Pakistan and the modern world

Question No 1

Why Muslims demand a separate country.?

During his visit to America, Liaqat Ali khan gave some important reasons why Muslims demand a separate country. He said that Pakistan came into existence in 1947. In United India, there lived three hundred million Hindus and one hundred million Muslims. The Muslims and Hindus differed sharply in their mode of living these differences were related to religious economics political matters. 

Liaqat Ali khan tells the Americans that the two nations differed almost in every field of life. The Muslims believed in one God but the Hindus worshipped many gods. The Muslims believed in the Divine Prophets but the Hindus did not these differences prevailed between the two peoples in almost every situation of their daily lives.

Liaquat Ali khan tells the Americans that the two nations also differed in their social and economic affairs. The Hindus believed in the caste system whereas the Muslims believed in the equality of men. The Muslims believed fin the right of private ownership for everyone, whereas the Hindus believed in communism. The Muslims had faith in the laws of inheritance. They had economic institutions that discouraged the accumulation of wealth. The Hindus did not have such laws. In this way, the Muslims differed sharply from the Hindus.

Liaqat Ali Khan pointed out to the Americans that Hindus were much larger in number. After the departure of the British, the Muslims would suffer a great set back. They also feared that they can't make progress economically under the Hindos. It would simply be the change of masters.
