The religious scholars from different schools of thought have strongly condemned the ongoing violent protests by Tehrik-e-Labaik Pakistan (TLP), describing them as immoral, inhumane, un-Islamic and unconstitutional.
Referring to different Islamic injunctions, the Ulema believed that killing and injuring the police officials, road blockades, violence and disruption of normal life in the name of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and for fulfillment of their demands was in no way permissible by Islam.
In their video messages, they were unanimous in the view that violent protests and attacks on the personnel of army, police or other security institutions, who provide masses with security and protection, should in no way be allowed by the government.
