We welcome TLP into national mainstream, said Ali Muhammad Khan

Terming the current deal between the proscribed Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) and the government a “temporary solution”, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ali Muhammad Khan said that the proscribed organization will accept Parliament’s decision on the issue of the French ambassador’s expulsion from the country.
Ali Muhammad Khan said that both sides have decided to keep the agreement secret for some time due to certain reasons.
Details of the agreement will come to light within seven to 10 days, he said, hinting at the release of TLP chief Saad Hussain Rizvi in a few days. The minister said that the government’s negotiation team struck a deal with the proscribed outfit after receiving a nod from Prime Minister Imran Khan.
“The state struck a deal with its people to restore peace in the country,” he added.
“Did those people, who were opposing the deal, want to see another incident of Lal Masjid in the country?” he asked.
He said that the agreement was not a victory or defeat of any individual, but a victory of Pakistan. The minister said that anti-Pakistan elements did not want peace in the country. He said that they wanted bloodshed and another incident of “Lal Masjid” in the country.
