The ideology of the League, he said, is based on the fundamental principle that Muslim India is an independent nationality. Any attempt to get them to merge their nationality or political identity or entity will not only be resisted but, in my opinion, it will be futile for anyone to tempt it. We are determined, and let there be no mistake about it, to establish the status of an independent nation and an independent State in this sub-continent.
