 About Book  About Author 

The All-India Muslim League produced very little literature on Muslim nationalism or the Pakistan demand and, still less, on the nature of the future set-up in the new state. The material published on this subject before the passage of the Lahore/Pakistan Resolution was probably
more in volume than the one which came out after it. The present work is a collection of thirteen articles, printed and widely circulated in the form of pamphlets under the "Pakistan Literature Series" during 1945-47. These articles bear unique importance in many respects. They cover a wide range of subjects which no other single contemporary work has done. Even after independence, not much work was done on these subjects. Again their importance lies in the fact that some of
these articles were written by eminent Muslim scholars and published under the authority of the committee of writers of the All-India Muslim League. These articles were originally published by Shaikh Muhammad Ashraf, a publisherfrom Lahore, and with his permission these have been published in a book form. An introduction precedes the articles to enable the readers to understand their contents.

M. Rafique Afzal was born in September 1941 in Jhang Sadar (Punjab) Pakistan; educated at Government College, Chakwal; Gordon College, Rawalpindi and University of Toronto, Canada. He served as Research Assistant at Historical Research Institute, University of the Punjab, Lahore (1963); Research Supervisor at Research Society of Pakistan, Lahore (1964-70); Senior/Principal Research Fellow at National Commission on Historical and Cultural Research, Islamabad (1975-77); and Professor of History, Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad. He has published works on Muslim leaders of the freedom movement including Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Allama Muhammad
Iqbal, Nawabzada Liaquat Ali Khan, and Malik Barkat Ali. Among his other publications are: Political Parties in Pakistan, 1947-1971, in 3 volumes (NIHCR); Pakistan: History and Culture, 1971-1971 (OUP); and A History of the All-India Muslim League, 1906-1947 (OUP).
