarh Muslim University. It launched an aggressive campaign against the alleged non-Islamic crests of the University of Calcutta and the University of Nagpur, the Vidya Mandir scheme in the Central Provinces, the vibrant slogan of Vande Mataram and the public veneration shown to the tri-colour flag of Congress, criticising them as insults to Islam. In its meeting on May 6, 1938 at the Islamia College, Lahore the AIMSF working committee controversially resolved to condemn the song of Vande Mataram as un-Islamic. The committee also resolved to change Iqbal's poem Saare Jahan Se Achcha by replacing the word "Hindi" with Muslim and "Hindostan" with "Sara Jahan" to read "Muslim Hain Ham Watan Hain Sara Jahan Hamara" (We are Muslim and the whole world is ours). The Muslim Students Federation endorsed the Pakistan Resolution adopted by the Muslim League on March 23, 1940. The organisation would aggressively promote the creation of the Muslim state of Pakistan and helped the League in organising election campaigns in 1946. During the Direct Action Day campaign, the federation organised major strikes and protest rallies. It was also believed to be involved in organising communal violence and riots across India, leading to the deaths of tens of thousands of people.
