Q.11 Describe the “Allahabad Address” A.D. 1930 of Allama Iqbal

Allahabad Address” A.D. 1930 of Allama Iqbal:

The failure of the Khilafat Movement and of the Simon Commission and the designs of the Hindu leaders, as revealed by the Nehru Report, convinced some Muslim leaders that the Muslims of India would not be safe without a separate homeland for theme selves in the South Asiar. sub-continent. Dr. Sir Muhammad Iqbal was the first Muslim leader of express this idea in very clear terms in his Presidential Address at the annual session of the All-India Muslim League, held at Allahabad in V.P. on 29t” December, 1930. First of all, he criticized the Hindu domination over the minority principle of rule by the majority was accepted in the conditions prevailing in India, the Hindu majority would always dominate over the Muslim minority, for their religions could not be changed without destroying the separate nature of the Muslim religion, culture, traditions, etc. The distinct religion, culture, and traditions could be safeguarded only if the

Muslims of the regions where they were in majority could be separated from the Hindu majority regions. He said in his Address:

“I would like to see the Punjab. North-West Frontier Province Sind and Baiochistan amalgamated into It single stat,. S,lf-!overnment within the Britis Empire, or without tit.: British Empire, the [ormation
oJf a consdidated Nor~h-W,st Indift MusliM state appears to mt to be the final tkstiny of the Mus!:ms, at least of North-West India

This was Allama Iqbal’s idea of the separate- homeland for the Indian Muslims, which soon made Q.uaid-e-Azam to put forth his theory of two nations, on the basis of which he led ti.e movement for the establishment of Pakistan, as first demanded in the historic Lahore Resolutjon, Allama Iqbal had mentally prepared the Muslims for a brighter future through his Intellectual frame-work. Altb augh he did not use the word “Pakistan” in his address but it was for the first time that the sole representacive party of the India Muslims the Muslim League became instrument for the presentation of the concept of a .•eparate homeland. Although there w~re people before him who advocated partition but Iqbal felt the need for a separation MnHm homeland in a larger perspective. The address is an it-.:.portant historical document propounding concept of a state which should be an embodiment of the Islamic values extinction of social distinctions. Thus would be social justice in that state. Iqbal not only gave the Indian Muslims a target but also pointed out to them the- best leadership for them. He presented Islam as a dynamic force which can liberate the human mind from the limitations of race or territorial nationalism

Q.17 Define State and describe the elements of an Islamic state.


A group of people which ace gathered in a particular region and is free from external actions, with its own government which has all related powers is called state.
(i) According to Gilchrist, the state is moral reality which is established when people arc -inclined to constitute a population in a certain region with its government having all powers.
(ii) According to Garner, state is a group of people which have a population and live constantly in a specific region and it has an organized government free from the effects of all external factors.

Essential Elements of the state:

The essential elements of the state are Following.
(i) Population
(ii) Territory
(iii) Government
(iv) Sovereignty


Population is an essential element of the state and the concept of the state is not possible without population. According to Plato, the state is not produced from a tree or from a rock but is formed by individuals. China and India are the states with large population. Plato gave an opinion that a state is constituted by the population five thousand and forty people. According to Aristotle the population of ten thousands to one million is necessary for the fonnation of a state. In modern period Rousseau also·suppo”it the concept of less population in a state, according to him, the population of ten thousand people is enough for a state. In modern states. the population is in millions.


Territory is the second physical element of the state. It is necessary for the constitution of state that the population should stay constantly on a specific region, the wandering people can not constitute a state. In states. when the demarcation of is made then military defence, international relations and other legal affairs are produced.


The third essential element of the state is government. All the affairs of the state are run through the government. The governmcnt enforces laws and establish a balance between the rights and duties. Legislative Executive and Judiciary are the three sections of the government. A state is not established when the unity is not gained. Legislature makes Jaws for the country, the executive enforces the laws and the judiciary makes decisions according to these laws


Sovereignty is the fourth essential clement of the state. Sovereignty makes the states distinctive from all other institutions. Due to this the state becomes authoritive internally and externally. Internal Sovereignty means the Jaw of the state which is applicable within the geographical limits of the state though the powers of the government have been distributed among central government and its institutions but each institution uses its powers in the name of the state. External Sovereignty shows the liberty of the state from external factors. The American states are not called as True States because these states are bounded with the rules of the central government in many ways. The Sub-Continent before partition in 1947 was not an actual state though it has other three characteristics, when the Sovereignty was given to two states then two Sovereignty states Pakistan and India were established. Territory is the body of a state. government is its brain. population is its organs and Sovereignty is its soul. As the body becomes dead without soul. the state comes to an end with the separation of Sovereignty

Q.18 Describe the role played by the “Two Nation Theory” in the creation of Pakistan.

Role Of Two-Nation Theory In The creation Of Pakistan.

A collection of principles, concepts and ideas for life on which a nation develops its civilization and traditions is called Ideology. It is that plan.of aenon of civilization and politics and sociaI life which becomes the common Ideal of a nation on the basis of the facts and events.


The theory’ which was developed in the Sub continent on the basis of circumstances and the events in which the arguments were made for the presence of two great nations in the Sub-Continent is called Two Nation Theory. According to this theory, the Hindus and the Muslims are the two big nations in the Sub-Continent which have a lot of differences in their religion, civilization, political views, social behaviour, culture and traditions. These two nations could not form a uniry in culture or political backgrounds.

The explanation of the Two Nation Theory can be cleared on taking the comparative review of the following:
(1) Islamic Ideology
(2) Ideology of the Holy Quran
(3) Ideology of Sir Syed Ahmed Khm
(4) Ideology of AIlama Iqbal
(5) Ideology of the Hindus
(6) Ideology of Quaid-e-Azam

Islamic Idoology:

Islam has its own philosophy of life which is based on moral values,
social laws and metaphysical conditions. In Islam, there is a comprehensive system of prayers and the philosophy of prayer which unites the followers in form of a nation. Due to this the Muslims of the Sub-Continent were also the follower of Islamic Ideology and they had a separate identity which could not combine with any other nation. This Ideology had provided them the principles of life.

Idoology Of The Holu Quran:

In the religious book of the Muslims the Holy Quran gave them a separate position on the basis of the philosophy of life, social setup, political and social outlooks. In the Holy Quran, there is a lesson of a certain procedure of prayer, the laws of economical system and inheritance of the property. Thus the life of the Muslims in the Sub-Continent was based on the Islamic creeds, therefore they appeared as a leading nation in South Asia.

Idoology of Sir syed Ahmad Khan:

Sir Syed Ahmed Khan was the fiut Muslims leader in the Sub-Continent who used the word ‘Nation” for the Muslims in the Sub-Continent. After the war of independence in 1857, the Muslims faced the cruelty and insolence of the white imperialism in South Asia, then Hindus also included with the British. Thus the Muslims were left behind in- education, politics, trade and in every field of life. In these circumstances Sir Syed Ahmed Khan advised the Muslims to establish their separate idauity so that they could carry on the struggle for the preservence of their cultnre aDd concepts in form of a nation: Thus the Muslims of the Sub-Continent started to develop their political concept and in the formation of theic own social laws as a nation in the Sub-Continent.

Idoology of Allama Iqbal:

Allama Iqbal produced a conapt of unity ~ the Muslims through his national poetry. He made realized the Muslims about the strer:gth of the (PJipjAlL HI! also made the Muslims realized their separate identity on the basis of the Ideology of life and social setup. Due to the efforts of AIlama Iqbal, a concept of nationality was developed among the Muslims

Idoology of Hindus:

The Hindus established a theory on the basis of Hindu nationality and it was founded according to the state of India. According to this theory, the every individual who is the citizen of India will be taken as Hindu, and there is only one nation is present in India not two and this one nation is “The Hindu Nation’. Pandat Javahir Lal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi .;vere great leaders of the Hindus. Pandat Nehru made a claim, that there were only two powers in India one was the Congress and other was the dominated party of the British. Mahatma Gandhi favouted the nationalism of the Hindus and said that India is a cow mother which could not be divided into two parts

Idoology Of Quaid-e-Azam:

Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali jinnah presented a separate identity of the Muslims in accordance with the Islamic Ideology of life. He replied openly the challenge of the Hindu leader Pandat Nehru and said there is a -third power was also present in India except the two powers and the third power was the Muslims. He proved with arguments that the Muslin!s in the Sub-Continent was a separate nation from the Hindus on the basis their culture. civilization. dress and history.


Sir Syed Ahmed Khan was the first Muslims leader in the Sub-Continent who used the word “Nation” for the Muslin1Sof South Asia. Mter Sir Syed Ahmed Khan a number of Muslim leaders of the Sub-Continent like Abdul Halirn Sharar. Maulana Muhammad Ali Jauhar. Chaudhry Rahmat AIi. Allama Iqbal, Liaquat Ali Khan and Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah also declared that the Muslims were a separate nation. The British were very much uncomfortable with the Hindu Muslim controversy and wanted a political settlement of the problem. In order to provide a platform to the people to express their feelings, a political party named “Indian National Congress” was established by an English man Allan Octavian Hume (A.O. Hume) in 1885. In the beginning the Muslims also joined this party but the Hindus joined this party in large numbers and soon it become a party of the Hindus. In the result of this circumstance, the Muslims also formed a separate political party for them named “All India Muslim League


There is a great importance of Two Nation Theory in the establishment of Pakistan but it is also said that this theory provided the foundation for the establishment of Pakistan. The Muslims were appeared as a nation in the Sub-Continent on the basis of this Two Nation Theory and they started struggle for their separate homeland. The importance of Two Nation Theory can be explained for the establishment of Pakistan as following

Q.20 When and why did the “All India Muslin. League” came
into being? Explain.
Foundation of the Muslim League:
The events of the Partition of Bengal convinced the Muslims that their rights and interests could not be safe guarde without a political party. The British government declared tha they would introduce new political and constitutional reforms in India. In such conditions, a political party of the Indian Muslims was all the more necessary. The Indian National Congress could not -be expected to defend Muslim interests. Conseqnent ly, several Muslim leaders, like Nawab Saleemullah of Dacca, the Agha Khan, Nawab Viqar-ul-Mulk and others, assembled at Dacca on 3th of December, 1906, under the chairmanship of Nawab Viqar-ul-Mulk to attend the All-India Muhammadan Educational Conference. They decided to form a separate political party to represent Muslim interests. It was named All-India Muslim League. Its aims ~h:.l were.

(i) to create a sense of loyalty among Muslims for British Government.
(ii) to safeguard the political rights and welfare of the Indian Muslims.
(iii) to present their demands before the British Government, and
(iv) to check the growth of harmful ideas among the Muslims

The formation of the Muslim League evoked mixed feelings. “The Englishman: Through it would provide an effective answer to the Congress, as well as afford an avenue for the pu1:’k’.\tion of Muhammadan aspirations. On the century, The BensaJes-, criticized the league and its organizers and predicted that “it,-will, if it seeks to fulfill its mission, fraternize with the Congress, and eventually coalesce with it. If not, it will go the way of the patriotic Association of the late Sir Syed Ahmad.” The League held its first annual session at Karachi on December 29-30, December, 1907. Though the Indian Muslims had now a political party of their own, it did -not, however, become a dynamic force in their national life for the next twenty i~ars. This was mainly due to the weak leadership of the League, It was only when Moharr.mad Ali Jinnah in 1936 assumed the leadership of the Mu~lim League that it became a dynamic: national organization of the Muslims.

Several hundred thousands of wounded destitute and hungry people arrived daily into Pakistan. Food, shelter, medicines, permanent settlement and employment of these refugees had to be required bringing further constraint on resources.

(v) Administrative problems:
There was 110 central government at the time of the establishment of Pakistan, the resources were very short even many difficulties were present to manage a common government office. Many offices of the central government were established in barracks due to the shortage of accommodation.
