When going back to history, it is worth mentioning that Pakistan was under the rule of the British Empire for about two centuries. At that time, Muhammad Ali Jinnah believed that no matter whether the Indian Subcontinent gained its independence, still the Muslims would be observed as a minority.

Ali Jinnah, along with Alama Iqbal, were well aware that if British rule ended, the Muslims still would not be able to protect their fundamental rights. Thus, in 1940, a conference was held in Lahore, where the head of the All-India Muslim League, M. Ali Jinnah, passed a resolution demanding the separation of Pakistan and India as Muslims were mistreated in India.

Nevertheless, Muhammad Ali Jinnah firmly believed that both nations had separate entities, values, beliefs, cultures, and religious aspects, so it would be preferable to be separated.

Considering every aspect, the British, on 3rd June 1947, planned to divide the Indian subcontinent into two different countries, Pakistan and India. As a result,  Pakistan gained independence on 14th August 1947, and India gained independence on 15th August 1947.

Seperation of Pakistan and India

After the creation of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, became the first Governor General of Pakistan, and Mr. Liaqat Ali Khan became the first Prime Minister of Pakistan.
