Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah resigned from the Indian National Congress in the year 1920. He was a prominent member of the Congress party and had served as the President of the party in 1916 and 1917. However, he grew increasingly disillusioned with the Congress leadership’s attitude towards the rights of Muslims and their insistence on a unified Indian nationalist movement.
Jinnah believed that the Congress was dominated by Hindu interests and that Muslims needed a separate political platform to safeguard their rights and interests. In 1913, he had joined the All India Muslim League, which he would later lead and transform into a powerful force for the demand of a separate Muslim state of Pakistan.
Jinnah’s resignation from the Congress in 1920 marked a significant turning point in his political career and signaled his commitment to the cause of Muslim separatism.
