Govt to put leaders of banned TLP in ATA’s fourth schedule: Report


Police are collecting details of TLP’s leaders & activists through social media and other sources

A day after the federal government’s ban on the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan, Islamabad Police have begun collecting details of TLP leaders and activists in order to place them in the fourth schedule of the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA). As per reports, the police are identifying and tracking TLP’s leaders and activists in various cities with the help of social media platforms. Senior police officers have stated that they are working with the CIA, CTD, and Special Branch to carry out the mammoth task of tracing the office-bearers of the politico-religious party in the country.

On Thursday, the government formally proscribed the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan for engaging in terrorism and disturbing the peace and security in the country. In a notification issued by the Interior Ministry, the government said that TLP “engaged in terrorism, acted in a manner prejudicial to the peace and security of the country.” The government also invoked section 11EE of the Anti-Terrorism Act against TLP leaders to place them in the Fourth Schedule as proscribed individuals.

Over the past three days, the police have detained more than 100 TLP leaders and activists. Officials are now interrogating the detained leaders to obtain information about other members of the party. As soon as the list containing the details of TLP office bearers and activists such as their names and addresses is completed, it will be sent to the chief commissioner’s office for placing the names in the fourth schedule of the Anti-Terrorism Act.

In addition, federal authorities are also looking into properties, tax records, and other financial details of TLP office bearers and activists. As per a Dawn report, all properties of the proscribed party in Islamabad will be confiscated when the list of its leaders and activists is finalised.

The Fourth Schedule is a list that contains the details of proscribed individuals who are suspected of terrorism and/or sectarianism under the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997.

Tens of thousands of TLP workers and activists took to the streets in major cities across Pakistan on April 12 protesting the arrest of their chief Saad Hussain Rizvi. Due to the violent protests, main roads in cities like Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, and Rawalpindi were blocked, causing inconvenience for thousands of commuters. In response, the Imran Khan government on Wednesday decided to ban TLP and launch an operation to disperse the protesters. Furthermore, the government is going to approach the Supreme Court seeking the dissolution of TLP for creating violence in the country. Reportedly, more than 100 FIRs have been registered against TLP workers and over 2000 party workers have been arrested by police in different cities.
