KARACHI: Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) in Sindh, Irum Azeem Farooqui resigned from her seat as well as the membership of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Monday.

Irum Farooqui said that she believed in ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ (Long Live Pakistan) and not ‘Pakistan Murdabad’ (Death to Pakistan).

In a tweet, Irum said that she had decided to resign two days earlier but didn’t announce due to the hunger strike. She added that she felt ashamed after watching the video of MQM chief Altaf Hussain inciting violence in Karachi.

She appealed to MQM workers not to take the law into their hands. Irum Farooqui said that violence was solution to nothing and condemned the attack on private TV channels.
