LAHORE - Tehreek-e-Labaik Ya Rasool Allah will restart protest movement against PML-N government for what they called its move to tone down the law about the finality of the prophethood from the provincial metropolis today.

“Fill the jails movement” will be started by the TLYR-Jalali faction, ignoring the Sargodha based spiritual leader Pir Hameedudin Sialvi’s announcement for calling off the protest campaign after negotiations with Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

Firebrand religious cleric Dr Asharf Asif Jalali who dissociated himself from Tehreek-e-Labaik of Allama Khadim Rizvi some couple of years ago and led the TLYR faction with his own name claimed the movement will be gradually spread across the country.

Dr Ashraf’s Spokesperson Jamil Baig said hundreds of TLYR’s workers will court arrest at front of Punjab Assembly on Saturday.

In November, 2017, when the TLYR-Rizvi ended its sit-in in Islamabad following resignation of federal law minister, TLYR-Jalali had refused to call off its demonstration at Lahore’s

two points: one in front of Punjab Assembly, on city’s main artery, The Mall, and another at Babu Sabu Interchange of Motorways.  However, after the successful negotiations with Punjab government and on intervention of Pir Hameedudin, he had called off the protest.

Addressing January 20’s gathering at front of Data Darbar, Jalali said the Punjab government had failed to fulfil its pledge and hence the campaign against it will be started from Saturday, on end of the seven-day deadline given to PML-N government for enforcement of Islamic laws across the country and removal of Rana Sana as law minister by the religious clerics spoke on occasion. However, Pir Sialvi called off its campaign after negotiations with Punjab CM who visited  residence in Sial Sharif.

Jamil Baig said Tehreek-e-Laibik stood firm on its demands and would continue its protest campaign from Saturday.

“Khtam-e-Nabowat [finality of the prophet-hood] Movement will continue till the getting of  desired results.”

He claimed the movement enjoyed the support of all known Sunni/Brelvi religious clerics including Sahibzabad Hamid Raza of Sunni Ittehad Council, Pir Sarwat Ijaz Qadri of Pakistan Sunni Tehreek and Allama Abual Khair Zubair of Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan-Noorani.

He said the movement’s first demand was resignation of Rana Sana for “making comments in favour of Ahmadi community.”
