People in Pakistan are angry with Prime Minister Imran Khan after he fails to fulfill the demands of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan, a hardline religious group banned recently. TLP supporters burn the flag of Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party in Lahore. Violent protests erupted in cities across Pakistan in which many security personnel and TLP cadres were killed. Things turned uncontrollable after the arrest of TLP chief Saad Hussain Rizvi on April 12. TLP, with its massive following across Pakistan, has been demanding expulsion of the French ambassador from Pakistan. It is opposing publication of blasphemous caricatures in Charlie Hebdo magazine and remarks about Islam and terrorism by French President Emmanuel Macron. Even though the government initially rejected TLP's demand and halted the talks, it now calls for a resolution in the National Assembly to expel French ambassador. The rise of Islamic fundamentalist outfits in Pakistan remains a major international concern.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday urged the governments of Western countries to penalise those deliberately spreading their message of hate against Muslims by disrespecting the Prophet in the same way that they had outlawed any negative comment against the Holocaust. Khan, in a series of tweets said that Muslims cannot tolerate any kind of blasphemy in the honour of their Prophet.

Violent protests reportedly gripped many cities in Pakistan after arrest of the chief of the Tehreek-e-Labbaik party. Saad Rizvi has been leading protests against Pakistan's ties with France after the latter's President Emmanuel Macron made so-called 'blasphemous' comments. Macron had last year defended caricatures of Islamic figure Muhammad. TLP claims that the Pakistan government led by Imran Khan has failed to uphold its end of an agreement which aimed to put before the Parliament demands like expulsion of the French ambassador, and banning of French goods in the country.
