Karar Dad-E-Pakistan 1940

(Syed Maqsood Ali Hashmi, )

The IRP (Islamic Republic of Pakistan) is greatest Islamic Country in the whole world. Who wants peace in global village. In this article I want to discussed the Lahore resolution which also known as the Pakistan Resolution 1940 I want to uncover the real-ity and main aspect of this resolution.

The people of Pakistan celebrate the 23rd of March, every year, with impressive zeal and enthusiasm, to memorialize the most outstanding achievement of sub-continent Muslims who passed the historic Pakistan Resolution on this day at Minto Park, Lahore in 1940.

The Lahore Pakistan Resolution also known as Karar Dad-e-Pakistan was indeed a landmark in the history for the Muslims of the sub-continent. Before this, the Muslims of sub-continent had no goal and no future in view and Muslim politics remained in the hands of the individuals with conflicting interests and inclinations. As soon as Lahore Resolution was passed by the Muslim League, the Hindu press started criticizing the Muslim League and declared this resolution as Pakistan Resolution. The personality of Moham-mad Ali Jinnah was also criticized by the Hindus and their promi-nent leaders. Mohammad Ali Jinnah got nationwide popularity after Lahore Resolution, because the Muslims of India had a lot of expectations from him and he was the only source of inspiration for the Muslims.

The All India Muslim League played a vital role in the crea-tion of Pakistan in the year 1940. Muslim league had become a stronger political party for the Muslims of Indo-Pak sub-continent, under which the Muslims were struggling for a separate homeland for them. The great leader of the Muslims, Mohammad Ali Jinnah by the time had become the lining symbol of Muslim unity and Muslim politics and the Muslims had so completely centred on him that he had become almost an institution in himself.

In the words of Quaid-i-Azam: “Hindus and the Muslims be-long to two different religions, philosophies, social customs and li-terature and religion. They neither inter-marry nor inter-dine and, indeed, they belong to two different civilizations that are based mainly on conflicting ideas and conceptions. Their concepts on life and of life are much different. It is quite clear that Hindus and Muslims derive their inspiration from different sources of history. They have different epics, different heroes and different epi-sodes…”

The resolution which was passed at the session reads: “No consti-tutional plan would be workable or acceptable to the Muslims un-less geographical contiguous units are demarcated into regions which should be so constituted with such territorial readjustments as may be necessary. That the areas in which the Muslims are nu-merically in majority as in the North-Western and Eastern zones of India should be grouped to constitute independent states in which the constituent units shall be autonomous and sovereign”.

The Resolution turned down the concept of United India and recommended the creation of an independent Muslim state consist-ing of Punjab, N. W. F. P (now Khyber Pakhtonkhwa), Sindh and Balochistan in the northwest, and Bengal and Assam in the north-east.

It further reads, “That adequate, effective and mandatory sa-feguards shall be specifically provided in the constitution for mi-norities in the units and in the regions for the protection of their re-ligious, cultural, economic, political, administrative and other rights of the minorities, with their consultation. Arrangements thus should be made for the security of Muslims where they were in a minority”. Pakistan Zinda Abad….
