Before partition of India and Pakistan, Lahore made a name for itself in politics on 23rd March 1940 where under the leadership of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, a resolution was passed for an independent country for the Muslims of the subcontinent. To commemorate the event, Minar-e-Pakistan, a monument 60 m tall in the shape of a minaret, was built at the site in Iqbal Park where the resolution was passed.
