Huge turnout for TLP chief Khadim Rizvi’s funeral at Lahore’s Minar-i-Pakistan
The funeral prayers for Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) chief Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi, who passed away on Thursday night, were offered at Lahore's Minar-i-Pakistan on Saturday afternoon.
Thousands of people gathered at the site to attend the funeral prayers with many complaining of mobile signal outages. The prayers were led by his son Saad Hussain Rizvi, who has been named the new TLP chief, according to TLP spokesman Salman Haider.
He was later laid to rest in the courtyard of Madressah Rehmatul Lil Alamin near Chowk Yateem Khana.
The city of Lahore started experiencing the impact of the death of the firebrand cleric when all entry points to the city and roads leading to his mosque faced traffic pressure, reporting long queues and jams. The pressure was set to grow today as thousands of his followers were expected to reach his funeral site and later to his burial site. https://www.dawn.com/news/1591590/huge-turnout-for-tlp-chief-khadim-rizvis-funeral-at-lahores-minar-i-pakistan
