Twenty workers of the Tehreek Labbaik were released under the agreement with Maulana Khadim Rizvi on Monday.
Maulana Khadim Rizvi had said that they would end the Faizabad sit-in when the government would start implementing the agreement.
“We will end the sit-in if all the workers were released by tonight,” he added.
Following the voluntary resignation of Federal Law Minister Zahid Hamid, the government and protesters reached an agreement on Monday to end the sit-in.
Khadim Hussain Rizvi, the leader of Tehreek Labbaik made the official announcement to end the sit-in around 10:30 am. He appealed to protesters across the country to disperse, adding that the Faizabad-based protesters are packing up their things and will soon vacate the sit-in site.
Rizvi also temporarily took the media hostage after he learned that his press conference was not given live coverage due to the government’s ban. However, media personnel was given safe passage after the Rangers intervened.
