Urdu Society to celebrate poet’s birth anniversary

THE Pakistan Urdu Literary Society (Halqa-e-Adab) will celebrate Iqbal Day on Friday, marking the 130th birth anniversary of Pakistan’s national leader and poet Allama Mohammed Iqbal.

The event will be held at the Bahrain Society of Engineers in Juffair at 5.30pm and all Pakistani community members are welcome to attend.

Separate seats for women will be available.

Iqbal is best known for his poetic works, including Asrar-e-Khudi – which brought a knighthood – Rumuz-e-Bekhudi, and the Bang-e-Dara, with its enduring patriotic song Sare Jahan Se Acha Hindustan Humara (India is the best amongst the whole world).

Iqbal was a strong proponent of the political and spiritual revival of Islamic civilisation across the world, specifically in India.

One of the most prominent leaders of the All India Muslim League, Iqbal encouraged the creation of a "state in northwestern India for Indian Muslims” in his 1930 presidential address.

Iqbal encouraged and worked closely with Muhammad Ali Jinnah and he is known as Muffakir-e-Pakistan (The Thinker of Pakistan), Shair-e-Mashriq (The Poet of the East), and Hakeem-ul-Ummat (The Sage of Ummah).

He is officially recognised as the "national poet” in Pakistan.

Highlights of the programme will be the welcome speech by the society chairman Rizwan Mumtaz.

No nation can afford to allow the memories and achievements of its heroes fade into oblivion, said Mr Mumtaz.

"Iqbal Day has always been a traditional programme at the Pakistan Club, actively participated by the members from all walks of life.”

Local poets Abdulhaq Arif, Mohammed Ashraf Asim, Mohammed Anwar Bhatti, Anwar Bhatti, Iqbal Tariq and Riaz Shahid will join poets from the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia and recite highlights of Iqbal’s inspirational poetry, followed by a quiz competition.

Row over new Urdu school building

HUBLI:Controversy has cropped up over an Urdu primary school building coming up in Unkal, as the public allege that the structure is encroaching on land reserved for garden.

Hubli rural block of the Public Instruction Department is constructing a new building for the Urdu medium school on agriculture land which it got from a local donor.

Convenor of the Unkal Jana Jagarana Vedike, Sanju Badaskar said they had intimated the sensitivity of the matter to the authorities concerned several times verbally and in writing.

He noted that as the Muslim population in Unkal village is less, running a school there will not serve any purpose.

Expressing doubts over the hurry in starting the construction work, Badaskar said the officials were misleading the public saying that no permission was necessary to construct a government school.

He asked officials to show blue print and permission from the authority.

Block Education Officer (Hubli rural) P S Mullur brushed aside the allegation of encroachment and said the department is running an Urdu school since 1991 at a local masjid as it does not have its own building.

Records show that earlier there was an Urdu Higher Primary School. The department has received Rs 4.4 lakh under Sarava Shikha Abhiyan to build two classrooms.

The allegations have a communal angle. The Jana Jagarana Vedike has appealed to shift the location of the school. AN Urdu school near a temple could ignite communal sentiments of either community and disturb the peace
