The Bannu Resolution (Pashto: د بنو قرارداد‎), or the Pashtunistan Resolution (Pashto: د پښتونستان قرارداد‎), was a formal political statement adopted in India on June 21, 1947, seven weeks before the Partition of India, by Bacha Khan, Abdul Samad Khan Achakzai, the Khudai Khidmatgars, members of the Provincial Assembly, Mirzali Khan (Faqir of Ipi), and other tribal chiefs at a loya jirga held at Bannu. The resolution demanded that the Pashtuns be given a choice to have an independent state of Pashtunistan, composing all Pashtun territories of British India, instead of being made to join either India or Pakistan. But, the British Raj refused to comply with the resolution.[1][2]
