Former federal minister, Shireen Mazari announced to quit the Pakistan Tehrik e Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday. She also said she would not take part in active politics and would not be part of any political party.

Speaking to the media in Islamabad, Mazari said that she is leaving politics because of her children and family.

Mazari added that today, she is addressing the media to discuss two things. “I have condemned the events that took place on May 9 and 10. I have condemned all forms of disorder,” she added.

She said that during her 12-day arrest, her health and daughter Imaan Mazari have suffered significantly, which is why she has decided to quit politics.

“I am leaving politics because of my children and family. My family and children are my first priority,” she reiterated.

Earlier in the day, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) issued a notice of contempt to the federal capital’s inspector general (IG) in a plea related to the arrest of Mazari.

On Monday, Mazari was taken into custody for the fourth time in 10 days from outside Adiala Jail despite being released on court orders.
