Iqbal established his radio and television network “Punjab Di Awaj” in 1981. His main contributions include production of North-American musical works of Indian and Indo-Canad culture.
Born in India in 1946, Iqbal migrated to the UK in 1963 before finally settling in Toronto, Canada. A mechanical engineer by profession, and a writer and artiste by passion, Iqbal had authored a few books, besides making films and video productions.
“Punjabis abroad are still tuned to their rituals, traditions and rich cultural heritage, whereas, in Punjab, youngsters are more inclined to western habits,” said Iqbal.
