In light of upcoming Urs e Mubarak of Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi and encouraging developments on government's progress on paractical work agreed in agreement with TLP, Central Executive Committee (CEC) of TLP decided to shift sit-in from Wazirabad to Lahore again. Namoos e Risalat march set-off for Lahore on Monday evening and reached back Lahore after midnight.
After approval from federal cabinet yesterday, interior ministry has finally revoked its notification declaring TLP as a proscribed organization.
Federal cabinet has signed a circulation summary today, paving way for TLP to out from list of banned organizations. Interior department will now issue a final notification
Anti-terrorism court (ATC) Lahore accepted bail requests for several Majlis-e-Shura members of TLP including Allama Ghluam Ghous Baghdadi, Engineer Hafeez Ullah Alvi and Allama Farooq ul Hassan. Bail appeals were filed for 29 cases and all of them were approved during court proceedings.
Ameer Hussain, uncle of TLP chief, filed a case against Hafiz Saad Hussain Rizvi's detention in July this year on which Lahore High Court (LHC) ruled the detention as illegal on October 01, 2021. However, Punjab government appealed against the ruling in supreme court which remanded case back to LHC. Now, LHC is taking up case when actual 90 days of detention have been passed. So, petitioner withdrew the case which was against a detention which has been completed now.
Punjab cabinet has approved the summary of home department Punjab to remove TLP from proscribed organizations. After provincial approval, Punjab government will recommend federal government to remove TLP from banned parties list.
The case on detention of Hafiz Saad Hussain Rizvi was fixed before a two membered bench of LHC today which was remanded back to high court by supreme court in October. After a short proceeding, the hearing was adjourned till tomorrow. It was expected, after reaching an agreement with TLP, that government will take this appeal and the reference to federal review board back to pave the path for release of TLP chief but it wasn't observed which raised suspicions on intentions of government, once again, about acting upon agreement.
A huge number of people offered the funeral prayer of Ghazi Bakhtawar Ali Rizvi offered in Lahore after Isha prayer. Ghazi Bakhtawar Ali Rizvi was critically injured by police and rangers' firing on Namoos E Risalat march at Batti Chowk Lahore on Saturday, October 23rd. Due to ongoing operation and LEAs denying ambulances to the participants of the long march, he couldn't be shifted to hospital promptly. After botched attempt of vicious abuse of power by governmnet, he was shifted and admitted in Jinnah hospital but left for his immortal life on Saturday (October 30th).
Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman addressed the sit-in in Wazirabad. Peer Syed Zaheer ul Hassan Shah and Allama Dr. Shafiq Ameeni were also released and reached the sit-in. In the address, Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman paid gratitude to all participants of the long march, their parents and relatives. He attributed the popularity of TLP to the sincerity of Allama Hafiz Khadim Hussain Rizvi and the determination of his sons. On the end of his address, Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman directed workers to follow directions of the leadership and move their sit-in to nearby park when asked to do so.
In a statement for press, spokesman of Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan announced that any decision about fate of long march will be made in meeting of Central Executive Committee (CEC) of Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan (TLP). He hoped that steering committee (announced in press conference) will be working efficiently and nation will hear good news soon. He maintained that TLP can never think of chaos in country for which our predecessors gave myriad sacrifices. However, peaceful protest is our legal and constitutional right. He praised everyone who played their role for peaceful talks for the cause of Islam and love of the Pakistan.
Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman, in a press conference along with government and TLP's negotiating teams, announced about government reaching an agreement with TLP. Though the details of the agreement have not been unveiled yet, a steering committee has been formed which will monitor the actions on this agreement. The steering committee consists of ali muhammad khan (head; govt.), raja basharat (member; govt.), home secretary Punjab (member; govt.), secretary ministry of interior Pakistan (member; govt.), Allama Ghulam Ghous Baghdadi (member; TLP) and Allama Engineer Hafeez Ullah Alvi (member; TLP). The committee will be considered functional from today and will be ensuring implementation of the agreement. Allama Ghulam Abbas Faizi (TLP), Mufti Umair Al-Azhari (TLP), Allama Bashir Farooqi, shah mehmood qureshi (govt.), asad qaiser (govt.) and ali muhammad khan (govt.) were also present in the press conference.
So far, we didn't recieve any information about future of Namoos E Risalat long march and nothing was mentioned about it in the press conference either. However, it is being expected that Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman will reach in sit-in Wazirabad and will announce end of sit-in after which long march will be concluded.
Spokesman TLP, in a statement, has warned government to stop activities against TLP's Namoos e Risalat march while engaged in negotiations. He maintained that TLP's long march was paused in Wazirabad on request of government and will not move forward till the process of talks completed. Earlier, government assured that police will refrain from any activity against TLP but it has started arresting TLP workers in Wazirabad which in condemnable. He told that government is planning to carry out an operation against TLP after negotiations which will have worst aftermaths. He asked government to abide by what agreed during talks.
TLP issued a press release in which it is told that a three membered government's negotiating team including shah mehmood qureshi, asad qaisar and ali muhammad khan met with TLP's CEC members. TLP's delegation was comprising of its detained chief Hafiz Saad Hussain Rizvi, imprisoned CEC members and negotiating team. After the sitting, government's team headed for a meeting with PM for the approval of demands. After which a final sitting is expected in today's evening.
A delegation of more than 20 prominent scholars, including Peer Syed Haseen ud Din Shah, is trying to diffuse the situation. However, the government's attitude towards them is not encouraging and apparently it seems like government is not willing to act upon even a single clause of its agreement with TLP. 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. This shows the flexibility of TLP and its willingness to diffuse the tensions but seemingly government needs a dangerous clash between the nation and state institutions anyway.
Allama Syed Sarwar Saifi, member Central Executive Committee (CEC) TLP, clarified in a video message that government is reluctant toward talks and nobody contacted TLP for last two days. He mentioned that TLP's negotiating team was called in Islamabad who reached there two days ago but didn't hear anything from government after reaching there. Government is making false statements about negotiations on media channels and the whole responsibility of any exacerbated situation will be on government.
Many religious and political organizations have called for protest/demonstrations after Friday prayer, against government's behaviour towards Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan. The protests against government are not only being reported within country but seen other countries too. A protest was staged before Pakistani high commission London by British Pakistani community yesterday and a letter of protest was handed over. The protest by Pakisatni community in UK is still going on and the next demonstration is at Town Hall, Blackburn today at 2:00 PM (BST).
During a talk show on an private TV channel, sheikh rasheed implored to forgive him over the fawad chaudhray's comments about TLP. Remember that minister of broadcasting and information termed TLP as militant group yesterday and blamed that it was getting foreign funding. It clarified that the press conference of fawad chaudahary was amalgam of fabricated and baseless allegations against TLP.
PEMRA banned 'BOL News' on coverage of Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan's march. We appreciate efforts of management of BOL News for airing neutral and true facts before the nation. We condemn this action of pemra.
On one hand, government is engaged in talks with TLP's leadership while its practical work so far supports the opposite. Here is what government did today against TLP;
British Pakistanis and overseas from all over the UK staged a protest before london high commission of Pakistan against behavior of Pakistani government in context of Namoos e Risalat march. The speakers asked government to act upon its agreements with TLP rather than declaring it proscribed or militant group. The participants were holding placards with the pictures of innocent people martyred by police and rangers since the start of the Namoos E Risalat march.
وزیر اعظم اور چیف آف آرمی اسٹاف سے مطالبہ— Mufti Munib ur Rehman (@MuniburRehman55) October 28, 2021
مفتی اعظم پاکستان مفتی منیب الرحمٰن
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. Honorable Sami Ibraheem, honorable Arif Hameed Bhatti, Dr. Shahid Masood, Ansar Abbasi, Kamran Shahid, Mehr Bukhari, Dr. Danish and many other analysts warned government about its absurd move to declare TLP as extremist group and asked for a peaceful solution of the issue. During the talk shows, PTI representatives had no justification to declare peaceful TLP as terrorist group when PTI urged nation for civil disobedience, attack on parliament and PTV buildings in 2014.
Various bar associations across the country has called for protest against government's vicious use of force against Namoos e Risalat SAW march en-route to Islamabad. On the other side, Lahore hall road and Ichra bazar was closed right after Sadhoke operation and traders protested against the operation. 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.
The sit-in in Karchi, for solidarity with TLP's long march, is being targeted by police and rangers and straight bullets are being fired by forces.
Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan issues another press release over allegations by sheikh rasheed on fallacious bases
Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan, in its press release and request for news tickers, rejected the baseless allegations against TLP and asserted that TLP believes in peaceful struggle. Here are the points made by TLP spokesperson;
After cabinet meeting today, anti-Islam PTI government decides to deal Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan as militant group which is against constitution of Pakistan. Nobody could prove even a single weapon possession by any TLP worker. Government said it was facing a lot of foreign pressure in this regard and will deal TLP as militant group.
Forces are continuously firing straight bullets from back of the Namoos e Risalat march at Sadhoke. Tens of participants have embraced martyrdom while thousands of them are injured. Whole nation requested to come out for the cause of Namoos E Risalat now. People especially from Muridke should come from back and disperse the forces who are continuously opening fire on peaceful participants.
Police and rangers have attacked Namoos E Risalat march from all sides. Helicopters are being used for firing on TLP's long march too. Whole nation is requested to be on roads. People from Gujranwala and Kamoke are requested to come from back of the forces.
As Namoos E Risalat march is approaching Sadhoke, cellular services in the nearby area has been suspended too. There are corroborated reports of heavy contingents of forces at Sadhoki while tear gas shelling on march from back has already been started. Everyone is requested to join Namoos E Risalat march for the noble cause.
Police and rangers has started firing tear gas shells on Namoos E Risalat march from back as march appraches towards Sadhoke. There were reports that forces would try an operation from both back and front at the same time.
Central Executive Committee (Majlis-e-Shura) of TLP, in a video message, has clarified that nobody contacted them for talks today while interior minister mentioned that in a press conference that he would. Majlis-e-Shura said that rather there are corroborated reports of another operation against the long march. If forces do so again, whole nation is requested to come on road and start protest.
Government is once again stepping back from agreement with TLP and preparations of operation are in full swing. Police prepared for stopping the long march in police lines Lahore and a huge number of buses were seen transporting them to Muridke. An estimate of 15000 police personnel is heading towards sit-in along with Rangers. Moreover, government has dug the GT Road from multiple places and has bulldozed the fence of Jehulm river. 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.
Allama Sarwar Siafi, in another urgent video message, conveyed to whole nation that TLP has opened the roads for traffic but government has blocked traffic from both sides of sit-in and digging out roads from multiple places on GT Road to Gujranwala. He alerted the whole nation that government may carry on another operation with suspension of internet in whole country. So, the whole nation should remain alerted and move towards Muridke long march in case of any odd actions from government such as suspension of internet/cellular services in whole country or another attempt of use of force.
Allama Sarwar Siafi, in an urgent video message, has warned all concerened departments that govt. is not removing blockades causing miles long traffic queues. It shows the malicious intention of government of reneging on what was agreed in Saturday's negotiations. He maintained that government should act upon what they committed and the sit-in would be concluded peacefully. 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. We receieved reports of police raids yesterday too. Spreading sand on Chenab river bridge and blocking Jehlum river bridge are also among corroborated news reports after Saturday's talks.
Allama Sarwar Saifi warned government to avoid creating chaos in country and act upon its agreement with TLP Centrat Executive Committee (Majlis-e-Shura) yesterday. He asserted that government is placing containers and digging roads to stop march towards Islamabad. "If you are sincere do act upon agreed terms, and if you are not then you have tested us already," Allama Sarwar Saifi reminded the government.
Leader of Namoos e Risalat march, Allama Sarwar Hanfi Saifi, has announced that TLP's long march will stay where it is (Muridke) till Tuesday evening amid negotiations with government. Last night, six to seven hours long talks took place between government and TLP's negotiating committees. Government asked for three days to fulfill agreed demands and TLP agreed not to move forward meanwhile. Government has started removing all the blockades but the GT Road closure will remain in place due to sit-in at Muridke. Sit-in will be concluded if Allama Saad Hussain Rizvi and all other arrested members of Majlis-e-Shura come on stage and announce it till Tuesday evening. Otherwise, the long march will resume its way to Islamabad if government renege on the agreement this time again.
In a viral video on social media, it can be seen that the road is being digging out to stop movment of Tehreek Labbaik Paksitan's Namoose E Risalat march towards Islamabad. Remember that government is prevailing "talks drama" on the other hand.
Amid government's negotiation committee looking for talks with TLP now (after brutal use of force for a botched attempt to stop the Namoose E Risalat march), TLP's Central Executive Committee (Majlis-e-Shura) reiterated that negotiations is not on the cards unless Hafiz Saad Hussain Rizvi comes in the long march and he himself will held talks with government.
TLP's Namoos e Risalat long march once again faced very severe firing of tear gas shells and straight bullets for nearly three hours near Rana town. March was still there till 2:00 PM trying to clear the route from three layered and stacked filled containers. From the spot, Allama Sarwar Hanfi Saifi released a video message in which he questioned why the unarmed peaceful participants are being targeted with bullets. He told that more than 10 participants have embraced martyrdom, hundreds are severely injured with dozens of those who's organs/body parts have been wasted. He mentioned that "someone" threatened them yesterday that 'if you'll step forward from [a particular] point, we'll open an indiscriminate fire' and same happened with the march. He said that he was not mentioning the name of person who threatened, but he'd if needed.
Firing of Straight bullets and prolific use of stun grenades and tear gas shells couldn't suppress zeal of participants of Namoos E Risalat march and it has now crossed Ravi river bridge and Shahdara Chowk.
TLP's Namoose E Risalat march is once again attacked by Rangers at Batti Chowk Lahore. Forces are once again firing straight bullets and three more martyrdoms can be confirmed with hundreds of injured again. A very huge contingent of forces is deployed there and using bullets, bombs and tear gas against Namoos e Risalat march. LEAs have crossed all limits of brutality and hand grenades were thrown on long march. All people from Lahore are requested to join and back the long march.

Interior ministry of Pakistan has directed PTA to block Internet services in areas of Lahore where TLP's sit-in is arriving. Government seems to conduct a police operation against the long march from ring road bridge near Ravi river.
Central Executive Committee (CEC) of TLP has said that there thousands of workers are severely injured and several has embraced martyrdom as a result of vicious use of force by government against TLP Namoos E Risalat march. He asserted that now only Hafiz Saad Hussain Rizvi will negotiate with government. "Government called us for negotiations and fired bullets on our workers meanwhile;" says CEC TLP.
During stay at shrine of Hazrat Data Ali Hajvery, senior member of Central Executive Committee of TLP Allama Sarwar Hanfi Saifi has conveyed his messgae to everyone that they should come with TLP. With several workers lying down on container, he told that several workers have embraced martyrdom and hundreds are severely injured. Government is viciously using force against Namoos e Risalat march. So every Muslim should stand for Islam and cause of Namoos e Risalat and come with us. Lahoris should reach now and more people should join from other cities and towns when march reaches to their areas.
Two police men struck by their own institute's vehicle and died. Maliciously government is blaming Namoos e Risalat march participants for their death but it was already clarified by some sources that the poor personnels were hit by police vehicles.
Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan's Namoos E Risalat long march has reached shrine of Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh Ali Hajvery R.A.
Police and Rangers are firing worst tear gas shells on peaceful Namoos e Risalat march in Lahore enroute to Islamabad. Purportedly deployed forces fired bullets as well due to which many workers got critically injured. This is happening near Chaburji where LEAs trying to oppress peaceful unarmed participants of TLP. Remember that all this started on order of IG Punjab rao sardar ali khan. Forces started firing bullets and tear gas shells from both front and back of the Namoos e Risalat march. More than 15 workers are confirmed critically injured.
16:48 - First point of blockades cleared by workers. Now the march is taking break to offer Asar Prayer and will resume after prayer
Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan's million march leaves for Islamabad after Jummah prayer. Before setting-off, Allama Sarwar Hanfi Saifi directed participants to remain peaceful and co-operate with police personnel.
Friday prayer has been offered and final arrangement are being set up. Namoos e Risalat march will leave for Islamabad soon but the route to Islamabad has many blockades on the way. Police has placed hundreds of filled containers on the roads. These containers are rather fixed on roads with the help of screws.
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.
Federal interior minister, sheikh rasheed, has left Pakistan on Thursday night amid TLP's long march. Apparently, he left to watch cricket match in dubai but analysts believe in contrast.
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.
Central Executive Committee (CEC) of TLP announces a peaceful long march towards Islamabad after deadline given to government to act upon April agreement passed. According to the announcement, the march will set-off for Islamabad after tomorrow's Jummah prayer from Jamia Masjid RehmatulilAlameen, Multan road, Lahore. CEC has invited public of Pakistan, workers and leadership of TLP to participate in peaceful Namoos e Risalat Long March.
Yesterday Lahore police was high alerted and deployed around TLP's sit-in and today reports are evolving that additional contingents from all over the Punjab have been called in Lahore and deployed around sit-in, entry and exit points of the city. Though the interior minister said that no action would be taken against peaceful sit-in but ground realities convey something else.
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.
Interior ministry of Pakistan has directed PTA to block Internet services in areas of Lahore where Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan is staging the sit-in. Government seems to conduct a police operation against the sit-in (details in thread below).
We are recieving reports about police preparing to carry out an operation to end TLP-sit in. All the main routes to and from Scheme Mor and Yateem Khana Chowk have been closed by police. Furthermore, vacations of Lahore police have been cancelled immediately and all officers and personnel have been called back on duty with a high alert.
We are getting several reports of police raids and barging in houses of leadership and workers of TLP in various cities. These reports are coming out after TLP announced and staged a peaceful sit-in yesterday demanding government to act upon April agreement and release Hafiz Saad Hussain Rizvi. Remember that central executive committee of TLP has already directed all workers to reach Lahore last week which still holds true.
We are recieving reports about police preparing to carry out an operation to end TLP-sit in. All the main routes to and from Scheme Mor and Yateem Khana Chowk have been closed by police.
Due to government's dumbness towards court orders and reneging on agreement with TLP, Central Executive Committee (CEC) of Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) has announced sit-in while addressing to closing session of rally of Eid Milad un Nabi SAW. The sit-in is being staged outside central secretariat Jamia Masjid Rehmatulilalameen, Mulatn Road Lahore.
