What was the aim of the Wahabi movement?

The aim of the Wahabi movement was to overthrow the SIkhs in Punjab and by extension the British all over India and restore the lost glory of the erstwhile Muslim rulers of the subcontinent.

When the revolt of 1857 happened, the Wahabi movement turned into an armed struggle against the British, prompting them to carry out extensive military operations against the followers of the movement. By 1870, the movement was completely suppressed.
