What was the main objective of Muslim League?
The chief aim of the league was to promote and secure civil rights for Muslims. The league was favored and encouraged by the British until the organization adopted self government for India as their goal in 1913. The several leaders and Mohammad Ali Jinnah called for Hindu-Muslim unity till the early 1940.
Why did the Muslim League join Congress?
Through the pact, the two parties agreed to allow representation to religious minorities in the provincial legislatures. The Muslim League leaders agreed to join the Congress movement demanding Indian autonomy. Scholars cite this as an example of a consociational practice in Indian politics.
Who opposed the partition of India?
The Hindu, Christian, Anglo-Indian, Parsi and Sikh communities were largely opposed to the partition of India (and its underlying two-nation theory), as were many Muslims (these were represented by the All India Azad Muslim Conference).
Who is a pioneer of two nation theory?
Thus, many Pakistanis describe modernist and reformist scholar Syed Ahmad Khan (1817–1898) as the architect of the two-nation theory.
