Social Media insinuates that Kulsoom Nawaz is no more!
LONDON: Social media was recently used to misguide gullible people about the death of KSA’s Crown Prince. But it transpired that all the campaign was a hoax as he was seen with Putin watching a football match at World Cup. Similarly, some conspiracy theorists and rumor mongers are telling that Kulsoom Nawaz is clinically dead.
Hussain Nawaz denies his mother’s death: Hussain Nawaz here on Friday contradicted the media reports that his ailing mother Begum Kalsoom Nawaz has passed away. Talking to Pakistani media outside the Harley Street Clinic this afternoon, where his mother was admitted after a cardiac arrest, a few days back, he 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 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. He quoting doctors said that his mother Begum Kalsoom Nawaz was more stable as compared to the first day of her cardiac arrest in the ICU a few days back.
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in his brief remark outside the hospital said that health the condition of his spouse Begum Kalsoom 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, Nihal Hashmi visited the Harley Street hospital to inquired about the health of Begum Kalsoom Nawaz. Talking to APP Nihal Hashmi said that Begum Kalsoom Nawaz had rendered great sacrifices for the cause of democracy against dictatorship in Pakistan. She, he recalled, was a brave, noble and courageous women who led the PML-N when her spouse former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was sent in exile by a dictator. Nihal Hashmi prayed for the good health of Begum Kalsoom Nawaz. It may be mentioned here that Begum Kalsoom Nawaz suffered a cardiac arrest a few days back and was shifted to Harley Street Clinic intensive care unit and placed on the ventilator (Life support machine). According to hospital sources, doctors were making all their efforts by providing Begum Kalsoom Nawaz best medical treatment and greatest remedy.app
One of the messages being propagated by means of social media is this: Today at 09.15am I made it through all hard way to 79 Harley Street Clinic, London, W1G 8PZ. All doors closed, all entries banned… To my luck, I was taken in by one of the UK’s most famous surgeons, Dr. Ellamushi, Spine Consultant, who in June 2006 brought me back to life from my permanent paralysis and disability, and to whom I dedicated my book, “The Birth of a Bomber”, then. Kulsoom Baji is in Cabin 3d, lying there from weeks. Her Nurse, Miss Andrietta Ingie, as her nameplate shows, is a Bulgarian born British. I confirm unchallenged that this honorable lady is No More in this World. She is medically declared dead. Unfortunately, it is for the first time in Harley St history that a dead body is put on artificial machines, well paid and all managed for some nefarious designs. All PMLN members interested to visit there in person are welcome to call me on my number +44 7889884678 and must endeavor to make it there anytime between 3 pm and 6 pm. Shame on Nawaz Shareef and his Most Hatred Daughter Maryam. Playing with sober deaths. They are animals, rather even worse. I curse myself and deserve unconditional severe penance for having supported MNS for last 15 years. This man, MNS, is beyond any human description. Farooq Malik Bangash London, 22 Jun18.
The conspiracy theorists attempt to establish that since mega-corruption cases against Nawaz Sharif clan are in the final stages and if the decision comes against them they might face imprisonment, they are hiding behind the ventilator story to remain out of Pakistan till election results are announced and favorable governments are formed.
