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).
