Three Times First Lady of Pakistan: Kulsoom Nawaz

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's wife, Begum Kulsoom passed away on Tuesday.

President of PML-N Shehbaz Sharif confirmed the passing of Kulsoom and said "My sister-in-law and wife of Mian Nawaz Sharif, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, is no longer with us".

In a statement, Prime Minister Imran Khan, a bitter rival to the Sharifs whose PTI handily beat the outgoing PML-N at a general election in July, said Nawaz Sharif and his daughter would be "provided all facilities that they are entitled to under law".

Ms. Kulsoom, who was under treatment at London's Harley Street Clinic since June 2014, was placed on life support earlier on Tuesday as her health deteriorated, Geo TV reported.

Party leader Khawaja Imran Nazeer, speaking to the media in Lahore, said Begum Kulsoom may be laid to rest in the family home at Raiwind, but clarified that all decisions will be finalised only after consultation between family members.

The 68-year-old had been diagnosed with early-stage lymphoma in August last year and had been London since, the Dawn reported. She was diagnosed with lymphoma previous year, barely a month after Nawaz Sharif was removed from office by the Supreme Court, which ordered him to face trial in an anti-corruption court.

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. She received a Master's degree in Urdu from Punjab University in 1970.

Kulsoom Nawaz married Nawaz Sharif in 1971 and her husband was prime minister of Pakistan on three occasions - 1990-1993, 1997-1999 and 2013-2017.
