International Christian Concern | Nov. 24, 2018

Authorities in Pakistan have arrested the leader of the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan Party, Khadim Hussain Rizvi. Rizvi was responsible for organizing the violent and nationwide protests that followed the acquittal of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman formally on death row for blasphemy.

Rizvi announced that a new wave of protests would start on November 25 to “pay tribute to the martyrs of his party.” He also publically threatened the Supreme Court Justices following their announcement that the court had acquitted Bibi.
