Correct Answer - Option 4 : 1940

The correct answer is 1940.

  • The resolution was first called the Lahore resolution which afterward became the Pakistan Resolution, was presented on March 24, 1940.
  • This resolution was drafted by Sikandar Hayat Khan and presented on 23 March 1940 by Fazlul Haque.
  • This was a statement drafted by 25 members of the working committee of all Indian Muslim league and it was drafted between march 22, 1940 and march 24, 1940.
  • It was presented by Quaid-e-Azam (Muhammad Ali Jinnah) and the crux of the statement was the demand for a separate land for Muslims where they can practice their religion freely and the land was named the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

  • Lahore Session of Muslim League (1940):
    • The Lahore Resolution was a formal statement, which sought the creation of a separate Muslim state.
    • The political statement, written by Zafarullah Khan and other prominent members of the ‘All-India Muslim League,’ proposed the creation of an ‘independent state’ based on a predominantly Muslim population.
    • When the resolution was put forth by the then Chief Minister of undivided Bengal, A. K. Fazl ul Huq, people started using the word ‘Pakistan’ quite frequently as the Hindu leaders described the resolution as a demand to create Pakistan.
    • Hence, the ‘Lahore Resolution’ is considered a landmark document in Pakistan’s history.
    • A monument called ‘Minar-e-Pakistan’ stands in Lahore to commemorate the famous resolution.
    • March 23 is observed as a national holiday in Pakistan to celebrate Republic Day and to commemorate the Lahore Resolution.
