Testimonies – Sir Muhammad Iqbal

He held this opinion for most of his life, but the last few years of his life saw a shift in his opinion. The reasons seem to be political more than religious. Ayesha Jalal has given a very interesting account of Iqbal’s political interests and his change of heart in her wonderful book Self And Sovereignty: Individual and Community in South Asian Islam since 1850
