The 144th birth anniversary of the renowned National Poet of Pakistan and Muffakir-e-Pakistan, Dr. Allama Iqbal is being observed today on 9th November. Allama Muhammad Iqbal was the epitome of rich Urdu literature and one of the most instrumental figures in the history of Pakistan.

Born on November 9th, 1877, in Sialkot, Iqbal was a patron of the political, historical, religious, and cultural journal of Muslims of British India who played an important part in the Pakistan movement.

In his presidential address on December 29, 1930, Iqbal sketched a vision of an independent state for Muslim-majority provinces in Northwestern India;

“I would like to see the Punjab, North-West Frontier Province, Sindh and Baluchistan amalgamated into a single state. Self-government within the British Empire, or without the British Empire, the formation of a consolidated Northwest Indian Muslim state appears to me to be, at least of Northwest India.”

9th November 2016 marks Allama Iqbal’s 139th Birth Anniversary and we have decided to pay homage to the greatest philosopher of all time, by compiling some vintage images and shots from his life.
