Spiritual Democracy

The innovative solution for individuals, organizations
and governments

    A 3-hour workshop by
    Khurram Ali Shafique, Winner of the Presidential Iqbal Award for Iqbal: an Illustrated Biography (2006)

Iqbal categorically stated that the ultimate ideal of Islam was spiritual democracy. He did not explain the concept because he didn’t need to. Back in 1930, the concept was widely understood not only within the Muslim world but also outside – especially in America. It goes to the credit of the subsequent generations that they have completely obliterated this cherished ideal which had been upheld by so many cultures as the only hope for their future – i.e., our present.

The purpose of this workshop is to show that the ideal has survived in Pakistan against all odds, and can be redeemed for achieving spectacular success personally, socially, politically and globally.

In this three-hour workshop, we shall try to understand the concept of spiritual democracy through interactive exercises based on the writings of Iqbal, Mary Parker Follett, C. R. Das, Waheed Murad and many others.

Rediscover spiritual democracy from primary sources and regain hope.

Date: March 30, 2013. 
Timings: 3-6pm. 
Location: Ahsan Memorial, 201/O Block 2 PECHS, Karachi.

SoIS: A Series of Workshops on Iqbal

posted Nov 20, 2010, 4:50 AM by Irfan Hyder   [ updated Mar 14, 2013, 10:15 PM ]

Society of Iqbal Studies (SoIS) series of workshops is typically conducted on a Saturday or Sunday. Details of the workshops of the upcoming workshops are given on these pages. SoIS members would be pleased to know that the program the series has again been started after the return from sabbatical of Mr. Khurram Ali Shafique from UK.

Previous SoIS Events

SoIS workshops started with nine questions raised by Iqbal in Gulshan e Raaz e Jadeed (Zabur e Ajam) and nine books of Iqbal which were covered in detail in a series of workshops. Khurram Ali Shafique in his distinctive style interprets the links between each book collection of Iqbal and each of the nine questions. Each workshop highlighted the themes and distinctive style that Iqbal used for each of the collection. Of particular interest is his connection of past events with the emerging future. Each work of Iqbal and his thought is living and inspiring the events occurrence in the future. These links are explored in detail in these workshops. 

The idea of "consensu literature" that inspires the people vs literature that promotes despondency and disillusionment is a central theme through which Iqbal, Rumi, Nizami Ganjwi and others of the past are linked with influentials like Hasrat Mohani, Zafar Ali Khan and Maulana Mohammad Ali Jauhar during pre-partition, poets and literati like Hafeez Jullandri and Agha Hashar around partition and new genres like films of Waheed Murad and detective fiction of Ibne Safi in the post partition period, in a wonderfully architected thesis distinctive of Mr. Khurram Ali Shafique.

First session in this series was on Asraar e khudi. The discussion then got extended and spread over four sessions. Followed by another four sessions on Ramooz e Baykhudi. There had been several other programs related to or inspired from Iqbal's conception of history, culture and society specifically dealing with the role of literature and political narratives in building consensus among the masses by directing their energies and thinking towards positive aspects of life and inspiring them and giving them confidence in their abilities and potential.
