Gen Musharraf’s ailing mother passes away in Dubai | The Express Tribune


KARACHI:

Former president and chief of All Pakistan Muslims League (APML) General (retd) Pervez Musharaf’s ailing mother has passed away in Dubai, his party spokesperson said on Friday.

Zareen Musharraf died at the age of around 100 after prolonged illness, APML spokesperson Mehreen Malik told The Express Tribune.

She said the former military ruler received the news of passing of his elderly mother at a private hospital in Dubai, where he has been admitted for medical treatment since 2019.

 

Begum Zareen was born in India’s Lucknow in 1920 and was settled in Dubai with her son.

The details of her funeral will be announced soon, said the spokesperson, adding that she might be laid to rest in Dubai as it was difficult for Musharraf to come to Pakistan due to his medical condition.

The former president is suffering from amyloidosis, a rare disease caused by a build-up of an abnormal protein called amyloid in organs and tissues throughout the body.

The 78-year old was diagnosed with the rare disease at a hospital in Dubai in 2019.
