Hi, Everyone! The Congress Working Committee resolution acceding Pakistan reigned supreme—as affirmed by the Congress dictators on August 6, 1942.
Note the date: August 6, 1942. Quit India Movement was launched on August 8, 1942.
Quit India was a most hollow, doomed-for-failure Movement—but the Congress High Command must surely not have known that? They must have expected to gain some form of independence.
· Hence their rush to pass the Pakistan resolution . . . ?
· Had India (in the most unlikely chance) gained independence then, Congress had paved the way to hack India into pieces in 1942 . . . !
There was also an interesting factor exposed in the United India resolution:
“Another revealing feature of the Akhand Hindustan [united India, made by the A.I.C.C.] resolution was that all the Muslim members of the A.I.C.C. opposed it in the Allahbad meeting of the A.I.C.C. and issued a joint statement in regard to it.”
Note that all the Muslim members of the All-India Congress Committee—just like their High Command—were in favor of Pakistan too!
And they, along with a significant number of other Muslims who voted for the Muslim League, did not move bag-and-baggage to Pakistan after partition.
They, the Hindu-Muslim problem, and an Indian Muslim League party remained behind in India even after Partition . . . !
Just a thought: What exactly did India achieve by partition?
· Was the Hindu-Muslim problem solved? No.
· Did the violence end? No.
· Did Congress have free rein? Yes.
