Make a prcis of the following paragraph and also answer the question given at the end.

I am opposed to nationalism, as it is understood in Europe not because if it is allowed to develop in India, it is likely to bring less material gain to Muslims. I am opposed to it because I see in it the germs of atheistic materialism which I look upon as the greatest danger to modern humanity. Patriotism is perfectly natural virtue and ahs a place in the moral life of man. Yet, that which really matters is mans faith, his culture, his culture, his historical traditions. These are the tings which, in my opinion, are worth living for the dying for, and not the piece of earth; with which the spirit of man happens to be temporarily associated. I have been repudiating the concept of Nationalism since the time when it was not well known in India, and the Muslim world. At the very start, it has become clear to me from the writing of European authors, that the imperialistic designs of Europe were in great need of this effective weapon, the propagation of the European conception of Nationalism in the Muslim countries it is going to shatter the religious unity of Islam to pieces. (Dr. Iqbal) Questions: i. ii. iii. iv. v. Why is Allama Iqbal opposed to European nationalism? How does Allama Iqbal compare patriotism with virtues like mans faith, his culture, his historical traditions? How does Allama Iqbal repudiate the concept of Nationalism? Suggest a suitable title for it and make a Prcis of the passage given above. Explain the meaning of the following words: i) Atheistic Nationalism ii) Imperialistic designs iii) Nationalism
