Nawaz Sharif's Wife Kulsoom Nawaz's Body Reaches Lahore, Funeral Tonight

Nawaz Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law granted parole, reach Lahore to attend Kulsoom's funeral

According to reports, a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight carrying the body of Kulsoom Nawaz will leave for Lahore from the Heathrow Airport, London on Thursday and land at the Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore early on Friday.

On Thursday, hundreds of people attended the funeral prayers of Begum Kulsoom at London's Regent Park mosque, which was separate from another one to take place in Lahore Friday. The family is now meeting people in Jati Umra, who have come to pay homage to Begum Kulsoom.

Upon reaching Pakistan, the funeral prayers of the former first lady will be offered on Friday at Sharif Medical City in Jati Umra at 5pm, PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said.

Her two sons - Hussain Nawaz and Hassan Nawaz - and Samdhi Ishaq Dar will stay in London.

Nawaz reportedly excused himself from meeting visitors who arrived at his residence in Raiwand to offer condolences and spent time in his room with close family members and friends.

Legal formalities have been completed and the family has received a death certificate issued by the Harley Street Clinic, where Begum Kulsoom died on Tuesday.

Shehbaz Sharif, Kulsoom Nawaz's brother-in-law and president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), along with her daughter Asma, grandson Zayd Hussain Sharif (Hussain Nawaz's son), and 11 other family members accompanied the body.

The Sharif family had requested that a five-day parole be granted to the three. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Peoples Party's delegations will attend the funeral prayers, Geo News reported. Nawaz, their daughter Maryam and son-in-law Capt (retd) M Safdar, who are serving prison terms in connection with a corruption case, were granted parole to attend the funeral.

The Home Department yesterday initially increased the parole limit to three days with effect from 12midnight Wednesday, but later extended it to five days (until Sunday midnight) to enable the incarcerated Sharifs to participate in the last rites of Begum Kulsoom.
