History of Development
Muslim Town, Lahore holds a distinctive history, dating back to 1915 when the town was established by Dr. Syed Muhammad Hussain, son of Syed Alim Shah. The area where Muslim Town is situated was mainly a Hindu-majority neighbourhood of Lahore during the early 20th century, and Muslims were allowed to own a property there. To counter this exclusivity, Hussain purchased plots of agricultural land along the Lahore Canal and designed a residential neighbourhood for Muslim homebuyers. It was initially known as Islamabad but was renamed to Muslim Town following the suggestion of Allama Muhammad Iqbal.
Subsequently, Hussain built a house of 40 kanal for himself and donated plots of several sizes to his friends and relatives. Apart from the Syed family, many other esteemed families such as Faqir Family and Faruqi Family reside here. At the same time, various renowned artists, writers, and celebrities from the media industry were the early settlers of Muslim Town. Ustad Allah Bakhsh, Abdus Salam Khursheed, Agha Talaash, Abdul Majeed Salik, Maulana Muhammad Ali (English translator of the Quran), Maulana Ghulam Rasool Mehr, Allauddin, Sabiha Khanum, Santosh Kumar, Tanvir Naqvi, M. Suleman, Nayyar Sultana Darpan, Riaz Ahmed and Malika Pukhraj are a few to name.
