Islamabad: April 20, 2017; The vision of Hakeem-ul-Ummah, Allama Muhammad Iqbal was global, encompassing every colour and race of humanity.

Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq expressed these views in his message on the occasion of 79th Death Anniversary of Allama Muhammad Iqbal.
The Speaker said that extremism and bigotry had no place in the Allama Iqbal’s scheme of things and he wanted Muslims to be moderate, peaceful and enlightened so that their deeds convince non Muslim to develop penchant for Islam.
He said that prior to 1940, when Pakistan resolution was formally passed; Allama Iqbal's philosophical and poetic writings were instrumental in formation and molding of public opinion. The dream of Allama Iqbal was a great blessing for the Muslims of the subcontinent, he added.
The Speaker said that Allama Iqbal visualized the suffering of Muslim Ummah and masses that led to their melt down and also proposed recipe for their revival and regaining the lost glory of the Muslims. He was the great proponent of unity of Muslim Ummah and reliance on their resources and strength.
