The Tehreek-i-Labbaik (TLP) Pakistan chief, Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi, who launched the election marketing campaign from Karachi yesterday evening mentioned he noticed no competitors to his social gathering candidates within the elections.
Sitting in a wheelchair, Rizvi, whose legs are paralysed, mentioned his social gathering’s manifesto is identical as that of Islam’s teachings to create a very Islamic welfare state in Pakistan.

The social gathering has fielded candidates on all of the nationwide meeting and provincial meeting seats from the town.
Huge visitors jams had been witnessed in and across the airport space because the TLP chief travelled in a convoy surrounded by 1000’s of supporters from the airport to the town.
The little identified TLP got here into prominence in November final 12 months when its followers led by Rizvi converged at Islamabad and Rawalpindi and staged a sit-in demanding sacking of the then Regulation Minister Zahid Hamid and strict motion in opposition to these behind the modification to the Khatm-e-Nabuwwat oath within the Elections Act 2017.
The modification had modified the wordings of a clause regarding a candidate’s perception within the finality of the prophethood of Prophet Muhammad, which is submitted on the time of election by candidates, turning it right into a declaration type as an alternative of an affidavit, which places a candidate underneath oath.
Hamid resigned after violent clashes broke out between the TLP supporters and safety forces which had left a number of individuals lifeless and a whole bunch injured in Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
The modification was later deemed a ‘clerical error’ and was rectified by the PML-N authorities which restored the Khatm-e-Nabuwat declaration to its unique type.
