Satan's Advisory Council By Allama Iqbal

Satan's Advisory Council
The sum and substance of Satan's view point by Iqbal is that the Muslim is the real enemy.he is the spark that can at any time burst into a blazing flame and destroy the entire system.wisdom, therefore demands that all their resources and energies should be directed against the chief adversary, and if he cannot be annihilated he should, at least, be pulled into a state of complacency and self-satisfaction.
the poem start with an address by Satan in the course of which he remarks:

       the old game of elements, this lowly world,
       graveyard of hopes of the dwellers of ninth heaven.
       towards its destruction the lord, today , is inclined,
       who had called it the world of be, and it is.
       i showed the frank the path of imperialism,
       the spell of church ,mosque and temple i broke,
       to the pauper i taught the cult of fate,
       and the wealthy the craze of capitalism i gave,
       who can cool down the blazing flame,
       in whose furry is the inner heat of Satan?
       whose branches be high with our watering,
       those ancient tree who can uproot?
Satan's Advisory Council in Urdu 
After the inaugural  address the first advisor submits that no one can doubt the stability of the satanic order  which has firmly established  its hold on the king and the beggar alike. their  hearts have grown so insensitive that desire is never born in them, and, if it aver is, it quickly dies or changes into a wishful dream........
