Session “Iqbal aur Qaum”

A Session “Iqbal aur Qaum” was held at 15th Aalmi urdu conference organized by arts council of Pakistan of Karachi. Presiding over second session, Justice (retd) Nasira Iqbal said that we have to return to the theory that Iqbal gave us as a nation. Unfortunately, we have forgotten the lesson taught by Iqbal and our independence has become doubtful. In this session, Tehseen Faraqi, Noman ul Haque and Sohail Umar also spoke and expressed their views on the subject of Iqbal and the nation. Justice (retd) Nasira Iqbal said that we all should play our part to deal with the worst situation our nation is currently facing due to floods. Ahmed Shah and all the members of the governing body of the Arts Council deserve congratulations for organizing the 15th Aalmi Urdu Conference in the best possible manner and promoting academic and literary activities in the city of Karachi. Tehseen Faraqi said that Iqbal was a divine gift to the world and his grace continues even today. Iqbal’s speech contains universal truths. From his first collection to Armaghan Hijaz, there is only one message and that message is self-righteousness. He said that the fundamental role in the development and evolution of the nation is the elements of destiny and planning. Iqbal had this consciousness from the beginning and all his poetry seems to interpret this message. Our tragedy is that two-thirds of Iqbal’s words are in Persian language and we do not know Persian. This is a big obstacle in deriving the philosophy of life from Iqbal’s words, we have done a great cultural loss by forgetting Persian Language. If we had understood Iqbal’s philosophy ourself and made it our motto, then it would never have been possible that our nation would have gone around the world carrying a kashkul and making fun of it. Sohail Umar said that Iqbal had the pain of his nation and he wanted to improve its political, social, moral and economic conditions. He has explained the dimensions of his relationship with the nation through his poems. Iqbal’s philosophy of life is of extraordinary importance for human beings. Realizing the dangerous situation facing Islamic civilization in the era of Western colonialism, he taught his people to adopt self-reliance and prevent them from blind imitation, which was a serious challenge. Only a great poet like Iqbal could compete. Iqbal’s words will always remain eternal because their meaning is not only for today and tomorrow but for forever. Noman-ul-Haq said that unfortunately our nation is moving away from Iqbal even though his words and message are the most precious capital of human civilization and culture. He said that it is impossible to distill a systematic philosophical system from Iqbal’s poetry because there is diversity in it. Iqbal’s beautiful expression of the connection between the nation and the individual cannot be found anywhere else
