Minar-e-Pakistan (Urdu، مینارِ پاکستان), which literally translates to "Tower of Pakistan" in Urdu, is a public monument in Iqbal Park Lahore, Pakistan, which was built in the 1960s to commemorate the Lahore Resolution. The tower is constructed on the site where, on 23 March 1940, seven years before the formation of Pakistan, the Muslim League passed the Pakistan Resolution (Qarardad-e-Pakistan), demanding the creation of Pakistan. This was the first official declaration to establish a separate homeland for the Muslims living in the Indian Subcontinent.
