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]

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

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