Dr Allama Iqbal Remembered On 146th Birth Anniversary

The 146th birth anniversary of the Poet of the East, Dr. Allama Muhammad Iqbal, is being observed on Thursday (today) as the nation joins together in patriotic enthusiasm.

Born on November 9, 1877, in Sialkot, the philosopher-poet's influence on the Subcontinent's cultural and political environment is unparalleled.

Dr. Iqbal, known as the Poet of the East, went beyond simple rhyme to emerge as a visionary leader who sparked the spirit of freedom among Muslims. His universal poetry, along with astute political insight, played a critical role in defining the Subcontinent's fate.

Allama Iqbal's landmark address in Allahabad in 1930 is one of the key milestones of his legacy.

In this historic address, he not only crystallized the concept of an autonomous Muslim state but also offered a clear path for Subcontinental Muslims to work for the creation of Pakistan.

This forward-thinking position paved the way for the ultimate construction of a separate nation for Muslims.

The echoes of the great philosopher poet's lyrics continue to inspire generations, establishing a feeling of togetherness and identity among the people of Pakistan.

Iqbal Day honors the enduring memory of a man whose thoughts transcended time and continues to resonate with the nation's soul.
