Pakistan bans radical Islamist party amid widescale protests

Apr 14, 2021 20:02 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Pakistan on Wednesday banned a radical Islamist party under the Terrorism Act after its supporters clashed with the law enforcement agencies for the third consecutive day leaving seven persons dead and over 300 policemen injured.

Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said that at least two police officials were killed and 340 injured in clashes with the protestors during the last two days. There were media reports that at least two protestors were also killed.

The TLP had launched the country-wide protest on Monday following the arrest of its chief Saad Hussain Rizvi ahead of April 20 deadline the Islamists had given to the Imran Khan government demanding expulsion of the French ambassador for publication of caricatures of Prophet Muhammad.
