The Freedom Party which is known for its anti-Islam stance announced last month that it will hold a caricature competition depicting Prophet Mohammad. This statement from Khadim Hussain Rizvi came in response to plan of such a caricature competition being conducted in Holland (The Netherlands) which demeans Islam in some way or the other.

Khadim Hussain Rizvi said that if he was given an atomic bomb then he will destroy Holland and erase its existence before it can hold such a competition. TLP is a hardline Islamist political group in Pakistan which staged massive protests in Islamabad last November to oppose changes in the blasphemy laws. More than 2000 members of the TLP also staged a 3-week long demonstration in Faisalabad and hindered life in the region.

Khadim Hussain Rizvi has been warned several times for promoting sectarianism and he was even barred from public service. His recently formed political party is now grabbing the attention of the political analysts as well as the Pakistani media.
