As a political vanguard, no one in India was a match to Jinnah. He is a fearless and indomitable leader of the masses. [Raj Gopal Acharia]

Jinnah was a rare combination of intelligence, wisdom, valor and character. [Monty Chelmsford]
Jinnah was a political genius. His command of the English language was superior to us the Brits. He addressed crowds for hours and I never heard him stop to think for the right word. [Viceroy Lord Wavell]

The resolution was moved in the general session by Choudhury Khaliquzzaman who repeated M.A. Jinnah’s views on what led to the demand for partition.
It was a landmark document of Pakistan’s history. It formed the basis for the decision of Muslim League to struggle for one state [later named Pakistan] for the Muslims. The statement declared:
The Hindu press and leaders were quick to describe the resolution as the demand for the creation of Pakistan; some people began to call it the Pakistan Resolution soon after the Lahore session of the Muslim League. It is landmark document in history of Pakistan. Additionally, it stated:
That geographically contiguous units are demarcated into regions which should be constituted, with such territorial readjustments as may be necessary that the areas in which the Muslims are numerically in a majority as in the North Western and Eastern Zones of (British) India should be grouped to constitute 'independent states' in which the constituent units should be autonomous and sovereign.
In this session the political situation was analyzed in detail and why Muslims demanded a separate homeland to maintain their identification and to safeguard their rights. Pakistan resolution was the landmark in the history of Muslim of South-Asia. It determined for the Muslims a true goal and their homeland in north-east and north-west. The acceptance of the Pakistan resolution accelerated the pace of freedom movement. It gave new energy and courage to the Muslims who gathered around Muhammad Ali Jinnah for struggle for freedom.
Israel is the illegitimate child of the west. MAJ
