Nawaz Sharif’s wife Kulsoom Nawaz dies in London

She was diagnosed with lymphoma past 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.

Kulsoom Nawaz passed away on Tuesday after a prolonged illness.

Muttahida Qaumi Movement's Syed Raza Ali Abidi asked for early bail for Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar on humanitarian grounds.

Kulsoom's remains will be brought back by relative to Lahore, where the funeral is expected to take place at the family home in Raiwind.

Meanwhile, Shehbaz Sharif will leave for the United Kingdom on the next available flight to bring back the body of his sister-in-law. "She will be laid to rest in Pakistan", the family confirmed.

She would not take to politics again until a year ago, after her husband - now prime minister again - was disqualified by the Supreme Court from holding a public office.

Born into a Kashmiri family in Pakistan's Punjab, Kulsoom graduated from the Forman Christian College University.

He added: "I'm happy I was part of such a great show". "Perfect", Teigen can be heard saying after Legend places his latest award. John now joins the ranks of other EGOT icons like Audrey Hepburn , Andrew Lloyd Webber , Whoopi Goldberg , and Mel Brooks .

The funeral prayers of Pakistan's former first lady will be offered at the Regent's Park mosque in central London.

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

Kulsoom Nawaz spent these years in the background, as the daughter-in-law of a super-rich industrial family with vast political influence.

Mushahidullah Khan said that they would apply for the release of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz from jail to attend the last rites of the deceased. As a result, the family welcomed the military coup of 1977 which toppled Mr Bhutto's government and sent him to the gallows two years later following a controversial trial. Party leaders have also said that she occasionally wrote many of Nawaz's speeches.

But she could never return to the country to take her oath as a member of parliament. He also directed the Pakistani High Commission in London to help the family. "She's contributed famously to my father's life and to democracy in Pakistan". "May God bless her soul".

"COAS expresses his grief and heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family on sad demise of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz".
