The 81st death anniversary of poet and philosopher Allama Muhammad Iqbal is being observed today.

Born in Sialkot, the Shair-e-Mashriq is considered to be one of the most important figures in South Asian literature, with works in both Urdu and Persian.

An advocate of Muslim rights, championing his ideas with pen and revolutionary concepts, Iqbal's word and work remain relevant in the present day.

Some of his best works comprise Asrar-e-Khudi, Payam-i-Mashriq, Bang-i-Dara, Bal-i-Jibril, Zarb-i Kalim and Armughan-e-Hijaz.

Iqbal’s work has been translated in Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, English and several other languages.

To mark the occasion of the poet’s death anniversary, various functions have been arranged to mark the day with special programmes to be aired on the state-run and private radios and TV channels, highlighting various aspects of Iqbal and his poetry.
