“The story of Pakistan, its struggle and its achievement, is the very story of great human ideals, struggling to survive in the face of great odds and difficulties.” Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah

– March 23, 1948

March 23 will always be one of the most significant dates in Pakistani history, because the Lahore Resolution was adopted by the All-India Muslim League after a three-day conference in Lahore (March 22—23, 1940). This was the first formal announcement of the move to demand for a separate Muslim homeland after the British ended their occupation of the sub-continent. The authorship of the resolution is attributed to Sir Zafarullah Khan. The specific demand for a separate demarcated territory with its own constitution was a game-changer in the struggle for a homeland, because after this, the demand extended to not one but two different countries.
