What is the role of Chaudhry Rehmat Ali in the history of Pakistan?

In the history of Pakistan, Chaudhry Rehmat Ali holds immense respect because of his valuable contribution to his country by suggesting its ultimate name, which the world would later recognize the state as. He suggested this name based on the comprehension of its meaning which read as 'Land of the Pure'.

Apart from that Chaudhry Rehmat Ali was the unofficial pioneer who presented the idea that the Muslims should have a separate state of their own. He continued to write pamphlets and urge the Muslim leaders to bring the very demand forward. Nevertheless in the initial phases great Muslim leaders like Mohammed Ali Jinnah and Allama Iqbal weren't in agreement with the idea and instead believe in having a loose federation within united India with protected rights. In this way, Chaudhry Rehmat Ali was way ahead of the Muslim League as he had envisaged the repercussions the Muslims would face in a united subcontinent, way before the great Muslim leaders had realized it.

It is rather ironic that Rehmat Ali and Quaid-e-Azam never agreed in the political arena yet both of them had the same interest and goodwill at heart. However it doesn't fade the vitality of the role that Chaudhry Rehmat Ali played in the creation of Pakistan.
