Solution

The correct option is D Lord Ellenborough
After the Revolt of 1857, the British began to suspect the loyalty of Muslims. The British felt that the Muslim community was harbouring grudges against them after they had snatched their kingdoms away from the Muslim rulers. Following the same, Lord Ellenborough, the Governor-General of India from 1842-1844 CE, famously said that "the Muslim race is fundamentally hostile to us and therefore, our true policy is to conciliate the Hindus".
