TLP is dissolved, as govt approach the apex court! The government on Thursday decided to approach the apex court seeking the disbanding of the TLP after the federal cabinet outlawed the group under the country’s anti-terrorism law.
According to news reports,
“The cabinet show consent to a summary to ban the TLP came in the wake of thousands of its activists and supporters enacting violent protests across the country over the arrest of their leader.

Conferring to the news conference in the federal capital
Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid, escorted by Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Minister Noorul Haq Qadri, explained at a news conference in the federal capital earlier
“We tried our best to solve the issues [with TLP] through negotiations but they had extremely dangerous intentions and weren’t agreeing to go back on their agenda for April 20 [march]. Accepting demands like expelling ambassadors could lead to an extremely difficult situation for the country. All ministers had signed the summary seeking their approval for declaring the TLP a proscribed organization. Under Article 172 of the Constitution (read with Section 112 of the Election Act, 2017), would be circulated among cabinet members so that the reference for the dissolution of the TLP could be filed before the top court.”
