Allama Mohammad Iqbal, whom Sarojini Naidu called the aPoet laureate of Asiaa, remains a controversial figure in the history of the Indian subcontinent. On the one hand, he is considered the aSpiritual Father of Pakistana. On the other, his message of Eastern revivalism places him in the ranks of the twentieth centuryas major intellectuals. Iqbalas tragedy was that after his death, he was made the national poet of Pakistan and largely ignored in India. In his time, he was lauded as much as Tagore, but today India celebrates Tagore while Iqbal has been banished from her consciousness. This meticulously researched biography will redress that erasure. This is the story of Iqbalas evolution as a poet, philosopher and politician. While his role in the struggle for Indiaas freedom and the Pakistan movement are well known, not much is known about his personal life. This book highlights some of the least known facets of the poetas life: how did a nationalist poet transform into a poet of Islamic revivalism and global revolution? How did three years in Europe change Iqbalas political and philosophical outlook? Why did he start writing in Persian during his stay in Europe? Why did his first marriage fail and how did his romantic relationships affect him? What exactly was the poetas role in bringing about Partition? Written with the passion of an ardent devotee, Zafar Anjumas Iqbal answers all of these questionsaand many moreain this carefully told biography.(Iqbal Baapki Haisiyat Sein Allama IqbalaHayat, FikroFan) 7 Later, she became Mrs. Doris Ahmad. ... 9The sixth book ofhis poetry, Gabriela#39;sWing (BaaliJibreel) wasin Urdu and was selfpublished inJanuary 1935 from Lahore.His seventh bookof ... 8Thisentire episode is based on an essay by Dr Javed Iqbal, a#39;IqbalaEk Baap Ki Haisiyat Sea#39; in Allama Iqbal: Hayat, FikroFan, compiled by Dr Saleem Akhtar.
