Expert Answer:

Social and religious reform movements had been there for a long time. However, it was not until the 19th century that they associated themselves with any political sentiment. The reformers and their movements came to be conjoined with a fledgling political movement in the 19th century. This political movement gradually transformed itself into a national movement with a strong nationalist sentiment which engulfed all regions of the country. Hence, even the reform movement acquired a nationalistic character and was seen as necessary for national political awakening.
