Irum Azeem Farooque

KARACHI: Former Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Irum Azeem Farooque on Tuesday announced to join Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

“PTI leadership has been in touch with me since a few month and has Respectfully offered me to join them. Yes today I announce joining PTI,” Irum Farooque tweeted on Tuesday.

It is pertinent to note here that Irum Azeem Farooque announced to leave MQM after the then MQM chief Altaf Hussain’s anti-Pakistan statement on August 22, 2016.

Citing attack on media group in karachi and the alleged raising of ‘Pakistan Murdababad’ (death to Pakistan) slogan during the party’s hunger strike as reasons for her resignation, Mrs Farooqui had 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 (August 22).
