The news came on Thursday that Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) chief Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi has passed away. Family sources confirmed that he had been suffering from fever for the past few days. He complained about it as he led a protest at the Faizabad Interchange a few days ago.
On Thursday, he was brought to Sheikh Zayed Hospital, where sources have said that he was dead on arrival.

Prime Minister Imran Khan was informed of his passing, and so he presented condolences to the TLP leader’s family. He wrote in his tweet:
On the passing of Maulana Khadim Hussain Rizvi, my condolences go to his family. Inna lillahi Wa Inna ilayhi raji’un.

Sometime later, there were separate instances of TLP members claiming that Khadim Hussain Rizvi was still alive. Twitter was raging on for quite a bit of time.

Soon after, however, senior TLP leader Syed Inayat ul Haq Shah released a video to shut down the ongoing rumors. He said that Khadim Hussain’s son was under the assumption that he saw his father’s hand move. That little piece of information stretched into rumors of him breathing again. He confirmed that Khadim Hussain Rizvi has indeed passed away.
