The British policy in India was divide and rule, i.e. dividing Hindus and Muslims ( see online ' History in the Service of Imperialism' by B.N. Pandey, and my article ' The Truth about Pakistan ' online and on my blog justicekatju.blogspot.in ). Whoever furthered that policy was objectively a British agent.
Setting up Universities on religious basis was part of the British policy of divide and rule, just like separate electorates created by the Minto-Morley 'Reforms',1909. A University is by definition something universal. How can it be Hindu or Muslim ? So those who set up AMU and BHU were objectively British agents ( whatever they may have regarded themselves subjectively, and whatever others may have regarded them ).
