The funeral prayer of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s wife Begum Kulsoom will be offered on Thursday in London’s Regent Park mosque.
PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif and other family members have flown to London to attend the funeral and bring back Kulsoom’s body back to Pakistan.
A PIA flight carrying the casket will fly from Heathrow airport tomorrow at 10pm. It will arrive in Pakistan on Friday at 6am after which a second funeral prayer will be held at Jati Umra.
Kulsoom will be laid to rest the same day beside the grave of her father-in-law Mian Sharif at Jati Umra. Nawaz Sharif sons Hassan and Hussain Nawaz won’t be in Lahore to attend the funeral prayers owing to legal complications.
On the other hand, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar have been released on parole from Adiala Jail and shifted to Jati Umra.
