In November 2020, the TLP had staged a sit-in in Islamabad against the publication of blasphemous caricatures in a French magazine. The group ended its sit-in after the government signed an agreement, assuring that Pakistan won't appoint its ambassador to France and the French ambassador to Islamabad will be expelled within three months. The agreement was subject to a consensus in the parliament.
