What happened: Tens of thousands of Muslims, from Pakistan to Lebanon to the Palestinian territories, poured out of prayer services to join anti-France protests last Friday. In Pakistan these anti-French protests were mainly organized by the recently born religious political party; TLP.
Khadim Hussain Rizvi is the founder and president of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan, who has declared ‘jihad’ against France on social media.
Last week followers of the radical Islamic Tehreek-e-Labbaik party celebrating the Mailad Nabi, the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad, took to the streets. They chanted anti-France slogans, raised banners and clogged major roads en route to a Sufi shrine.
What’s next: Khadim Rizvi recently announced that their political party will be hosting Namoose-e-Risalat march on Saturday. March is supposed to start from Airport Road to Mazar-i- Quaid.
Just a side note: Khadim Rizvi is facing charges for inciting violence and civil unrest at Faizabad Interchange, 2017. Anti-terrorism court recently called for action under the order of Supreme Court of Pakistan.
