"The few times that I met her, she came across as a good Pakistani housewife; she was educated, articulate and intelligent". Sharif and his daughter Maryam Sharif are at present imprisoned in Rawalpindi jail.

She was suffering from cancer. She was running for a by-election in her PML-N's stronghold of Lahore at the time.
