Round Table on the Lahore question is a Historic Committee dated in 1940, setting up the environment of British India on the verge of independence and partition. In the vigorous rise of communalism and the ongoing World War II, this conference has been called to determine the fate of British India after its independence. The idea of Two 'separate' communal states is blooming and the need of the hour is to address an issue burning the nation - Can we put nationality before communalism?
The conference will consist of political representatives from the Indian National Congress, the All India Muslim League, the British Crown and various princely states along with poets, social reformers and certain personalities from the past as well as the future to provide a dynamic structure to it. It will follow special rules of procedure which may or may not vary from the standard Indian committee procedures. Placed on a specific date, the delegates would only be able to use historic events prior to that and the future is what they would go on to determine.
All further clarifications will be made in the Background Guide.
