The younger Sharif was ac­com­pa­nied by his son Hamza Shah­baz and is ex­pected to re­turn on Wed­nes­day or Thurs­day.

PM Nawaz Sharif’s daugh­ter Maryam Nawaz Sharif said on her official Twit­ter ac­count that the surgery would be for “per­fo­ra­tion of the heart”, a com­pli­ca­tion from an ear­lier pro­ce­dure in 2011. “Prayers are the most ef­fect & po­tent medicine. Mil­lions will pray for him,” she tweeted late Fri­day night. A state­ment from the prime min­is­ter’s of­fice said the prime min­is­ter was con­tin­u­ing to over­see state af­fairs in the days be­fore his surgery.

“It is how­ever nat­u­ral and un­der­stand­able that the Prime Min­is­ter will be off from any ac­tiv­i­ties when is ac­tu­ally op­er­ated on by the doc­tors,” the state­ment said. “God will­ing soon af­ter the surgery, the Prime Min­is­ter will be su­per­vis­ing State’s af­fairs with the same spirit and en­ergy.” Sharif has fre­quently trav­elled abroad for med­i­cal treat­ment in the past year.—SABAH
