ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz will leave for London today, said a spokesperson of the Sharif family.
Begum Kulsoom Nawaz is critically ill and admitted to a hospital since the past few days, said the spokesperson.
“My mother is hospitalised again. Please remember her in your special prayers,” wrote Maryam on twitter.
“I know prayers can do wonders. Allah answers prayers. Thank you.”
Earlier in the day, Nawaz had asserted that uncivilised restrictions could not be placed on anyone in the country.
“The world has changed and so should we. Old mistakes should not be repeated,” he had said while talking to reporters inside the accountability court hearing corruption cases against him.
Referring to the Lahore High Court’s Monday verdict banning ‘anti-judiciary’ speeches, the former premier had said the court should make clear what ‘anti-judiciary’ means.
“We cannot restrict someone from speaking,” he had said, adding that he wanted everyone to go along together.
“Elected governments made historic decisions, including the atomic tests which were completely conducted by the civilian government,” claimed Nawaz.
The three-time prime minister said he does not regret moving on. “We moved on did but not compromise. The other side should have moved on too,” he asserted, terming unfortunate the dharnas (sit-ins) carried out in the country against his government.
“I see widespread discord if the people’s aspirations are not adhered to,” he said further.
