Pakistan Monument: replica

Published: August 11, 2017

MAKKAH, SAUDI ARABIA: I recently visited Islamabad and my hosts took me to see Pakistan Monument. I was told that this was a unique design representing the provinces of Pakistan. I wish to share with my Pakistani friends that the design of Pakistan Monument is a copy of a monument in An Nuzhah neighbourhood in Makkah. The designer of Pakistan Monument must have visited Makkah and seen our beautiful monument. I am surprised that nobody in Pakistan has pointed this out considering so many Pakistanis visit the holy city every year.
