Altab Ali Park on Whitechapel Road is named in memory of a 25-year-old Bangladeshi man who was murdered in 1978. Shortly after his death, 7,000 people marched on Trafalgar Square to demand better police protection for local minorities. The murder of Altab Ali, says Professor Parvati Nair, brought to the fore a deeply entrenched fight for political and criminal justice among the Bangla people.
