This is a jukugo word that uses the on'yomi readings of the kanji. You haven't learned this reading for 違 yet, so here's a mnemonic to help you:
If you find yourself in violation of the law just pull out your pet eagle (い). Eagles are so majestic, they'll forget all about your transgression and let you go. If you're going to go be anti-something make sure you bring that eagle. People seem to care more about animals than other people like that.
