In this paper I have analyzed the practices of colonized intelligentsia that how they contribute in liberal movements by contest the colonial legacies in the mindset of their nation. Strategies of colonized intellectuals are also focused on in what way they invest their passions to make conscious their nation. In this regard it will also analyze that how intellectuals of colonized nation revive their glorified and dignified past. I will use the framework of post colonialism. Frantz fanon’s assumptions will be used as a theoretical background. These assumptions will be applied on Iqbal’s poetry regarding nationalism.
