Abstract

The current paper deals with the poetry of Dr. Allama Iqbal, the greatest poet of Indian Sub-continent. He was not the poet of the period but he still lives in the hearts of Indian sub-continent people. Further, he is not the poet of one nation but his poetry is the depiction of different nations with their defined cultures. The current research has been intended to analyze Iqbal’s Poetics and politics in the light of Indian Nationalism and Muslim Ummah. The Paper reflects on the poetry under close reading of Iqbal’s poetry that how he approached two nations Hindus and Muslims, and how his poetry segregates two nations from each other.
