Demand for Pakistan

Sir Muhammad Iqbal in 1930 conceived a plan of a Muslim State. Later on a group of youngmen led by Rahmat Ali propagated this plan. Their plan was different from that of Iqbal. Sir Iqbal wanted the merger of the provinces where muslims were in majority into a single State within Indian Federation. However Rahmat Ali proposed that these provinces should have a separate federation of their own. He called it as Pakistan.
