    LAHORE: Leader of Tehreek-i-Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah (TLYRA) Ashraf Asif Jalali on late Friday announced to clear Lahore’s Mall Road and called off protest across the city after signing an agreement with Punjab government to end 7-day long sit in.

    Ashraf Jalali called off seven-day-long sit-in that has been hampering daily life in the city after signing an agreement with the government, asking his followers and supporters to disperse.

    Soon after the announcement the sit-in protesters have left the Mall Road and other areas of the city where sit-ins were taking place. Whereas, the administration cleared roads from containers and other hurdles to restore the traffic.

    Jalali demanded to make public the names of those responsible for the controversial amendment to the Finality of Prophethood declartion, in the Elections Act 2017.

    According to the agreement, the report of the Raja Zafarul Haq led prob committee will be published by December 20, 2017.

    As per agreement, religious scholars will be included in the panel assigned to decide changes in the textbook board.

    He claimed that the government had provided him a list of those who were martyred, injured and arrested during the protests across the country.

    While leaving the matter of Rana Sanaullah's resignation upon the renowned religious figure Khawajha Hameeduddin Sialvi, He added that a committee will be formed with regard to the resignation of Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah.

    He further said that Punjab Law Minister should have given his explanation regarding his controversial statement coming to the protest camp instead of seating abroad.

    While addressing his supporters and followers, Ashraf Jalali said that an agreement has been reached with the government, on which, the government will implement within a month, adding that if it fails to meet the demands they will recall the protest.

    So the Government accepted all the demands of the Protesters.

    Included in it the use of the Loud Speakers of the mosque.

    Thanks to our Media and our Politicians and Army, now the Nation will enjoy many hours of mosque loud speakers.

    Another demand also accepted that no Education Curriculum would be approved without the acceptance of Ulama.

    Whose turn is next?

    How about all the unmarried people who don't want to get married protest for a temporary moratorium on marriage.

    Or

    How about if the feminists get together and protest that everyone above 18 should have vasectomy?


    This matter is far from over. It needs to be addressed and the government should do that otherwise those in the parliament will have to apply for asylum.

    No type of NRO will be tolerated.
