INDEPENDENCE MANIFESTO OF PAKISTAN: THE LAHORE RESOLUTION,1940

Abstract

Author(s): Davut ?AHBAZ

The Lahore Resolution declared by Indian Muslims on March 23, 1940 is assumed to be the basis for the establishment of Pakistan. With these decisions, Indian Muslims conveyed to the Hindu and British that they did not accept any suggestions other than establishing an independent Muslim state in the Indian Sub-Continent. The resolution set a definite goal for the Indian Muslims. Indian Muslims who embraced this bill, moved forward with purpose to achieve a separate state. The Lahore Resolution brought the whole Muslim nation under the banner of the All India Muslim League, chaired by Pakistan's founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Indian Muslims, who have suffered political and social collapse since the 17th century, became a nation that designed the political future of India after the Lahore Resolution was accepted by the British. Although the Lahore Resolution was welcomed by Indian Muslims and considered a declaration of independence, the reaction of Hindus, the Hindu Congress Party, and other anti-division groups was quite harsh. This manifesto of independence, whose main principles are based on the idea of division and the establishment of an independent Muslim country in the sub-continent, has created a deep concern among Hindus who adopt the theory of one nation and one state and these groups have declared the resolution unacceptable. Pakistan was established as an independent Muslim state on August 14, 1947, based on the political principles theorized by the Lahore Resolution.
