TLP ends Lahore sit-in as govt accedes to demands

Lahore (HRNW) The outlawed Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan has ended its sit-in outside Lahore’s Rehmat-ul-lil-Aalimeen mosque, a party leader announced Tuesday evening.

The government has accepted the TLP’s demand and tabled a resolution on the expulsion of the French ambassador, TLP leader Maulana Shafiq Ameeni said.

It has also ordered the release of TLP chief Saad Hussain Rizvi and arrested workers, Ameeni added.

The National Assembly passed a resolution condemning the blasphemous caricatures in a French magazine, mere hours after the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan and government reached an agreement after talks Monday night to tackle the violence that had broken out.
