Despite the havoc of Corona, a large number of people have taken to the streets in Protest in Pakistan. Many cities, including the capital Islamabad, were set on fire and vandalized. Even the policemen were run and beaten. After all, what is the reason behind this? Who is the person whose arrest caused such anger that people came out on the streets with weapons? The person at whose behest, Pakistan’s entire law and order system collapsed. Prime Minister Imran Khan is also seen in front of him often. The name of that person is Saad Rizvi.
Tehreek-e-Labbak (TLP) The new Chief of Pakistan and the son of Khadim Rizvi, a radical and influential leader of Pakistan. Khadim Rizvi died in November last year, after which his son took over the responsibility of the organization. Saad Rizvi was arrested by the police after raiding his house, after which his supporters opened fire all over Pakistan.
Why was Saad Rizvi arrested
Saad Rizvi’s organization has been continuously protesting about the controversial cartoon printed by Mohammad Prophet in French magazine Sharley Hebdo. They demand that the French ambassador be removed from the country. Last year, there were protests all over Pakistan led by Saad Rizvi’s father Khadim Rizvi. In February, the Imran Khan government also expressed confidence that the ambassador would be sent from the country. But it did not materialize. Saad Rizvi had threatened that if the government did not fulfill its promise, there would be demonstrations again. For this reason, he was arrested.
Thousands of supporters of radical Khadim Rizvi
Khadim Rizvi was like other radical leaders of Pakistan. But TLP was never found involved in any terrorist activities. It was believed that he was hit by Corona due to participating in the demonstration in November last year. Because of this, he died. However, no official confirmation of this could be made.
Discussion came from an incident in 2011
Until 2011, no one knew Khadim Rizvi. But after the murder of Governor Salman Taseer of Punjab province, he suddenly came into the headlines. Taseer was killed by his bodyguard. Then he stood in support of Tasir’s killer Mumtaz Qadri. He claimed that it was necessary to kill Taseer because he supported Aasia Bibi, a Christian woman who blasphemed.
Protestant attitude against blasphemy
Like his father, Saad Rizvi also has a staunch attitude towards blasphemy. This organization is not even allowing changes in blasphemy laws and often manages to put pressure on governments. When Mumtaz Qadri was hanged in February 2016, there was a violent demonstration in Islamabad under the leadership of Khadim Rizvi, in which three people were also killed.
