The dawn of freedom over India in Augu;t 194 7 ; after a iong and bitter struggle · against British Raj, was one of the seminal development of modern l ndian history. The partition of Indian subcontinent was the most negati ve aspect of this struggle against British imperialism. This struggle has arouse·d profound scholarly interes.t over the past fi ve decades, yet despite having the enormous literature upon the manner in which India won freedom and the sub-· c011tinent was partitioned into the sovereign state's, various important facts of this historical event sti-11 remain unexplored. There are only few research workers on the history of Muslim League. In fact these works were written more than fi~e decades back when sources such as government proceedings, private papers of Indian leaders, Viceroys and other British officials we_re not ava ilable. These rich and informati ve sources arc now available and a true and comprehensive story of the history of the League can be reconstructed on the bnsis of these sources. My topics thus deals with the history of }1[usl im League. . ,• However, I have chosen seven important year of League i.e. 1936 to 1943. It is during these year that the League become a formidable organization. The consolidation of the All India Muslim League; and consequently its emergence as 'Third Party' in the . political firmament of India in such a short span of time, \\ hich ultimately ... forced the other to Parties-British and Indian National Congress to accepts its demand for Pakistan, is one such significant and seminal historical development which needs an in-depth analysis and exploration.

Vijay Kumar Khare, my Supervisor, who has throughout been of great help to me in the task of presenting the present work .
