by Pakistan - پاکستø§Ù† November. 09, 2007 7110 views

The Minar-e-Pakistan (Urdu: مينارِ پاكستان) is a tall concrete unique minaret in Iqbal Park in Lahore, Pakistan. Its height is about 60 meters or 198.5 feet. The name can be translated as Minaret of Pakistan, Pakistan Tower or Pakistan Column. Now it is officially recognized as the National Monument of Pakistan. This is the site where on March 23, 1940, seven years before the formation of Pakistan, the Muslim League passed the Lahore Resolution, which is now referred to as the Pakistan Resolution. This was the first official declaration to establish a separate homeland for the Muslims living in the subcontinent. The government and Pakistan now celebrate this day as a national holiday each year under the name of Pakistan Day. - wiki [en.wikipedia.org]
