History of Pakistan Independence Day
Pakistan was create. It\’s a rare occurrence in modern history. Formerly known as the Indian subcontinent, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh were once part of a single, massive landmass. Since the introduction and acceptance of Islam in the subcontinent. The peace has been disturbed by clashes and Hindu oppression of Muslims. However, the Muslim minority was protecte after the War of Independence in 1857. With the help of intellectual thought and philosophies.
All-India Muslim League
While the odds were against the Muslism community, they realize their dreams of freedom through courage and faith. As of 1906, the All-India Muslim League was forme. On October 1, the first delegation of 36 Muslim leaders presented their demand for a separate state for Muslims to the viceroy of India in Simla.
But for one man\’s superhuman efforts and struggl. The concept of Pakistan and the liberation of Muslims would have remained a pipe dream instead of becoming a reality. So lawyer and politician Muhammad Ali Jinnah became known as the father of Pakistan. Until Pakistan\’s independence, Jinnah was the leader of the All-India Muslim League (AIML).
Allama Muhammad Iqbal
Allama Muhammad Iqbal was another visionary who pushe the idea of Muslims being separate from India to the forefront of public consciousness. Iqbal proposed the idea in his address to the nation on December 29, 1930, in Allahabad. The Allahabad Address is now considere a historical milestone in the field of public policy. \’Pakistan\’ was first used in a 1933 pamphlet called \”Now Or Never.\”
It was a momentous occasion in human history. Muslim leaders from all over the country attende the meeting, and the centuries-old struggle of Muslims for sovereignty and freedom was finally resolve. British Prime Minister Clement Attlee announced on February 20, 1947, that India would be granted complete self-government by June 1948. The last viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten, released the \”June Plan\” after consulting with the British government and Congress leaders on several occasions.
According to Mountbatten, India\’s Congress and the Muslim League endorsed the plan he proposed. As a result, British Parliament passed India\’s Independence Act in July 1947. On July 20, Pakistan and India each had their provisional governments in place. Finally, on August 14, 1947, British India was divided into India and Pakistan, resulting in two new countries.
There was a lot of bloodshed and carnage on the partition. In response to the idea of a Muslim nation, Hindu brutality increased, and Jinnah and the rest of the Muslim leaders faced fierce opposition. Lineages and families were destroye, and tales of partitions are still being collecte and archived to this very day.\”
Your temples are at your disposal, and you\’re free to visit them whenever you want. Your mosques or any other places of worship in Pakistan are open to you. Religion, caste, and creed don\’t matter to the state.\” ― Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
