I conducted a workshop with Social Studies teachers and trainers in Lahore on Saturday, May 29. The following is a report of that workshop by Manzoor Malik in Dawn (published on May 31, 2010).
THE Association for Social Studies Educators and Teachers (ASSET) in collaboration with Iqbal Academy on last Saturday organised a “Movie and workshop session on Allama Iqbal” at the Idara-i-Taleem-o-Aagahi main office.
Facilitated by Iqbal Academy Pakistan’s research consultant Khurram Ali Shafique, the session included Iqbal’s concept of Pakistan and a few tips for looking at history and Pakistan Studies in the light of his ideas.
Iqbal’s greatest work ‘Javidnama’ was also introduced at the session and the participants were enlightened with seven stages of personal development, found through the works of Iqbal.
At the session, excerpts from the Allahabad address: Iqbal’s concept of Pakistan and Iqbal’s poems for children were also discussed.
