Abstract:     
This paper is an attempt to show in the light of the speeches of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah the meaning and import of two nation theory. The over all impact of this theory is that Muslims and Hindus have different beliefs and their culture develops in the light of their respective beliefs. But as Pakistani citizens they will all be Pakistanis. Hindus will profess their religion and Muslims will profess their religion. There is no ambiguity in the objectives resolution. Pakistan is an Islamic Republic. State religion is Islam and nor law can be passed which is repugnant to the injunctions of Islam. Islam itself says that there is no compulsion in the matter of Religion. All citizens of Pakistan have equal protection of law in respect of their life, honour and property. All citizens are called citizens of Pakistan. As a Pakistani they are all loyal to the State. The law of the land fully protects the rights of minorities or non-Muslims. In this paper I have relied upon the collections of late Khurshid Ahmad Khan Yusufi who was a highly learned person and author of valuable books of which this collection edited by him is a monumental work. Bazm-i-Iqbal deserves the whole credit for having provided so authentic material for the researches which otherwise would have been difficult to obtain. I am to express my gratitude to the most honourable Mr. Majid Nizami, Chairman, Nazariyya-i-Pakistan Trust and the most honourable Dr. Rafiq Ahmad former Vice Chancellor and now Deputy Chairman of the Nazariyya-i-Pakistan Trust for being kind enough to gift me this valuable collection of four volumes. May they live long and may their efforts be the beacon light for the young generation. (Aameen).
