Ex-Pak PM Nawaz Sharif, Daughter In Lahore For Kulsoom Nawaz's Funeral

Former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif’s wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz dead at 68

Sharif was ousted from the premiership a month before his wife's diagnosis.

Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar are now serving jail terms in Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi after being convicted by an accountability court in a corruption case in July.

PML-N Spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb told the Associated Press that arrangements were being made to bring her remains back to Pakistan for burial.

Pakistan's jailed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar would be released on parole for a day to attend the funeral of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, sources said on Tuesday. Police will be responsible for their security and safety.

Nawaz, 68, who was first lady of Pakistan three times, was diagnosed with lymphoma in August a year ago and had been receiving treatment at a private hospital in London for months.

While speaking to Geo News before she was flown off from Rawalpindi to Lahore's Jati Umra for her mother's funeral, the PML-N leader said: "Today was extremely hard after learning of my mother's death".

It is likely that both sons may not return to Pakistan as they have been declared absconders by an accountability court in the off-shore properties case.

She served as the first lady of Pakistan for three non-consecutive terms from 1990-1993, 1997-1999 and 2013-2017.

Former first daughter Maryam Nawaz said Tuesday night she was "deeply saddened" by the fact that was unable to be by the bedside of her ailing mother, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, during her last moments.

She led defiant, lonely protests against the Musharraf regime to get her husband freed from prison.

Since his dismissal by the Supreme Court previous year Sharif has engaged in open confrontation with Pakistan's security establishment, accusing the military of engineering his fall from power, curbing democratic development and fostering links with militants.

Party leader Khawaja Imran Nazeer, speaking to the media in Lahore, said Begum Kulsoom may be laid to rest in the family home at Raiwind, but clarified that all decisions will be finalised only after consultation between family members. She graduated from the Forman Christian College in Lahore and received a Master's degree in Urdu from Punjab University in 1970.
