Zafar Anjum invited by India Club Singapore to give a talk on Allama Iqbal


iqbal frontKitaab’s editor Zafar Anjum has been invited by India Club, Singapore to give a talk on the poet and philosopher, Allama Muhammad Iqbal.

Zafar Anjum is Singapore-based India-born author of books in multiple genres.

“At our event on May 1st, he will read and discuss his two major works published in the past half-year — a celebrated biography of the poet Iqbal (the composer of Sare Jahan se Achchha, a leading Indian intellectual of the 20th century, an ardent Indian nationalist who later became an advocate of Muslim separatism and so has been largely forgotten in India) and his business/innovation best-seller, Startup Capitals: Discovering the Global Hotspots of Innovation,” India Club said in a statement. Both the books have been published by Random House India.

India Club is known for inviting thought-provoking writers and leaders of Indian origin. The club’s recent invitees include M. J. Akbar, Salil Tripathi and Vinod Rai, among others.
