The Congress adopted it at its Lucknow Session on 29 December and the League adopted it on 31 December, 1916. Thus meeting at Lucknow marked the reunion of the moderate and radical wings of the Congress. This pact dealt the structure of the government of India as well as the relation of Hindu and Muslim communities.
The main historical points in the background of Lucknow Pact 1916 are as follows;
1.) 1st Word War:

2.) Indian Sacrifice:
Indians sacrificed a lot in terms of lives, manpowe, supplies, finances and patience with high prices of wheat, kerosene, rice, etc.
3.) Turkey Issue:
There were reservations of Muslims about Turkey and they wanted to dispel their pro-British reputation.
4.) Participation in governing the Sub- continent:
The Lucknow Pact between the Muslim league and the Congress was led due to the growing determination to participate in the governing of Sub- continent.
The joining of the Muslim League by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah gave a new determination to Indian policies.
6.) Self rule:
Muslim League had already demanded self rule for India as had the Congress.
7.) Separate electorates:
The Muims were demanding separate electorates. Both the parties were demanding same privileges.
