Ahead of Sharif’s return, picture of ex-Pakistan PM with ailing wife goes viral

Prime News, International (London), July 13:- Ahead of Pakistan’s graft accused former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s arrival back home, a picture of the PML-N leader with his ailing wife Begum Kulsoom and daughter Maryam has suddenly gone viral on Twitter.

The picture of the father-daughter duo with ailing Begum Kulsoom at London’s Harley Street Clinic has evoked an emotional response from Twitterati and prayers for the speedy recovery of PML-N leader’s wife.

The picture shows Maryam breaking down into tears and Nawaz keeping his hands on Kulsoom’s head.

A Pakistan-based journalistic body tweeted the picture and captioned it, “This picture will haunt many in future. Remember.”

While some are seeing it as an emotional picture, some Twitter users said that photo will be marked as the ugliest face of Pakistani Establishment.

“This picture will be marked as the ugliest face of Pakistani Establishment for a hundred years,” a Twitter user said.

Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz, who were convicted by a Pakistani court in the Avenfield Apartments case and sentenced to 10 and 7 years in jail respectively, boarded a foreign flight late on Thursday and are scheduled to arrive in Lahore via Abu Dhabi at 6.15 pm (local time) on Friday.

“Maryam and I are coming back to face prison and even if they send me to the gallows, we know that freedom cannot be won without sacrifice. It is not easy to leave my wife on a ventilator in a hospital but I am returning along with my daughter to play our role to rid of this slavery,” Nawaz Sharif was quoted as saying at a party conference in the ballroom of the Grosvenor House Hotel in central London`s Mayfair district.
