The confederates now became the master of the entire city of Basra. The pro-Ali group evacuated the city, and those who remained in the city recognized the authority of the confederates. Supreme authority vested in Ayesha and Talha and Zubair acted as her Ministers. The Baitul-Mal was seized, and the men of the pro-confederate group who had suffered loss of life or property were duly compensated. Ayesha wrote a letter to Muawiyah in Syria informing him how the confederates had taken vengeance for the blood of Othman. He was advised to undertake campaigns on similar lines to take vengeance for the blood of Othman.
