    Iqbal is a GAY name..

  10. on Saturday 21st of April 2018 03:32:45 PM

    i agree with the above comment i have seen many who hold this name has gay personality/tendencies, & depressed or either has some kind of mental illness.

    Even Allama Iqbal is bloody gay; he had an illegal gay relationship with Ali Jinnah… Later Pakistan government erased all evidences. Some historians consider Allama Iqbal as a schizophrenic because he was paranoid about Hindu population outnumbering Muslims and they’re going to take over the world.

    iqbal only famous in pakistan ! sure he is delusional. islam always has a way of justifying mental illness with religious beliefs. after all the founder of islam is delusional too so it doesn’t matter much in muslim world

    TBH Not a good name. Most of them Drug dealers/Pimps/Anti-hindu extreme Islamists/Corrupt politicians

  14. on Sunday 6th of May 2018 07:51:33 AM

    Ya myb not dat gud name, bt a lucky name. I’ve seen many, they realy do wel in religion, politics, brothel business, drugz n arms smuggling & distribution business . Politicianz & religious mentors r highly influenced by allama iqbal, but nwdayz countriez like India use media & celebrities to shift the next generation of iqbals towards entertainment industry .

  15. on Tuesday 8th of May 2018 11:32:52 AM

    Its just not iqbalss it targets all next generation;;; It’s a global movement backed by feminist movement lgbt nd other organizations nd other movements working with Hollywood, celebrities, famous figures media to achieve political social nd environmental change. Perhaps it’s possible to encourage Iqbals towards entertainment becuz Alama iqbal nd those who follow him are masculinist nd Islamic Supremist in nature;; For country like India heavily depends on medias, celebs, bollywood nd role models to control its uncontrollable mass population. Fox example recently notably the Indian Prime Minister narendra modi is a predesigned puppet role model;; somE political analytic establish proofs that USA president Donald trump too is a puppet backed by feminist movement

    I see loads of Gays as well Usually Gay people support feminism that makes them feminist

  18. on Monday 14th of May 2018 11:17:01 PM

    Doesn’t apply 2all.

    majority of you referring individual or related to: – ”koreans indonesians malaysians singaporeans sri lankans philippines maldivians” they culture, attitude and individuals little bit differ compared2 [pakistani, indians, bangladeshis, which is the origin of ALLAMA IQBAL]

    Those people suffer from serious mental illness. They need anti-psychotics, counseling & CBT. Islam religion use faith as tool to mask their followers mental illness. If the prophet Muhammad was alive today, probably he would have been sent to psych ward & psychiatric hospitals would have been filled with his companions & followers. Luckily he & his companions lived in a different time. Instead now days those of his mental ill followers end up in prison or blown themselves or shot by a cop.
    Saudi Arabia busy educating and spreading scholars, printing religious books, sending dates. They might also need to consider sending anti-psychotics as well.

    Fuckoff u all kafirs!!! “Islam is perfect Muslims are not ! asshole” these iqbals brought shame to Islam & degraded our Muslim community. Do u know how much our prophet Muhammad (PBUH) bled & cried for us? This is how you pay back?? Allah gave us honor through islam even though prophet Muhammad (PBUH) & Sahaba & we Muslims are lunatics with many diseases that universe has to offer; in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find peace!. Please don’t expect to be jihadist you’ll not be rewarded as a shahid! Jihad is not a place for people with small dicks! Sorry we can’t put you in our we put we won’t look like Holy Warriors, we look like Holy Gays! Don’t try using steroids to bulkup cuz it doesn’t mean you have big dick. No matter the enemies will easily detect your small dick.. slip few dose of poison to your food drowning you steroid bulk body to Jahannam without saying good bye to your mama. Do you know people like ismail menk, zakir naik working hard day & night to bring people to our already sinking Islamic ship? You just made very hard for them now cuz of your stupidity now they have to beg & scream like a wild dog to invite people to Islam! Stop! Please for the sake of Allah & for the sake of your brothers & sisters of Islam please leave Islam and do whatever you want to do cuz its better for you & better for Islam. Jazakallah Khayr!

    yeh, its k to leave Islam f you feel you can’t practice it.
    ISLAM is the noblest religion on earth. it’s a gift from allah to the mankind, similar to the color purple. Even street beggars in ISLAM believe they’re descendants of Saudi royal family house of Al Saud. So you know how noble we’re.
    If you’re happy with ISLAM practice it fully 100% otherwise it’s an insult to ISLAM nd the prophets.
    Or leave ISLAM completely nd find your own LUCK nd PROSPERITY
