Haider Abbas Rizvi, a former Deputy Parliamentary Leader of MQM in the National Assembly of Pakistan, was recently captured driving Uber in Canada and the public has mixed feelings about it.
This MQM’s senior leader distanced himself from the main politics of the party and had been keeping a low profile by residing in Canada for a while now.
Earlier, a video of him driving an Uber was released on social media that sparked a dialogue on the internet. While some people are siding with him for trying to earn an honest living, others are arguing that he’s being punished for trying to rob the country.
Furqan Siddiqui, a Media Professional, claims to be proud of his friend trying for working honestly.
I’m getting a lot of Whatsapp msgs with Ex MNA of #MQM Haider Abbas Rizvi’s Uber profile in Canada. Saw a couple of tweets against him. I’m simply proud of my friend. At least he opted to work and earn rather than loot and spend like many other politicians of #Pakistan.

According to Senator T Mashhadi, the very fact that he is driving a taxi speaks volumes of his honesty & belief in dignity of labour.

Some people believe that Uber is lucky to have such a leader onboard.

And that this is not something he should be bashed over for.
I would appreciate if Haider Abbas Rizvi earns money through hard working as other people are making joke of him on social media must think that Uber job in other countries is very respectful, so we must support all those who do believe in ” Mehanat”. pic.twitter.com/Jko9MuhvRy

While most people are supporting him, there are others who are making fun of him for working with a cab company in Canada.
I’m not sure about the authenticity of this picture nor tweeting it grow against Haider Abbas Rizvi. But, alot to say if this is true, although no harm in driving an Uber & earning Halal but there was a time these faces were icons for #karachi and now sowing what was reaped! pic.twitter.com/UWcoQnbyyg
