  1. What Allama Iqbal ideas of one Islamic Umma are a bit to fanciful and impractical for me. Why this obsession with a return to 7th century greatness in Arabia. Arabs are not part the Indian Sub-Continent or are Persia.

    If Iqbal was such an anti-colonialist and believed in the Muslim “Ummah” why did he accept a British Title?
