Allama Muhammad Iqbal and Rabindranath Tegor are the two most great personalities of literature of All India Sub Continent. The excellence and abilities of these two personalities are beyond exceptional. Both belonged to the same age and both have almost faced similar circumstances. Apart from this, both have been brought up in the religious and educational environment. That's why we can find similarities up to some extent in their ideologies and thoughts. But because both belonged to different nationalities, the purpose of their writing was also different. That's why conflict in some of their ideologies is also evident from their works. That's why the purpose of my article is to find similarities and differences between the ideologies and views of these two great personalities.
