KARACHI: Begum Zarin Musharraf, mother of former president and chief of the All Pakistan Muslim League Gen Pervez Musharraf, passed away in the UAE on Friday after a long illness. She was 100.
Talking to Dawn, APML spokesperson Amaan Khan Tareen said Begum Zarin had been critical since 2013 and under treatment in the UAE.
He said Mr Musharraf was also under treatment in Dubai and it would be premature to say whether he would accompany the coffin of his mother or not.
Chief of the Army Staff Gen Qamar Bajwa offered condolences over Begum Zarin’s death.
The ISPR director general said in a tweet: “#COAS expresses heartfelt condolences on passing of mother of General Pervez Musharraf (Retired). May Allah bless the departed soul in eternal peace and give strength to the bereaved family, Aameen.”
