The proscribed Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan filed a review petition on Thursday with the secretary of interior against the ban imposed on it for countrywide rioting earlier this month.
The government has reportedly called a meeting today to deliberate on the matter. Nearly a week ago, on April 21, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid said that the organistion had 30 days to challenge the ban.
“The writ of the state is intact and it is not under anyone’s pressure,” Rashid told a news conference, a day after the TLP called off its nationwide protest following a deal with the government negotiated by a group of religious scholars and spiritual leaders.
