Product Description

The book explores the contribution of common people, including Muslim students, women, mystics, laborers, peasants, small-businessmen and low-cadre of government employees, of existing Pakistani territory in the Pakistan Movement, from 1940 to 1947. It challenges the common perception that only political leaders and the Muslim League made Pakistan. It argues that the common people of present Pakistani areas were not silent spectators of the historical developments of their time. This work has been produced under framework of radicalism which brings hidden historical facts to light. It does not refute the concept of affectivity and role of Quaid-i-Azam and his other colleagues who were playing their part in the conversations regarding transfer of power but adds to the existing knowledge that common people of existing Pakistani areas had provided real force to plans and point of views of the Quaid-i-Azam. It is tried to be proved with the solid evidence that without contribution of different marginalized sections of the society, making of Pakistan could be more difficult or at least inclusion of almost all existing areas of Pakistan in the Muslim homeland was rather impossible because the Muslim League did not have deep routes on grass-rout level in most of these areas. It was due to efforts of students, women, mystics and other social groups that the Muslim League was made popular within last few years of colonial rule and four Pakistani provinces successfully passed through the last examination, imposed on them in the June 3rd Plan 1947. So it was the last stage of Pakistan movement where impact of the workers of Pakistan movement was observed clearly. The files of workers of Pakistan movement, available at Pakistan Movement Workers Trust, interviews of the workers of Pakistan movement besides many other primary sources, had given validity to the point of view raised in this study.
