Pakistan: Punjab govt's request forced to revoke ban on TLP

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 15 Nov 2021, 06:58 pm

Islamabad/IBNS: The Imran Khan-government in Pakistan recently lifted a ban on proscribed hardline Islamist group Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) in line with the “secret agreement” it had signed with the group on Oct 31, media reports said.

The move was made following violent protests by the TLP to press for the release of its chief Saad Rizvi.

The notification in this regard was issued by the Ministry of Interior on Sunday, a day before a meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on National Security to be held in the National Assembly in which the opposition members are expected to raise the matter, reports Dawn News.

According to the interior ministry, the notification has been issued at the Punjab government’s request, the newspaper reported.

According to sources, the Punjab government had assured the TLP that it would release its chief on Monday (Nov 15), while a TLP spokesperson also confirmed to Dawn that the government would release him on Monday.
