In the most of the nineteenth century, the area consistingÂ Pakistan was ancientlyÂ a part of the British India Empire. Beginning their trade in South Asia in 17th century, the East India Company started ruling from 1757 when they were victorious in the Battle of Plassey.Â Â The Government of India Act 1858 led wayÂ to theÂ British CrownÂ assuming direct control over much of the Indian Subcontinent and this was all afterÂ the Indian Rebellion of 1857. In 1906 at Dhaka, All India Muhammadan Educational Conference founded All-India Muslim League,Â in the context of the situationsÂ that were generated over the division of Bengal in 1905 and the party visioned creating aÂ separate Muslim state.
Such as the Montagu-Chelmsford Reforms, the timeÂ Â after World War I was clearly noticeableÂ by British reforms, but the process of passing legislationÂ of the repressive Rowlatt Act wasÂ witnessed and Indian Activists called forÂ self-rule. Nationwide violence free movements of non-cooperation and civil disobedience were seen as the result of extensive spread Â of discontent of this period. In December 1930, Allama Iqbal introduced the idea for a separate religion-based state Â in his speech as the President of the Muslim League.Â Three years later, in the decision made by Choudhary Rahmant Ali , the name “Pakistan” as the name of a separate state was proposed.
In the 1940s, as the Indian independence movement gathered strength, powerful movementÂ of Muslim nationalismÂ directedÂ by the All-India Muslim League took place, of which Muhammad Ali Jinnah was the most importantÂ leader.Â In the Indian independence movement, being a political party, the Muslim League played a vitalÂ Â role during the 1940s to saveÂ the interests of the Muslim in British IndiaÂ and it developed into the driving force behind the creation of Pakistan as a Muslim state in the South Asia. From 22â€“24 March 1940, aÂ officialÂ political statement was presentedÂ known as the Lahore Resolution in time period ofÂ three-day widespreadÂ session of All-India Muslim LeagueÂ which summonedÂ on for the creation of an independent state for Muslims.
