He says the death of Kulsoom Nawaz was a big tragedy that had saddened everybody

Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was laid to rest on Friday as thousands of people, top politicians and PML-N supporters attended her funeral prayers in Lahore.

Former first lady's funeral congregation will be held in Sharif medical city where the arrangements are being done to bid farewell to her.

Nawaz Sharif and other Sharif family members excluding 68-year-old Kulsoom's two sons Hassan and Hussain Nawaz attended the prayers. The funeral in London, which is separate from another set to take place in Lahore, was arranged since the deceased PML-N leader's sons Hasan and Hussain can not travel to Pakistan.

A Pakistan International Airlines' flight carrying the body landed at the Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore at around 6:45 am (local time) today.

The three were released from the Adiala Jail on parole, hours after Sharif's ailing wife Kulsoom, passed away at a hospital in London on Tuesday.

The PMLN workers were chanting "mother of democracy" when her casket was brought for the funeral prayers. She is to be buried on Friday.

Along with him, Sharif's daughter, grand children and other immediate family members will land with the body of Kulsoom Nawaz. Her sons - Hassan and Hussain Nawaz - did not return to the country from London for the funeral.

Both Sharifs said they had broken no law and there was no proof the residences were purchased with money from corruption.

The three-time Premier, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Mohammad Safdar, now serving prison terms on corruption charges, were granted parole by the Punjab government to attend Begum Kulsoom's funeral.

Meanwhile, the Punjab home department has issued a notification announcing an extension in the parole already awarded to Sharif for additional five days - September 12 (4 pm) to September 17 (4 pm).

Funeral prayers were offered for Begum Kulsoom at London's Regent Park mosque on Thursday where hundreds showed up to pay their respects.

The PML-N president had also shared that his brother and niece were adamant that they won't submit a request for parole to be able to attend Kulsoom Nawaz's funeral.
