The 83rd death anniversary of Dr Allama Muhammad Iqbal is being observed today across the country to acknowledge his struggle and services for a separate homeland for the Muslims of the subcontinent.

State-run TV and other private channels and radio paid special tribute to the national poet for his vision. 

Born on November 9, 1877, in Sialkot, Dr Iqbal was a great representative of the subcontinent and one of the main exponents of the Pakistan Movement.

He was regarded as a Sufi poet of the modern age and a man of great ideas and dynamics. 

Allama Iqbal was both a great poet, thinker, and philosopher who infused a revolutionary spirit in the Muslim youth of the subcontinent at the time through his poetry.

He was given the title of Allama due to his deep thinking and far-sightedness.

Allama Iqbal’s poetry has been translated into Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, English, and several other languages. The poet-philosopher died on April 21, 1938.
