KARACHI: Controversy hit an audio message of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder Altaf Hussain after a party member, who has recently resigned, ridiculed the audio statement, raising questions over its authenticity, Samaa reported Friday.

Irum Azeem Farooque, who resigned from MQM following an internal crisis, broached the discussion on twitter in a series of tweets.

Farooque says she supports Farooq Sattar, who has parted ways with MQM founder Altaf Hussain and the party’s London Secretariat following Altaf Hussain’s anti-Pakistan speech.

“Those who have heard Altaf Bhai knows it's not his voice recording, Azizabadi gee kiya Kar dita tusi nay. Yar na hansao plzzz,” she said on Twitter.

"Horns at the background London may tu it's a crime to keep honking horns, at this time? Liaqatabad ke bus ka horn tu chup Kara do Azizabadi #Blunder,” she said.

“Let this be very clear to all I had sent my resignation2the Party Leader Doc Farooq Sattar after the 22nd Aug But I support #MQMPakistan,” she said about his resignation.

“When I m back will handover personally my Resignation to the speaker Sindh Assembly.”

MQM London Secretariat leaders claim that the audio message is genuine and was issued from London.

Wasay Jalil, a senior leader of MQM London Secretariat, said Irum enjoys no status in the party, adding that she is attempting to create confusion.

The message was uploaded on twitter handles of Jalil and Nadeem Nusrat, another London-based leader. - Samaa
