- Political Struggle:
Jinnah became active in politics in 1904 as an advocate of Hindu-Muslim unity and attain a good voice in Indian National Congress. He famously criticized Muslim League’s demand of Separate Electorates. Later he ensouled the Muslim League, which had become dis-functional in 1911, after the annulment of Partition of Bengal.
The year 1916 brings new hope to Muslims with a conclusion of Lucknow Pact under Jinnah’s presidency of the Muslim League, which decides the minority quota in provinces. In 1929, Jinnah came up with his famous 14 points in response to Nehru report, to propose a discrete manifesto for Muslim share in governing India.
During 1930s Jinnah entered the second phase of his political life, upon his return from England. He starts to speak of Islamic Symbols and marginalization of Muslims, quite often. He seems to have great influence of Iqbal on his personality, during that phase because his speeches often echoed the name of Iqbal. That influence became evident in the 1940 Resolution, which later came to reality in 1947, in the shape of Pakistan. Oh, it’s just unbelievable struggle.
