Web Desk: The 80th death anniversary of national poet and philosopher Dr Allama Muhammad Iqbal is being observed on Saturday (April 21).
Born in Sialkot, the Shair-e-Mashriq is considered to be one of the most important figures in South Asian literature, with works in both Urdu and Persian
Allama Iqbal through his revolutionary thinking had given the Muslims of the Sub-Continent the concept of a separate state where they can live in accordance with their religion and customs.
His work and thoughts are still relevant in the society. Some of his best works comprise Asrar-e-Khudi, Payam-i-Mashriq, Bang-i-Dara, Bal-i-Jibril, Zarb-i Kalim and Armughan-e-Hijaz
In his message on this occasion, Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq said Pakistan can achieve a clear distinction in political, economic, social and religious spheres by following the thought and philosophy of Allama Muhammad Iqbal in true spirit.
