Worst scenario: TLP use their newfound recognition to galvanise even more people into their ideology. Millions of young people without jobs or a future due to financial inequality and corruption are perfect raw recruits for their movement.
Best scenario: TLP political leadership messes up big time once mainstream losing support from the masses.
There is no denying that the TLP mindset has a lot of support amongst the lower strata of our society. It's the Pakistani equivalent of the BJP/RSS. If hate filled rhetoric and politics can be so profoundly popular in our neighbor countries then how can we be an exception.
Further much as it disgusts me to say but they have a right to establish a political party even though their rise will probably cause irreversible damage to our country's cohesion, image and economy for the foreseeable future.
I agree. Some of these kids on this forum are needlessly shitting thier pants.
1. We choose to be a democracy. Democracy is the dictatorship of the majority. If this is what the majority want them who are we to object.
2. I remember in 2002 when the wahhabi and deobandi parties formed the MMA. What did they achieve? Control of KPK. They were so bad people voted in ANP 5 years later. Since then they're a non entity.
This is Pakistan. In its history people know what the Mullah truly is. Nobody trusts them. A handful of idiots will vote TLP, they might win a few seats, they'll screw it up and dwindle into non existence. Much like the previous version Sunni Tehreek which has existed since 1990.
How many of you who have diarrhoea about TLP ever worried about Sunni Tehreek? I bet none of you. Why? Because religious parties in Pakistan are non entities - protest votes at best.
