The federal government agreed on Wednesday to suspend the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan for inciting violence in the region, following the arrest of the party’s leader, Saad Hussain Rizvi, by Lahore police this week.
According to info, while speaking to the media, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said that Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan would be banned under the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1997.
According to the study, ‘TLP demonstrators incited abuse, snatched weapons from police, and shot.’
“We are forwarding a summary to the Federal Cabinet in order to place a moratorium on the TLP,” Sheikh Rashid said, adding that the government “stands by the agreement reached with the party.”
Rashid said that the FIRs filed against the demonstrators were all filled in accordance with the rules.
Saad Hussain Rizvi was arrested on Monday in Lahore, just hours after calling for a march on the Federal Capital on April 20 to demand the removal of the French ambassador.
Residents in various cities around the country became stranded in traffic as a result of the violent demonstrations against Saad Rizvi’s detention.
According to the TLP, the current government claimed that it was unable to enforce the agreement and asked the TLP leadership to cease demonstrating.
