            Considering separate electorates to be the main hindrance in improving Hindu-Muslim relations, Jinnah proposed that if the Congress agreed to provide certain safeguards, the Muslim League would give up this demand. Consequently, the proposals were formally approved at a conference held by the Muslim League in 1927 at Delhi. The Delhi Muslim proposals proposed the following safeguards: (i) the formation of a separate province of Sindh and (ii) introduction of reforms in the North West Frontier Province and Baluchistan on the same footing as in the other provinces.
