Pakistan Association of New Zealand cordially invites all community members to commemorate RESOLUTION DAY.
Lahore Resolution passed on 23 March 1940 at the Minar-e-Pakistan for establishing an independent federation, Islamic Republic of PAKISTAN. Leaders such as Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, Allama Iqbal, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, and many others worked tirelessly for the political, social, and economic uplifting of Muslims in British India.
In a Muslim League general session from March 22 to March 24, 1940, Pakistan’s founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah and other party leaders unanimously endorsed the Two-Nation Theory and called for a separate Muslim homeland. An autonomous state consisting of Muslim majority areas of British India was demanded to protect Muslims’ political, social and cultural rights.
It is also a day of reflection of why this resolution passed, and Islamic Republic of PAKISTAN was created.
We are looking forward to seeing you all. Please RSVP for the event arrangements.
