Description

Iqbal: The Life of a Poet, Philosopher and Politician is a gripping biography of Allama Muhammad Iqbal, one of the most controversial figures in the history of the Indian subcontinent.

Summary of the Book

Iqbal: The Life of a Poet, Philosopher and Politician is the story of Urdu’s greatest contemporary poet - the man who wrote Sare Jahan Se Acha Hindustan Hamara and was later considered the national poet of Pakistan. On one hand, Allama Muhammad Iqbal is considered the Spiritual Father of Pakistan, while on the other hand his message of Eastern revivalism gets him on the list of the twentieth century's major intellectuals. The book explores Iqbal’s evolution as a poet, philosopher and politician. The book highlights some of the lesser known aspects of his life from his transformation into a poet of Islamic revivalism to his life in Europe and his role in bringing about the Partition. This book is a must-have for those interested in the life and work of Muhammad Iqbal.

An Average Book

The book is a lazy journalistic take on Iqbal's life, which is almost like a wikipedia entry with no depth to his enigma or his greatness. The writing is below average and the book is a work of no scholarship. The actual biography is less than 200 pages and a life like Iqbal's can't be described in so less words.
