I am using a link testing tool called XENU.
To check the broken links of a site we need to pass the login username and password in the url as a post request.

Just some input which might hopefully clear your situation.

In your form you are using method as post. Then isn't the username and password going to go in the post body?
So if you are trying to get these parameters from the query string itself isn't that not going to work?

Further, you really shouldn't include sensitive information such as a password in the URL even if you are using https. What if somebody is shoulder browsing?
And browser might be storing this as history information.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
