Govt notifies lifting ban on TLP, releases central council leaders

Implementing the agreement, the federal government Sunday issued notification of lifting the ban on the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP).

According to the 24News HD TV channel, the government lifted the ban after the cabinet’s approval on a circulation summary moved by the Interior Ministry at the request of the Punjab government.

The interior ministry had banned the TLP under Rule 11-b of the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997.

After lifting the ban, the TLP would now be able to do political activities while seized accounts of the party were also likely to be restored in a couple of days.

It has been mentioned that TLP would respect the rule of the law in future and would not create any Law and Order situation.

On the other hand, the government has also released the leaders of the TLP central council including Allama Farooq ul Hassan Qadri, Allama Ghulam Ghous Baghdadi, Engineer Hafeez Ullah.
