Islamabad—The nation owes profound gratitude to the Poet of East, AllamaIqbal, for makings us aware of our past glory to achieve new land marks for a better and prosperous Pakistan. These remarks were made by renowned Iqbal scholars Dr.TalibHussainSial and Dr.AyubSabir while addressing a function to commemorate the 78th death anniversary of the great poet.
The function was organized by Nazriya Pakistan Council (NPC), today at Aiwan-i-Quaid Islamabad. Dr.NaeemGhani, Chairman NPC presided over the function.
Dr. TalibHussainSial, in his speech on ‘Islamic TamaddunkiRooh, Fikr-e-IqbalkiRoshni main’ maintained that we can still brighten our future by practically applying the teachings and philosophy of Iqbal, rendered by him in his unique poetry.
Dr.AyubSabir, talking on ‘IqbalkiTasawwur-e-Islamic Jamhooriat’ categorically said that we have yet to unearth the real meanings of democracy. That could lead us to a path of life our religion demands from a true Muslim, he said.
Expressing his views, the Chairman NPC maintained that we badly need the thoughts of Iqbal to be transferred in action to get rid of many problems of the present times. The function was attended by a good number of admirers of Iqbal besides students of Iqbaliat.
