I will start from Pakistan Studies.I will categorize the subject into the parts and then suggest the relevant books.
1)Reawakening Movements(Mujadid Alf Sani etc)--Plz read DAIRA-E-MARUFE-ISLAMIA,an urdu encyclopadia available in all good libraries.For example you want to get info abt Shah Waliullah,go to the relevant alphabet of urdu(sheen),pick out Shah Waliullah,s name and get a comprehensive knoledge abt him,his age,his books,achievements etc.
2)Pakistan Movement--either read I H QURESHI,s Struggle for pakistan or BRITISH RAJ IN INDIA.Read intensively--even you should be able to differentiate between the clauses of lucknow pact and delhi resolution.
