Additional Commissioner, Lahore, Director Iqbal Academy, Pakistan Dr. Basira Umbereen, Dr. Waheed-ul- Zaman Tariq and Dr. Muhammad Ijaz were also present on the occasion. Addressing the seminar, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Education, Prof. Dr. Talat Naseer Pasha (S.I.) thanked the distinguished guest and said that I have visited India many times and felt very bad to see the status of Muslims and thanked the Allah Who gave us a free country like Pakistan. He said in order to understand Iqbal's thought, the basic point should be that Dr. Muhammad Allama Iqbal emerged at such a turning point in the history of Islam when the Muslims of sub-continent were about to re-emerge as a free nation after centuries of slavery and intellectual decline. Iqbal's dream was turned into a reality by the Quaid, but the reality of this dream is not limited to the establishment of an Islamic state, but also to make this state a prosperous for people belonging to all schools of thought without any discrimination. Therefore, today's young generation needs to learn a lot from “Ufkar-e-Iqbal” and then follow it practically. Justice (R) Nasira Javed Iqbal in her address said that in Iqbal's two-nation ideology, there is no room for theocracy, but respect for humanity. We have achieved political freedom but mentally we are still in the chains of slavery and liberation from this slavery lies in Iqbal's thought. Director Iqbal Academy, Pakistan Dr. Basira Umbereen, Dr. Waheed-ul-Zaman Tariq, Dr. Muhammad Ijaz, Director Division of Arts and Social Sciences Prof. Dr. Waheed-ur-Rehman and Director Student Affairs Dr. Muhammad Omar Saleem also addressed the gathering. The seminar was also attended by a large number of students and personalities from different walks of life.
