Veteran Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan on Tuesday apologised for his remarks on Kulsoom Nawaz’s illness hours after the former first lady breathed her last at a London hospital.

Earlier this year, the veteran PPP leader had accused the PML-N of politicising Kulsoom Nawaz’s illness. He had claimed the hospital where she was undergoing treatment was owned by the Sharif’s.

Aitzaz tendered an apology while speaking to a local TV channel. Terming her demise a profound loss, he said he would attend the deceased final rites.

Kulsoom remained hospitalised for eight months at Hartley Clinic in the British capital. Nawaz and daughter Maryam were informed of her demise by prison authorities.

    I stopped listening to him because of his shallow talk and greed for high office. He is no scholar but a lame politician! Too late, he should have apologized earlier. Recommend

    No one will refer to this a U-Turn be it Shehla Raza on minorities or Aitzaz Ahsan on Kulsoom Nawaz. Although what he said is true that even now the goons of pml n like Rana Sanaullah has been politicizing the death of Kulsoom Nawaz (May Allah have mercy on her) and point scoring on Muje kiyun nikaala and wrong detention of a convicted Sicillian mafia family. Both these parties have something in common i.e. No Sharam, No Haya no etiquettes.Recommend
