Dear uncle, I concur with you. "Hero-worship" (the divinization of the finite) is a sure way to destroy the creative freedom of the human agent, thus closing up the paths of novel enterprises in various departments of human activity.
Dr. Muhammad Iqbal was not the mentor of Mr. Manzoor-ul-Haq but of Ghulam Ahmed Parwez. I apologise for not being clear in my earlier post.
May you be in process.
Love and peace from Oslo
