Begum Kulsoom Laid To Rest In Jati Umra

Begum Kulsoom Nawaz laid to rest in her family graveyard in Jati Umra.

Begum Kulsoom Nawaz's Funeral Prayers were offered at a ground at Lahore's Sharif Medical City.

Renowned Religious Scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel led the Funeral Prayers.

Later, her body was transported to the Sharif Family's Jati Umra residence, where she was laid to rest near the graves of her father-in-law Mian Sharif and brother-in-law Abbas Sharif.

A mammoth crowd of thousands of politicians, PML-N supporters and well-wishers had gathered to attend the funeral prayers.

Hundreds of policemen and rangers were deployed for the security while barbed wire was used to separate high-profile attendees.

A protective human chain was formed around Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif and Maulana Tariq Jameel as the Funeral Prayers were offered.

Begum Kulsum's body was moved to Jati Umra this morning, almost half an hour after a flight carrying it from London landed at Allama Iqbal International Airport. Her body was received by members of the Sharif family, including Hamza Shahbaz, and was later transported to Jati Umra via ambulance.

The body was transferred to an ambulance directly from the airplane and taken to Sharif Medical City.

Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain Retired Safdar, who have been released on parole, were also taken to Sharif Medical City to pay their respects.
