On 14 April 2021, the interior minister announced plans to ban the far-right Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) party under the Anti-Terrorism Act, pending approval from the Cabinet, amid ongoing protests organized by the TLP following the arrest of the party’s leader on 12 April. During the demonstrations, TLP supporters blocked roads in major cities and frequently clashed with police officers. At least four people have died in the unrest, and hundreds more have suffered injuries; hundreds of protesters have also been arrested. As of 14 April, most roadways in major cities have been cleared, and authorities have deployed additional security personnel to major cities throughout the Ramadan period in an effort to maintain security.
