Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of a London hospital late Thursday after her condition deteriorated further, her family said on social media.
Maryam Nawaz, her daughter, and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shahbaz Sharif, both confirmed the development on Twitter, with the former making an “earnest request for duas [prayers]”.
Former president Asif Ali Zardari, in a statement issued earlier today (Friday), expressed good wishes for Begum Kulsoom’s recovery. He said the Bhutto family and Pakistan Peoples Party is praying for Begum Kulsoom’s health.
