He clarified the difference between West and East from Iqbal’s point of view and declared western science as our lost asset. He said that there came a time when we fell asleep and these sciences of ours were taken away by the westerners, we became careless, and they started to advance our sciences. Prof. Fateh Muhammad Malik said that a joint struggle is required to make this country, as conceived by Quaid and Iqbal. Muhammad Rafiq Tahir said that the spirit of love and devotion to Allama Muhammad Iqbal is present in all the eastern countries. If there is less somewhere, that’s in Pakistan.
