Happy Pakistan Day


It was the decisive day of March 23, 1940, when Pakistan Resolution (Lahore Resolution originally) was passed in general session of Muslim League at Iqbal Park (Manto Park originally), Lahore. It was this day that provided a direction to thousands of Muslims of sub-continent to move into. And it was this resolution that translated into creation of Pakistan on August 14, 1947.

Keeping the current state of affairs in our beloved country in view, the day happens to be a saddening one. What it was meant to be, and what we have got it into?

    *Manto Park = Minto Park

    *Minto Park = Manto Park :)

    As in Saadat Hassan Manto

    Minto Park is a different place.

    I can be wrong but I think Iqbal Park was previously called Minto Park after the Governor General of India, the Earl of Minto. Minto was more known for Morley-Minto Reforms (India Council Act, 1909). Lord Minto also served as the GG of Canada and hense the other Minto Park named after him there.

    Saadat Hasan Manto might not have lent his name to the park.
