Begum Kulsoom Nawaz passed away at London’s Harley Street Clinic on Tuesday after a prolonged battle with cancer.

The news was confirmed by PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif. Kulsoom Nawaz is survived by her husband and four children, Hassan, Hussain, Maryam and Asma.

“My sister-in-law and wife of Mian Nawaz Sharif, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz is no more. May her soul rest in peace,” Shehbaz Sharif said in a twitter announcement.

“Nawaz Sharif had always consulted Kulsoom Nawaz during his tough hours. She (Kulsoom Nawaz) challenged dictatorship courageously,” stated Shehbaz while adding at the same time late Kulsoom’s affiliation with democracy was proven and time-tested.

The body of Kulsoom Nawaz will be brought to Lahore where her funeral prayers will be held on Friday and she will be buried alongside her father-in-law, Mian Sharif, at Jati Umra.
