POLITICAL UNREST AND RIOTS WERE EXPECTED IN LAHORE
PRESENTATION BY AHMADIYAH GROUP TO THE PRINCE
The Prince of Wales made a tour around the world. He came to India too, and also visited Lahore. That was on 25th February, 1922. Unrest was expected here as there was political instability. But tempers cooled down or were brought down by strategy. Various groups reacted in different way. The Ahmadiyah in Lahore collected one anna (16 annas to Rupee) each from the 500,000 members and made a presentation to the Prince. A reply was received from the Chief Secretary of the Prince of Wales. The Prince was asked to study Ahmadiyah literature. These are the kinds of events that developed in Lahore to make it a hotbed of politics.
The result Dr Allama Iqbal emerged on the scene and convinced Quaid e Azam Muhammd Ali Jinnah To wage a battle for Pakistan. The moderate elements of Islam won the game and Pakistan was created in letter and spirit. The Ideology of Pakistan finally gave a geography to practice the reconstruction of religion in Islam.
