However, a day ago PM Imran Khan’s Twitter account misquoted Allama Iqbal’s Poem and left us wondering who operates it!

“This poem by Iqbal reflects how I try to lead my life. I urge our youth to understand and absorb the poem of the great Iqbal and I guarantee them that it will release their great God-given potential that we all possess as His greatest creation Ashraf ul Mukhluqat”, says the caption on the tweet with an image of the poem.
