Khudai-Khidmatgar was basically a social movement that was initiated by Badshah Khan in Pakhtun dominated areas. The purpose of this movement was to bring reform in the Pakhtun society. As it is known to every single individual that the Pakhtun follow their own code of life also called Pushtunwali in their own set up that consist on Jirga (council), Melmastia (hospitality), Badal (revenge), and Nanawaty (to give security to some one). Due to some unchangeable principles of Pushtunwali, the Pakhtun society was entangled in endless tribal feuds. The reason was obvious that the Pakhtuns were following the already made stereotypes, so in this struggle the Khudai-Khidmatgar tried there best to eliminate the concept of deep rooted stereotypes from the Pashtoon society on the bases of social-cultural reforms and educational network. This would help them to put the Pashtoon society on the path of development.
This movement was fundamentally based on two things, firstly, to serve the humanity by focusing on idioms like education for all, encouraging poetry and music and literature and to eradicate the vicious roots of violence among Pashtoons. As for as the connotation of Khudai- Khidmatgar is concerned, it mean servants of God. But as God needs no service and help, so by serving God mean to serve the humanity. Similarly, the non violence become the base of the Khudai-Khidmatgar movement for a purpose that the Pashtoon society was already dominated by tribal feuds as discussed earlier .So to demolish this curse from the Pashtoon society and to unite them under the single platform. The Khudai-Khidmatgar started the idea of non violence. This would basically help them to show a united front against the British imperial designs. With the passage of time this social movement was transformed into a political movement. This movement had and also has a deep influence on the Pashtoon society.
Education: In those days the people of NWFP (KPK) was in-fact groping in the dark. Neither the Government Organizations had any arrangement for the education. If any school was established in a village, the Mullaahs allowed non to go to schools. Therefore under the patronage of Haji Sahib Turangzai A.G.K. and his colleagues founded a “Dar-ul-ulum” which the British deputy commissioner equated with a gun by which AGK would sooner or later hit London. The first school was opened by AGK in Utmanzai during 1910 and similar schools were opened in different villages. The ultimate objective of the movement was to prepare the people for a rebel against the British Government. For the education and training of such individuals an Azad Islami High School was established in 1921. Emphasis was also given to the women education.
