I like some of Iqbal's poetry, but I intensely dislike him for advocating creation of Pakistan, and for preaching pan Islamic nonsense e.g. in his poems Shikwa and Jawab-e-Shikwa. He throughout supported that rascal and British agent Jinnah ( that rascal Gandhi, too, was a British agent ).
Iqbal was elected president of the Muslim League in 1930 at its session in Allahabad, in the United Provinces as well as for the session in Lahore in 1932.
In his presidential address on 29 December 1930, Iqbal outlined a vision of an independent state for Muslim-majority provinces in northwestern India:
"I would like to see the Punjab, North-West Frontier Province, Sindh and Baluchistan amalgamated into a single state. Self-government within the British Empire, or without the British Empire, the formation of a consolidated Northwest Indian Muslim state appears to me to be the final destiny of the Muslims, at least of Northwest India."
