*LONDON: Hussain Nawaz has contradicted the media reports that his ailing mother Begum Kulsoom Nawaz has passed away.*
According to state-run wire service APP, Hussain said “She is still gravely ill and risky patient and on ventilator (life supporting machine) although she is in better health position and more stable as compared to the first day when she suffered a cardiac arrest in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital”.
He was talking to Pakistani media outside the Harley Street Clinic, where his mother was admitted after a cardiac arrest, a few days back.
He said that his mother was more stable as compared to the first day of admission in the hospital a few days back.
Hussain Nawaz said that due to a clot in her lungs, she suffered a cardiac arrest and was kept in the ICU and under observation.
He said that doctors have told them that she would be kept on the ventilator and no hurry in removing it.
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in his brief remarks outside the hospital earlier said that health condition of his spouse Begum Kulsoom Nawaz was still critical and sought prayers of the nation for her good health.
On Friday a number of PML-N leaders including former Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif and Nihal Hashmi visited the Harley Street hospital to inquire about the health of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz .
Nihal Hashmi said that Begum Kulsoom Nawaz had rendered great sacrifices for the cause of democracy against dictatorship in Pakistan.
