In Response To: Re: The independence of Pakistan (Hassan Nisar, Lahore)

Hasan Nisar, your statement, reflecting dogmatic certainty, is an exhibition of folly. Please don`t make such categorical statements as this mentality is the enemy of intellectual growth and adventurous spirituality. Below is the reference you need in order to grow out of your self-imposed fallacy:

An excerpt from Allama Iqbal`s The Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam (Stanford University Press, California, 2012, p. 142):

"Let the Muslim of today appreciate his position, reconstruct his social life in the light of ultimate principles, and evolve, out of the hitherto partially revealed purpose of Islam, that SPIRITUAL DEMOCRACY which is the ultimate purpose of Islam" (emphasis added).
