History of Pakistan

The history of Pakistan or the history of Pakistan refers to the history of the region that separated from India on the occasion of the partition of India in 1947 and was called the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Before the partition of India, the region of present day Pakistan was part of the British Raj. Before that, the region was ruled by various local kings and various foreign powers at different times. In ancient times, this region has been part of several of the oldest kingdoms and some of the great civilizations of the Indian subcontinent. In the 18th century, the land became part of British India.

The political history of Pakistan begins with the establishment of the All India Muslim League in 1906. The purpose of establishing this party was to protect and represent the interests of Muslims living in India. On December 29, 1930, the philosopher and poet Dr. Sir Allama Muhammad Iqbal proposed an independent state for the Muslims of Southeast India. In the late 1930s, the Muslim League began to gain popularity. In 1933, its name was proposed by Chaudhry Rahmat Ali Gujjar and a sketch was drawn to draw a map of Pakistan by combining different regions. Muhammad Ali Jinnah presented the two-nation theory and The approval of the Lahore Resolution of 1940 by the Muslim League paved the way for the establishment of Pakistan. The Lahore Resolution demanded the establishment of independent states comprising the Muslim majority areas of British India. Finally, after a successful movement under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, independence was achieved from the British rule on 14 August 1947 and the partition of India took place.
