Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan has announced that they are ending sit-ins across the country as the government agreed to put Aasia Noreen’s name on the Exit Control List.

In a press conference Friday night, the TLP leaders told their supporters to end sit-ins and disperse peacefully.

However, the protesters warned that “there will be a war if they send Aasia Noreen out of the country”.

The TLP and other religious parties such as the JUI-F and Sunni Tehreek reacted badly to the October 31 acquittal of Christian woman Aasia Noreen in an eight-year-old blasphemy case.

According to the five-point agreement, the government will initiate the legal process to place Aasia Noreen’s name on the ECL and won’t object to the review petition filed by the litigants.

Noorul Haq Qadri, the federal religious affairs minister, and Punjab Law Minister Raja Basharat were signatories to the agreement from the government’s side.

Qadri confirmed that the government has reached an agreement with the TLP leaders. “We can talk to anyone in the national interest,” he said.

The government will immediately release all the protesters arrested on October 30 and after that, the agreement said. The TLP leaders will apologise for issuing ‘painful’ statements and hurting the sentiments of the people.
