Chaudhry Rehmat Ali in 1933 in his famous magazine “Now or Never” presented the name of Pakistan and the demand for Pakistan.
This was a very clear demand for a free and independent Muslim state. Earlier, the demands made by other people were not so clear. Chaudhry Rehmat Ali gave a unique name which is also Pak and it also includes the geography of this country (names of provinces). Chaudhry Rehmat Ali had presented the idea of an independent Muslim state in 1915 (Bazm Shibli).
When he was a student of Islamia College Railway Road Lahore. In 1933, he gave it a unique name. And told about the provinces joining this country. It is not unreasonable to say that if they had not presented this name and demand for Pakistan in 1933, Pakistan might not have been established today. And we would be living in northern India today. Because at that time the Muslim delegates of the Round Table Conference had agreed to the Indian Federation in exchange for some minority reservations.
The center was Delhi. Chaudhry Rehmat Ali also formed a party Pakistan National Movement in 1933. The efforts of this party actually started the Tehreek-e-Pakistan. Because he used the platform of this movement to attract the Muslims of India to fight for Pakistan.
He constantly sent articles and pamphlets to India and the world to achieve an independent Pakistan. He also visited several countries to seek his support for Pakistan. Due to which the Muslims of India had made Pakistan their destination even before 1940. His vision was far-sighted and his thinking was very universal. He envisioned ten Muslim states throughout the subcontinent, including Pakistan. He wanted to make India a continent and Asia a Pakistan.
After the formation of Pakistan, he came to Lahore on April 6, 1948. He lamented the division of Bengal and Punjab. Due to this division, a small resurrection took place. He vowed to fight for the independence of Kashmir and the protection of Muslims remaining in India. He also wrote a letter to the UN Secretary General to protect the rights of Muslims remaining in India.
These were differences of opinion. But he was so severely punished for these differences that he was asked to leave Pakistan (KK Aziz, p. 303). He devoted his entire life to the freedom and sovereignty of the Muslims of the entire subcontinent. Not even married. He sacrificed his body and mind for this mission. But their services were rewarded.
Despite adopting the name and plan he created, he was not acknowledged but made baseless and false accusations. They were largely ignored. He was greatly disrespected and neglected. Grief-stricken, he died on February 3, 1951, in Cambridge, Great Britain. For 17 days, his body lay in the cold storage of Be Guru Shroud Hospital. His body has been buried abroad for 68 years. His criticism of not getting a complete Pakistan was his emotional response.
Based on that, all their services were turned upside down. They have been excluded from the history books of Pakistan. Do ignorant nations treat their benefactors like this? He was a thinker. The thinker points to new destinations with his foresight. He determined the destination of the Muslims of India to be Pakistan.
Has a caravan ever reached its destination without a destination? Does the history of this far-sighted thinker have no place in Pakistan? Prime Minister Imran Khan had promised to bring his body to Pakistan before the election. Will they keep their promise?
