Earlier Maryam tweeted the news that her mother Begum Kulsoom Nawaz had opened her eyes for a few seconds on Thursday for the first time in weeks, she also requested her followers to pray for her mother’s well-being.

“First time in 30 days, Ami opened eyes for a few seconds. Don’t know if she saw or registered us. [Begum Nawaz] is still not conscious and on ventilator. Prayers solicited.”

Maryam also tweeted that her children remain defiant against all odds, further wishing them a gloomy farewell just before her departure from the London’s Heathrow airport.
