In December, 1930 Dr. Muhammad Iqbal was invited to preside over the annual meeting of All India Muslim League at Allahabad. In his address, he openly opposed the idea of wielding together of Hindus and Muslims into one nation. He declared that the Muslims move to apply one constitution to both the Hindus and they would result in a civil war. He wanted to see the Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan and the N.W.F.P. a single state for the Muslims, so that they should live according to the teachings of Islam. We can say that Allama iqbal was the first thinker to give us the idea of a separate homeland for the Muslim of India i.e. separation of the subcontinent into two sovereign states. The Muslims soon realized the importance of the demand for two separate states. It was then adopted as the Pakistan Resolution in 1940.
