Mr. Ghulam Hasnain Mazhari presented the Kalam of Iqbal in a beautiful voice.
On this occasion, Dr. Haroon Al-Rashid Tabasam said that revolutions grow in the minds of intellectuals. The establishment of Pakistan is the fruit of the revolutionary movement. It is the blessing of Pakistan that we are free today. We have to use our talents for our country. We have to be protectors of Iqbal and Quaid's thought. Professor Dr. Mehboob Hussain said that Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was a fearless leader. Despite the difficulties, he persisted in his mission. His sayings are the source of inspiration for us. The personalities of Allama Muhammad Iqbal and Quaid-e-Azam are a beacon for us. Quaid-e-Azam wanted a complete welfare state. If we want to move forward as a nation and live a dignified life, we have to pass on this legacy to the next generation. Dr. Muhammad Arif Khan while talking to the young students said that we have not played our due role. Now it is your responsibility. Iqbal's thought has the potential for movement and growth. If scholars and philosophers make use of Iqbal's prose, then the common people get benefit from his poetry. Abdul Mateen Akhwanzada said that the dreams of Allama Muhammad Iqbal and Quaid-i-Azam are a debt to us. We have to pay off this debt. We are in trouble until we determine the direction. We will not develop until we initiate dialo0gue in the society.
Dr. Waheed-ul-Zaman Tariq said that Pakistan was inevitable. Allama Muhammad Iqbal and Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah knew that there was no room to accommodate Muslims in India. And this is the cause of Pakistan. Embrace the message of Allama Iqbal and follow the Quaid-e-Azam. We have no other option. Prof. Dr. Baseera Ambarin thanked all the guests. She said that the inspiring leadership of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah gave practical color to the outline presented by Allama Muhammad Iqbal. Iqbal's firework changed the history of the world. The Tehreek-e-Pakistan has changed the map of the world and proved that even rocky rocks crumble in front of determined intentions.
