Justice (Retd) Nasira Javed Iqbal said that she lived with Dr. Javed Iqbal for 51 years. He always encouraged her. He had very positive thoughts and always put my opinion first in matters of home and children. He never brought court work home. I was against his participation in politics, but when he entered politics, I supported him fully. Dr. Javed Iqbal believed in hard work and the youth of the country. He used to say that youth should do something that would make their name and the name of the country bright. He lived according to the thought of Allama Iqbal's poems for him.
Prof. Dr. Baseera Ambreen said that late Javed Iqbal had his own unique style. Javed Iqbal proved to be Javed in true sense. He performed the task of spreading Iqbal's thought in a very good way. A prominent reference is "Zinda Rood". He proved himself to be a distinguished personality through his writing and practical life. His life is a practical interpretation of Allama Iqbal's poems written on him.
Prof. Waheed-ul-Zaman Tariq said that Justice (R) Javed Iqbal always performed the duty of truthfulness and boldness. Sticking to principles all his life, he refused even the biggest position. Javed Iqbal's book "Ideology of Pakistan" is the best reference on the foundation of Pakistan.
