Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) (Urdu: تحریک لبیک پاکستان‎ "Here-I-Am Movement Pakistan", referring to a phrase used in Islamic prayer), is an Islamic political party in Pakistan with Islamic ideology. The movement was founded by Khadim Hussain Rizvi.[3] The political party is known for widespread (often countrywide) street power and massive protests in opposition to any change in the blasphemy law of Pakistan. It came into existence, and subsequently rose to fame, after the hanging of Mumtaz Qadri which the political party states was unjustifiable. They demand that Sharia law be established as law of Pakistan through a gradual legal and political process.[4][dead link]

Most of its members belong to Barelvi school of thought. [5]

In 2017, they were alloted election symbol crane.[6] In the 2018 general election the movement won two seats in the Provincial Assembly of Sindh.[7]


It was formed on 1 August 2015 by Khadim Hussain Rizvi. Khadim Hussain Rizvi was born in Attock, Punjab. He founded a political party, Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), a political front for Tehreek Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah (TLYP). He has authority on the Hadith and also has memorized the Quran.

Khadim Hussain Rizviis an Islamic scholar of Sunni Brelvi school of thought. He used to deliver Friday sermons at Pir Makki Masjid, near Daata Darbar Lahore. When Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri killed Slaman Taseer, who termed 295C as black law, with 27 bullets, Khadim Hussain Rizvi showed open support for Mumtaz Qadri. It annoyed the government of Mian Nawaz Sharif and resulted in his job being terminated, confiscating all benefits of a long service in the Aukaf department. Khadim Hussain Rizvi happily accepted this and never requested any benefits. Rather his resolve to side with Mumtaz Qadri grew stronger. Khadim Hussain Rizvi is a disabled person on wheelchair due to an accident some years back. Yet he is one of the most traveling evangelist, delivering sermons in width and breadth of Pakistan.

In January 2016 Allama Sahib organized a rally in Lahore in favor of 295C. The rally was checked by police and the attendees had to face the water cannon and baton charge. Another time Allama Sahib was captured and put to prison. Though he is in wheel chair but he was dragged and forced to stand on legs. When he entered the prison, an inspector approached him and ordered to stand for search. Allama Sahib was unable to do it on which that cruel man pulled Khadim Hussain Rizvi out in demean manner. (Later Khadim Hussain Rizvi described that the man approached him for forgiveness of his cruel behavior. Reportedly the inspector had stroke of paralysis and is himself disabled now. Allama Sahib replied that I have done nothing to you. I even do not know you. You were performing your duty and I was performing mine.)

When Khadim Hussain Rizvi entered the jail he was handcuffed to his chair. A policeman would go one time at one cell and then the other and receive the reply that their is no space available. Finally they put Allama Shaib in a dirty cell the condition of which in his words is ” inhabitable even for animals”.

In March of the same year Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri embraced shahadat when the government misinformed his relatives that Ghazi Sahib is suffering from illness and all family should come to meet him. On the other hand Ghazi Sahib was sleeping and at midnight he was awakened and informed that his death sentence would be executed that very night to which he replied “I am ready”. The action of Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri and his great sacrifice are topics of his speeches.

On 9-November-2016 Khadim Hussain Rizvi organized a Fatihah prayer at the Dr. Iqbal Mausoleum Lahore. He and his followers were being restricted by the rangers deployed at his grave of Dr. Iqbal.Khadim Hussain Rizvi made a small speech in the shape of a dialogue with Iqbal and asked him the question why he stood up with the Ghazi Ilam ud Din Shaheed and he is a hero but Molvi Khadim Hussain stood with Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri and he is a terrorist. Khadim Hussain Rizvi is included in fourth schedule, a clause to restrict the movement of highly dangerous criminals who need official permission before their movement. Khadim Hussain Rizvi often say, “Look I am a disabled person on wheel chair and I am on fourth schedule for my crime of standing for the respect of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him)”. The antiterrorism laws have started to become tools for silencing opposition.

Quotes by Khadim Hussain Rizvi[edit]

→If someone opts to not serve the cause of Islam, Islam does not kneels before him requesting for help. Instead it empowers the weeks to stand before aggressors and awards them victory. →It is only Islam that honors a police constable that 6 million people attend his funeral. →The Islamic clerics, scholars and leaders who saved their mosques, madrasas and turbans instead of coming out to protect the respect of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him), their services are no more required by Islam.

→I can not understand clerics and Sufi visiting UK and western nations. What kind of preaching and service to Islam they do when these nations practice publishing of blasphemous cartoons and films. Islam preaches peace as well as self-respect. People teach Islam is peace and mean it to give out the message: →O daughters of Kashmir; you can jump in river Jehlum as there is no Shah Mehmood Ghaznavi coming to save your respect from Hindus, do not expect help from us as Islam teaches peace now.

→O daughters of Syria, no Salahud Din Ayyubi will come to save you as Islam preaches peace now a days. →O daughters and sons of Burma, don’t expect help from us as Islam teaches peace. →Ghazi Tanveer Qadri killed the qadiani (Asad Shah the false prophet) but we do not deplore his actions as our hero is one who killed 35000 qadiyanies in the Battle of Yamama. (Referring to first caliph of Islam Sayyudna Hazrat Siddiq E Akbar when his army killed followers of false prophet Musailma Kazzab)
