Lahore: Amid chants of “mother of democracy”, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of Pakistan’s former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was laid to rest on Friday as thousands of PML-N supporters and top politicians attended her funeral prayers.

Kulsoom, who died Tuesday in a London hospital after a year-long battle with throat cancer, was laid to rest at the Sharif family’s Jati Umra residence here next to the graves of her father-in-law Mian Sharif and brother-in-law Abbas Sharif.

Her funeral prayers, led by renowned cleric Tariq Jameel, were offered at a ground at Lahore’s Sharif Medical City, after which her body was transported to Jati Umra amid high security.
