Spokesper­son for the PML-N Mar­riyum Au­rangzeb on Wed­nes­day evening an­nounced that Begum Kul­soom Nawaz’s fu­neral pray­ers will be of­fered on Fri­day, Septem­ber 14, at the Sharif Med­i­cal City in Jati Umra. Party sources in La­hore had ear­lier con­firmed to the me­dia that Begum Kul­soom would be laid to rest at the Jati Umra res­i­dence of the Sharif fam­ily. Con­gre­ga­tional pray­ers (Rasm-e-Qul) for the ben­e­fit of the de­ceased will be of­fered on Septem­ber 16 (Sun­day) from Asr (late af­ter­noon) to Maghrib (sun­set), Au­rangzeb an­nounced. For­mer prime min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif, his daugh­ter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law re­tired cap­tain Mo­ham­mad Saf­dar had been re­leased from Rawalpindi’s Adi­ala jail on pa­role in the early hours of Wed­nes­day, hours af­ter Begum Kul­soom Nawaz’s demise in a Lon­don hos­pi­tal. They are cur­rently at Jati Umra, await­ing the fu­neral. Three rooms in­side the res­i­dence have been de­clared a sub-jail, Dawn News TV re­ported. Mean­while, PML-N Pres­i­dent Shah­baz Sharif ar­rived in Lon­don in the early hours of Thurs­day to at­tend Begum Kul­soom’s fu­neral pray­ers at the Re­gent’s Park mosque. He will ac­com­pany Begum Kul­soom’s body back to La­hore. Fam­ily sources told Dawn that Kul­soom’s sons would not ac- com­pany her body to La­hore, though her other daugh­ter, Asma, and grand­son, Zikriya Sharif, would go with the cas­ket to Pak­istan. “A PIA flight car­ry­ing the body will ar­rive here on Fri­day morn­ing and she is likely to be laid to rest the same day be­side the grave of her fa­ther-in-law Mian Sharif at Jati Umra,” they said.
