After the arrest of Hafiz Saad Rizvi, the leader of Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan, the workers of TLP have started protests all over the country.
Bone of Contention between TLP and Government
The reason for the arrest of the TLP leader is that he had announced a protest against the government for violating the agreement reached with the government of Pakistan during the protest against the blasphemous sketches of the Last Prophet of God, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in France. The government is reluctant to expel the French ambassador as per the agreement because if the government takes this decision, it is feared that Pakistan’s relations with the rest of the European Union will deteriorate.
On the other hand, the government cannot tolerate protests from Tehreek-e-Lubaik Pakistan. Because the closure of the country will pose a great threat to the country’s doomed economy, which the Prime Minister of Pakistan Mr. Imran Khan is working day and night to fix.
French Extremism against Muslims in France
On the other hand, the chain of Islam and Muslim hostility in France is not coming to an end. There, French President Emmanuel Macron’s anti-Muslim rhetoric has encouraged militant and extremist elements and increased their actions against Muslims.
Extremist non-Muslims in France set fire to two mosques at night, a day before the start of the Muslim month of Ramadan. As a result, the religious sentiments of Muslims have increased.

On the other hand, sit-ins and protests by religious organizations are also going on in different cities of the country due to which traffic has been jammed on major highways and long queues of vehicles have formed.
According to the Motorway Police, the highway from Rawalpindi to Lahore is closed at 10 places while the highway from Lahore to Okara is closed at 4 places.
Shortage of Oxygen in Hospitals
Ambulances were also stuck in traffic jams in different cities, making it difficult for patients stranded in traffic to reach hospitals.
According to sources, various hospitals in Lahore are facing shortage of oxygen, which will end by morning. This will cause severe problems to the patients suffering from Corona virus and will also endanger their lives.
