Current Situation of TLP
As you know the government had asked Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan for two days that all your demands will be implemented within two days.
Two days have passed but there has been no positive response from the government.
The government had asked for two days and asked Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan to open all avenues. We will follow your demands and try to meet them. That the government then closed the roads by placing containers around the protesters and digging trenches in the streets.
Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan workers and leaders have been staying in Muridke and waiting for the government, but the government has not responded positively, so now it will make its decision.
The spirit of all the workers of Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan is very high and everyone is saying that we have left our homes for the honor of our Prophet and if our demands are not met then we are reaching Islamabad. On the way, of course, our lives will be lost or our necks will be cut off.
What does Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan say now?
The biggest demand of Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan at the moment is to expel the French ambassador from Pakistan or to introduce a bill in the parliament that the French ambassador will be expelled from the country.
The government had said it could not issue a ticket to the French ambassador and would take the matter to parliament we will agree with what Parliament decides.
The leader of Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan said that we will not take up the issue after whatever decision is taken by the parliament.
What is the government doing now?
The government had asked for two days and told Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan that we would review all your demands and try to resolve them.
The government is also reneging on the agreement that is made.
The Turkish government has expelled ten ambassadors, including the French ambassador, while the Pakistani government has not been able to expel a French ambassador.
Sheikh Rashid said that there is a lot of pressure on us. European countries, all European countries stand by it. Sheikh Rashid Sahib, you should fear Allah and not France.
Sheikh Rashid said that if we take the issue of the French ambassador to the parliament then the opposition will not support us If she is not agreeing then you can say that we took this issue to the parliament but the opposition did not find a solution.
Press conference of Interior Minister Shaikh Rasheed
Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid said in a press conference that we stand by the agreement we had with Tehreek-e-Libek Pakistan but there is nothing we can do about expelling the French ambassador.
Sheikh Rashid said that the biggest demand of Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan is that the French ambassador and French embassy should be removed from the country but there are many problems in it.
He said that we are the biggest nuclear power of Islam and conspiracies are being hatched against us in the world and France is leading the European countries.
And all the countries of Europe stand with France.
If we remove the ambassador of France, many problems will arise. Pakistan’s economic situation is not right already and if we remove the ambassador of France, there will be more problems.
Sheikh Rashid had said in the previous conference that when Prime Minister Imran Khan will come back, I will put all the issues before him, I will talk to him and then we will see what the decision is.
Statement of Imran Khan about TLP
The meeting was held in Bani Gala under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Imran Khan and was attended by Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, and Usman Bazdar, and other ministers.
Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan is a banned party and no concession or cooperation will be given to it and asked Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid to talk to Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan and tell them. Even if you leave your place and go back home, you will still have negotiations with the people.
Statement of TLP
Leaders of Tehreek-e-Labeek-e-Pakistan (TLP) say that the government should fulfill what it has agreed with us which is not fulfilling. Why was?
“We will not return until the government releases our leader Allama Saad Hussain Rizvi and he comes to our protest and makes a statement,” he said.
The leaders of Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan said that we are not fighting, we are still talking peacefully and if the government still negotiates with us and assures us that our demands will be met, we will stop here.
Next step of TLP
Leaders of TLP said that after Fajr prayers on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, we will leave for Islamabad, and inshallah our number is increasing.
He said that 27 of our men were martyred in the last protest and this time our 12 men were martyred. The government is oppressing us. We are still ready for talks but the intention of the government is not right. So we will not stop.
He said that one of the members of the negotiating committee announced from outside that the talks were over and the matter was over, so you did not listen to anyone.
He said that whether it is Mufti Umair Sahib or Mufti Wazir Sahib or Allama Ghulam Abbas Faizi Sahib, if he is not present here, then you should not believe anyone. Of course, our leader Allama Saad Hussain Rizvi Sahib should also announce it. Even if a video clip of him comes from outside, you still don’t believe anyone.
We will not return until a return announcement has been made.
The TLP members say that apart from the agreement they made with us, they have no additional negotiations with us.
Sheikh Rashid and his leadership have made it clear that we cannot remove the French ambassador. If we remove him, there will be pressure from Europe and sanctions will be imposed on Pakistan.
Sheikh Rasheed said that we did not want the dollar to reach 250 rupees and Pakistan’s nuclear payments were all gone, we can not tolerate all this.
Besides, Sheikh Rashid has said that the rest are Islamic countries. None of them protested or did any such thing, so why should we do all this?
The TLP is saying two things, one is that our leader should be released because we have come with orders from the court, yet he is not being released, the other is that this is being said. That the French ambassador is expelled from the country. But the government is not releasing Saad Rizvi because the government says that we are under international pressure. If we release Saad Rizvi then the situation in the country may deteriorate and your international relations may deteriorate.
It is also worth noting that when the government had agreed with the TLP that we would also expel the French ambassador and release Saad Rizvi following a court order, then what was the government sleeping on? It was he who is now coming to his senses
