Islamabad: The radical Islamic organisation Tehreek-e-Lubbek (TLP) in Pakistan has put the Imran Khan-led government to sleep. The organization placed before the government demands that anyone could hear and hold their heads. TLP staged violent protests across the country to meet their demands. This has resulted in a loss of Rs 35 billion (Rs 3500 crore) to the country's economy, said Hassan Khawar (Hasaan Khawar), special assistant to CM Imran in Lahore.
Tell us that Pakistan is already facing financial crunch. Being on the grey list of FATF, the country is also facing difficulties in borrowing. Hassan Khawar further said that an additional loss of Rs 4 billion has already been caused due to protests by TLP and blockade of roads. Local media reports said that due to closure of roads, fruits and vegetables could not be supplied to the markets. Food items were rotten lying in trucks. Four policemen have also been killed and nearly 250 injured in firing by TLP protesters.
According to media reports, Amid growing protests, Pakistan's National Security Advisor Moid Yusuf had said that banning TLP had crossed all limits. Tell us that the radical organization has been performing in the country since 2017. During this time public property and business activities were greatly damaged. Due to this, there has been a loss of Rs. 35 billion.
