What is the two-nation theory advanced by the Muslim League?

Answer :

Two-nation theory advanced by the Muslim League states that India consisted of not one but two people, Hindus and Muslims. According to the Muslim League, there should be a separate country for Muslims i.e. Pakistan and India should be of the Hindus only. Two- nation theory was the basis of the struggle for creation of Pakistan which held that Hindus and Muslims are two separate Nations. Partition of India was the outcome of the two-nation theory. The term two-nation theory was first used by Sir Syed Ahmed Khan due to the Hindu-Urdu Controversy in 1867 but M.A. Jinnah initiated this theory in 1940. According to this theory Muslims should be able to have their own separate homeland in the Muslim majority areas of India, in which Islam can be practiced as the dominant religion.
