All educational institutions have been reopened today across the Punjab province.

Tehreek-e-Labbaik protests had shut down all private and government educational institutions.

The Faizabad sit-in ended after Khadim Hussain Rizvi made an agreement with the government as the federal government agreed to their terms and demands.

Punjab’s Education Secretary Dr Allah Baksh Malik announced yesterday that all schools in Punjab will be reopened and directed the public to use alternative routes to schools where sit-ins are still continued.

While citing the reason for shutting down schools for two days in the first place, he said the schools were closed because state was going through a sensitive situation of deadlock and roads were utterly blocked due to Faizabad sit-in and ensuing chaos caused by the protesters countrywide.

However, right-wing movements have continued sit-in protest outside Punjab Assembly while demanding the resignation of Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah, despite leaders of religious parties calling off Faizabad sit-in after 22 days of agitation.

Chairman of TLYRA Ashraf Asif Jalali has expressed serious concerns over the agreement and has warned to continue the agitation until demands of the rightist group are met.
