Pak surrenders to radicals, to current decision on French envoy’s expulsion


Islamabad/Lahore, April 20

Pakistan’s government on Tuesday announced that a resolution would be introduced in Parliament on the expulsion of the French ambassador and quash all cases filed against the banned Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) as it reached a deal with the radical Islamist party.

“Under a marathon round of talks and an agreement reached with the TLP, a resolution on the expulsion of the French ambassador will be presented in the National Assembly,” Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid said. The cases against TLP workers, registered under terrorism charges, would also be quashed.

The expulsion of the French ambassador is one of the main four demands of the radical Islamist party, which was banned last week after its members staged violent anti-France protests. — PTI
