Zaheer Mehar introduced the historical perspective and importance of March 23rd. He said that the Lahore Resolution (Urdu: قرارداد لاہور, Karardad-e-Lahore; was written by Muhammad Zafarullah Khaand presented by A. K. Fazl ul Huq, the Prime Minister of Bengal, was a formal political statement adopted by the All-India Muslim League on the occasion of its three-day general session in Lahore on 22–24 March 1940. The resolution called for independent states as seen by the statement:
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 India should be grouped to constitute ‘independent states’ in which the constituent units should be autonomous and sovereign. The name “Pakistan”, however, had been proposed by Choudhary Rahmat Ali in his Pakistan Declaration in 1933.
