The Capital Development Authority has sealed the Sir Syed Memorial Complex in sector G-5/1.

This step has been taken after the decision of the Authority not to extend the lease period and cancel the allotment with immediate effect.

The land was given to the Society in 1988 on a 99 year lease renewable after every 33 years to build a Public Library, a Reading Room, a Museum and an Auditorium for public benefit to honour the memory of the late Sir Syed Ahmed Khan. The Memorial was built by the Society with the aid of private and public donations.

The Islamabad Museum displaying ancient artifacts worth billions of rupees was established in the Memorial Building in 2002.
