    Muslim League

    Successor of the All-India Muslim League. Established in 1906 in Dhaka. Led the movement for the creation of Pakistan. Sought to protect Muslim political rights in British India, achieve self-government, and cooperate with the All-India National Congress. Its first president, Mohammad Ali Jinnah , argued for creation of a separate Muslim province in Sindh and Muslim representation in Bengal and Punjab. In 1930 Muhammad Iqbal articulated the two-nation theory and the notion of Muslim self-determination. After the Lahore Resolution of 1940 , it articulated a demand for a Muslim homeland. Jinnah finally agreed to the two-nation theory, which ultimately became the basis for the creation of the state of Pakistan. The Muslim League later splintered into factions; the primary surviving party is the Pakistan Muslim League.
