Sharifs unhappy with Hussain’s second marriage
By Mubasher Bukhari
LAHORE: Serious differences have come up within Sharif family after Hussain Nawaz, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s son, got married to his son’s Lebanese tutor without the consent of his (Hussain’s) parents, sources told Daily Times on Wednesday.
However, sources said the story was an old one now and Hussain also had two daughters with Abla Tagrid (his Lebanese wife).
Hussain got involved with Abla when she started tutoring his son at Saroor Palace in Jeddah three years ago, sources said, adding that the couple married secretly. “As soon as Nawaz Sharif and Kulsoom Nawaz came to know about the marriage, they asked Hussain to leave Abla, but he refused,” they added.
Sources also said that after her wedding, Abla lived with her parents for a little while, but moved to a large house provided to her by Hussain. Sources said Saira Hussain, Hussain’s first wife, had also left Saroor Palace after coming to know that her husband had taken a second wife, and she moved in with her brother. Her parents Mr and Mrs Salahuddin had also arrived in Jeddah, they added.
“They have discussed the issue with Nawaz and Kulsoom and have asked them to force Hussain to divorce Abla,” sources said.
