Bitter facts about Choudihry Rehmat Ali

1.    Choudhry Rehmat Ali was the first person to coin the word Pakistan in his booklet, ‘Now or Never, We are to Live or Perish for Ever’.

2.    This booklet was published from the Cambridge University on 28 January 1933, and he presented it to Mohammed Ali Jinnah.

3.    Mohammed Ali Jinnah after reading it called it ‘a fool’s dream’.

4.    Mohammed Ali Jinnah reiterated that he would continue with his mission of forging a unity between Muslims and non Muslims.

6.    After creation of Pakistan, in April 1948, Choudhry Rehmat Ali also moved to Pakistan – a land of his dream.
