Molvi Khadim Rizvi has been in news for Islamabad siege and holding the entire country hostage through sit-in rallies first in Islamabad and then country-wide. He is also known for his abusive language, hate speech against minority sects and religions and incitement to violence. He can’t seem to control it and isn’t apologetic about it. He said in an interview to a news channel that he owns his words and that they were allowed when said for a ’cause’ like his. He has been persistent in throwing swear words at his opponents.
