TLP ends sit-in on condition of French ambassador’s expulsion

Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) has ended its march in Islamabad after a midnight announcement by its leader Khadim Hussain Rizvi.

He addressed participants of the march after his group’s leaders signed an agreement with the government’s negotiation team.

The agreement with the TLP leaders was signed by Interior Minister Ijaz Shah, Minister for Religious Affair Noor-ul-Haq Qadri, and Islamabad Commissioner Aamir Ahmed.

According to a written agreement shared with SAMAA Digital by Khadim Hussain Rizvi’s son Saad Rizvi, the government will ‘expel’ the French ambassador within two to three months with a consensus from parliament.

Under the agreement, the country will not post an ambassador to France and French products will be boycotted on the government-level.

The government has also agreed to release all arrested TLP workers.

Imran Siddiqui, the spokesperson for the religious affairs ministry, told SAMAA Digital that Interior Minister Brigadier (retired) Ijaz Shah, Minister for Religious Affairs Noor-ul-Qadri, and Advisor to PM Khan Shahzad Akbar held talks with TLP leaders and convinced them to end the sit-in.

Mobile phone signals in Islamabad and Rawalpindi have been restored as of 10:50pm.

Nine people, including four policemen, were injured in clashes between law enforcement and members of the TLP on Sunday night.

No critical injury has been reported. The protestors vandalized the Metrobus near Rawalpindi. The Deputy Commissioner for Islamabad said that the Islamabad Expressway from Zero Point till Khanna Bridge will stay sealed.

“Everyone is requested to please use alternate routes. Apologies for the inconvenience. We are trying our best to clear the route,” DC tweeted.
