These views were expressed by member MQM Rabita Committee, Raza Haroon while talking to media after an emergency meeting of MQM body held at Azizabad here on Wednesday.
He said an important joint meeting of the MQM Rabita Committee London and Pakistan members held detailed discussions on the prevailing situation in the country as well as other matters of vital importance.
Raza Haroon said the Rabita Committee expressed regret that if the reported provocative speech of Dr. Zulfiqar Mirza, was not a part of the policy of PPP, then why it has not been clarified and why notice of the same has not been taken till date.
If the speech is not clarified, then MQM will be free to take opinion from its office- bearers, supporters and people with regard to its future course of action about remaining part of the government or parting ways.
The MQM leader said his party is a pro-democracy political entity and it considers difference of opinion as part of democracy.

Speaking about separation of JUI-F from the government, he said the Rabita Committee considers the decision of the JUI-F as its democratic right.
