By Bisma Rizwan | 14 May, 2019

TLP had always been vocal against the release of Aasia Bibi, and rallied in support of execution or extrajudicial murder for those charged of blasphemy

Following Aasia Bibi’s acquittal, the clerics ordered the party to stage a violent and disruptive protest, blocking out all major roads  and intersections across the country.

The protests led the government to hold a crackdown, arresting Khadim Rizvi along with 500 supporters in order to “maintain public order,” booked for 11 various cases on charges of treason, inflammatory speeches, violence and vandalism.

The two-member bench, comprising of Justice Qasim Ali Khan and Justice Asjad Javed Gharal, granted the bail to both Rizvi and Qadri till July 15.

With many taking to social media to express their disappointment. 

 

People are questioning the abilities of the Lahore High Court, saying it has become regular to gain bails from there if you fail in all the other courts. 

 

While there are some who are questioning the motive behind Mr. Rizvi’s arrest in the first place. 

 

And then there are some highly problematic statements being made in the support of Rizvi and his release.

 

There are a lot of dangerous fans who’re celebrating the release of Khadim Hussain Rizvi

While it is unsure what the outcome of Rizvi’s release would be, and the next course of action that TLP would be taking. Even though Rizvi officially resigned from the party given his health issues following the bail, but he still stands as an influential figure for all supporters of TLP and may help decide the outfit’s future.
