TLP never asked to expel French envoy: Mufti Muneeb

TLP never asked to expel French envoy: Mufti Muneeb

The proscribed Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) never wanted the government to oust the French ambassador, Mufti Muneebur Rehman said Monday.

He refuted the government’s claim that it was one of the TLP’s major demands.

The religious leader said people will see the proscribed group re-emerge as “a major political force” very soon.

“The TLP had never demanded the expulsion of the French ambassador or the closure of the French embassy.”

He said lies were spread on television about the negotiations with the TLP.

“If they keep on lying in public, how do they expect trust to be established?” he questioned, claiming that those who took part in the negotiations did not have political or personal agendas and were true patriots.

Moreover, he called the whole negotiation process a “marathon intellectual exercise”.

Muneeb was among the clerics who aided talks between the proscribed group and the government, assisting both sides to an agreement after an impasse of two weeks.

The religious scholar urged the protesters to adhere to the directions of their leadership after an agreement was reached with the government.

“We have to do whatever the leadership asks us to do.”

He said the government had assured of removing restrictions from the party.

“The government has promised that they will take one week to erase the word ‘proscribed’ from the TLP,” Muneeb added.

Meanwhile, residents of Islamabad and Rawalpindi breathed a sigh of relief as the administration opened all roads for traffic after a 13-day closure following an agreement with the banned group.

The barricades and containers have been removed from roads between Rawalpindi and Islamabad. The Metro Bus service has also been restored in Rawalpindi, where life returned to normalcy.

It merits mentioning that the protesters are still present in Gujranwala – where all educational institutes and markets are closed.
