Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar resigns after raising voice for Azam Swati

Pakistani Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar who has been vocal against leaked “dirty videos” of his 75-year-old senate colleague Azam Swati, resigned from his seat.

On Tuesday, Mustafa Nawaz said that his party PPP wants him to resign for raising his voice against such mischief.

He tweeted, “met a senior leader from the party today. He conveyed that the party leadership wasn’t happy with my political positions and wanted my resignation from the senate. I gladly agreed to resign.”

He also said that as a political worker, I cherish my right to express my opinions on matters of public interest.

He announced his resignation in person to Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani on Wednesday.

Earlier, treasury members in the National Assembly sought the formation of a parliamentary committee to look into the PTI’s allegations that a disturbing video was leaked to Azam Swati’s family to show their solidarity for him.

According to Dr. Nafisa Shah and Religious Affairs Minister, Mufti Abdul Shakoor invading someone’s privacy is against the Constitution. They both added that parliament needed to take notice of this event.

Mufti Abdul Shakur argued over Swati’s video and claimed that the PTI senator had been used as a victim. He claimed that tomorrow, anyone could experience what Azam Swati did. The minister warned the assembly that “even I could experience it.”
