Allama Iqbal the, poet of the west, the national poet of Pakistan, is known for his poems. His works are loved and respected throughout the sub-continent regardless of which country he was in or which one he dreamt of.

A little about Allama Iqbal
Born in 1877, he was a staunch believer in a state where Hindu Islam and all religions within India could exist freely and happily, but after some time, he realized that it was not possible. After that, he dreams of Pakistan, a land where Muslims could have their say and not be oppressed. He died in 1938, way before he could see Pakistan being formed but he will, to this date, be the country’s national poet who gave the people back then hope.
