The Police said that tensions had been ongoing between Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan and Shia Muslims along the procession route for the past few days. Shia Muslims say their procession always follows that route, while this organisation claims it shouldn’t pass by our mosque. After discussions with Shia Muslims, the Tehreek-e-Labbaik agreed to have no objections to this procession. However, it was attacked that day. Thirty people have been charged in this case, but no one has been arrested.
