In a newly surfaced letter, purportedly written by the chief of the banned Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), Saad Rizvi has called for an end to the ongoing protest outside the outfit’s Masjid Rehmatulil Alameen headquarters.
“The sit-in outside Masjid Rehmatulil Alameen must immediately come to an end,” Rizvi wrote, in a note addressed to the shura arkaan (council members), dated April 17, a copy of which Geo.tv has seen.
“The workers must return peacefully to their homes,” Rizvi said.
He added that the council members must surrender themselves to the law as “owing to their stubbornness, hundreds of workers, as well as the general public, have been suffering”.
The TLP chief said that the call for a protest on April 20 must be taken back.
TLP naib emir Syed Zaheerul Hassan Shah was tasked by Rizvi to expedite the implementation of his directives.
