Why Iqbal chose Rumi? – Saturday, August 15

The question has often been asked but the material required to properly address it had never been collected in one place as it has been in the recently published Iqbal: Tashkeely Daur. This workshop enables the participants to discuss the question and arrive at their own conclusions based on evidence provided in the workshop.


  1. Would it be possible for you to provide some sort of a summary of the workshops for those who were not able to attend?

  2. Dear, IS Blog totally consisted upon summaries of sessions.
