ISLAMABAD Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and former president Asif Ali Zardari have expressed deep grief and sorrow over the sad demise of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, who breathed her last in a London hospital today after protracted illness.
In their condolence message, the PPP Chairman and party co-chairman termed Begum Kulsoom Nawaz as a brave woman who fought for democracy during Musharraf regime.
They offered condolence and expressed sympathies with the members of bereaved family and prayed to Almighty Allah to rest the departed soul in eternal peace and grant courage and fortitude to the bereaved family members to bear this irreparable loss.
Earlier, the wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif had passed away in London’s Harley Street Clinic after prolonged illness.
Begum Kulsoom was under treatment at London’s Harley Street Clinic since June 2014. She was placed on life support earlier today after her health deteriorated last night.
Sources at the clinic said she had developed a lungs problem again.“She had been responding well without the ventilator until last night,” the sources said.
Begum Kulsoom was diagnosed with lymphoma (throat) cancer in August 2017.
The former first lady was born in 1950. She married former premier Nawaz Sharif in April 1971.
