A History of the all-India Muslim League 1906-1947 free pdf This work presents an exhaustive study of the growth and rise of the leading Muslim political party of the South Asian Subcontinent-the All-India Muslim League. Founded in December 1906, it began as an elite party, limiting its membership to 400 for the whole subcontinent and charging very high registration and annual fees. It passed through several phases in its history, articulating Muslim demands at the all-India and provincial levels. Except for short intervals of dormancy, the processes of its membership enrolment and party elections from the grassroots to the central level were amazingly regular and quite remarkable. The climax of its activities used to be all-India annual and special sessions. Muslims would attend these sessions from the remotest corner of the Subcontinent. During its final phase, Quaid-i-Azam M.A. Jinnah transformed it into a mass party, which had active branches in all the provinces of British India. Despite limited resources in funding and propaganda, the Party successfully mobilized the Muslim masses of every school of thought in support of its demand for Pakistan. Its lasting contribution is the Pakistan that it achieved within less than a decade of commencing this phase of historic struggle. Based on Muslim League and other contemporary primary sources, Dr Afzal gives a comprehensive account of this remarkable phenomenon of a Muslim political party.
