PESHAWAR: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has prayed for quick recovery of cancer-suffering Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

Media reports said the army chief sent the former first lady a bouquet of flowers and stated in his message that he was praying for Kulsoom Nawaz and her family in these trying times.

“We are praying for your quick recovery and send well wishes your way, wish you become healthy again by the grace of Allah,” he said.

Kulsoom Nawaz is in critical condition after cardiac arrest on Thursday. She is on life support since many days and the family is yet to make a decision on removing the ventilator. Nawaz Sharif Wednesday said he has never seen Kulsoom Nawaz conscious since his arrival to London hospital. He thanked the well-wishers for their prayers for his ailing wife.
