Finally the radical religious party — Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) — is banned, thanks to those who have formed it.
One wonders as why the TLP was formed. Perhaps the very idea was to ‘catch a thief’ there was a need to set a thief.

Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Wednesday announced that the government had decided to ban under the anti-terrorism law the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), whose supporters and workers have been carrying out violent protests across the country for three days after the arrest of their chief.

In a tweet, he said the religiopolitical outfit would be banned under the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA) Rule 11(b).
Rashid said the Punjab government had recommended a ban on the organisation, for which a summary was being sent to the federal cabinet.

One wonders that they first used these religious extremists against their political opponents and once this outfit grew into a monster and started challenging the power centre they decided to ban it.

Lesson: The powers that be must learn a lesson that it should not use in future religious parties to achieve it’s vested interest. As the masses are ultimate sufferers in such a scenario. PAK DESTINY
