Respected Teachers and my dear fellows,
Today I got a chance to express my thoughts about a great poet – Allama Muhammad Iqbal.
Allama Iqbal was born on 9th November 1877 in Sialkot.
He was a great poet and thinker.
He gave the idea of a separate country for the Muslims of India where they could practice Islam with freedom.
He inspired the Muslims of India through his marvelous poetry.
He wrote many books in Urdu, English and Persian.
JAVED NAMA, BALE JABREEL, BANGE DARA are famous books of Allama Iqbal.
He wrote many poems for children like BACHAY KI DUA, HAMDARDI and SHEHD KI MAKHI.
Allama Iqbal wanted children to study hard and gain knowledge.
His message lives in the heart of all Pakistanis.
He died before the creation of Pakistan on 21st April 1938.
Today we owe him a great depth of gratitude.
Pakistan Zinda Baad.
