Islamabad: The Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has said that the work of poet and philosopher Dr Allama Muhammad Iqbal, is a source of profound guidance to help the youth as they seek to understand the nature of their own destiny and their religion.

In a tweet on the occasion of Iqbal Day, he said Iqbal talks of discovering the human potential after liberating one's self and soaring like the Shaheen. “Iqbal urges us to be like the Shaheen rather than the vulture which preys on the dead.”

Imran Khan said we must embrace Iqbal's revolutionary spirit, his intrepid imagination, his passionate commitment to social justice and dignity of selfhood.
