Allama Iqbal thought of nation or Islamic state?

by Allama Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer  
ALLAMA IQBAL IS GREAT ISLAMIC THINKER AND POET WHOM WORDS AND POEMS OF WISDOMS UPTILL NOW QUOTED BY IMAM OF MASJID IN PAKISTAN AND INDIA 

Allama Muhammad Iqbal never thought of a nation state .He always thought of an ideological state based on Islam.Therefore he said:
Apni millat pay qayas aqwam e maghrib say na kar
Has hay tarkeeb main qome Rasool e Hashmee
Unkey Jamiat ka hay rango nasal pay inhisar
Qowwat e mazhab say mustahkim hay Jamiat tairee.

If we will try to make Pakistan a nation state we will never be successful because dozens of nations are living here.Clash of interest between every nation will make Pakistan weaker.Those people who are supporter of Nation state must think that why one part of Punjab is in India,one part of pakhtunhah in Afghanistan.one part of Balochistan in Iran,one part of Kashmir is under Indian occupation.The unifying force which can keep our country strong is only and only Islam.If Islam is excluded disputes between different nations cannot be settled .
