Kulsoom Nawaz: Ex-Pakistan PM's wife dies in London

Kulsoom Nawaz

Begum Kulsoom, the wife of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, died on Tuesday, said Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) President Shehbaz Sharif.

In the video, a visibly emotional Sharif can be seen talking to his unconscious wife in a London hospital before his return to Pakistan on July 12 to serve his 11-year jail term.

Begum Kulsoom Nawaz leaves behind daughters four children, Asma, Maryam, Hasan and Hussain.

Hospitalised for eight months at Hartley clinic in the British capital, reports on Tuesday morning said her health deteriorated further and she was placed back on the ventilator.

Kulsoom Nawaz - who became interim president of the PML-N party - made her own political headlines during her detention when she defied her guards and led a procession from her Model Town residence across Lahore city.

The three-time first lady was diagnosed with lymphoma, a form of cancer that affects the immune system, in August past year.

She was elected from Lahore's NA-120 constituency in a by-election after her husband was disqualified from the seat by the Supreme Court a year ago but left for Britain even before she could start campaigning.

Referring to her mother, Maryam Nawaz had said that she had dauntlessly challenged a usurper when "most men did not".

But she could never return to the country to take her oath as a member of parliament. She received a Master's degree in Urdu from Punjab University in 1970. She was diagnosed with lymphoma previous year, barely a month after Nawaz Sharif was removed from office by the Pakistan Supreme Court after being ordered to face trial in an anti-corruption court. Both were arrested on arrival and have been imprisoned since.

Prime Minister Imran Khan sent his condolences on the death of Kulsoom Nawaz and assured the bereaved family of full legal support within the ambit of the law and constitution. And when he was arrested by the Musharraf regime in the 1999 coup, she spearheaded the campaign for his release.

The Indian premier conveyed his deepest condolences to the Sharif family. He also directed the Pakistani High Commission in London to help the family. "May Allah bless the departed soul eternal peace at Heaven-Amen", COAS", he tweeted.

Former Pakistan Cricket Board chairperson Najam Sethi also expressed his grief.
