Thus, the formal beginning of Tehreek-e-Pakistan can be termed as the meeting of March 23, 1940, but its real beginning is from this point in history when Muslims in India joined the pro-Hindu organization Congress. In 1930, Allama Iqbal, addressing the 21st annual meeting of the Muslim League in Allahabad, formally introduced the idea of a separate Muslim state in the North Maghreb of the subcontinent.
Chaudhry Rehmat Ali named this concept Pakistan in 1933. The Sindh Muslim League at its annual meeting in 1938 passed a resolution in favor of the partition of the subcontinent. Besides, Quaid-e-Azam had also decided to fight for the establishment of a separate Muslim state in 1930. By 1940, Quaid-e-Azam had gradually prepared the nation mentally. But the fact is that the independence movement started even before 1857. It was obvious that scholars had a full role to play in this process.
