Altab Ali park is on the site of the old white church of St Mary Matfelon, from which Whitechapel gets its name. The park was renamed after Altab Ali, a Bangladeshi textile worker who was murdered by three teenagers on 4 May 1978 in a racist attack as he walked home after work.

A feature of the park is a replica of the Shaheed Minar martyrs monument pictured above (the original is in Dhaka, Bangladesh) and commemorates those killed during the Bengali Language Movement demonstrations in 1952.
