Welcome to Junagadh State
Before the declaration of independence there existed nearly 600 native states in British India. These states were divided into five categories according to area, population, and revenue of each state. The rulers of the states were entitled “honour” and authority according to their categories. The Junagadh State fell in category one, like Hyderabad. Jammu and Kashmir etc., while Manawadar fell in category five and its ruler was designated as Khan Saheb of Manawadar.
The independence movement of both Hindus as well as Muslims had reached its height. Muslims under the leadership of the Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, President All India Muslim League were demanding a separate State of Pakistan, in those areas of British India, where the Muslims were in majority. The Hindus under the Congress were striving for the independence of India while opposing its division. The all India Muslim League under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam and the historic unity of the Muslim, succeeded in their demand. The British Government as well as Congress leadership ultimately accepted the demand of Muslims. An Act known as the “Indian Independence Act 1947’’ was passed by British Parliament, which created two dominions, one Pakistan and other India. This Act applied only to those provinces, which were under direct administration of the British rule through its Viceroy or the Governor General. Thus the area, which came under Pakistan included the West Punjab, Sindh Province and N.W.F.P and Baluchistan on the Western side called West Pakistan and East Bengal i.e the divided Bengal on Eastern side called East Pakistan. read more
