ISLAMABAD: The outlawed Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) on Thursday approached the interior ministry seeking review of the government’s April 15 decision of banning it over countrywide violent protests.
Outlawed TLP submitted an appeal to the ministry, requesting it to revisit the decision to ban the party.
Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed has called an emergency meeting on April 30 (tomorrow) to discuss the matter.
Earlier, the federal government had decided to impose a ban on the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) under the Anti Terrorism Act.
While addressing the media, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said: “Today we have decided to ban TLP and this will go to the cabinet for approval.”
“A single political party cannot lay claim to the matter of Namoos-e-Risalat as it is an issue close to the hearts of all 200 million people of this country,” Rashid said.
“We are forwarding a summary to the Federal Cabinet to impose a ban on the TLP,” Sheikh Rashid added.
