As the Urdu language developed in Mughals time and the official language was Persian, therefore the classical poets of that times used Persian words in their poetry. The main example is Mirza Asad Ullah Khan Ghalib, who was a great poet of that time. Critics believe that his poetry is very difficult to understand due to Persian words. After Ghalib Mir Taqi Mir was another great poet. His poetry is extremely beautiful, simple, and heart touching. Akbar Allah Abadi was known as "Awaami Poet". He pointed out the problems of common man and social issues. So as Hali was. Allah Mohammad Iqbal was another great poet. He felt the pain of Muslims of sub-continent and gave them a direction towards the independent Islamic state. His thoughts led to making of Pakistan in 1947, although he was alive to see it.
