High time to follow Iqbal’s teachings to address social ills, national challenges: President

He viewed that the Muslims of this sub-continent would always remain indebted to the great visionary leader for his invaluable services.
President Alvi said it was an occasion to recall and vow to the nation to follow his message of self-awareness and self esteem.

President Dr Arif Alvi has said that amid prevailing challenges, it is high time to revert to this message of Allama Muhammad Iqbal to find solution to the ills corroding the society and hindering the progress and prosperity.

“Faced with various challenges, let us revert to his own message and pledge ourselves to make a deliberate attempt by putting aside our differences, demonstrating unity and striving together for finding solutions to the ills that corrode our culture and hinder our march towards progress and prosperity,” the president said in his message to the nation on eve of the anniversary of Allama Muhammad Iqbal being observed on Saturday.

While paying rich tribute to the great thinker, philosopher and poet Allama Muhammad Iqbal, President Alvi said it was an occasion to recall and pledge for the nation to follow his message of self-awareness and self esteem.

He viewed that the Muslims of the sub-continent would always remain indebted to the great visionary leader because of his invaluable services.

The president said Allama Iqbal had infused a new spirit among the Muslims of the sub-continent, changed their thought process and supplied them with a strong ideological foundation to try for regaining their lost identity.

The great leader had also envisioned the idea of a separate homeland for the Muslims of this sub-continent and made remarkable contributions towards understanding the true message of Islam, he added.

He said no doubt, Allama Iqbal was among those few men and women, who had been appreciated equally from the East and the West, and his job had been researched and appraised by scholars around the globe.

“The requirement to recall the message of Allama Iqbal has never been as great as it is today.

Let’s vow on this day to make even greater efforts for the fulfillment of this dream of our forefathers.
