23rd March; the Lahore Resolution Day

Dear Editor:

A fleeting look at the history reveals that it was merely a four-day conference of Sind Muslim League between 8 to 11 October, 1938 which changed the minds and attitudes of the Muslims of British India. Another meeting was also kept on March 22, 1940 which claimed more than hundred thousand Muslims were gathered including a big chunk of women. However, the breaking of Czechoslovakia was Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s reference in his presidential speech.
Quaid wrote in his article Time and Tide:
” The members of the British Parliament, in spite of the experience of the past had not learnt from their form of government is totally unsuited to India.” He further depicted that a constitution must be evolved that recognizes that there are in India two nation, who must share the government of their common motherland.
Finally after the herculean efforts done by Quaid and Allama Iqbal, the Lahore resolution was passed for the division of India into two separate states. Moreover, the resolution was marked on Saturday, March 23, 1940. According, this resolution was presented by Sher-i-Bengal Maulvi A.K Fazlul Haq. Nonetheless, the resolution was aimed at the partition of two dominions, where the both nations can enjoy their full privileges of social, economical, political, cultural and religious activities. Indubitably, the resolution provided a new phase of life to the Muslims of British India. It improved the critical circumstances of the Muslims minority by distinguishing all walks of life in society.

Wajahat Abro.
