Irum-Farooque

KARACHI: Hours after attack on ARY News office by Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) workers, party leader Irum Azeem Farooque announced her resignation from MQM, ARY News reported on Monday.

Citing attack on media and the alleged raising of ‘Pakistan Murdababad’ (death to Pakistan) slogan during the party’s hunger strike as reasons for her resignation, Mrs Farooqui said that she had already resigned two days ago but didn’t disclose it because of party’s ongoing strike but is really disappointed to hear the slogans and is announcing it today.

 “Pakistan Zindabad, I condemn those who call it Murdababad,” Irum tweeted later on.

Irum, who also works as a human rights activist, earlier also condemned the attack on ARY News office in Karachi’s Saddar area, which left three people injured and left the reception and marketing section of the media group completely destroyed.
