The government built the beautiful Greater Iqbal Park one-and-a-half years ago. Thanks to rallies of every other party, the park has become a garbage dump.

“We thought the park would be beautified further,” said one man. “But it’s becoming worse with each passing day.” Another said that the government should dedicate a separate space for political gatherings.

Uprooted trees and broken lights lie strewn about in Minar-e-Pakistan’s surroundings.

In recent days, Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Jamaat-e-Islami held their rallies at the park. Horticulture authorities imposed fines on the parties for the damage to the park.

Minar-e-Pakistan holds historical significance for Pakistan as the All-India Muslim League is said to have passed the Lahore Resolution here. The resolution became the foundation for the movement of Pakistan’s independence. A large number of people visit the park as it is one of the most important sites in Lahore.
