Soul of Muslim Nation

In his Presidental Address delivered at the Special Pakistan Session of the Punjab Muslim Studentss Federation on March 2, 1941, the Quaid-e-Azam said:

"The only solution for the Muslims of India, which will stand the test of trial and time, is that India should be partitioned so that both the communities can develop freely and fully according to their own genius economically, socially, culturally and politically. The struggle is for the fullest opportunities and for the expression of the Muslim national will. The vital contest in which we are engaged is not only fot the material gain but also the very existence of the soul of Muslim nation: Hence I have said often that it is matter of life and death to the Mussalmans and is not a counter for bargaining. Muslims have become fully concious of this. if we lose in the struggle all is lost. Let our motto be as the Dutch proverb says:

'Money is lost nothing is lost;
Courage is lost much is lost;
Honour is lost most is lost;
Soul is lost all is lost'
[Loud applause]
