Spokesman TLP, in a statement, has warned government to stop activities against TLP's Namoos e Risalat march while engaged in negotiations.

A delegation of more than 20 prominent scholars, including Peer Syed Haseen ud Din Shah, is trying to diffuse the situation.

A meeting of this delegation was scheduled with prime minister yesterday who didn't meet and directed them to president first. Later last night, the delegation was briefed about whole situation for around four hours. After which the meeting with PM was rescheduled for today. Though TLP's leader mentioned that nobody contacted them for talks after reaching Islamabad, TLP has paused its long march in Wazirabad till the outcome of efforts of this delegation.

Notable journalists/analysts question how can TLP be deemed as militant group on organising a long march when ruling PTI did the same back in 2014

There is an uproar on media against government's move to declare TLP as militant group. Many notable journalists and analysts questions declaring TLP as militant group on organising a long march when ruling party PTI did the same and staged a 126 days long sit-in back in 2014.

Numerous lawyers and traders unions call for protest against government's use of brutality

In a video message, convener Karachi traders action committee has demanded government to stop use of force, go on talks table with TLP and act upon its agreement with TLP.

If TLP's stance was wrong, then why did government sign agreement thrice with TLP to expel french ambassador?

Now, government says that it couldn't expel french ambassador and TLP's demands are undoable, then the question is why did government sign agreements thrice with TLP through its federal ministers. Firstly, interior minister, minister for religious affairs and deputy commissioner signed an agreement with TLP on November 16, 2020 where government agreed to expel french ambassador after debate in parliament within three months. Later, government asked for extension in deadline and signed another agreement on February 11, 2021 which was announced by prime minister of media channels. On April 20, government signed another agreement with TLP where it vowed to held a voting on resolution of french ambassador in parliament. Now, TLP is just demanding government to act upon its all three agreements which have same demand in principle but government is now declaring a peaceful third largest political party as a militant group. Interestingly, minister for broadcasting and information mentioned that this party has no weapons like militants group. But its amazing that government is still declaring it as a militant group.

ANALYSIS: TLP's first and foremost demand is not to expel french ambassador. Does government want to frame the problem as exacerbated issue?

Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan is not demanding the expulsion of French ambassador as a demand of this long march. The demand is to discuss the resolution in parliament and held a voting of parliamentarians on it. Whatever the parliamentarians will vote for, TLP is ready to accept that. Since government knows that voting against expulsion of french ambassador in parliament will ruin their dirty politics in name of Islam and thus they're reluctant to held that. So, government is just trying to frame the problem as exacerbated issue that TLP is demanding the expulsion of French ambassador which is not true.

15:30 - ALERT: Thousands of police and rangers personnel heading towards Muridke, Syed Inayat ul Haq Shah says today sheikh rasheed was reneging on agreement

Syed Inayat ul Haq Shah, member of Central Executive Committee (CEC) of TLP who met with interior minister yesterday and was very hopeful, is also dismayed after today's meeting with sheikh rasheed. He told that government is again reneging on the terms agreed with TLP on Saturday. He warned the people from all of fields of life to remain alert as government is again planning vicious use of force. He requested scholars, lawyers, doctors and people from all fields of life to come forward for the cause of Namoos E Risalat SAW.

Remember that, the actions of government after the negoiations are not in line with what they agreed on during talks with TLP central exceutive committee on Saturday.

07:00 - TLP didn't blocked the roads but surely the government did

Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan, since staging its sit-in, didn't block any road other than the two way from Scheme Mor Chowk to Yateem Khana Chowk. However, government has disrupted the traffic in much larger circumference with filled container fixed on roads with screws to stop the long march. Furthermore, same scenes can be seen on route to Islamabad and at Faizabad, Islamabad. Commuters are facing a lot of problems due to these blockades but remember that these are all caused by government, not by Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan.

23:00 - False FIR against TLP leaders and arrest of Allama Abdul Sattar Saeedi

We have recieved a copy of FIR registered against leadership of TLP and many others including Allama Abdul Sattar Saeedi. FIR is registered on complaint of station manager of Band Road orange line metro station which narrates that leadership of TLP alongwith 40/50 unknown armed people attacked on metro train station, fired bullets, kept staff hostage and looted the money from there. Allama Abdul Sattar Saeedi is also among the nominated people along with Allama Sarwar Hanfi Saifi, Qazi Mehmood Awan, Hafiz Anas Rizvi, Mufti Umair Al-Azhari, Allama Ghulam Abbas Faizi, Mufti Wazir Ali Rizvi, Mufti Abid Raza, Allama Syed Ahmad Shah Bukhari, Allama Asim Ashfaq Rizvi, Allama Safdar Ali Rizvi and many others including lawyers. Interestingly, the time of incident is reported as 7:15 PM on October 20 when many media channels and digital content creators were present at the spot and no one witnessed, aired or quoted this incident which actually never happened. According to a crime reporter, even office of SP Iqbal Town didn't know any such FIR when contacted for comment on this and no arguments were made by them. It clearly shows that this is an absolutely false FIR and depicts government's malicious intentions.

13:00 - "We can't expel french ambassador at the cost of severing ties with european union (EU);" says interior minister sheikh rasheed

Interior minister, sheikh rasheed while talking to journalists after police passing out ceremony, said that government couldn't expel french ambassdor on TLP's demand and it'd cost severing ties with whole EU. This is the same narrative we saw back in April. Remember that, its government who is trying to map this protest again to expulsion of french ambassador. While TLP just demanded to act upon the agreement government did with TLP in April. The agreement included the debate on ambassdor expulsion in national assembly and releasing all workers and leaders of TLP with wiping out all cases against them. However, the resolution was tabled in parliament but never debated and proceeded forward again. TLP, though called off sit-in after tabling of resolution as per agreement but government didn't release its leadership and hundreds of workers since then.
