Manzur Qadir (28 November 1913 – 12 October 1974) (Urdu: منظور قادر‎) was a Pakistani jurist and politician who served as the Foreign Minister of Pakistan in the military government of Ayub Khan from 1958 to 1962.

He was the son of Sir Abdul Qadir. He married a daughter of Fazli Husain, a political leader of Punjab, British India.

In 1962, Qadir served as the chairman of the constitutional committee which eventually formulated Constitution of Pakistan of 1962.

Manzur Qadir served as the Chief Justice of Lahore High Court from 1962–1963.

View of tolerance and respect

Qadir was a role-model to and a friend of Khushwant Singh - a famous journalist and editor in India. Both friends shared a common worldview of tolerance and mutual respect. In February 2015, this view was endorsed by a panel of guests on a TV show including late Khushwant Singh's son Rahul Singh, Pakistani Senator Aitezaz Ahsan, an Indian writer Shobha De and the son of Manzur Qadir - Basharat Qadir. Basharat Qadir related how Khushwant Singh handed over the keys of his house in Lahore to Manzur Qadir at the time of Partition of British India in 1947 before he left for India.
