PRELUDE
On December 30,1930 the annual meeting of the All India Muslim League was held at
Allahabad.Allama Iqbal presided over the meeting .On this occation he delivered his famouse
historical aadress which proved to be a milestone in the proceeding to make a demand for an
independent Muslim State.

MAIN POINTS OF THE ADDRESS


1.N.W.F.P Sind,Punjab and Baluchistan should be combined in one state.
2.The Muslims are entirely a different nation from Hindus .Their way of living and social manners are
totally different from the Hindus.Their religion is entirely different in nature from other relations.Thus
the Muslims should get a state of their own in the area of Muslim majority where they may be able to
cultivate their own religious and moral traditions.

IMPORTANCE OF THE ADDRESS


Iqbal's speech at the League session created a mild flutter but generally it was not taken
seriously.Though he had,in detail explained the basis leading to demand a separate homeland.He
mentioned that Islam was not simply the name of a few creeds,the oral recognization of which would
make our ideal Muslim.It had given its followers,the concept of a particular and unique political society
which covered all the phases of their life.
Even though the Muslims of South Asia were disorganized and lay scattered in different parts of the
region,yet their central position was the same.They had the same culture,the same history and same
civilization.These elements gave similarity and agreement to all the Muslims of the Sub Continent on
the one hand and made them quite distinct from the Hindus on the other.
In his Presidential address ,Allama Iqbal said:
"I would like to see the Punjab,North west frontier province,Sind and Baluchistan
amalgamated into a single state.Self government within the British empire without the British
empire,the formation of a consolidated North West Indian Muslim State appears to me to be
the final destiny of the Muslims at least of north west India."

CONCLUSIVE SENTENCES
It is on his Allahabad ddress that Allama Iqbal is known as the dreamer of Pakistan.His address
proved to be a milestone in the history of the Sub Continent and the creation of Pakistan.
