ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has called a meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) tomorrow, citing the deteriorating law and order situation in the nation as a result of a continuous demonstration by the outlawed Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP).
“Prime Minister Imran Khan has scheduled a meeting of the National Security Committee tomorrow in light of the situation emerging owing to the unlawful operations of a banned group,” Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry tweeted on Thursday.
During the meeting, the group will also discuss other national security issues, according to the minister.
The government communicates with the proscribed TLP.
The meeting’s declaration comes as the TLP’s march to Islamabad began on Thursday, with demonstrators entering Gujranwala.
A big number of demonstrators are marching toward Islamabad, calling on the government to free TLP leader Saad Rizvi as well as expel the French envoy from the country. They have been calling for the expulsion of the French envoy because of blasphemous information published and promoted in the European country, which has harmed the sensibilities of millions of Muslims throughout the world.
On the other hand, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has made it clear that no such demand of closing an embassy or expelling an ambassador would be accepted.
However, sources told that another round of talks between the government and the banned TLP is underway in Islamabad.
