In 1929, Ilmuddin killed a man called Rajpal for writing a blasphemous book against Muhammad. He was later hanged by the British government.

According to several sources (like here), the national poet of Pakistan, Iqbal, himself placed Ilmuddin’s body in the grave and gave a short eulogy.

I cannot find any reliable source to authenticate this claim. What was the eulogy, and did Jinnah also attend the funeral?

Edit: I'm looking for sources written by academics and professional historians. Even popular columns written by historians would do
