Today’s Pakistan not in accord with Iqbal’s vision: Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri

Allama Iqbal ka Khawab awr Aaj ka Pakistan
The spirit and yearning for freedom which Allama Dr Muhammad Iqbal generated among the Muslims of the sub-continent was responsible for the establishment of Pakistan. Today, Pakistan whose dream Allama Muhammad Iqbal dreamed is engulfed by myriad of external and internal problems. The scourges of extremism, terrorism, extremism and provincialism are eating into the vitals of our body politic. Pakistan’s honour stands damaged at the international level due to internal fissures and fires of terrorism. It is the responsibility of the youth and the students that they act to steer Pakistan to the safe shores from the uncharted waters in which it is stuck today by seeking guidance from the ‘real leadership’ and thoughts of Iqbal.

Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri expressed these views while delivering a keynote speech telephonically from Canada at a seminar on “Thought of Iqbal and Today’s Pakistan”. The seminar was organized by Minhaj University in connection with the death anniversary of the Poet of East, Allama Dr Muhammad Iqbal.

He said that today’s Pakistan does not embody the vision of the country Allama Iqbal propagated. Basic human rights are being undermined today. There is a crisis of leadership with the result that the nation is confused and suffers from serious lack of confidence. Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri advised students to focus their undivided attention on their education because it is through knowledge that the country could join the developed world. The students should make their mark in life in whatever field they opt to join after completion of their education. He said Pakistan’s lost glory could only be regained by seeking guidance from the teachings of Allama Iqbal, Quaid-e-Azam and ‘real leadership’ in the present age.
