WATCH: Video Of Nawaz Sharif's Final Goodbye To Begum Kulsoom Nawaz Goes Viral

Darpan News Desk IANS, 11 Sep, 2018
  • WATCH: Video Of Nawaz Sharif's Final Goodbye To Begum Kulsoom Nawaz Goes Viral

An unseen video of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif bidding farewell to his wife Begum Kulsoom Sharif for the last time has gone viral on social media soon after her death in London Tuesday.

 

In the video, a visibly emotional Sharif can be seen talking to his unconscious wife in a London hospital before his return to Pakistan on July 12 to serve his 11-year jail term.

 

Nawaz Sharif can be heard saying in Urdu, "May God give you strength."

 

"Open your eyes, Kulsoom," he is heard pleading to her.

 

Ahead of his departure from London, Sharif had said his wife finally opened her eyes for a few seconds -- something he had revealed a day prior that he wished for.

 
 
 
 
 
 

He, however, regretted having to leave her in such state to return to the country.

 

At that time, he had said that he was leaving behind his ailing wife in Allah's protection and returning to Pakistan regardless of whether he was "taken to prison or gallows".

 

Kulsoom Sharif died on Tuesday in London after a protracted battle with throat cancer.

 

Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar are currently serving jail terms in Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi after being convicted by an accountability court in a corruption case in July.
