The Pakistan Movement did not start abruptly. It grew out of necessity, slowly and gradually. Muslims of India were surrounded by the inimical alien rulers and well organized Hindus.

The British had not forgotten the war of independence waged by the Muslims against them. The History of Pakistan tells us that Hindus had never forgiven the Muslims for having ruled India for centuries. Therefore, both the communities conspired against the Muslims to turn them into a poor, helpless and ineffective minority.

In the History of Pakistan an annual meeting of the Muslims League which was held at Allahabd in 1930 was presided over by Allama Iqbal who in his presidential address said the N.W.F.P. Punjab, Sindh and Balochistan should be combined in one state. Allama Iqbal further said that there was no way out; it was destined to become an independent state because this was the only way by which Muslims could live an honorable life. They must have a homeland so that they could preserve their culture, civilization and modes of worship. Thus a forceful demand was put forward the imagination of the Muslims who started working hard for the preservation of their rights and ultimate independence.

Muslim worked day and night to achieve the goal of Pakistan and the supervision of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. To attain this great purpose Muslims sacrificed their lives. Their efforts became fruitful and Pakistan became the first country on the world by the name of religion.

On the 14th of August, 1947 the sub-continent was divided into two parts, Pakistan and Bharat. Lord Mountbatten came to Karachi and transferred the power to Pakistan. Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was appointed as the first Governor-General in the History of Pakistan. Acting on the golden principle of unity, faith and discipline, the Muslims established a true and everlasting Muslim State of which we are all so proud.
