TLP, govt express dissatisfaction over agreement to end protests


Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Noorul Haq Qadri said that only the higher court can order an individual’s name to be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL), a local media outlet reported on Saturday.

He explained that only those who are currently involved in cases or review petitions could have their names placed on the ECL, adding that Aasia Bibi’s name could only be placed on the list upon court directives.

Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) leader Farooqul Hassan Qadri expressed dissatisfaction with the matter, saying that the government had promised to put Aasia Bibi’s name on the ECL when the agreement was reached.

He added that if the government did not fulfil its commitments, roads across the country could be blocked again.
