Banned TLP crossed a red line: Moeed Yusuf

In a clear message of the state’s patience running out amid the protests by proscribed Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), National Security Adviser (NSA) Moeed Yusuf on Thursday said that the outfit has crossed a red line.
The NSA cautioned the TLP to be mindful of the fact that there will be “no armed militias of any sort in our country”.The statement from the top security adviser came as the protesters created chaos in Punjab’s cities, with the government holding talks with their imprisoned leader Saad Hussain Rizvi.Yusuf took to Twitter to condemn and warn the TLP protestors for orchestrating extreme violence against the policemen during their protest march.
He clarified that for all the individuals and groups who think they could challenge the writ of the Pakistani state, “do not test the proposition”. “As the basic principle of national security, the state will never shy away from protecting each and every citizen from any form of violence,” he underscored.The NSA said that the proscribed organisation’s protestors had martyred policemen, destroyed public property, and continued to cause massive public disruption.
He warned that the law would take its course for each one of them adding: “and the outlaws will be treated like terrorists with no leniency”.
